What To Expect from Your Inspection

​Once you have placed an offer on a property, a home inspection is extremely important to obtain before moving to the property’s closing. Superior Quality Home Inspections provides you with the information on the property needed in a clear, concise, easy-to-read web based report with pictures and videos documenting the properties overall condition.

A Home Inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed material defects within specific systems and components of the dwelling. The scope of work for such inspection may be modified by the client and inspector prior to the inspection process to exclude certain items normally inspected and/or to expand the inspection to include items not normally inspected. Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing or other essential systems or sections of the home as defined by New York States standard operating procedures for home inspectors.

A Material Defect is a specific issue with a system or component of a property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people. The fact that a system or component is near, at or beyond the end of its normal useful life is not, in itself, a material defect.

A Home Inspection will not reveal every defect that exists or could exist but those material defects observed on the date and time of the inspection.

A Home Inspection’s intent is to assist in the evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. A home inspection is based on a visual observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and its visible components on the date of the inspection. The inspection does not predict future conditions of the dwellings components.

A Home Inspection is not a warranty and does not guarantee that observed components of the dwelling are in a sound condition or will remain that way for any specified period of time in the future. Home inspections are visual in nature and we make no warranty whatsoever on this property.

An Inspection Report is a written report that identifies defects within specific systems and components that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. Inspection reports may include additional comments and recommendations. Such report may contain photos of observations made during the walk-through survey portion of the inspection and/or copies of documents reviewed during the research portion of the inspection.
