WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?

     A home inspection is a controlled analysis of the present
     physical condition of the visible and accessible components
     of a home. It is a visual inspection, which looks  deeper
     than the surface to provide insights for customers that they          would not otherwise easily obtain.
   
     Homebuyers now entering the marketplace view inspections
     as a way to gain valuable information about the biggest
     purchase of their lifetime. A home inspection, including
     customer conference and delivery of an on-site report, may
     take as little as two hours, but the impact of the report's
     contents may last for years.

     Home inspections are not intended to point out every small
     problem or defect in a home. Minor or cosmetic flaws, for
     example, should be apparent without the aid of a
     professional. The inspection should not be confused with
     an appraisal, a municipal code inspection, or a guarantee
     of any kind.

     An important aspect of home inspections is that they also
     highlight the positive features of a home. In fact, many of
     the home inspector's observations or recommendations
     help to dispel homebuyer anxieties, and provide useful
     home repair and maintenance suggestions. A qualified
     Home Inspector, through specific training and experience,
     understands not only how a home's systems and
     components should work, but also how they interact with
     each other, and how they stand the test of time.
