Home Buyer's Inspection

An excellent home inspection should identify the general condition of the home and identify any major problems that could adversely affect the habitability of the home you are purchasing. Knowing the true condition of your home puts you in control and gives you the confidence necessary to move forward in purchasing your new home. Our experienced inspectors perform a systematic and thorough inspection of hundreds of items and construct a comprehensive interactive report for your viewing.

We understand that no one involved with the sale wants expensive repairs to turn up during an inspection. But it is important to all parties that defects are properly identified. A thorough inspection protects the buyer from unexpected repairs. Sellers are often willing to repair items they were unaware of before the inspection. A home inspector’s job is to identify any significant issues so the buyer and seller may come to an equitable agreement. Our inspectors will check everything including roof, crawlspace, attic, and appliances. They have the expertise to explain their findings in a professional manner. You will then receive a detailed report assessing the following mechanical and structural components of the home within 24 hours:

  • Central Heating System

  • Central Cooling System

  • Plumbing System

  • Electrical System

  • Roof & Attic Structure

  • Exterior Siding, Soffits, Trim

  • Foundation & Structure

  • Interior Walls, Ceilings & Floors

  • Insulation & Ventilation

  • Built-in Kitchen Appliances

  • Attached Garage

  • Property Grading and Drainage

We invite all home buyers and their agents to attend the inspection. This is a great opportunity ask questions and learn about the home you're buying. Great Lakes Home Inspection is working for you, so make the most of the inspection appointment.


The home inspection is only the beginning of the relationship. As we're available for any questions you may have after the inspection. Additionally, we collect all the serial and model number from the home appliances and verify them every month against a database of manufacturers recalls and alert you to any future risk.
