The average time you should allow for your inspection is 2½ to 4 hours, depending on the size and age of the home. Pool and spa inspections, as well as termite inspections are included with a home inspection, but are also available as standalone services.
Even if your home is new, it’s not uncommon to have things go wrong during the first year. Most builders offer a one-year warranty to cover just this type of situation. Contact Arizona Sun at 11 months and we’ll inspect your home so that any needed repairs or corrections can be made while your home is still under a builder’s warranty.
Ask me if you are interested in a comprehensive home warranty offered through Arizona Sun Home Inspection.
