Home Inspection Services
When you hire a home inspector you need an experienced professional that you can trust. With American West Home Inspection you get the experience of years in the building industry along with the training and service that you can trust and count on. We not only evaluate the condition of the house's major systems and structural integrity, but we also evaluate how these systems work together and identify those areas that need to be watched, serviced or replaced.
As your home inspector we will give you the Big Picture analysis of the house you are purchasing or selling. If we identify the need for any costly, detailed analysis of any of the house's systems or structures, we will recommend the appropriate professional, which may be an experienced engineer with the expertise of analyzing that particular system or structure. The need for this kind of expensive, detailed analysis is rare.
Hiring a professional engineer on your own can be a disappointing and costly experience. Though they are experts within their field, and there are many, they don't have the generalist knowledge to inspect a house for all of its integrated components and their functions. Additionally, a home inspector does not involve engineering analysis but rather that of one being a generalist . Therefore, hiring a professional engineer to complete a home inspection undoubtedly costs more, but it may not give you the results you desire and deserve when seeking the overall functionality of a home.
