Our experienced inspectors will guide you through the process, answering questions and allowing you to observe them at work. Instead of merely pointing out deficiencies, a Hearthstone inspector is trained to assess the structure, functionality, and safety of the home. After the inspection, you will receive a written report that details how to maintain your home, any issues you may experience in the future, and how to address them. Your inspector will also remain as a resource for you should you have questions after purchasing your home.

Take time to look over our website to learn more about the services we offer and how we conduct inspections. Choosing a home inspector is an important decision, and we want you to feel confident that you are getting the best-value and highest-quality inspection on the market. Be sure the inspector you choose is licensed, insured, has a current membership in a professional organization, and allows you to observe the inspection. Here at Hearthstone, we welcome any questions or comparisons, confident that we measure up with the best.

How long will the inspection take and how much will it cost?

You can expect the inspection to take 2 to 4 hours, depending on the size of the home. This allows the inspector to look at every part of the home, including the roof, attic, and crawl space, if applicable.
In terms of cost, this again depends on the size of the property. For a condo, you would pay around $200 for an inspection. A larger, complex property inspection could cost up to $500. These prices are competitive with similar services in the area.

Why do I need an inspection if I’m selling a home?

While you don’t need an inspection, necessarily, you may find it helpful during the selling process. A pre-listing inspection can help you go into negotiations with a potential buyer armed with information about every part of the home. Also, it gives you a chance to address any problems with the home that could limit its value. Knowing of any potential issues will also help you avoid any “failure to disclose” allegations.

What are the most common problems that come up during a home inspection?

There are a number of issues we often see when inspecting homes, including faulty wiring, previous installation problems, roof issues like aging and improper installation, heating/cooling system issues, plumbing, insulation, drainage, and chimney problems. Many times, problems are related either to improper installation, lack of maintenance, or general structural issues. At Hearthstone, we can give you details about any issue we find as well as how to best go about addressing it.
