Home inspection services
AmeriSpec Omaha and Lincoln offers a variety of home inspection services. Traditionally, home buyers request an inspection before closing to identify any potential problems or concerns.
Home sellers also request pre-sale inspections so they can address potential issues before an offer is made on their home, making the process faster, smoother and more cost-effective for both sellers and their brokers.
For new construction, too
A home inspection on a new house is a great idea. Even though the house may be newly built, there still could be problems with the construction or installation. The usual warranty may not cover these issues. If they’re hidden, they may not surface for several years – after causing major damage.
A thorough home inspection by AmeriSpec helps ensure minor issues or potential major problems are addressed before closing on the home.
Protecting Your Greatest Investment
AmeriSpec was featured in a six-minute segment on “Designing Spaces,” a popular, nationally aired home improvement show on Lifetime TV. The segment, called “Protecting Your Greatest Investment,” explains how important home inspections are in the home buying process.
Inspection vs. warranty
A home inspection is NOT a home warranty. There are major differences between them.
- A home inspection is designed to make you aware of existing issues with almost every area of your home from the foundation to the roof.
- Home warranties are designed to protect you against future failures of most appliances and mechanical systems. Note that warranties do not cover many areas, such as foundations, roofs, exterior components, safety issues, etc.
- Warranties only cover mechanical components, and will not cover issues that are in disrepair or would be considered a pre-existing issue.
- A home inspection will make you aware of the current conditions of the mechanical systems.
At AmeriSpec Omaha and Lincoln, we recommend that all home buyers purchase a home warranty to protect you against future failures that home inspections cannot predict.
