About Your Inspection
What to expect from your inspection.
Before Your Inspection
During Your Inspection
Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, A Step Above Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. Our certified home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.
After Your Inspection
After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
Finally, we are always available for any questions you may have or to simply go over the report together to ensure your complete understanding of the issues noted.
