What is the main issue that you see in a home?

The main issue always starts with water. Water is the number one enemy of a home. 95% of issues in homes are rooted back to water being the main culprit. Water intrusion can happen in a variety of ways such as lack of or improper flashing or caulking issues. It is best if these issues are taken care of before they turn into larger issues.


How do you detect water issues in the home?

Aside from observing the obvious leaks or damage sources, an inspector should use a moisture meter to detect any non-obvious surfaces that may have water damage or water exposure. Hestand Home Inspection uses The Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus Moisture Meter. This meter is an invaluable tool for a home inspector. Water is the number one enemy of a home.  The problem is that it cannot be seen with the naked eye all of the time. The Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus Moisture Meter allows us to find moisture that cannot be seen in a variety of materials ranging from wood, drywall, plaster, and more.


Is any home ever “perfect”?

In the hundreds of inspections that we have done, we have never encountered a “perfect” home. There are always deficiencies but the severity of them will vary. The most important thing is that the inspector does not miss the small issues that could potentially turn into larger issues.


What is the average cost of a home inspection?

Home inspections usually start at $350 for the average “starter” home. The price will vary depending on the location, the year the home was built, and the square footage of the home. There are other items that can be added to the inspection such as pool inspections or sprinkler system inspections that will affect the pricing as well.
