Every day I speak to new and old homebuyers who are clueless about what a home inspection is. People are usually taken by surprise when I give them the rundown on all the items we inspect. Our goal is to make the home inspection a painless process for all parties involved. To help, we will answer some of the most common questions that we get asked.

How Long Will The Inspection Take?

It is very important to understand that every inspection is different. Factors such as the square footage of the home, the type of foundation, and the age of the home all contribute to the length of a home inspection. Our home inspectors follow the same process for every home we inspect. On average this process takes between 2-4 hours.

Do You Inspect For Mold?

We do inspect for mold. Check out our Mold Resource Page for more answers to your mold questions.

Will This Be Expensive to Fix?

While our inspectors are not qualified contractors, The Brickkicker partners with Porch to give our clients the option to purchase a Repair Estimate Report. A Repair Estimate Report will provide a detailed price breakdown of all the items found during our inspection. For more information about Repair Estimate Reports, check out our resource page.

What Qualifications Do You Have

Unlike other inspection services, all our home inspectors are certified by The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). Our inspectors are also required to keep their skills and knowledge up to date by completing a certain number of continuous education classes throughout the course of the year.

Can I attend the inspection?

We encourage all our clients to attend. A home inspection is a personalized service that every potential homeowner should experience.

What kind of report will I get?

Our inspection report is a clear easy-to-read report that includes photos, video, and sound recordings if need be. They are delivered to your inbox the same day that your inspection is completed.

How do I schedule?
