Residential Home Inspection

What We Inspect

A Home Inspection in Oklahoma City is a non-invasive visual examination of a residential dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed material defects within specific components of said dwelling.  Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, or other essential systems or portions of the home, as identified and agreed to by the Client and Inspector, prior to the inspection process.     

      A home inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. Your home inspection is based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the structure and its components on the date of the inspection and not the prediction of future conditions.     

      A home inspection will not reveal every concern that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection. A material defect is a condition with a residential real property or any portion of it that would have a significant adverse impact on the value of the real property or that involves an unreasonable risk to people on the property. The fact that a structural element, system or subsystem is near, at or beyond the end of the normal useful life of such a structural element, system or subsystem is not by itself a material defect.     

      An Inspection report shall describe and identify in written format the inspected systems, structures, and components of the dwelling and shall identify material defects observed. Inspection reports may contain recommendations by our home inspector regarding conditions reported or recommendations for correction, monitoring or further evaluation by professionals, but this is not required.
