Mountain Valley Inspections, LLC

Inspection Overview
 

A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than five hours, usually between two and a half and four hours. Ideally, you will meet with your inspector on site after the inspection, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report. However our reports contain digital color photographs that provide clear reference to any issues.

We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. In addition to color photographs, the report includes a complete description of what we've found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them.

A thorough home inspection will include the following:

~ Roof (shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, trim and gutters, drip edges, skylights, downspouts, and other visible roof related items)

  ~ Attics (insulation, ventilation, rafters, joists and collar ties, trusses, wiring attachments, and other visible related items)
~ Plumbing and Fixtures (water distribution system, hose bibs, sinks and faucets, bath/showers and toilets, sanitary system, and other plumbing system components)



~ Interior (floors and ceilings, walls, stairs (if applicable) and banisters, finishes, sinks, cabinets, shelving, built-in appliances, smoke detectors and safety-related items, and other visible interior-related components)

~ Heating and Cooling Systems (furnace, air cleaning parts, ductwork, propane and wood stoves, air conditioner and lines, and other visible related HVAC components)
