If you are a homeowner or buyer, you must have heard about Maui home inspection services. But what is a home inspection, and what is included in the inspection?
Do you have to get a home inspection, and can your house fail an inspection? These are only some of the frequently asked questions that we get at Mana Home Inspections.
We took the time to answer some of your FAQs in this article, but if you have any other questions or concerns, you are welcome to give us a call.
What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of your house or a physical structure found on your property.
It usually takes two to four hours to complete a home inspection. But it will depend on the house’s size and condition.
What Is Included In A Standard Home Inspection?
A standard home inspection will cover the roof, attic, basement, cooling and heating systems, fireplace, plumbing, and electrical components of the house.
Remember that it is a visual inspection, and obstructive objects can’t be inspected. And there are components in the house that do not form part of a standard inspection, such as the pool.
Why Do Home Owners Need An Inspection?
By getting your home inspected, you will have to make a small investment that could turn out to be one of the biggest investments that you could make.
Home inspections can reveal hidden problems in your house that could save you money in the long run.
Do Home Owners Or Prospective Buyers Need To Be At The Inspection?
It is not required for homeowners to be present at a home inspection. But homeowners or prospective buyers can join inspections, which could allow them to ask questions to the inspector.
Can A House Fail An Inspection?
In simple terms, a home inspector can’t fail a home. There isn’t a fail or pass rate that is given to a home inspection.
The inspector’s job is to describe the physical condition of the house and not appraise its value.
What If The Report Indicates Problems With The House?
Let’s start by saying that no house is perfect, so there will be problems that are pointed out during a home inspection, but this is not the end of the word. It is the role of the inspector to point out these problems to you so that you can resolve the issue.
Mana Home Inspections have been in the industry for years, and we can point you to the relevant people that can assist you.
Can There Be Problems On The Inspection Report?
Like no house is perfect, there might be a situation where the report produced by the inspector is not perfect. Or you, as the homeowner, might feel that the inspector missed some details during the inspections.
At Mana Home Inspections, we try to avoid these situations by thoroughly discussing the report and findings with our clients after the inspection. This allows you the opportunity to discuss any problems with us in person.
There are various services included in a Maui home inspection. By getting a professional home inspector, you can end up saving a lot of money in the end.
