For us, The Final Inspection (TFI), the average inspection time for a single family house is 3 hours and may vary due to such factors such as size, condition and age. Consequently to ensure superior service and quality we do not schedule more than 2 inspections per day and remain onsite until the client's needs are met.
Our inspections are performed in accordance to; The Standards of practice for Home Inspections and The Code of Ethics for the Home Inspection Professional which can viewed at ashi.org. Systems and components included in the home inspection are; structure components, exterior, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, interiors, insulation & ventilation, fireplaces & fuel-burning appliances. A detailed explanation of each can be found using the link above.
TFI currently generates detailed digital reports within 24 hours using HomeGauge inspection software, a premier software package. Our reports include multiple photographs for ease of understanding any issues along with detailed explanation. For additional information visit homegauge.com.
I'll be the first to say there are several excellent home inspectors in NJ. Additional all licensed home inspectors have to meet the same requirements. So what makes TFI different? Over the course of the past 30 years we have seen the good, the bad and the ugly in numerous houses as well as continue to uncover new issues never even thought of before. In residential construction, time is money, hence not all workday be done with quality as a priority. Furthermore not all contractors or homeowners are knowledgeable and experienced in the task they are attempting. Although certain problems or findings may not be part of the standard home inspection they may be a sign that additional scrutinization of the property is warranted. Having extensive experience with unscrupulous subcontractors, developers and sellers give TFI an advantage in uncovering many intentional or unintentional hidden troubles.
Additional TFI strives to provide superior customer service and the finest home inspection possible. We firmly believe that customer satisfaction is the key to our future.
