Your home is one of the biggest investments that you will make. Choosing the right home inspector for this major investment can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you may not have the opportunity to meet us until after you hire us. Different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you honor us by permitting Comfort Zone Home Inspection, Inc to inspect your new home, I guarantee that we will give it our very best effort.
Ready to buy? Don’t forget to get your new potential home inspected! Home sellers don't advertise if their roof leaks in the rain, or if mice have chewed holes in the basement walls. We uncover expensive, or even hazardous issues that real estate agents and even some homeowners overlook, and provide a full report with our recommendations to make your best informed choice!
Sure, that house might look nice on the outside, but what about those pipes and wires? Uncover any plumbing or electrical issues your home of interest has, or figure out what exactly isn't working in the home you already live in, so that you can make the best informed decision possible.
Radioactive gas could cause health problems for yourself and your family for life. Stop the cycle before it begins, and call for an inspection on a previously owned home you're interested in. The cost of a one-day inspection is next to nothing compared to thousands of dollars of remediation, not to mention the priceless health and safety of your family.
Dedicated Inspectors to all our clients questions and needs makes us the best Home Inspectors in the area.
Why Do I Need a Home Inspection?
The purchase of a home is probably the largest single investment you will ever make. You should learn as much as you can about the condition of the property and the need for any major repairs before you buy, as to minimize unpleasant surprises and difficulties afterwards. After the inspection, you will have a much clearer understanding of the property. If you are already a homeowner, a home inspection may be used to identify problems in the making and take preventative measures which might avoid costly repairs in the future. If you are planning to sell your home on the market, you may wish to have an inspection performed prior to placing your home on the market. This will give you a better understanding of the conditions which may be discovered by the buyer's inspector and an opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in a better selling position. Having an inspection will help you comply with current disclosure laws concerning the sale of your property.
How Long Does a Home Inspection Take?
Every home inspection is different. A lot depends on the size of the home, the age of the systems and the number of questions you have. However, you should plan on 2 to 3 hours to complete an inspection on a single home.
Can a Home Inspection Fail?
NO! A professional home inspection is an examination of the condition of the home on the day it is inspected; it is not an appraisal, which determines market value or a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance, but rather describes its visible physical condition and indicates what may need major repairs in the near future.
Do I Have to Be There?
It is not necessary for you to be present for the inspection, but it is highly recommended. You will be able to accompany the inspector and ask questions directly as you learn about the condition of the home, how the systems work and how to maintain it. You will also find the written report easier to understand if you've seen the property firsthand through the inspector's eyes.
When Will I Get My Report?
Because we won't use simple check-list style reports, we need to write your report off-site. Generally, you will have your report within a few hours of completing your inspection. In every instance you will have it within 24 hours of your inspection
Sellers can speed their home inspection by following these suggestions. The inspection will go smoother, with fewer concerns to delay closing.
1. Confirm that water, electric and gas service are on, with gas pilot lights burning.
2. Ensure pets won't hinder the inspection. Ideally, they should be removed from premises or secured outside. Tell your agent about any pets at home.
3. Replace burned out bulbs to avoid a "Light is inoperable" report that may suggest an electrical problem.
4. Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and replace dead batteries.
5. Clean or replace dirty HVAC air filters. They should fit securely.
6. Remove stored items, debris and wood from foundation. This condition may invite the comment of "inaccessible" which may incur a re-inspection and a delay in closing.
7. Remove items blocking access to HVAC equipment, electric service panels, water heaters, attics and crawl spaces.
8. Unlock areas the inspector must access - attic doors or hatches, electric service panels, closets, fence gates and crawl spaces.
9. Trim tree limbs to 10' from the roof and shrubs from the house to allow access.
10. Attend to broken or missing items like doorknobs, locks and latches; windowpanes, screens and locks; gutters, downspouts and chimney caps. Checking these areas before your home inspection is an investment in selling your property. Your real estate agent will thank you!
Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming.
What should you do?
Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expediencies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
1. Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
2. Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.
3. Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.
4. Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4). Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection.
Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure or nit-picky items.

I am a first time home buyer. I initially was recommended another home inspector by a family member. I ended up taking the advice of our real estate agent instead who spoke so highly of Dan at Comfort Zone.... and I’m so glad I did! Dan was professional, thorough, and friendly throughout the whole experience. My husband and I felt like we had an old friend completing our home inspection! I truly felt like I learned a lot about being a home owner and maintaining our new home. Dan was honest and gave us some great advice about overall home ownership/property maintenance. If you’re looking for a home inspection you can truly trust and even learn from... go with Comfort Zone!!!!
Dan did my home inspection and was very helpful in answering general questions I had about what to expect as a potential homeowner! I am also glad I was able to schedule an appointment so easily online! He moves fast, but thoroughly and was great at explaining areas of the house that might need attention if/when we close on the property and general cost estimates. Highly recommend!
Dan was extremely thorough and professional. He helped me as a first-time home-buyer to understand not only existing issues but also potential ones which might arise in the future, and he helped me to clearly understand both the condition of the property and what would be involved in fixing it. He was quick with communication and available to work around my schedule, and his rates were very reasonable.
Dan is an extremely qualified home inspector, also he has the customers best interest in mind. When I arrived at the home he was inspecting we had every intention of testing for radon, after investigating the home Dan explained that the home already had a radon mitigation system that wasn’t currently operating. Instead of charging me the $150 to do a radon test he referred me to a local expert on radon mitigation and informed me that the person would test for radon after he serviced the mitigation system. Dan easily could have continued with the radon test and made himself $150 and I never would have questioned it. Instead he did the right thing and proved that he is a customer first business owner. I will always go to comfort zone for my home inspection needs. Thanks Dan!
Great choice if you're looking for a home inspector! Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was his pricing reasonable, he was clearly knowledgeable and willing to answer all of our questions with a smile. I was honestly a little skeptical of so many 5-star reviews and not a single review less, but I get it now lol not a single complaint from me and my wife. Thorough, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly, all at a reasonable price. Call him!
Dan was awesome and we appreciate everything he was able to tell us. He looked over every fine detail and provided a wealth of knowledge. He answered every question we had, provided professional advice as well as personal advice. He gave us the confidence to move forward with purchasing a home. Money well spent today
