Buying Your Home

Buying a new home is a stressful time and not only having a home inspection performed, but understanding the report and learning about your new home will ease a lot of your stress. At Morgan Home Inspection LLC, we perform a thorough visual inspection from foundation to roof top.

A home cannot fail a home inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and recommend their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take around two to three hours. We encourage you to be present during the inspection, so that you will have visual reference of the findings in your written report. It is not necessary for you to enter the crawl space or attic with your inspector, but being present on site will allow us to show you through digital photos the issues found and their exact locations. If you are unavailable for the inspection, a review of your report or any questions you may have can be handled over the telephone.

Every home inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the Structural and System Components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any problem areas noted, with digital photos so you can easily identify them. Here is What To Expect when you hire Morgan Home Inspection LLC.
