 Ten Important Questions to Ask Your Home Inspector

1. What does your inspection cover?

A home inspection from JCM Building Services is performed in accordance to the Standards Of Practice and Code OF Ethics created by the Inter National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI). The Standards Of Practice can be found viewed by clicking the Standards Of Practice tab at the top of the page.

2. How long have you been practicing in the home inspection profession and how many inspections have you completed?

I have been involved in many facets of Real Estate, Construction, and Home Remodeling over the past 31 years. I have been an active Home Inspector since 2008. I have performed hundreds of paid inspections.

3. Are you specifically experienced in residential inspection?

I am a Certified General Contractor and Licensed Home Inspector. I have over 30 years experience in Real Estate Investment, Residential Construction, Home Remodeling, and Home Inspections.

4. Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?

No, absolutely not. Involvement in repairs is absolutely forbidden by the NACHI Code of Ethics.

5. How long will the inspection take?

On average, a Home Inspection by JCM Building Service should take 2-3 hours to complete the onsite portion of the inspection. The written report usually takes an additional 1-2 hour to prepare. The report is then emailed to you following the inspection.

6. How much will it cost?

The price of your Home Inspection will vary on the size of your home and the type of inspections required. Please call me for a price quote.

If your shopping for prices, I offer this advice. Don’t hire your inspector based upon price alone. Hire your inspector based upon how they communicate with you. Are they patient and informative, or, condescending and demeaning? A Home Inspection is a learning event and your inspectors ability to communicate with you is more important than saving a couple of dollars.

In addition to being a Licensed Home Inspector, I’m also a Licensed General Contractor. Most of my competitors are only licensed Home Inspectors and lack the level of experience or education in construction and building science to qualify for a contractor’s license.

7. What type of inspection report do you provide and how long will it take to receive the report?

A Home Inspection report from JCM Building Services is an electronic document filled with pictures and recommendations. The inspection report is delivered to you via email in a PDF format within 24 hours. It can be easily printed and used as a paper document

8. Will I be able to attend the inspection?

Yes, It is better if you attend. You can ask questions and get more out of the inspection by attending.

9. Do you maintain membership in a professional home inspector association?

Yes, I am a proud member of the Inter National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI).

10. Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date?

Yes, I am required to complete continuing education hours to maintain my membership in NACHI, and maintain my General Contractors and Home Inspectors licenses.
