What is a home inspection?
A home inspection is a service where a licensed Home Inspector goes through the home in an effort to determine the condition of a variety of systems and components based upon rules set out by New York State. The goal is to advise the client about items of major concern, minor concern, and of no concern. However, it is easy to walk through nearly any home and identify a myriad of items that could be better, but that doesn't always address the impacts of the findings to the buyer. A detail that may be endearing in an older home may be considered a flaw in a newer home. Because of this nuance, no two inspections should be exactly the same. The core principles remain the same, identifying defects, but a reasonable application of the findings is what Discovery Home Inspections delivers through experience and intellect.
