Get A Home Inspection From The Owner Of The Company
Nobody works harder for you, the client, than Ellis Home Inspections, LLC! The success of our business depends on exceeding your expectations for quality and professionalism each and every time. You just don’t get that level of service from “employee inspectors!” Be sure to get an inspection from a professional company because they have a vested interest in insuring your Total Satisfaction!
Also, it takes an inspector at least 100 inspections to develop the eyes, ears and nose for hunting down problems. Part-time home inspectors simply don’t have the time in the field to develop that radar.
On the other hand, if the inspector is doing three or more inspections a day, he’s probably not spending the time needed to do a detailed job. A thorough inspection is going to take around 2.5 to 3.5 hours. Anything less and you’re just getting a drive by inspection.
Education & Training
Home inspectors are responsible for evaluating all of the systems and components of the home — not just one aspect such as the brick or the framing. To be able to provide a competent evaluation of all of these elements takes formal education and training.
Did the inspector attend one of the top home inspection schools?
Matthew Ellis, owner of Ellis Home Inspections, LLC, attended Inspection Certification Associates(ICA) completing more that 120 hours of course work and classroom training for his NC Home Inspector License. He also completed more than 120 hours of course work and classroom training from InterNACHI School to earn his SC Home Inspector License.
Comprehensive, continuing education and training is a must!
The Inspection Report
The top home inspectors in today’s business don’t produce handwritten reports. A professional inspector will provide at least a 25+ page detailed computer generated report with color photos.
The report to should be written in plain English, not some “Techno Jargon”- that only the home inspector can understand.
The report should not contain repair cost estimates. Inspectors should NEVER make repairs or offer to make repairs at a later date. An inspector that makes repairs should always be avoided due to the conflict of interest inherent in that situation. All national home inspection associations forbid this lack of integrity and objectivity.
Ask for a sample of an inspection report so you’ll know what you can expect for your time and money. After all, you are the client!
Ellis Home Inspections, LLC is family owned and operated.
Matthew Ellis is a Licensed Professional Home Inspector for both North and South Carolina.
