A whole house inspection is a professional, objective visual examination of the condition of the home.  The inspection will educate and inform the buyer regarding a home’s good features as well as any areas that may require future attention.  We also will thoroughly explain how to best correct any possible defects that are discovered.  

Home buyers now entering the marketplace view inspections as a way to gain valuable information about what for many is one of the largest financial commitment of a lifetime.  The inspection will allow the prospective buyer to make a knowledgeable buying decision using our thorough and informative reports.  It provides peace of mind while reducing, as much as possible, the risk in buying a property. 

Finegan Inspection Services also offers termite, radon, or mold inspections as additional services for our customers. 

A complete home inspection includes a thorough examination of the home from top to bottom.  Briefly, the whole house inspector will examine the heating and cooling (HVAC) systems (cooling system as temperature allows), the interior plumbing and electrical systems, the roof and attic, fireplaces, most appliances, foundation, basement, and the visible structure, and the installation of all windows and doors. The home inspection does not cover most cosmetic issues which may be easily discerned by a prospective buyer.

A home inspection will also point out positive aspects of a home as well as the type of maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good condition, or ways to correct minor flaws.

The inspection report is limited to the condition of the home at the time of the inspection.  Also, compliance with local codes is commonly excluded, except for safety items.  While there is no absolute standard definition for the "major," many consider it to mean an immediate $500 to $1,000 or more to correct the defective item.  The term "defect" is most often held to mean a part that is not functioning or serving the purpose as intended when it is installed. 

After the inspection, our clients have a much clearer understanding of what it is they are about to purchase and are able to make their purchase decisions confidently.
