General – Frequently Asked Questions
The question asked by far the most times is, “why do I need a home inspection?”, however it can mean different things to different people so I believe we could split it up into 4 separate questions:
You are about to become liable for paying back more money than you will ever spend on any other item in your life! You will want to be as certain as you can that your investment is a good one and not a money pit that will cost even more money and perhaps heartbreak on into the future. To really know what you are considering buying, an in-depth inspection by a trained SNAPPI member is your smartest choice.
You could call a roofing contractor to inspect the roof or have a plumber evaluate the piping and water heater or even a get a heating/cooling contractor to check out the house furnace and air conditioner but, you know, they all have an agenda; to sell you something! A SNAPPI home and building inspector is there for you only and not to sell a furnace or water heater or new roof. They are an impartial judge of your new home as it is at that point in time. No more fees, no more solicitation calls!
A SNAPPI home and building inspector typically spends a few hours on site, including going over findings with you right there at the house, if you attend the inspection. The buying process is greatly accelerated because you don’t have to spend time finding and making appointments with the plumbing contractor or roofing contractor and then wait for them to show up at the house to do their evaluation and sales pitch. A few hours and it’s done.
A highly trained and professional SNAPPI member takes the time to go over his or her findings with you after the inspection to answer your questions and address your concerns right there at the house. Of course, you will receive a written inspection report including pictures afterwards but there is nothing like being right there on site so you can see and talk about the problems and discuss options for dealing with them. Besides that, you will be given tips on how to maintain your dream home in our harsh desert climate to keep it comfortable and weather tight for years to come! Would a roofing contractor do that for you?
