Email preferredinspections@cox.net or call 405-514-8583 now, for a home inspection in Edmond or anywhere in the Oklahoma City Metro Area. What really matters when buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This will include a detailed written report that includes photographs, other reports and information, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself, makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do? Relax. Most of your inspection findings will be maintenance recommendations and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories: 1. Major defects. An example of this would be a heating or air conditioner failure. 2. Things that lead to major defects. A small roof leak, for example. 3. Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home. 4. Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel. Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4). Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure or nit-picky items. My home inspections are thorough. Email preferredinspections@cox.net or call 405-514-8583 now to schedule yours. I am licensed through the state of Oklahoma, and must adhere to their standards of practice, and being a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, I also follow their Standards of Practice. This means I will attempt to inspect all of the following (when accessible): • Roof, vents, flashings, and trim, • Gutters and downspouts, • Skylight, chimney and other roof penetrations, • Decks, stoops, porches, walkways, and railings, • Eaves, soffit and fascia, • Grading and drainage, • Basement, foundation and crawlspace, • Water penetration and foundation movement, • Attic spaces, • Heating systems, • Cooling systems, • Installed appliances, • Main water shut off valves, • Water heating system, • Interior plumbing fixtures and faucets, • Drainage sump pumps with accessible floats, • Electrical service line and meter box, • Main disconnect and service amperage, • Electrical panels, breakers and fuses, • Grounding and bonding, • GFCIs and AFCIs, • Fireplace damper door and hearth, • Insulation and ventilation, • Garage doors, safety sensors, and openers, • And much more... My Promise to You Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you. If you need a home inspection performed, don’t settle for anything less than an experienced, certified, home inspector. I have over 20 years of commercial and residential construction experience, including over 15 years of commercial building with Fortune 500 companies. I have taken the college level inspection course required by the State of Oklahoma and passed the National Licensing Test. I am a Certified Professional Inspector. I attend a minimum of 10 hours of continuing education each year and have continuing education credits in: Electrical, Plumping, Roofing, Exterior, Structure, and HVAC Inspections, just to name a few.
