While we offer estimates on how long an inspection will last, we will take as much time as necessary to ensure a complete inspection of your home is done.
A complete home inspection includes a thorough examination and a discussion with you at the end. We always tell our clients: if it’s in the report, we’ll discuss it before we leave.
As a general guideline, our inspections range from 2.5 – 3 hours for a house of less than 1,000 square feet to at least 5 hours for a house 4,500 square feet or more.
Keep in mind, various factors will affect the length of an inspection including weather, if the property is occupied during the inspection, or if we run into issues requiring further documentation.
Typically, our certified inspection experts spend 30 to 60 minutes on report preparation and another 1 to 3 hours finalizing the inspection and report before we email you and your real estate agent a copy. If your past home inspector finished everything in an hour or so and handed you a report, something was probably missed.
HOME INSPECTION CHECKLIST
A comprehensive home inspection is the only kind of inspection we do. Tri County Home Inspection views taking any shortcuts or skipping any portion of a house as a job done wrong. Our inspection checklist includes the entirety of a house, inside and out.
The outside portion is an examination of the house’s structure, roofing and full exterior – this includes the sidewalk, driveway, windows and doors. The inside of the home is also fully scrutinized. Plumbing, heating, electrical and insulation are just a few of the parts of our process.
Home Inspections with RecallChek, SewerGard and MoldSafe Protection
Every one of our complete home inspections also includes RecallChek, SewerGard and MoldSafe as free protection. It’s the little extras that make a big difference.
Tri County Home Inspection is committed to setting industry standards. Because of this, we include RecallChek with every inspection for free. RecallChek is a comprehensive report alerting you to any recalls on your in-home appliances. Without RecallChek, you’re missing out on free repairs to potential fire hazards right inside your home.
Here’s how it works. During our inspection, we record the model numbers of your home appliances and HVAC system, and then run them against the RecallChek database. Your RecallChek report is issued separately from Tri County’s report and is emailed directly to you. The best part is, RecallChek is valid for as long as you live in your home.
SewerGard is yet another free service included in our certified home inspections. SewerGard is a sewer and water protection plan designed to protect you from faulty water and sewer lines between your home and the street. Failures covered include line collapses, root intrusions and leaks.
Fixing water and sewer lines can be a costly endeavor. If you move in and shortly after your sewer or water lines have issues, you’re covered up to $4,000. Proper water lines are one of the most important features of a home. Make sure your home is fully inspected with Tri County Home Inspection’s SewerGard protection.
We also offer MoldSafe protection with our home mold inspections. If our inspector doesn’t find any visible mold or moisture issues and you discover mold soon after moving in, MoldSafe covers your mold remediation up to $2,000.
Not every home inspector checks for mold. With Tri County Home Inspection, we guarantee you won’t have mold or moisture issues in the living areas of your home.
90-DAY HOME WARRANTY AND 200% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
We’re not done yet. Our home inspections come with two further additions free of charge: a 90-day home warranty and an unbeatable 200% money back guarantee. We’re so confident in our ability to deliver unparalleled service, we’re willing to open our wallets in case you don’t agree.
90-DAY HOME INSPECTION WARRANTY
We offer a free 90-Day limited home warranty with every one of our home inspections. Our home warranty is valid either for 90 days from the date of the home inspection or 22 days after closing, whichever occurs later. This means you’ll have at minimum 22 days’ worth of coverage on your home.
Our 90-Day home warranty covers repairs to items our home inspector identified as in good working condition during the inspection and are specifically listed within the warranty coverage.
You’ll never have to pay a deductible, and claims are handled within 72 hours of completion. If your home already has a home warranty, no problem. Our warranty can work in conjunction with one already in place. Please note our warranty does have limitations. Take a look at our home warranty coverage to see what’s covered and what isn’t.
5-YEAR PLATINUM ROOF PROTECTION PLAN
The 5-year Platinum Roof Protection Plan is our newest free service included with every full inspection. Our plan covers the repair cost of leaks to your home’s roof up to 5 years following the date of inspection if your roof is found to be leak-free.
This covers residential roof types including:
Non-commercial flat roofs
