A home may be your castle, but it’s probably not perfect, regardless
of its cost. There will always be some minor issues to attend to.
This is to be expected as part of reality. At Cave to Castle Home Inspection
we address the minor issues while putting our major focus on the larger ones,
which could be dangerous or costly to repair.
Areas that we inspect include (but not limited to):
STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS - foundation, walls, floors, roof structure
The investment in a home inspection is very small when compared to the cost of a home. You get peace of mind and an education for your wise decision.
EXTERIOR – wall finishes, flashing, trim, doors, windows, decks, steps,
railing, eaves, soffits, fascia, vegetation, drainage, driveways, walkways,
garage door and safety controls
ROOFING – type, drainage system, flashings, skylights, chimneys
PLUMBING SYSTEM – supply pipes, fixtures, faucets, leaks, cross connections,
drain waste and vent piping, proper drainage, water heater, safety controls, venting, flues
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM – service entrance conductors, grounding, entrance
panel, overcurrent devices, amperage, branch circuits, operation of
outlets, switches, installed fixtures, polarity, GFCI`s and AFCI`s
HEATING and COOLING SYSTEMS – type, safety controls, operating
controls, energy source, venting, registers, fans, pumps, ducts, filters
INTERIOR – walls, ceilings, floors, stairways, counters, cabinetry, doors,
VENTILATION and INSULATION – type and amount, attic, kitchen, bath and
laundry venting systems
Inspections are usually scheduled within 48 hours of notification. We realize and respect people’s lifestyles; that’s why we are flexible and available 6 days a week, Monday thru Saturday. If the only possibility is Sunday, accommodations will be made. On the day of the home inspection, it is absolutely necessary that all utilities (water, gas, electric) be turned on so we can fully check the functionality of these systems.
Our fee schedule varies, just like the homes we inspect, so please contact us and we will give you an accurate quote for the property in question. You will provide square footage and any unique characteristics of the property. We do not base our fee on features like the age of the property, number of windows, fireplaces, skylights, etc., etc., as others do. There are no additional fees for pool/spa inspections and every home inspection includes a free mold inspection.
We are neither the cheapest nor the fastest. If this is what you`re looking for, please choose another company (there are many). Now is not the time to cut corners. Saving $50--$100 now could end up costing you thousands in repairs that weren't discovered before the deal was closed. We make every effort possible to do a thorough job and leave you with the feeling that you've gotten more than your money’s worth. You not only get an inspection, you get an education as to how systems function in the home.
Your satisfaction is what keeps us in business because a satisfied client will refer us to others.
