Typically, you should call as soon as your agreement has been signed. The Inspection Contingency section of your signed agreement will state the inspections that were agreed upon and the number of days you have to get the inspections completed and respond to the sellers.

To begin, we will ask you to provide us with the Address of property, Contingency period or Report Due Date and Agreement Approved Inspections. We will also ask for a few additional details about the property in order to give you an accurate quote for the inspections being ordered.

We will take care of everything pertaining to the inspections ordered through Efficient Home Inspections, LLC.

Our inspector, Mark, is as thorough as possible while being respectful of homeowner’s personal property. He will test accessible windows, doors, electrical outlets, lights, permanently installed appliances, etc. He runs water, flushes toilets and checks any visible plumbing, electric and where exhaust fan venting terminates. If a roof is safely accessible, he will be on it to perform a close-up inspection. These are a few examples of what a visual home inspection entails.

An inspector can only report on what can visibly be seen during the time of the inspection under the weather conditions of inspection time frame. We cannot report on what we cannot see, for example, plumbing or electrical that is hidden behind walls or under insulation, areas under carpets, behind furniture or stored items, shingle condition when covered with snow, etc.

Reports are generally emailed within 24 hours of your inspections; most times delivered the same day of the inspection.
