A typical inspection takes about 2-3 hours to complete, but can vary depending on the actual size of the house, number of bathrooms, number of heating systems, etc. Reports are delivered electronically within 24 hours after the inspection.
I provide a full narrative report with pictures. It usually takes as long to compile the report as it does to do the actual inspection. Each identified issue is reviewed and evaluated for the risk of damage to the building or personal safety, and I provide recommendations and estimated cost required to address the situation. And, after the inspection, I am always available for FREE telephone consultation. Unlike many of my competitors, I do not provide a checklist of problems, an abbreviated report, or a "canned" report.
More so with home inspections than anything else, you get what you pay for. Do not get the cheapest
inspection just to fulfill your obligation on the agreement-to-purchase. A cheap inspection by an inexperienced
inspector could fail to uncover problems that may cost you thousands of dollars to repair, or which may be
identified when you resell the house, resulting in you having to then negotiate a lower selling price for your
home at that time. View the sample report below to see why Seacliff Inspections is better!
A WALKTHROUGH CONSULTATION (starting at $129.00 for a condo apartment)
Ideal for home buyers on a budget, or for those purchasing a newer home in relatively good condition and just want an expert opinion on areas of concern. A walk through consultation provides the home buyer with an overview of the general condition of the home and it's major systems. The inspector is a valuable resource and is available to answer any questions about the property and to provide you a foundation on which to base your purchasing decision. The walk-through consultation alerts buyers of existing problems with major components, like the roof, furnace or air conditioner, which often tend to be the most costly and time consuming to repair. Buyers are encouraged to take notes as this is a verbal consultation only!
A COMPLETE HOME INSPECTION (starting at $219.00 for a condo apartment)
A Complete Home Inspection from Seacliff Inspections offers peace-of-mind to home buyers purchasing a home, or home sellers listing their home. Usually intended for resale homes, this inspection provides a thorough visual evaluation of the home's components and systems. We will examine the entire property from the roof to the basement (or crawlspace if there is one). Besides looking at the integrity and operation of the house systems and components, we look at SAFETY and HEALTH related issues as well. Both the attic and basement are checked for evidence of active and past leaks. If you are present at the inspection, you will receive an immediate verbal briefing on the condition of the home. We provide all clients with a detailed home inspection report, including digital photos, delivered electronically within 24 hours. A premium, hardcopy of the report can be provided upon request for an additional fee.
HOME SMART PLUS (add $45.00)
Many clients want more protection than the standard home inspection provides. This set of ten exclusive services from Seacliff Inspections is designed to enhance the standard home inspection and protect the home buyer even after you move in. These services go above and beyond the standards of a typical home inspection, and are more likely to uncover and protect you against issues that are not readily visible in the home at the time of the inspection. HomeSmart+ adds priority service, thermal imaging, a 90-day warranty, RecallChek, and a free revisit. Also, if you have any concerns about the indoor air quality of the home, an IAQ and/or Mold test is available at a reduce rate for up to one year following the date of inspection. A premium, hardcopy of the report can be provided upon request for an small additional fee. Click here for more details on HomeSmart+.
