What do we do?

Our Comprehensive Home Inspection

We look for the integrity of the 7 pillars of your home.  These are the grounds that surround it, the roof, the foundation, your electrical system, plumbing system, Heating system, and the Air Conditioning System

Don’t expect a perfect house; every inspection will reveal issues. Depending on the size of the home, the inspection typically takes between two and four hours.  You should choose an inspector that you and your agent trust; we always strive to make your choice Iron Homes Inspections. We will provide you a neutral, well-written report with color photos and about 20 to 30 pages of information. At the time of inspection, we will take the lead and run the show, but don’t be afraid to ask questions, in fact we encourage it. This is your opportunity to get an expert opinion on the biggest financial purchase of your life and to really understand how the house functions. Afterward, make sure you and your agent go through the entire report together and then decide how to proceed with your negotiations.  Also if you have questions after your inspection never hesitate to contact us, we are always here for you!

It is in a sellers best interest to have the home as ready as possible before it is listed for market.  Addressing all of the problems before a home is listed can be much cheaper than lowering the sale price or finding the problem late in the game.  It can cost the seller 2 or 3 dollars for every real dollar of repair if it is found with a time crunch looming over head.  Also a home with no or very minor issues will put buyers more at ease and will increase your pool of potential buyers.

Don’t assume that because a home has passed all local codes and ordinances, it must be in good shape.  Homes are still built by people and we all make mistakes.  Also the code inspector is only inspecting that phase such as electrical or plumbing and not how it may have effected a prior phase.  To have an inspection that looks at the total picture can be a great asset to your future happiness in the home.  Especially if that total picture is in multiple phases of the construction of your new home.  

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building (homes, offices, and schools) and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.  Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.

I was worried that I was buying a money pit.  I knew it was a fixer upper but you came in and helped me prioritize my projects and really opened up my eyes.  Now I still have a lot of work ahead of me but at least I know what I am in for.
