Our Commitment to You

A home inspection is a visual examination of a property that allows you to detect hidden damage, ensure your home’s construction is up to par, and avoid any repairs that can cost you down the line.

At Turn Key Home Inspections, we understand that a home inspector has two jobs: to find the problems, and to clearly notate them for you and your agent. This is why we are committed to providing you with the most thorough and comprehensive home inspections possible.

The Home Inspection Process

Step One

We invite you to walk along with us while we conduct a thorough inspection of your property.

Step Two

Once we’ve compiled our notes, we will send you and your agent a detailed report annotating what we found.

Step Three

Frequently Asked Questions

Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to ensure you know what to expect during your home inspection.

A home inspection includes checking for any structural issues such as foundation cracks, roof leaks, plumbing issues, electrical wiring, heating/cooling systems, insulation, windows, doors, chimneys, etc. Depending on how big the property is, a home inspection typically takes 2-3 hours.

Ensure all inspection points are free from clutter, including any closets that might lead to a crawlspace or attic, and clearing some space around your home’s perimeter. It’s also important to check the functionality of all built-in appliances, electric, and gas. If you don’t plan to attend the inspection, make sure your inspector has access to the home, and all pets are properly contained or moved.

A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of your home’s components. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your home inspection report, but these are strictly informative.

While you can legally skip a home inspection in many cases, doing so could mean  you may end up buying a home that has major issues that need to be fixed.


While a home inspector may recommend some minor repairs, they are not qualified to make major repairs. He or she can provide information about what needs to be repaired — and it might be helpful to know that information — but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this give you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.

A home inspection can affect appraisals for two reasons: 1) The inspector may find something wrong with the property that would lower the value of the home, 2) The inspector may find things that need repair which could increase the value of the home. If the inspection finds issues that require repairs, then the seller has to decide whether they want to fix them themselves, or hire someone else to do it. If the buyer wants to purchase the home, he/she must be willing to pay for those repairs.

Most inspection reports are emailed out within 24-hours after completion of the inspection. We take great pride in offering the most well-written inspection reports and know that it is important to have as much time as you need to read over your report, before making such an important decision. Our inspector works on your report from the time of the on-site inspection, until it is emailed to you. Each property is unique and the report completion time depends on the condition and size of the property inspected. If an inspection company is promising same-day or on-site reports for every property, they often fail to take necessary time to thoroughly inspect the property, fail to do proper research as needed, and fail to accurately report on the overall condition of the property. At times, additional research is required when back at the office, to provide you with the best and most thorough report possible.  

The cost of a home inspection can vary, depending on the age and square footage of the home. We provide the best value for your dollar in comparison to other home inspection companies.Cost should not be a deciding factor for something as important as the purchase of your future home. A home inspector’s qualifications and credentials are very important, and that’s why our inspectors stay up-to-date with the most current home inspection industry education available.

Yes we encourage our clients to attend the home inspection when possible. This gives the clients a chance to ask questions and see the inspector’s findings first hand. When attending is not practical, we remain ready to answer any questions you may have. Our job is not complete until you have a solid understanding of the home, its systems/components, and the detailed inspection report we deliver to you.

We are here to answer questions and discuss your inspection report with you 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Inspections are generally booked during daylight hours, to provide the best visual conditions for the inspection.

Yes, sometimes the weekend is the only time the client can attend. We work with our clients, realtors and sellers to find the best day and time for everyone involved. 

Yes, we offer discounts for Military Veterans, Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics and EMTs.
