The Home and Property Inspection Process

What to Expect from a Home Inspection

If you have any further questions for us or you would like to schedule an appointment with us, be sure to contact us today!

  • Schedule a time for the inspection. We offer flexible scheduling, making this step that much easier.
  • Payment for the inspection is due on or before the date of the scheduled appointment.
  • Your inspector will arrive a few minutes early to your property. Your attendance is not necessary, although it is preferred to assist in complete education of the property.
  • Our inspection will take about one to two and a half hours, depending on the size of your property.
  • We methodically inspect the property in accordance with the InterNACHI Standards of Practice, with additions or exclusions as you have indicated in the Inspection Agreement.
  • Upon completion of the inspection, there will be time for a final walkthrough of the property and home to answer any additional questions.
  • At this time, an Inspection Agreement will be drawn up as a contract for your inspection. This will then need to be signed before the report is released.
  • Your inspector will compile the photos taken at the time of inspection, as well as the information gathered, into a complete inspection report.
  • Reports are electronic, and will be delivered via email as a PDF document by the end of the day.
  • Stratton Home Inspections is your go-to company far after the report is delivered. If at any time you have further questions, don’t hesitate to call!
