Pre-Purchase Residential Home Inspections FAQ

Why Invest in a Pre-Purchase Home Inspection?

Visual assessments might catch the glaring issues, but beneath the surface lies a complexity only a skilled eye can unravel. Consider this: a leaking roof, malfunctioning electrical systems, or deteriorating pipes aren’t just inconveniences; they’re harbingers of potentially deep financial pits. The upfront cost of a pre-purchase home inspection is a fraction compared to the unforeseen expenses of major repairs like rewiring or roof replacement. When any real estate purchase, understanding exactly what you’re investing in is paramount. A home inspection isn’t merely a step in the buying process; it’s a strategic move towards a wise and informed purchase, often reimbursing itself by leveraging repairs or credits during negotiation.

Why the Disparity in Inspection Fees?

There’s a significant reason why inspection fees vary so widely. It’s not just about slapping a price tag on a service—it’s about the inspector’s expertise, intense training, and cutting-edge tools and technologies they’re bringing to the table. Going for the cheapest option might seem smart at first, but trust us, it could end up costing you a fortune in future repairs and headaches. Investing in a high performance inspection, of which Building Supporters offers the only high performance inspection in Colorado, means you’re getting a pro who knows their stuff inside and out and is prepared to dig deeper when necessary. Remember, “you get what you pay for.”

We’re not just saving you money, we’re saving you big time—protecting, testing, and reporting way more than the others. Led by Brian Cornwell, our team is made up of real past builders, tradespeople, and construction enthusiasts with a wealth of hands-on experience. We’re backed by the highest standards in training, hiring, and education in Colorado. We boast more certifications, memberships, and licenses than anyone else. So, if you want the best, you know where to find us.

Timing the Discovery: How Long Does a Home Inspection Take?

The size, age, and overall condition of the property dictate how long this process is going to take. A compact, well-maintained home might only need about 2.5 hours, but if you’re looking at a larger or more complex property, we’re talking up to 4 hours. We need a minimum of 2 solid, uninterrupted hours to give your home the full attention to detail it deserves.

After those initial 2 hours, we gladly welcome you to join us as we wrap things up. We dedicate at minimum, one full hour to a personalized walk-through with you, breaking everything down one-on-one. We’ll answer all your questions, making sure you feel completely comfortable with how your home works, and guiding you through any maintenance considerations. This isn’t just about checking boxes; it’s about educating you on your investment and ensuring you know exactly what you’re getting. So feel confident, because we’re here to give you the ultimate peace of mind.

Who can see the home inspection report?

The report is exclusive to the client who commissioned the inspection. You’re the boss. If you want your buyer’s agent to see it, that’s only happening upon your request. This exclusivity ensures your confidentiality and the integrity of the entire process.

Let us be crystal clear—we will never share the report without your explicit permission, nor will we ever reveal your personal details. We work with celebrities, high-profile individuals, athletes, and others who expect and deserve absolute discretion. Your privacy is paramount, and we respect it in full. So when you choose us, you’re choosing professionalism and confidentiality, guaranteed.

Do I have to attend the home inspection?

While presence isn’t mandatory, being on-site is invaluable. It affords a firsthand understanding of the property, facilitated question-asking, and witnessing the inspector’s process up close. It is entirely your choice. After the first 2 hours of inspection, we welcome you to join us for one full hour of a personalized walk-through, breaking everything down one-on-one. We’ll answer all your questions, making sure you feel completely comfortable with how your home works, and guiding you through any maintenance considerations.

What are the home inspection outcomes?

A home inspection transcends pass/fail dichotomies. Its essence is to highlight necessary reparations and considerations, enriching negotiations with the seller rather than meeting code compliance. Our high performance reports break things down into 2 simple sections: Major defects and maintenance items.
