Frequently Asked Questions
When can I get an inspection done?
We conduct an average of two inspections per day, Monday through Friday. Other arrangements can be made to accommodate the specific scheduling requirements of our clients including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays if needed. Give us a call to schedule an inspection.
Can I be present?
Absolutely! In fact, it is highly recommended that you do, to get a full understanding of the property. My favorite aspect of the work is the educational one. Clients and Realtors are encouraged to attend the walkthrough presentation at the completion of the inspection, which generally takes about an hour. The inspection process takes a minimum of 3 hours to complete and most visitors get bored waiting for us to finish. The kids get REALLY restless as well.
How much does a home inspection cost?
The cost of a home inspection varies, based on the square footage of the building, and building components as well as any additional services you request. For a price quote please call or e-mail.
Who gets a copy of the report?
Most of our inspections are conducted for the buyer of the property. Our policy is to provide a PDF file of the report, or hard copy upon request, to the buyer and their Realtor unless otherwise instructed by the paying client.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Either the client or their Realtor must sign a pre-inspection agreement before the inspection is conducted. This contract is based on established standards recognized throughout the industry. You can view the pre-inspection agreement here.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes. I am a licensed Home Inspector in the State of Montana. I am a member of the The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and I carry Errors and Omission and Liability Insurance.
