What’s A Home Inspection

What’s A Home Inspection

When you hire Eagle One Home Inspections you are hiring a Professional Home Inspector.

When you hire a home inspector, you are hiring an experienced professional who has training and experience in home inspections.

It is the job of the home inspector to not only evaluate the condition of the house’s major systems and structural integrity, but also to evaluate how these systems are working together and identify areas that need to be watched, repaired or replaced.

Your home inspector will give you the “Big Picture” analysis of the house. If the home inspector identifies the need for a costly, detailed analysis of any of the home’s systems or structural components, the inspector will recommend the appropriate professional, which may be an experienced engineer or a qualified licensed contractor or specialty tradesman with expertise analyzing that particular system or structural component.
