What does a home inspection include?
A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home. We do our best to look at all components of the home that can be accessed. Take a look at the components we will examine.
Detailed reporting on the type of roof, the age, any damage, and if the roof life is minimal.
Is the paint failing? Are there any repairs? Are the windows properly sealed? We examine all areas of the exterior that can be seen.
Foundation & Structure
With our expertise in home construction, we look at the foundation with a wholistic viewpoint to find any signs of failure.
We check outlets, lights, electrical panels, grounding, and much more? Electrical safety is a top priority.
Sinks, toilets, showers/tubs, faucets, type of plumbing, water heater, and more! Our experience helps us find leaks more than the other guys!
We check to make sure the system is cooling/heating properly, the condition of the ductwork, age of the system, any damage, and more.
A home is much more than just systematic components. By examining all interior walls, we can find water intrusion or defects that other inspectors can easily miss.
Yes we go in the attic! Insulation, truss systems, electrical, roof leaks, we will find it!

How Long Does A Home Inspection Take?
First, it must be said, there is no right answer. The length of time it takes to perform a home inspection depends on a few different factors. Factors, such as, how many inspectors are performing the inspection? Another could be the inspector’s inspection routine. Then we must take into consideration the size of the home. Is it a single family or multi-family? How many bedrooms and bathrooms are there? What type of foundation does the home have? Is it finished or unfinished? Are there outbuilding that need inspecting? The list could go on and on. So, how does an inspector determine an estimated time? Answer: It depends..

They did an inspection on a home that we had an accepted offer to purchase. Thanks to the inspection we are moving ahead with the purchase of the home. This is the second time I have used Atkinson and I would highly recommend their services!Mark LuebkeGoogle Review
We contracted with Atkinson to perform our new house inspection before we closed on the house. They were on-time, very thorough and offered some suggestions that were not in their final report. We would definitely recommend them!!!Mark CrowellGoogle Review
