Top Shelf Inspection

Providing a professional analysis of your new home for your protection


What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual nondestructive examination of the systems and structure of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is similar to getting a physical checkup. If a problem or symptom is discovered, the inspector may recommend further evaluation. The inspection will take approximately two to three hours to complete, depending on the size and age of the home. A home inspection is not a warranty or insurance program but a method to assist you in understanding the condition of your new home.

Keeping Things in Perspective

All homes have problems. The question is what and how serious are the problems. We can help you understand important issues relating to your home and will communicate that to you. We are sensitive to the emotions present during the transaction and know that the timely delivery of the message is as important as its content.
