What to Expect From Our Inspections

Whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your home, Integrity Home Evaluation Services provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us.  As certified and licensed home inspectors, we will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We follow the Standards of Practice (Rule 1301:17-1-17) and Canons of Ethics (Rule 1301:17-1-16) for home inspectors established by the State of Ohio (Ohio Revised Code 4764).

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the home and systems’ general condition with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
