Frequently asked questions
Why should I have a professional home inspection?
A home purchase is likely one of the biggest investments you will ever make, and an inspection from AmeriSpec® helps provide the information you need to feel confident about it. After receiving our thorough, objective report detailing the home's condition, you'll be able to make a smart, informed decision.
How long does an inspection take?
The process usually takes two to three hours depending on size, age and condition of the home and any additional services provided.
Do I need to be present during the inspection?
Ideally, yes. The goal of a home inspection is not just to inspect the property, but also to educate the homeowner or potential buyer about the property's condition. This is better achieved if you are present at the time of the inspection.
How will the inspection help me determine the condition of the home?
During the course of the home inspection, the inspector will explain the condition of the property. You will also be provided with the AmeriSpec Report to help you make an informed purchasing decision.
What is included in The AmeriSpec Report?
The AMERISPEC REPORT is an easy-to-reference document detailing the condition of the home's major components (such as heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc.). In addition, you'll receive a Seasonal Maintenance Checklist with tips for keeping your home in shape, a free subscription to HomeBinder, and savings on home services from the ServiceMaster® Family of Brands.

Since its inception, AmeriSpec has conducted in excess of 2 million inspections. AmeriSpec has more than 150 independently owned and operated businesses with insured, well-trained home inspectors who perform more than 80,000 inspections annually in the United States and Canada.
