What to Expect From Your Inspection

If you are in need of a home inspection,  Three Sisters Home Inspection is here to help.

Whether you need a buyer’s inspection, a pre-listing inspection, or are interested in ensuring proper maintenance of your current home, you can trust me to deliver excellent inspection services.

I am focused on education, and my goal is to provide you with all of the information you need about the property, and its overall condition. I encourage clients and agents to walk through the home with me and to ask any questions throughout the inspection process.

Three Sisters Home Inspection has a thorough, multi-point checklist that ensures that no stone is left unturned, and I will explain the overall, general condition of the home and its systems to you and your agent after your inspection is complete.

In addition, I will compile a comprehensive report, delivered online via HTML, or in PDF format, documenting all of the  findings, and including images, references and further details. This report will be available for you both in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format, so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.
