Regardless of what some people think, we care about you and your home.
But home inspections are more of an art than science.
It’s a combination of finesse, skill, experience, commitment, talent, and training.
And no matter how gifted the inspector, how thorough the inspection, or how hard he tries, something will inevitably go wrong.
I hate to say that but when the timeline is long enough, it will happen.
Nobody’s perfect and no one can predict the future, remember?
Besides, a house is already immensely complex, hiding most of its important parts inside walls, under floors, above ceilings, and behind the insulation.
Not to mention all the furniture, appliances, TVs, clothes, boxes, and shelves (which we can’t move, by the way) that get in the way of everything else we want to see, touch, smell, and feel.
This all creates some pretty big obstacles, but an experienced home inspector develops an intuition that allows him to find most of these hidden problems, anyway.
But as I said before…it’s impossible for a home inspector to find everything or know when something might break, crack or leak.
So if something goes wrong after your home inspection, don’t forget that your home inspector is only human and did the best he could.
Just contact him and try to work out a reasonable solution to get the issue resolved.
