FAQ


How much does a home inspection cost?

A home inspection is based on the size of the home, age, and if there are detached garages or additional structures on the property. Additional fees are charged for inspections performed on weekends and holidays. A single family home with an attached garage that is between 1000 and 2000 square feet will normally cost $425.

What part of the home is inspected?

A Saturno Home Inspection follows the InterNACHI Standards of Practice. Our inspections cover a wide range, including the electrical system, heaters and furnaces, plumbing, bedrooms, kitchen, laundry, exterior, driveway, attic, roof, foundation, decks, insulation, windows, doors, floors, siding, all visible framing, and more.

Why should I have a home inspection

The purchase of a home is one of the largest single investments you’ll ever make. Since it’s such a big investment, you need to know the current condition of the property, as well as any repairs and maintenance that will be needed in the future. A professional home inspection informs the homebuyer of the property’s condition. We can identify issues and determine if they are merely cosmetic, or might possibly be evidence of a greater issue that needs immediate repair. A stains on the ceiling may simply be the result of a resolved leak, or they could indicate chronic roof leakage and water damage. After evaluating the property, we will present our professional opinion on the property’s condition. This will give you a clear understanding of the home so you can make a confident decision. If you’re selling your house, getting an inspection before you put your house on the market can help identify areas in need of repair so that you can feel confident about the value of your home.
