If you buy a car from a private owner, you’ll probably want to have it looked over by a mechanic first to be sure you’re getting what you think you are. Given that a house is a much bigger investment than a car, not having it inspected by one of our home inspectors that are licensed and insured by the National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) would be a huge mistake.

Basically, it is a top-to-bottom visual assessment of the accessible areas of the home to uncover any material defects in the structure of the home or its major systems. A home inspection takes about three to four hours, and at the end of it, we produce a detailed report about the home and any issues with it.

This type of inspection is a visual examination of the structure and systems of a home that is carried out by a certified, licensed and insured home inspector.
The subject of home inspection typically comes up whenever you are buying or selling a home. As a seller, you may want to find out anything that is wrong with the home before placing it on the market, so you’re not surprised by any issues later on in the selling process. If any problems are found that a potential buyer would probably want fixed, this gives you time to get them fixed beforehand. Since an inspection reveals much about the overall condition of the home, it will also be very helpful when it comes to determining your asking price.
When confronted with all the expenses that go along with selling a home, you may be tempted to try to cut corners and think you can inspect your own home. This would be a mistake. Professional home inspectors, such as our licensed, trained and insured staff at S.P.T. Home Inspections, are familiar with home construction, safety and maintenance as well as the proper installation of systems in a home. You don’t want to risk thinking you’ve uncovered and fixed all potential problems only to have the buyer’s inspector uncover more that you missed.
At S.P.T. Home Inspections, we are extremely competitive when it comes to our pricing. In fact, we even offer you a price-match guarantee. If you can show us an estimate from another licensed and certified home inspection company that is also insured in Pennsylvania for less than we charge, we will match their price. Generally speaking, the larger the square footage of a home the higher the price for an inspection, and the inspection of a townhome or single-family home will cost more than that for a condominium.
An inspection will generally take about two to three hours depending on the size of the home.
