Why hire a home inspector? In the home buying world, the dream house you find will give you tunnel vision. That is correct, as a buyer you will be the expert for the beauty that is only skin deep. You will fall in love with features of a home that were carefully engineered to be that shiny object that will be the smoke screen for potential deeper lying issues. This is common and for that reason alone you will want a home inspector to provide you with a detailed report for the functional and safety part of a home. A typical inspection can uncover hidden issues that can become costly if they go undetected. Those costly items become a bargaining tool to drive the negotiations for finalizing the deal. The small fee paid to the inspector to uncover the hidden issues could save you thousands in repairs and give you piece of mind. At Guardian Home Inspection we will reinspect at no additional cost any repairs made for identified problems that have been corrected.
