Compass Home Inspections L.L.C. ® offers comprehensive home inspection services to San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, and many surrounding areas. We adhere to ASHI’s exceptional Standard of Practice and Code of Ethics, ensuring that our clients walk away from an inspection satisfied with their service and confident in their knowledge of a home’s condition.
One or more of our inspectors will thoroughly evaluate each visible and readily accessible area of your home, compiling their findings into a computer-generated narrative-style report. Our easy-to-read and understand home inspection report will give you the opportunity to have repairs and needed maintenance addressed before the home is shown—whether you opt to have repairs made or simply inform prospective buyers so that there are no misunderstandings that could disrupt successful negotiations.
We will inspect all components as required under ASHI’s Standard of Practice, including:
- Roofing System
- Foundation & Crawl Spaces
- Structural Components
- Exterior (doors, windows, siding)
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
- Garage & Carport
- Driveways & Walkways
- Deck & Patio
- Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
- Heating & Cooling Systems
- Plumbing System
- Electrical System
- Built-in Appliances
Per our Standard of Practice, we inspect roofs. Whenever it is safe and appropriate for our inspectors to do so, we will physically walk the roof during the inspection.*
*We do not walk on certain types of roofs due to the potential for damage (for example, tile and slate). In these cases, we will inspect the roof where visible.
POOLS, SPAS, & HOT TUBS
CA SB 442
Since January 1st of 2018 California State law requires that all home inspectors must inspect specific safety features regarding pools, spas, and hot tubs at private single-family residences (this does not apply to common areas in planned developments). This is not an option and must be done per CA SB 442.
APPLICABLE FEE FOR POOLS, SPAS, & HOT TUBS
This inspection is only of specific safety features as required by the state of California. It is not a standard pool inspection of the pool or its related equipment. When a pool, spa, or hot tub is present, we will charge an additional fee for this required service. If your property has a pool, spa, or hot tub, please indicate that during the booking process so we allot the appropriate time.
The goal of this inspection service is to help prospective home buyers learn more about the home’s existing condition so that any appropriate actions can be taken prior to a final purchase. Most visible and readily accessible components will be inspected in accordance with ASHI’s Standard of Practice. For pools, spas, and hot tubs, the same conditions as a Seller’s Inspection will apply.
