Home Inspections, Home Inspector

A home inspection is a time limited, non – technically exhaustive visual evaluation of the readily accessible areas and major components of the home for the sole purpose of identifying major deficiencies.

However at All In One Home Inspections it means much more than that.

Buying a home is a major decision.

Some other considerations for homebuyers aside from the price and the neighborhood are:

1 - Do we like the floor plan?
2 - Is the style right for us?
3 - Is the size of the home suitable?
4 - Is the house structurally sound?
5 - Will additional money be required for repairs?
6 - Will these repair costs be major?

At All In One Home Inspections we want to assist you in making an informed choice. Although a home inspection does not eliminate the risk of buying a home, Steve’s extensive construction background and experience as a general contractor will greatly reduce the chances of a future problem.
