What's Included in a
Having your home inspected by a certified professional home inspector is your first step to insuring nothing gets missed. During a home inspection a certified inspector works off of set standards of practice and often exceeds these standards. Major components of the home such as the roof, foundation, electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems among many other systems that make up a home will be inspected! Your North Pro Inspector will even go into crawlspaces and attics to make certain every visible portion of the home has been inspected.

You will receive an unbiased report outlining defects found during the inspection; many of which are repairable and do not pose a major risk to your purchase. The decision is ultimately left in the hands of the client.
Im buying a new home do I still need an inspection?
Absolutely! All to often the excitement of buying a new home can be overwhelming and things can be missed. Often times new construction homes come with a warranty typically 12-24 months, after this time latent defects left by the builder can be tough or impossible to get fixed by the builder without charge. Avoiding costly repairs on a brand new home is exactly why you should hire a certified professional inspector.
