A home inspection is an objective assessment of the visible condition of the property by an unbiased, trained professional.  It is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall condition of a home and is not a pass/fail proposition.  During a home inspection, the inspector will visually inspect virtually every space and operational system in the home.  The result is a comprehensive report that details any visible conditions and defects that affect the home. 

The average time for a home inspection is about three hours; however, there are many variables to consider.  A small house, where many issues are discovered and reported on, can take longer than a larger house with few issues.  Because each accessible room/space is reported on, the more complex the property is, the longer the inspection will take.  At Profile Inspections, LLC, we’ll take the time to insure the home is thoroughly inspected and to explain our findings to the client as well as answering any questions they may have. 

Profile Inspections, LLC performs all home inspections in accordance with The NAHI (National Association of Home Inspectors) Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.  NAHI Home Inspectors follow strict reporting guidelines and provide detailed written disclosure of all visible defects and conditions found. 

Reports are generally emailed to you, the buyer and your agent (with your authorization) within twenty-four hours after the physical inspection is completed.  We welcome clients to contact us if they have any questions or require clarification on any issue raised in the report. 

The home inspection report is designed as a tool to help the client manage the risks involved with purchasing a home.  It is broken down into sections, corresponding to the different components of the home.  Each component is further broken down to cover all the items within it.

Report

Although everything present in the property is reported on, there are limitations as to what is inspected. 

Larry prepares to inspect the attic and the underside of a roof in a home near Collegeville, PA.

• The inspection is visual and non-intrusive. 
- furniture such as a sofa or a bookcase will not be moved to test the electrical outlet behind them. 

• The inspection will not include areas that can not be safely accessed. 
- weather conditions, roofing materials, or the slope may prevent the inspector from walking on the roof. 
- crawlspaces with limited height and attics that cannot be safely traversed will not be entered. 

For varying reasons, there are additional items that are not tested, from alarm systems and smoke detectors, to low-voltage garden lighting and irrigation systems.  If you have questions regarding what is inspected and what is not, please contact us.

For additional inspections such as WDI (wood destroying insects often referred to as termite), radon, water quality, lead, mold and air quality, we are affiliated with other companies that provide these inspections exclusively at competitive prices.  So for your convenience, we can schedule all the inspection services you may need.
