Gina and Albert are a team of Professional Licensed Home Inspectors. They inspect the homes together the majority of the time. Albert will walk on the rooftop whenever it is safe and accessible for him to do so, checking the entire roofing system and all roof penetrations. He will check the attic, looking for water penetration, proper framing, load bearing walls, inside and outside, down to and including the foundation system. With this method, we are checking the house from top to bottom.
(A special note about the roof: Your inspector will be able to access most 1-story roofs. He is sometimes unable to access some 2-story roofs and is typically unable to access 3+-story roofs, unless second- or third-floor exterior patios provide access. Due to the potential fall / safety hazard, the inspector makes the final determination if he can safely access the roof while at the inspection. Albert has a phantom 3 drone that can take pictures of the roof. The drone cannot be used in areas with a lot of tree limbs as it may get hung in the branches. Otherwise, we will be closely inspecting the roof with binoculars and from the inside for possible water penetration from the underside while in the attic.)
The home that you have just put under contract is likely to be your largest financial investment. It only makes sense to ensure the home with which you fell in love is a home where you can live with peace of mind. A professional home inspection is an unbiased report on the visible and accessible components of a house including: foundation, grading, drainage, roof, attic, walls, windows, doors, ceilings, stairways, fireplaces, chimneys, porches, balconies, decks, carports, garages, heating and cooling systems, plumbing and fixtures, electrical and built-in appliances. The small cost of a GNA Professional Home Inspection can save you hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars in repair costs by alerting you to potential maintenance and repair issues.
