Q: What is a house inspection? 

A: An inspection is an objective visual examination of the structure and systems of a building. Having a house inspected from the foundations to the rooftop is like giving it a check-up. If any problems are found, the home inspector will suggest the right solutions and fix them on time.

Q: What does a property inspection service include?

A: A standard house inspection report will review the condition of the major systems in the building, including electrical, HVAC, plumbing, roofing, basement, insulation, walls, attic, floors, appliances, doors & windows, and more.

Q: Why should one have a home professionally inspected?

A: If you own a property, an inspection service may be used to help you identify problems in the making and to learn preventative maintenance measures which might avoid costly future repair work. If you are planning to sell the house, you may wish to have an inspection to properly evaluate its price.

Q: Does a standard service offer a radon test?

A: To get your home checked for radon you have to make sure you are working with a home inspector certified by the EPA. If you are interested in using this particular service, contact Platinum Property Inspections, and I will be more than happy to suggest the right solution for you.

Q: How long does an inspection service take? 

A: A professional inspection usually takes between two to three hours for standard size buildings. However, for older buildings or homes with additions, the specialist may take longer to perform his job.

Q: How much will a building inspection service cost me?

A: The cost of such a service varies with the size, age, and the number of systems the building has. To get a personalized quote, you can call me for an in-home consultation in Prescott, AZ. I will be more than happy to come and give you an individualized solution.

Q: Should the homeowner be present for the building inspection?

A: In most cases, this is not necessary, but I strongly recommend all my clients observe what I do and ask questions if they have any. This way, I can educate them about the condition of their home, how the systems work, and how to maintain them. They will also find my written reports easier to understand.

Q: What if the report reveals issues?

A: No building is perfect, and if I identify any problems, this does not necessarily mean you should buy a new home. I will help you pinpoint the weaknesses and give you the most optimal repair solutions.

Q: Can I inspect my house myself? 

A: Even the most experienced property owners lack the expertise of a professional inspector who has the certificates and know-how. An expert is familiar with the many elements of buildings, their proper installation, and maintenance.

Buying a home is a big investment, let us provide you with a peace of mind!

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
