A knowledgeable, detail-oriented home inspection is invaluable when buying a home in the Vancouver area. Our goal at Murphy Home Inspection is to provide you with a detailed, easy-to-understand report, that does not include false defects. Once your inspection is completed, we will compile and edit your report so that it is ready for you within 24 hours. Most often we deliver reports in less than 24 hours and will have it ready the same day as your inspection. We follow the local standards of practice for home inspectors, which include the following components of the home:
- Central Cooling
- Built-in kitchen appliances
During the inspection your home inspector will need to remain focused, providing them the space without distractions can help to deliver the best inspection possible. After the inspection is complete, there will be time for a walk-through of the home to discuss the findings of the inspection, and you can always call with follow-up questions should any come up once you review the report.
An important service that we recommend when purchasing a home is a sewer scope of the main drain line, which connects to the city sewer or septic system. Since this pipe is buried in the ground, repairs can be quite expensive. When we perform a sewer scope on the home, we will use a special camera to view the inside of the pipe that connects the house to the sewer line under the street. Your sewer scope report will come with a video to help illustrate any defects or damage to the pipe that may be present.
According to the environmental protection agency, radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, just after cigarette smoke. Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that is emitted from the soil. Depending on what minerals or rocks are in the soil under your home, there may be more or less radon gas being emitted from soil and becoming trapped in the home. We have the proper testing equipment to provide a 48-hour radon test in the home during the real estate inspection period. Once the test is complete, we will have the results immediately, there is no need to wait for any lab test results.
