lexington ky home inspection

Last week, we wrote about one of the main reasons for having a Lexington Ky Home Inspection: to know up front about the possibility of needed home repairs before buying a house. Replacing the timber supports and repairing a foundation were just two of the most expensive home repairs. Here are some more:

 

Roof repairs

The roof is probably the one area prospective home buyers never get to see. And yet a replacement can easily be the most costly expense an owner will ever have to endure. At Absolute Home Inspection, we pride ourselves in providing a thorough roof evaluation as part of our normal home inspection. Unlike other companies, we do not view your roof from the ground using binoculars. We actually walk the entire roof, when possible, looking for any trouble spots or areas of concern. Our report will note the age of the roof, the average life expectancy, the condition of the valleys and chimney flashing, and if sealing, repairs, or roof replacement is needed. Putting a new roof on a house can cost upwards of $6000.

 

Exterior repairs

Another expensive area is maintenance of the home exterior. Does the home need repainting? Are the window sills rotted? Does the vinyl siding have holes or need repair? Our Lexington Ky home inspection includes an analysis of the exterior walls as well as eaves, soffits, facias, porches, and decks. The typical cost to paint a home exterior ranges from $3,000 to $8,000.

signs of a good home inspector

All home inspection companies are not created equal. Here are four things to look for when choosing a home inspector:

1. They answer the phone

This basic test is a telling barometer of how easy (or difficult) it will be for you to communicate with your home inspection company. A sign of a poor home inspection company is one that doesn’t answer the phone and doesn’t return calls in a timely manner.

Here at Absolute Home Inspection, we pride ourselves in being available to our current and future clients. We answer the phone and return calls promptly. Try us! 859-230-1450.

2. No hidden fees

A reputable home inspector will be upfront about how much it will cost to do a home inspection on a particular home.

Absolute Home Inspection provides free quotes online and over the phone. All possible costs will be thoroughly explained beforehand – with no surprises after the fact.

3. Thorough inspection of the home

A sign of a good home inspector is that they do the job they were hired to do. They show up on time and do a thorough inspection of the home.

At Absolute, we adhere to the National Association of Home Inspectors guidelines when performing each inspection. We place so much emphasis on building good client relations that our tagline is Prompt, Professional, Courteous … Absolute.

4. Timely report

Great home inspection companies don’t make you wait for the information.

At Absolute Home Inspection we quickly provide a report that details any issues including a summary and photos- typically within 24 hours. And for even greater efficiency, we email it to you in digital format. This makes communicating with your realtor about any issues a snap as you can easily pull photos and descriptions from the report into an email.
