10 important questions to ask your Home Inspector

  1. What does your inspection cover? Your home inspection is guided by the Standards of Practice designed by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.

  2. How long have you been practicing the home inspection profession, and how many inspections have you performed? Bluffs Inspection Services was formed in April of 2009. Although we are a new company our inspectors have combined experience of over 20 years. Bluffs Inspection Services has performed inspections all across Western Iowa and Eastern Nebraska. Bluffs Inspection Services has had the opportunity to work with clients across the United States.

  3. Are you specifically experienced in residential inspections? Our inspectors come from the construction industry, having working in multiple fields of construction and project bids. We feel that this experience leads to a qualified inspector.

  4. Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection? No inspector or inspection company should offer to do repairs or improvements. Our Code of Ethics strictly prohibits this type of activity.

  5. How long will the inspection take? A typical inspection will average from 2 to 4 hours depending on the size of the property and access to specific areas.

  6. How much will the inspection cost? Cost for an inspection can vary and depends on several factors of the property. Bluffs Inspection Services takes pride in the ability to offer customized services and encourage you to contact us for a personal quote.

  7. What type of inspection report do you provide and how long will it take to receive the report? Bluffs Inspection Services provides a complete narrative report delivered in PDF format. We make every effort to fully educate our clients on the condition of the property. Your report will be available no later than 48 hours after the inspection.

  8. Will I be able to attend the inspection? We encourage our clients to attend the inspection. This allows you to see what your inspector sees at the time of the inspection. We only ask that questions be kept to a minimum and saved until the inspection is complete.

  9. Do you maintain membership in a professional home inspector association? Bluffs Inspection Services Inspectors are all current members of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.

  10. Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date? Bluffs Inspection Services believes that education is vital to success. Our Inspectors complete over 35 hours of continuing education each year.
