Qualitas Home Inspections, LLC believes there are ten important questions you should have answered before you select your home inspector. If you have questions in addition to the 10 listed below, please type them in the comments section at the bottom of this page and we will address those as well. Make sure to include a return email address in the comments section in order that we can respond to you.
 

1. What does your inspection cover?

The inspector should ensure that their inspection and inspection report will meet all applicable requirements in your state if applicable and will comply with a well-recognized standard of practice and code of ethics. You should be able to request and see a copy of these items ahead of time and ask any questions you may have. If there are any areas you want to make sure are inspected, be sure to identify them upfront. Please review guidelines for InterNACHI and TN Standards of Practice
 

2. How long have you been practicing in the home inspection profession and how many inspections have you completed?

The inspector should be able to provide his or her history in the profession and perhaps even a few names as referrals. Qualitas Home Inspections has performed thousands of inspections and has had repeat customers and same agent referrals for over 10 years. Our reviews and referrals speak to our reputation in the industry.
 

3. Are you specifically experienced in residential inspection?

Related experience in construction or engineering is helpful, but is no substitute for training and experience in the unique discipline of a home inspection. We have many years of experience inspecting as well as in construction and have built our reputation on referrals. If the inspection is for a commercial property, then this experience should be asked about as well. We generally do not provide commercial inspections unless the property is a former residence.
 

4. Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?

Some inspector associations and state regulations allow the inspector to perform repair work on problems uncovered in the inspection. Other associations and regulations strictly forbid this as a conflict of interest. We do not offer repairs or estimates as this is a conflict of interest for us.
 

5. How long will the inspection take?

The average on-site inspection time for a single inspector is 2 to 3 1/2 hours depending on the condition and size of the property. Anything significantly less may not be enough time to perform a thorough inspection. Additional inspectors may be brought in for very large properties and buildings.
 

6. How much will it cost?

Costs vary dramatically and are based on the age, geographical location, and square footage of the property. We are not the least expensive nor most expensive home inspector; however, we offer a very reasonably priced inspection for the quality and expertise provided. The inspection fee is generally less than 1/1000 percent of the purchase price and we believe it to be a very valuable investment.
 

7. What type of inspection report do you provide and how long will it take to receive the report?

Ask to see samples and determine whether or not you can understand the inspector's reporting style and if the time parameters fulfill your needs. Our inspectors provide their full report within one business day of the inspection and Sample Pages
 

8. Will I be able to attend the inspection?

This is a valuable educational opportunity. An inspector's refusal to allow this should raise a red flag. Never pass up this opportunity to see your prospective home through the eyes of an expert. We highly recommend attending the inspectorís review toward the end of the inspection at a minimum.
 

9. Do you maintain membership in a professional home inspector association?

There are many state and national associations for home inspectors. Request to see their membership ID, and perform whatever due diligence you deem appropriate. Our inspectors are are licensed with the State of Tennessee and are certified professional inspectors through InterNACHI.
 

10. Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date?

One can never know it all, and the inspector's commitment to continuing education is a good measure of his or her professionalism and service to the consumer. This is especially important in cases where the home is much older or includes unique elements requiring additional or updated training. Both the State of TN and InterNACHI require 32 continuing education units every two years. An exam is also required every three years to maintain an active license.
