How much does a home inspection cost? Fees are based on the square footage, age and type of home. Inspections for most homes are less than $400. It’s a bad idea to hire a home inspector based on price alone, as there are many inexperienced and unqualified inspectors operating in Colorado, which has no licensing or other requirements.

Why should I choose Home Insite for my home inspection? Experience is the best measure of any home inspector. Don Woodring, our principal inspector, has performed many thousands of inspections, and is a former contractor, facility supervisor, consultant, and home inspection instructor at the ASHI School.

Are Home Insite Inspectors Licensed? Unfortunately, there is no licensing for Home Inspectors in Colorado at this time. Our Principal Inspector, Don Woodring, is certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors, the most rigorous certification available, which surpasses virtually all Licensing requirements in the States that do have them.

What Services do you provide? We provide home inspections for perspective home buyers, Pre-listing Inspections for Home Sellers, One Year Warranty Inspections (for owners of new build homes), Radon Testing, Thermal Imaging Scans, Mold, Lead paint, and asbestos screening, and sewer video scope evaluation (thru an independent sub-contractor).

Do I need to be present during the Inspection? We encourage you to attend the inspection if possible. Some clients attend the entire inspection, some come near the end for a wrap-up, and some are unable to attend. In any case, our comprehensive report will be delivered the next business day, and will allow you to fully understand the findings. And we are happy to answer questions any time after the inspection by phone or email.

What components are included in a home inspection? We inspect all the primary components of the home, as specified in the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).  This includes the roof, gutters, exterior siding and trim, grading, windows and doors, electrical panels. lights and outlets, plumbing system and fixtures, heating and cooling systems, attics and crawlspaces, structure, appliances, and many other items.

How long does a home inspection take? The average home inspection takes approximately 2-3 hours. Smaller condos may take 1-1.5 hours, and large houses may take up to 5 or 6 hours. Sometimes, we work as a team of two inspectors, which will reduce the time needed for the inspection.
