Our inspection does not include destructive testing, or lab work unless otherwise requested by the appropriate parties involved.

Upon completion of the physical inspection our inspector conducts a verbal consultation with the client (or all in attendance dependent on the clients preference) to present their findings. At that time our lead inspector takes the time to answer all questions regarding deficiencies found, possible alternative solutions to those problems, and can also discuss brief repair costs with the client.

We provide a wide range of properties inspections.

Castle and Gray Int. Inc. is here to assist you whether you are buying a home and want to know about any and all deficiencies and the potential solutions and cost ramifications to those problems before you make your big purchase, or If you are selling property and wish to know that you are complying with the full disclosure laws, giving you more time to consider selecting general contractors rather than waiting on a potential buyer to do so, or if you are involved in an extensive remodeling job and an independent inspection review will ease your mind in making certain that the contractor you hired is doing or has done the job correctly.

Whatever the need, we can accommodate you.

Home Inspection Preparation

Observation of the following recommendations will help ensure that a complete and proper inspection can be performed:

  • All utility services should be available and active for the inspection. This includes:
  1. Electricity
  2. Water
  3. Gas
  • Access openings to attic and crawl space areas should be readily accessible. Please advise the seller to move any necessary items so that we will have access to crawl spaces and attics. If in a closet all items that would preclude easy access such as placement of a ladder should be moved.
  • Pets should be secured/caged. There is the potential for the inspectors being injured and the inspector cannot be responsible for pets running away when doors are opened and closed.
  • Client should make inspector aware of any particular concerns they have such as problem areas that they observed or that have been disclosed to them.

Allow the inspectors to proceed with the inspection with as little interruption as possible. A proper inspection can only be accomplished when the inspectors can fully concentrate on the items being evaluated.

All question and concerns can and will be addressed at the duration of the inspection during the verbal consultation.
