Licensed Home Inspector?

If you are looking to purchase a new home, a certified home inspector can help you to feel great about your decision. The certified inspector can ensure that the home you buy is of the best quality and that there are no surprises after the paperwork is signed.

Garage doors can present safety issues as well and can hurt or trap someone if they’re not operating properly. Your thornton home inspections will check garage doors for correct operation, weather tightness and overall condition and fit.

If required by your state, get the inspectors license number. Write down all the numbers and letters to make sure you will get the complete profile including whether of not he is an intern or apprentice.

Before you begin, keep in mind that the kind of home you purchased will also help determine the questions you want to ask your inspector when you call them.

This topic has some debate as to which certifying body is “better”, I could care less. It’s like saying your Real Estate Agent is better because they are from one large firm and not the other. The idea here is that an inspector has made a commitment to be a professional. If they are not a member of Nachi, ASHI or NAHI to name a few… I’d want to know why!

In almost every state you must have some form of continuing education to renew your license. Ask what kind of continuing education courses they have taken. Look into your states requirements and see if the inspector is only doing what has to be done or if he is going above and beyond the minimum requirements to make sure that they are well trained and knowledgeable about the current home inspection industry.

Awnings are used above windows or doors to protect against the sun or weather, or they maybe for decoration. They may be made from metal, plastic or fabric on a frame made from metal or plastic. Some are fixed in place, while others can be moved or folded. Your inspector will check their condition and whether awnings are attached properly. Do foldable awnings work as they should?

By asking these questions before hiring an inspector, a home buyer would have an easier time choosing which inspector is the right man or woman for the job.
