What to Expect
A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision. The inspection provides an invaluable learning and discovery experience during which your questions can be answered on the spot. We wholeheartedly encourage you to accompany us during the inspection.
At Safe Haven, we take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The electronic report includes a clear description of what we've found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them.
