What to Expect From Your Inspection

We know that the process of buying or selling a house can be stressful. When searching for the right home inspector, it’s important to find someone you can trust and that’s why we are here for you.  The inspectors at Innovative Home Inspections, Inc. are licensed by the State of Maryland, Certified by ASHI, and insured.

A home inspection is a thorough visual examination of a house or property. The purpose is to discover and assess any problems with the structure itself as well as its systems. This includes looking for signs of water damage, mold growth, structural defects, termite activity, fire hazards, etc.

Once our team has completed their evaluation, we provide you with a detailed written report detailing any major findings as well as recommended solutions. The report will contain information about any repairs needed, as well as other important details. It will also list items like appliances, plumbing fixtures, heating systems, electrical wiring, roofing materials, insulation, windows, doors, foundation walls, floors, ceilings, decks, garages, sheds, fences, landscaping, etc., to help you understand the overall condition of the home.
