Royersford Home Inspectors aren't all the Same
Most of my home inspections in Royersford & surrounding come from referrals. This is a good thing because that means the client was happy enough with me as a home inspector that they would pass my name off to friends, family and co-workers. It's the greatest honor I can receive as a professional!
Every now and then, I get a prospective client that finds my website or locates my company in the yellow pages along with some other home inspectors in the Royersford area. The first question out of their mouth is, "How much does it cost for a Home Inspection?"
This tells me they look at all home inspectors as essentially the same except for cost, but there are so many other factors to consider such as:
1) Is the Home Inspector compliant with the State of PA? Ask this question before going further. Pennsylvania has requirements of all home inspectors and this is to protect the consumer.
1) What is the Home Inspector's background? Technically, anyone can decide to become a home inspector, so check the education and background. One guy might have a Bachelor's in English while another inspector earned a Master's Degree in Engineering. Maybe one inspector took an on-line home inspection course while another has an extensive background in home construction.
2) Find out about the Home Inspection Report. Do you get the report the same day as the inspection? What does it included? Is it easy to read? Does the report have digital pictures? Ask to see a Sample of a Home Inspection Report!
3) Does the home inspector climb roofs? Crawl the crawl spaces? Some don't.
4) What is the home inspector's availability? Is he available evenings or weekends? Can you call at 8pm and catch a live person when you have an important question?
These questions and more are important to consider when deciding on a home inspector in Royersford or wherever you're from! Royersford Home Inspectors aren't all the same!
