Home inspection service phoenix

Q: How should I choose a Home Inspector?
A: Call and ask about their credentials and experience. How many inspections have they performed; over 1,000, 5,000, 10,000? As the customer, it is important that you are comfortable knowing the inspector is qualified, experienced and attentive to your needs.

Q: What qualifications or credentials should a home inspector offer?
A: When choosing a home inspector, begin with a list those who are members of ASHI, the only professional home inspector association in America. Next, check to see who among them is both experienced and possesses an outstanding reputation for thoroughness and dependability. All inspectors are “certified” through the Arizona Board of Technical Registration. You may check an inspector’s license for complaints and validity by visiting www.btr.az.us.

Q: What will the inspection cover?
A: A thorough Inspection covers everything from roof to foundation as dictated by the AZ State Standards of Professional Practice.

Q: How long will the Inspection take?
A: Most Inspections take about three to four hours. These times may vary depending on the size, age and condition of the home.

Q: Should I be present during the Inspection?
A: We recommend that you be present at the site of the inspection or at a minimum, the last hour from start to finish. By attending your inspection, you will learn as much as possible from your inspector and walk the home to view the inspector’s concerns.

Q: Why use our Services?
A: The purchase of a home is one of the single most costly investments that a family will make. Relocation and the stress of moving affect each family member. A thorough inspection performed by a highly competent professional will help in deciding whether your home selection will “stand the test of time”. It is important that you know what you are getting for your money. A professional home inspection is an opportunity to determine the condition of the home and identify any immediate necessary cost of repairs that could otherwise go unnoticed. Home inspections are not a prediction of future performance, but can pinpoint existing problem areas.

With that in mind, Inspection Specialist has been doing business for over 27 years. Our customers, (homeowners and realtors), call us back again and again for inspection services when they move into a new home. They refer us to family and friends because they trust the quality and integrity of our services. Our written service warranty is our promise that you will receive nothing but extraordinary, first-class professional service on every inspection.

Q: Can I have someone in my family who is handy, does home repairs or is a contractor do an inspection?
A: This is a mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be capable, he or she is not trained in conducting a professional home inspection. Professional home inspection is a unique skill requiring specific and detailed training. Over time, experienced inspectors get what we call an "instinct for problems". That instinct develops through extensive training and years of experience doing inspections. When purchasing a home, many contractors and trades professionals hire a professional home inspector to inspect their homes.

Q: What if I have questions after the inspection?
A: Call us on our 24-hour hotline number. Whenever you have a question or problem with your home you may contact us via telephone, fax, email or mail these consultations are free for as long as you own your home!
