The Value:

    The Report, oral conference and telephone support are all part of the service provided. Long after a Straight inspection is completed, the Report retains its value and usefulness, often saving the homeowner or buyer thousands of dollars. It is an investment that pays for itself over and over again. All homes have strong and weak points, and they are not always, what they seem. Gain the insight, perspective, and sound information you need to make better decisions with a Straight inspection. In order to get the best value from the inspection, be sure the utilities are on and access to the house is available. Budget about two to three hours to accompany the inspection process and oral conference on how to use the Inspection Report.
