Home Examinations

Before hiring any labor or subcontractor, it is important to know what the scope of work is of each project in order to have better control over the outcome and costs. We can help you with this by performing a Home Examination.

  • What do you do when you want to remodel your home? Do you call a contractor or an architect?
  • What do you do when you have a home repair, and you do not know what to do or what tradesman to call?
  • What do you do when the repair was done, but the problem still exists.

Together, we will do a walkthrough of your home (interior and exterior), develop your to-do list, addressing your concerns. At the end of the walkthrough you’ll be able to breakdown your project by trade and we will help you with writing down the required scope of work for each trade so that you have a keen understanding of what needs to be done, as a result of your home examination you’ll be able to control the costs and quality of work. You have now become a General Contractor. Read more on how a Home Examination helped a customer.

KL Home Inspection Services brings a caring attitude to home buyers, you can contact Brian 24/7 365 if you have a home repair issue that you cannot resolve.

With the home improvement course, a caring attitude, and even assistance with remodeling and planning for construction hiring (home examination), KL Home Inspection Services will be the best decision you ever make for your home.
