Q. Can I do my own inspection?
A. Of course, you CAN do your own inspection, but what is your level of expertise and how obective can you be? Whittington Home Inspections are conducted by a professional with training and experience in all aspects of home structure and system functionality. They have no interest in buying or selling the home, so the inspector's objectivity is not biased by the desire to purchase or sell the property.
Q. When do I call a home inspector?

A. When you find a property you wish to purchase, or when you are agreeing to sell your property, base the obligation to buy the property contingent on the outcome of the professional home inspection.
