Exceptions would be in the roof is brittle and there would be a danger of damage – either way, we will document inspection efforts in the report. In such cases, and for roofs over 1 story high – we deploy state of the art DJI aerial drones – equipped with high-resolution cameras that enable us to inspect even the most difficult of roofs.
Yes, and No!
Yes – we give a ‘face value’ ball park figure based upon what we can see – keeping in mind this could be the tip of the iceberg. Generally, if a repair or defect is noted, and the cost to repair could potentially cost upwards of 1000 – we will recommend on the report to obtain a number of formal quotes by the appropriate contractor

You do not have to attend the inspection – our reports will be highly detailed and will appraise you of everything that we inspect within the property – however you are of course welcome to attend throughout the inspection.
We will need to have access to the property initially, and finally an authorized representative to secure the property upon our departure. This is commonly the seller, listing agent or your agent.
