Home Inspections Vista

Why a home inspection?

Home inspections are a time for gathering as much information as you can about the overall condition and state of a property to make an informed decision whether or not to purchase a property.  A home inspection report not only will provide peace of mind, but also the potential for leverage when negotiating the final purchase price of the home.  You will save a lot of potential headache and money by having the foresight of a home inspection.  Peace of mind and providing information is our commitment to you.

Your home inspection will be a general overview of the home major mechanical and structural components.  It will be a non-invasive examination of readily accessible components within the property.  A home inspection does not include any engineering tests, geological surveys, water quality testing, well inspections, mold spore laboratory testing, septic and sewer inspections or any other type of specific inspection not explicitly covered and contained within the inspection agreement.  If at any time you have a question regarding a specific item or a potential concern, please don’t hesitate to ask.  If the inspector identifies an area of concern, he may recommend further specialized testing or evaluation by a qualified and licensed individual of the trade regarding the issue encountered.

At Red Rock Home Inspections, we understand you want a company that goes above and beyond to look out for your best interest.  That’s why we include a RecallChek and a 90 day home warranty with every home inspection we provide.

What is RecallChek?

RecallChek is the first service for consumer recalls in the United States and has compiled over 210 million recalls from public records, to create a fail-safe system to check for dangerous flaws with home appliances.

What is the 90 Day Warranty?

You need more than just a home inspection, you need professionals you can depend on even after the job is done.  That’s why we back all of our inspections with a 90 Day Limited Structural and Mechanical Warranty.
