Purchasing a new home will probably be the
largest single investment you'll ever make. A home purchase, whether it is a new or existing home, is an exciting event
but it can also be a very stressful experience. It is a time when many decisions about the new home and location must be made
in a short period of time. And although you hope the home you've selected is perfect, there may be serious defects or
deficiencies that can make your investment even more costly. I’m Chuck McCauley, P.E., and I realize the concerns and
pressure you’re dealing with. No one wants surprises when making a large investment and my job is to help make sure
there are none.
A thorough property inspection is vital for your protection and peace of mind as a prospective
homeowner. You need a professional, competent inspector to provide assurance that the representation made of your new home
actually exists. The approach at Engineered Inspection Services LLC (EIS) is to involve the buyer in the
inspection as much as possible. You are welcome to accompany the inspector and become part of the inspection process gaining
knowledge while strengthening your decision-making ability.
A typical home inspection takes approximately 1-1/2
to 3 hours depending on the size, condition, and age of the property. All inspections by EIS are performed
in accordance with the Standards of Practice of NACHI, The National Association of Certified Home Inspectors. The cost for
a home inspection is based on the square footage of the living area and is listed on the Fee Schedule page.
An EIS inspection will educate the homebuyer and allow sufficient
time for you to review and clarify all issues relevant to the inspection report. Inspection reports are thorough and comprehensive
narrative reports (not just a simple checklist) detailing all systems and issues. Reports are delivered via email usually
on the same day as the inspection. Digital photos are used throughout the report as a reference for the prospective homeowner.
This is especially important for potential homebuyers that reside out-of-state or otherwise cannot attend the inspection.
Our services are available long after the inspection is over for as long as you own the home. Once you have settled
in your home, you can feel free to call me at anytime following the inspection with any questions that come up about the operation
and maintenance of the home.
