What is a Home Inspection?
Our Maryland home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, performed for a fee. It is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by our Standards of Practice that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. It is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and is not a prediction of future conditions. It will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.
In simpler terms, the home inspection is an evaluation of the visible and accessible components of the home, both interior and exterior. We will observe and report the issues and problems we see during that specific date and time of the inspection and we will help you determine the severity of each, whether they are minor, major, or eminent safety hazards.
We will also explain how to maintain the various components and systems of your home. We will locate and show you the various shut-off protections in the home such as plumbing, fuel, electric, etc. You will receive a color inspection report detailing the material defects that are observed, pictures of defects, and recommendations regarding repairs, replacement, and/or monitoring or further professional specialist evaluation if necessary. We want you to understand everything in your report – we are here to answer your questions even after we deliver it!
