A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. West Valley Structural inspections are always performed by a licensed/certified home inspector. Once the inspection is completed we prepare and deliver to the client a written report if findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.
A home inspector is sometimes confused with a real estate appraiser. A home inspector determines the condition of a structure, whereas an appraiser determines the value of a property. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with appropriate codes.
