Here are answers to a few of the questions we are often asked.


Common Home Inspection Questions

-What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible systems and components of the home at the time of the inspection. This will provide you with a better understanding of the physical conditions of the property.

-What Is Inspected?
We inspect all of the readily accessible systems and components of the house. These include, but are not limited to, The Roof & Attic, Exterior coverings including site grading, All Living Areas, Garages, Structure/ Foundation, Electrical, Heating and Cooling, Kitchens including appliances, Laundry Room including washer and dryer and Health, Fire and Safety items .These item include Carbon monoxide testing, leaking gas valves.  Additional services such as radon, meth, and mold/air quality testing are available but require additional fees.

-What Is Not Part Of The Home Inspection?
A home inspection is not a code compliance inspection nor does it cover any area which is not exposed or any items that maybe concealed. The inspection does not include any destructive testing or dismantling, It is not intended to determine the property value. It does not protect a client from future failure of any system or components and is not intended as an insurance policy.

-Can The House Fail The Home Inspection?
No…..There is no “passing” or “failing”. Our goal at Hogan Home Inspection is to accurately report on the physical condition of the house in a very calm, straight forward, and professional manner while indicating what repairs might be necessary or what items may need to be monitored for change in the future. The results can then be compared to the real estate ‘Offer To Purchase and Contract’ and a determination made as to what items are subject to negotiation.

-What Kind Of Report Will I Receive?
You will receive a complete and thorough report. We employ the very latest hardware and software to create a computer-generated report to transmit our findings. We include digital photographs and videos of pertinent issues that we might find. We strive to construct our reports in an easily “readable” format without the use of fancy jargon; anyone, irrespective of their background or knowledge of homes, should be able to read and understand our reports. Our reports have proven to be very effective and have been very well received.

-When Will I Receive The Inspection Report?
The client receives the report via E-Mail within 24 hours of the date the inspection was performed. Hogan Home Inspection doesn’t make anyone wait until tomorrow or next week to provide the information that our clients pay us to provide.

-How Long Does An Inspection Take?
A typical inspection for an average size home will normally take 2-3 hours to accomplish. Larger and/or older homes may take significantly longer because, simply there is more to inspect and report on.

-How do we take care of payment?

Payment is due when we meet up at the end of the inspection to do our walk-through.

Forms of payment accepted include:
Cash, Check, Money Order, Visa, Master Card, Discover Card and American Express

Our main service area is Salt Lake Valley, but we will also travel to Utah, Davis, and Tooele Counties for a small travel fee. We look forward to working with you and inspecting your home!
