We perform an objective visual examination of the physical structure and major systems from roof to foundation per ASHI “Standards of Practice” (based on accessibility to all areas and units of the property). Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive report of everything we can see and equip you with the information and knowledge so you can make an educated decision regarding the property condition. Full copies of our completed inspection reports are often available the following day via email, website link, or physical copy.
