"The last place you would want to cut costs to save money in your home buying process is on a home inspection. Inspection levels vary from inspector to inspector. You usually get what you pay for. Also, more often than not, fees are recouped by seller remediations. Even if you are lucky to find a gem and not much is wrong, you will gain valuable information from my report on how to operate your home and keep up with things using preventative maintenance."
Calvin has decided to "retire from the rat race" of doing JUST the BUYER TYPE whole house inspections. He still does everything else listed, except for radon and lead paint.
I can promise you that my home inspections are not a “joke.” They are professional and thorough. I put on my “inspectors face” and get going. At 60 years old, 6’1” and 200 lbs, I can still fit through one cement block. So more than likely I can inspect your crawlspace!! Maybe someday I will gain 50 lbs then I won’t have to do them! HA! Just kidding!! There hasn’t been a roof yet that I couldn’t get up on due to steepness or snow, that I couldn’t do at least a partial roof inspection. I test for carbon monoxide and all accessible gas fittings, (time permitting), for FREE, although these are not a requirement. I will inspect stoves, dishwashers, cooktops, dryers, microwaves, and ovens for functionality-not performance-if time allows-for FREE. (Appliance inspections are not a required part of an Indiana State Licensed home inspection or an ASHI inspection-nor is carbon monoxide testing or using gas leak detectors for that matter either.)
When it’s all said and done, I will have done what is said in my report!! Reports are ready 80% of the time late at the end of the 2nd day after the inspection. Happy House Hunting!!! Calvin
