What does the Home Inspector Inspect


What to Expect from your

Home Inspection


CRI Home Inspection offers the most information and inspects more thoroughly. CRI Home Inspection spends the time with their clients, which turns your home inspection into a interactive educational home tour. When other home inspection companies tell you they can't, CRI Home Inspection says we will!

CRI Home Inspection starts the inspection with you at the exterior of the property, where we educate you on how your home functions and what ways are the most effective in preserving the serviceable life of your investment. From there we will work our way around the property, discussing grading, irrigation, drainage, fencing, electrical, exterior finish, etc.  Once inside your home, its time to test; windows, outlets, appliances, lighting fixtures, drains, doors, etc.   CRI home inspection offers the most value at competitive prices. CRI Home Inspection clients are often blown away by the amount of useful information provided to them, during our short time at the property.  To see actual home inspection client feedback, visit our home inspection client reaction page. The following list provides a detailed look into the over 200 different items, in which CRI inspects on every home inspection and this home inspection check list only touches the surface of what CRI Home Inspection offers.
