City Building Inspector vs. GreenWorks Inspector

Some new construction home buyers have been asking, “Why should I hire a home inspector if the city inspector will be inspecting the property?”

 

This is a great, and valid question!

Our home Inspectors use a 600-point checklist, spending hours to examine quality of workmanship & operation of all systems and surfaces. The following list shows the major components included (but not limited to) a GreenWorks inspection!
