Does the home have defects?

We'd all like to buy the perfect home. Unfortunately, it doesn't exist. Even new homes have defects. That's why it's important to have any home you buy inspected by a licensed architect or professional engineer qualified professionals-even if it's brand new.

You'll undoubtedly discover defects during your inspections.  In fact, you should hope that any significant defects are uncovered before you formal agree to purchase the home. It's far worse to be surprised after closing by unanticipated repair expenses.

Criterium Tauscher Cronacher Engineers is affiliated with Criterium Engineers , a national organization of professional engineers and architects founded in 1957.  Don't hire an inspector blind without first checking references.

Is a home inspection enough?

Most buyers wouldn't dream of buying a home without having it inspected by a reputable home inspector. But, don't assume that just because you've had the home you're buying inspected by a licensed architect or professional engineer that you're finished with your due diligence investigations.

A home inspection should be viewed as the starting point of your investigations into the condition of the property. You shouldn't buy a home without having one. You also shouldn't assume that a home inspection would give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not to buy a property. The inspection finds the concern and the report will recommend service, maintenance, repairs, replacement or /and further investigation to exposed the extent of the condition and cost.
