Home Inspection Services and Pricing
You need a quality home inspection. When you hire a New Jersey home inspector, you want to hire a licensed professional who has training and experience in the building industry. It is the job of the home inspector to not only evaluate the condition of the house's major systems and structural integrity, but also to evaluate how these systems are working together and identify areas that need to be watched, repaired or replaced.
Your home inspector gives you the Big Picture analysis of the house you are purchasing. If the home inspector identifies the need for a costly, detailed analysis of any of the houses' systems or structures, the inspector will recommend the appropriate professional, which may be an experienced engineer with expertise analyzing that particular system or structure. The need for this kind of expensive, detailed analysis is rare.
Hiring a Professional Engineer on your own can be a disappointing experience. The term Professional Engineer does not mean that the individual has training or experience conducting home inspections. Additionally, a home inspection does not involve engineering analysis. Therefore, hiring a Professional Engineer to complete a home inspection undoubtedly costs more, but likely will not give you the results you desire and deserve.
Home Inspection Elements
The home inspection is a visual inspection of the structural elements and equipment systems and components which are accessible, at the time of inspection. This typically includes:
Property Grading, Driveways, Walkways
|Foundations, Exterior Walls and Trim, Roof and Components|
|Patios, Porches, Decks|
|Attic, Interior Finishes, Doors and Windows, Fireplaces|
|Plumbing Components and Systems|
|Electrical Components and Systems, Wiring|
|Heating and Central Air Conditioning|
We strongly encourage you to accompany the inspector so that you may ask questions and gain a better understanding of the components and systems in the home.
If you have any questions, or are interested in any other services, please contact us so we may discuss your needs.
~Pricing for Home Inspection Services:
- The age of the house plays an important part in the inspection and report writing process. Please keep in mind, the on-site inspection is only part of the home inspection process. HBC Inspections typically spends an additional 3 to 5 hours in the office composing and proofing the written report. This time allows for the level of accuracy that we insist on. On-site generated reports do not allow the inspector to further investigate subject material if needed!
