Our Inspection Process

Using the latest tools and technology we will thoroughly inspect your home inside and out, from the foundation to the roof and everything in between.  A complete inspection by Top Tier provides you with an unbiased and objective evaluation of your homes condition.  Our certified and professional inspectors will not only point out the major and minor flaws in the home, but we will provide you with suggestions on how to improve or fix any current issues.

Our Reporting Process

Although our final reports give detailed explanations of all our findings with many high resolution digital pictures, we encourage you to accompany your inspector throughout the inspection so you can gain a better understanding of the home in its entirety.  This will also provide you with an opportunity to ask your inspector any and all questions you might have throughout the process.  After the inspection, there will also be an in-person review which will cover all the findings and discoveries.  Later that evening, you will receive an easy to understand, narrative style report, explaining all findings and discoveries. All reports include multiple pictures of all issues as well as a summary report.
