My Promise to You;Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.HOME INSPECTION SERVICES SASo, if you are involved in some or other property transaction on a daily basis or maybe once in a lifetime, several feelings and questions will present themselves as you go through the transaction. Whether the property is intended for you, or for a rental tenant, the transaction will be exciting, possibly daunting, and as the possibilities present themselves one constant is being UNSURE of your satisfaction once the deal is through.You may be asking yourself, “everything looks amazing – but what about the things that I can’t see? What are the hidden costs? What if I get into something that becomes a problem later?”As internationally trained Professional Home Inspectors with the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and as Certified Master Inspectors® with the Certified Master Inspectors Board (CMISA), together with specialised equipment, Home Inspection Services SA will detect hidden problems and present them to you in a clear and objective manner, along with the positive aspects of your intended purchase.Property transactions are possibly one of the largest investments you will ever make. You should know exactly what to expect – both indoors and out – in terms of needed and future repairs and maintenance. A fresh coat of paint could be hiding serious structural problems. Stains on the ceiling may indicate a chronic roof leakage problem. Uncontrolled storm water may be causing serious moisture damage to certain systems on the property. The inspector interprets these and other clues, and then presents a professional opinion as to the condition of the property, so that you can avoid unpleasant problems afterwards.Of course, an inspection will also point out positive aspects of the building, as well as the type of maintenance needed to keep it in good condition.After the Home Inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the property you are dealing with, and be able to make your decisions with a clear audit and understanding.To summarise, our clients include buyers, sellers, investors, developers, contractors, landlords, tenants, property managers and basically anyone who is involved in any property transaction. Whether it be a sale, lease or building draw or any other property transaction, having a detailed audit of the property or building in question, from an independent professional, is a big plus factor to any deal. With the current Consumer Protection Act, a Home Inspection Audit will set the buyer, seller, landlord, tenant, property manager, investor, and everyone involved in the deal at ease and lessen the chances of any legal or other confrontation down the line. Finally, remember that we are certified and governed by an international code of ethic and standards of practice set out by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and Certified Master Inspectors Board of SA.Please have a look at our Standards of Practice for more peace of mind http://www.nachi.org/sop.htmTo check certification as well as allot more information you are welcome to visit: www.internachisa.co.za and www.cmisa.orgHOME INSPECTION SERVICES – YOUR PARTNER IN BUILDING CREDIBILITYA home inspection is all about peace of mind and feeling confident that you know all you need to know about a property before making one of the most important investments of your life.Home Inspection Services empowers you with more vital information about the property and its current condition including:• Moisture problems• Mould infestation• Water damage• Plumbing leaks• Roof and ceiling leaks• Structural concerns• Missing insulation• Ventilation problems• Indications of rodent problemsHome Inspection Services also covers all major systems, including:• Structural• Roofing• Foundation• Plumbing• Insulation• Ventilation• Fireplace• Decks/Porches• Interior/Exterior• Pool operation• Tiling – floor and walls• Walkways• Staircases• Fencing and Railings• WindowsExamples of existing property problems:• Geysers - No drip trays fitted, overflow pipes not extending to the outside walls.
