Frequently Asked Home Maintenance Inspection Questions

That depends on the size of the home, the age of the home, and how many things are being found a good rule of thumb is to allow at least three hours.

In general a home maintenance inspection is very similar to a home buyer’s inspection, however there are some differences. For example, the inspector will not inspect the appliances in the home, as the homeowner is aware of the current condition of them, such as burners not working on the stove, or a faulty ice maker in the refrigerator, however the inspector will inspect the installation of the appliances.

Yes, we encourage everyone involved to be present during a home inspection, or mold inspection. Not only will we be investigating the current condition of the home but will also be giving many tips on how to maintain the home.

We tend to book out between 5 and 10 days however we know time is a factor and the inspection needs to be done sooner than that. In those cases we do everything possible to fit your inspection in, as long as it doesn’t make it so the inspector will have to rush anyone’s inspection.

Generally it is a good practice to have your home inspected annually. The reason annually is recommended is that a professional home inspector is not only trained to identify existing problems in your home, but to also identify potential issues that can lead to problems in your home. Another reason would be that problems in a home can occur rather quickly and the sooner they are discovered, often times the cheaper they are to have repaired.

Most people understand that it’s important to have a professional inspection before they invest in a new home, but once they get the seal of approval, they often neglect to have their home inspected on a regular basis. Upkeep of a home is important and if problems aren’t caught early on, it can put a big dent in your wallet down the road.

Regularly inspecting heating and air conditioning systems, plumbing, the roof of your home, windows and doors, electrical appliances, and the foundation – among other things – will alert you to minor problems that if fixed promptly, can save you from having to replace expensive items because they’ve been neglected.

By having your home inspected yearly, you will be able to prioritize your annual maintenance and help prevent some of the costly mistakes many homeowners make by not performing general maintenance.

Whatever your home inspection needs, Trademark Inspection Services is a dependable, solid, and affordable choice.
