About Your Inspection

What to expect from your inspection.

During Your Inspection

Whether you’re in the process of buying, selling, or maintaining your home, rest assured that we’re here to provide professional and high-quality service right from the moment you reach out to us.

When you choose Top Choice Home Inspections, you’ll not only receive a thorough inspection but also an educational experience. We’ll take you on a guided tour through your home, explaining everything to the extent of your interest. Our commitment to excellence is evident through our adherence to both the Ohio Code of Ethics and Standard of Practice and the nationally recognized Standards of Practice for home inspectors set by InterNACHI.

After Your Inspection

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems 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, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
