A home inspection
is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections in the state of Washington. We prepare and deliver to the client a written report of findings within 24 hours of the inspection. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components. A home inspector determines the condition of a structure, whereas an appraiser determines the value of a property. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with appropriate codes building inspection
is a term often used for building code compliance inspections. Home inspections identify problems but building diagnostics
identifies solutions to the found problems and their predicted outcomes.
