What is included in a Pillar To Post Home Inspection?

The inspection time is approximately 2-3 hours depending on the size of the house. We perform a very comprehensive 1,600-point inspection. The inspection focuses on the major components and systems of the house. We will inspect all areas of the home including; roofs, attic spaces; evaluate the foundation structure and any crawlspaces, we inspect the electrical, plumbing and heating/cooling systems. We inspect kitchens, bathrooms and all living spaces: we will operate all fixtures in the bathroom and kitchen and operate all kitchen appliances. Throughout the house we check and operate all outlet, plugs, lights, windows and doors. Some specialized systems and components may not be inspected such as pools, sprinklers, and entertainment sound systems.

At the conclusion of the inspection we provided a computerized report on site, or we will email a PDF version with digital photos to you by the end of that day. You will be provided a 3-ring binder that includes a home maintenance checklist, a cost estimate guide and some valuable coupons for PODS and California Closets just to name a couple. Also included is a Free Home Energy Evaluation from Dr. Energy Saver!

We are trusted in the home inspection industry, and this trust is held in high regard. Our clients receive a professional home inspection, and education on how to properly operate and maintain the home. We understand that our clients rely on our services, and on an unbiased and accurate report, and we are dedicated to meeting these client needs in a courteous and knowledgeable manner. Our customers are encouraged to participate in the home inspection, and all questions and concerns will be promptly addressed.

“Everything - The whole experience was fantastic. Andrew was so knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. The inspection was thorough and we learned so much from the process.

“I am a first time home buyer. I was bit nerves before starting meeting Andrew. He explained me every details of the home and explained about the function of the appliance, heater and etc and made me comfortable about maintenance of the home. He pin pointed each and every issue of the house and documented the same in detail. Which helped me to know the issue in the home and get it fixed before moving in to the home.”
— Prabhu in Rocky Hill

“Excellent customer service, very accommodating and professional. I am a Realtor and have recommended and used Pillar to Post for clients many times. That is why I chose to use them for my own personal home”
— Donna with Prudential

“Drew was professional, Knowledgeable and extremely thorough. We really feel that we are now aware of any and all issues with the property and learned quite a bit during the inspection. Drew took his time to ensure that every issue was addressed even though the inspection ran over our originally scheduled time period. We would definitely recommend pillar to post again, specifically Drew. Nicole in the office was also quite helpful.”
— Mike in Cromwell
