Can I attend the home inspection while the inspector is inspecting the house? 2017-04-11T15:30:21+00:00

Yes you can; however, we recommend, for your safety, to show up at the end of the inspection. This allows us to focus strictly on the house without the concern for your safety. Some of the areas we inspect we do not take our clients with us. For example, we do not take our clients on the roof, in the attic, under the crawlspace, or in front of the electrical panel with the deadfront panel off. These are very dangerous situation and your well-being and safety is top priority for us. Which is why at the end of the inspection while we are walking the client through the house, if we identify an item, but its too dangerous to take the client there we will show the picture on our tablet. Plus, depending on the size of the house we are there between 3 to 6 hours inspecting the property while the walk through only takes an hour to review with the client.
