FAQ

We know buying or selling a home can be a stressful endeaver. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it. If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence. A home inspection can identify problems in the making, and suggest preventive measures that might help you avoid costly future repairs.

 

When do I call Spectro Home Inspections? 
A home inspector is usually contacted immediately after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. Before you sign, be sure there is an inspection clause in the sales contract, making your final purchase obligation contingent on the findings of a professional home inspection. This clause specifies the terms and conditions to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.

Do I have to be there?
While it’s not required that you be present for the inspection, it is highly recommended. You will be able to observe the inspector and ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home and how to maintain it.

What if the report reveals problems? 
If the inspector identifies problems, it doesn’t mean you should or shouldn’t buy the house, only that you will know in advance what to expect. If your budget is tight, or if you don’t want to become involved in future repair work, this information will be important to you.

What will a Spectro Home Inspection cost? 
The inspection fee for a typical one-family home varies geographically. Similarly, within a given area, the inspection fee may vary depending on a number of factors such as the size of the house, its age and type of constuction. (Pricing)

What you should I expect from a pest inspection?
The inspection is conducted to find evidence of wood-destroying organisms that falls into one of three categories: (1) infestation, (2) damage, and (3) conditions conducive to infestation.

What happens if wood destroying insects are discovered and or damage to the structure is observed? 
When on-going or extensive damage to a property is present, it is best to have a licensed pest control professional create an action plan for treatment. A structural carpenter may be needed for proper repairs.
