Selecting a Home Inspector

Even the most experienced homeowners can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of a home inspector. 

The home construction industry is constantly changing, and the best inspectors join their local trade organizations.  Home Scan Inspections is a member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), American Home Inspectors Training (AHIT), Wisconsin Association of Home Inspectors (WAHI) and the Great Lakes Chapter of ASHI.  These organizations provide training and networking opportunities that keep our inspectors informed of all the latest trends in the industry.  Properly trained inspectors understand how a home’s systems and components are intended to function, as well as, how and why they fail.

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure of a home, from roof to foundation.  Having a home inspected is like giving a physical checkup.  If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend additional professional evaluations.

Above all, buyers often find it difficult to be completely objective and unemotional about the house they are purchasing, and this may affect their judgement.  It is best to obtain an impartial third-party opinion by an expert in the home inspection business.
