About AB Home Inspection
To homeowners and buyers in Sierra County:
I understand that choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work–a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
The home buying process can be stressful. A wealth of information will be presented to you quickly during the home inspection, including a report, checklist, photograph, and the inspector’s own insight and comments. Don’t become overwhelmed—most of the inspection will be recommendations for maintenance and minor imperfections. The issues that really matter and should be addressed include:
- Major defects that could cause structural failure
- Things that if left unrepaired will lead to major defects
- Legal issues that hinder your ability to occupy or insure the home
- Safety hazards
That being said, keep in mind that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything, and no home is perfect. So decide what is important to you in order to continue with the purchase and what can be let go. I will be happy to advise you on each item of concern I find for the home so you can make an educated decision.
I use high-tech equipment such as a gas leak detector and Sure Test Meter. I’ve completed NACHI’s Code of Ethics Obstacle Course and fulfill 18 hours of continuing education every year. My inspection reports are easy to read and understand. These qualifications in addition to my experience and dedication to each client make me the best choice for your home inspection in Williamsburg. Contact me to schedule an inspection.
