A normal inspection will take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours depending on the size of the house and what is being inspected. A consultation generally being only an hour or so limits the amount of time needed to get the desired info. The inspector will check any specific items in question and advise the client verbally on the outcome and recommendations, on site. Therefore eliminating the wait time associated with a full inspection or the headache associated with calling many different contractors.
Get Only The Info You Need
Sometimes a full home inspection isn’t needed. A consultation focuses only on getting the client the answers to the questions they have. The inspector arrives prepared to use all of their knowledge and tools available to them (including a thermal camera) to investigate any areas of the home in question and consult the client on findings and next course of action.
A consultation is billed by the hour at $149 for the first hour and $99 for every hour after (these prices may change). Most consultations only take one hour so there is a large money savings compared with a normal inspection which can range from $300 to $1000 depending on the size of the home. Clients get the info they need to move forward without costing a small fortune.
Lastly, not all inspectors offer consultations. So the next time someone you know has questions about a water stain, a hot room, or any issue with their home and they don’t know who to call, Panther Inspections can help.
