When hiring a Home Inspector in the State of Georgia check their background and certifications carefully.

Why is this important?

It's important that your Home Inspector is licensed and certified, and maintains their certification through continuing education. This is in order to give you the most thorough and accurate inspection available. A Home Inspector that is licensed is more likely to know and accurately understand the systems, components, and structures of a home.

3. Are you specifically experienced in residential inspection?

4. Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?

5. How long will the inspection take?

6. How much will it cost?

7. What type of inspection report do you provide and how long will it take to receive the report?

8. Will I be able to attend the inspection?

9. Do you maintain membership in a professional home inspector association?

10. Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date?
