How Long Does a Home Inspection Take?

Generally speaking, a detailed professional home inspection by a certified inspector will take anywhere from two to five hours to complete – if it is done correctly. During the home inspection your inspector should insect the following:

  1. Roof
  2. Attic
  3. Exterior & Grounds
  4. Windows
  5. Doors
  6. Driveway/Walkway
  7. Electrical System
  8. Plumbing System
  9. Central Air System
  10. Heating System
  11. Walls
  12. Ceilings
  13. Floors
  14. Foundation
  15. Basement
  16. Structural components

There is no definitive time frame for home inspections as each home is unique and the time involved can vary for many reasons, such as total square footage (or area) of the home, age of the home, age of major systems, number of major systems in the home, overall condition of the property, how accessible certain areas are, a joining structure to be inspected, pool/hot tub inclusion, additional ancillary inspection services requested (mold, radon, air quality, water quality, lead-based paint, etc), weather conditions, questions that clients ask, etc.

The bottom line to remember here – is that you want your home inspector to take as long they need to ensure that you receive a first-rate comprehensive inspection. After all – who do you really want to hire – the home inspector that does the most or fastest inspections – or the home inspector that does the most comprehensive inspections? It’s your money – and you will get what you pay for.
