3 WAYS TO DECIDE IF YOUR HOME NEEDS ROOF VENTILATION
Your roof needs regular care and maintenance, just like all the other parts of your home. To avoid clumping insulation, rotting wood, and molds, you need to inspect your roof periodically and ensure that it is properly ventilated. Moreover, if your roof has asphalt shingles, then you need attic insulation to validate the shingles’ warranty. Venting designs that are passive usually include both soffit and roof vents that pro...
My Promise to You
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you honor me by perm...itting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.

What Really Matters👍🏻
Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overw...helming. What should you do?
Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.
Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure or nit-picky items.
When you want to buy a new TV or smartphone, you may look through flyers, research various options, and ask for recommendations to make sure you get the best value for your money. So why wouldn’t you do that with a home? To avoid any unpleasant surprises, getting a home inspection before you sign on that dotted line is a surefire way to discover certain issues so that your dream house doesn’t turn into a nightmare.
