Our Home Inspection Process
Our home inspection process, whether they be for first time home buyer‘s, sellers, real estate agencies, or investors, are performed the same way every time. We pride ourselves on our process and our use of modern technology to help inform our home inspection assessments so that we can provide our customers with accurate and detailed information which helps them make good decisions, whether it be for purchasing, selling, or scheduling renovations.
In our full home inspections, we cover every major system of the property including the roof, exterior, grounds and landscaping, foundation and structural elements, electrical system, plumbing system, and HVAC system. Our home inspections, unless limited in scope, usually look at 150 to 250 individual elements of the home and our inspections normally take between 2.5 to 4 hours depending on the size of the property.
All of our home inspectors are thoroughly trained, first through either InterNACHI or ASHI which are the nationally and internationally recognized governing and certifying bodies of the Home Inspection trade. Our home inspectors then undergo field training with our lead home inspector and learn the Golden Gate Home Inspections process to make sure that every home inspection we perform has the same level of attention to detail and informed assessment. The last step of our home inspection process is that each home inspection report is reviewed by our lead inspector before it is released to the customer or real estate agent.
Our Inspection Tools
Another part of our home inspectors training is our continuing education program. Continuing education and periodic training is a part of our mission to be the best home inspection company in the San Francisco Bay Area. All of our inspectors perform continuing training at least twice per year with the governing bodies of their home inspection certifications and internally we hold regular meetings to discuss best practices and train on new technology to make sure we continually outperform our competitors and give the best results to our customers!
