What happens after the Home Inspection?

After the Home Inspection, we will meet with you to discuss our findings and the basics of what will be included in the report and answer any questions you have at that time. The final evaluation and finalization will be done during the report writing process.  The detailed report with high resolution images will be completed the same day as the inspection and a link will be emailed to you.  Once you have looked over the report you are encouraged to contact us by phone or email with questions about the report.  Our job is not finished until you understand everything in the report!

Do I need to attend the Home Inspection?

It is encouraged that you attend the Home Inspection but is not required.  Showing up for the Inspection is great time to meet with the inspector and have any questions you have answered but, most of all, it is a great  time for you to get to know your new home. At Gem City Inspections, LLC we will do our best to work around your schedule so you can be there.  Remember, we are here for YOU!
