What to Expect with an AmeriSpec home inspection
Your contract to purchase was accepted by the seller, what’s next? One of the next steps is scheduling a home inspection. A professional home inspection by a qualified and experienced inspector will provide you with an overview and report on the overall, general condition of your future dream home. At AmeriSpec, we walk you through the process every step of the way. Keep the below tips in mind when getting ready for YOUR AmeriSpec Home Inspection.
Prior to the inspection…
Prepare a list of questions or concerns about the property and provide them to the inspection company in advance. This will help ensure that such matters are addressed and that any special arrangements can be made if necessary. This is optional since our ASHI certified inspectors will already be looking at over 400 components of the home and will be reviewing the findings with you in person. If a list helps you, we welcome all of your questions!
Real estate agents should instruct sellers to ensure all areas are accessible to the inspector. For example, if the attic access is in a closet, all clothes and belongings should be removed from that closet, sump pits and electrical panels should be easily accessible too.
During the inspection…
If you are a homebuyer, it is especially important to be present during the inspection. By accompanying the inspector, you will have the opportunity to:
- See the condition of each key component throughout the house and property firsthand, helping give you a better understanding of the home and how it correlates with the report.
- Help ease any concerns about findings which may seem distressing on paper but are in fact superficial. For example, the inspector might explain that inexpensive lubricant can quiet an alarming appliance noise, that an unsightly column needs only a coat of paint, or that the problem causing a water spot appears to have previously been corrected.
- Save time and avoid frustration by learning about the operation of your new home. You may find out how the heating system works, how to light pilot lights, how to turn on various appliances and components, and where shut-offs are. The inspector can also point out maintenance needs and procedures, and explain how and when to check items that need periodic monitoring.
- Have all of your questions and concerns addressed immediately as they arise, room by room.
After the inspection…
We provide you with a printed copy of your inspection report onsite as well as online with pictures. Read your home inspection report thoroughly. If you have concerns or need clarification — no matter how minor the issue — please do not hesitate to call your home inspector. Our AmeriSpec Inspectors are always willing to help put your mind at ease and our full time, experienced office staff are easily reachable via phone or email.

Mitch did a great job with the inspection. Appreciated his thoroughness, explanations, and all the photos related to the house. He answered all our questions and made sure we understood all his findings. Very professional and friendly. Would highly recommend.
Mitch was wonderful. He did a thorough job explaining his findings and made sure we fully understood the issue to address. He answered our many questions and gave honest recommendations. Highly recommended.
Joe did a great job. I recommend Amerispec for any home inspection. He was very thorough, and left very detailed notes. I seriously doubt anything was left out. Pictures were included for every space of the property inside and out. Even after the inspection many tools are provided for future planning of repairs or upgrades. Joe has done 2 home inspections for me so far, and I will seek Amerispec out for my 3rd when that time comes.
Mitch did an amazing job on our home inspection. He was highly knowledgeable and clearly knew what he was doing. Mitch thoroughly walked us through the report. He showed in his report detail not seen in previous home purchases with other companies as the inspector. I would highly recommend Mitch and Amerispec to anyone looking to have their home inspected.
John performed the inspection on a house we are contracting to buy. We are very impressed by his thoroughness and professionalism. (He's a very personable guy, too.) We are also impressed by the digital photos and follow-up reports we received from the company. We would recommend.
