Questions to Ask During a Home Inspection

First things first, it is important to know what questions to ask during a home inspection. Oftentimes, home inspections are complex. Sometimes it is best to ask questions during the home inspection itself in order to gain more clarity. Knowing what questions to ask the home inspector can be helpful. Some important questions to ask during a home inspection include:

  • – What questions do you (the home inspector) have?
  • – What is the condition of the roof?
  • – How’s the electrical?
  • – Is the home structurally sound?
  • – How’s drainage around the exterior of the home?

Questions to Ask After the Inspection is Over

Of course, there are also some important questions to ask after the inspection is over. If you trust your home inspection to The BrickKicker team, our staff remains available well after your home inspection is completed to answer any questions that may arise. Questions to ask after the inspection is over include:

  • – What exactly did you look for?
  • – Did you find any problems?
  • – How big of a problem did you find?
  • – Is an expert needed to resolve the problem?
  • – What needs to be fixed prior to living in the home?

The BrickKicker COVID-19 Response 

The outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted businesses and markets all across the globe.

At The BrickKicker, our reputation has continued to stand tall during these times of uncertainty just as it has over the last 30 years. We continue to strive for highest regards to transparency and reliability, ensuring our customers will continue to count on us. With that, it is important for us to share how we are managing our business during these uncertain times.

First and foremost, we will continue to be laser focused on monitoring all WHO, CDC & DOC broadcasts to a) guarantee The BrickKicker is contributing to keeping our community safe & healthy and b) to take advantage of additional resources available to offer comfort to our employees and clients alike.

Our team at The BrickKicker will remain committed to delivering full operational support throughout the weeks and months ahead. For the continued safety of all our employees and staff, we are still asking to keep the number of those attending the inspection to a bare minimum, if any at all. Our inspectors are equipped with SentriLock access (with proper agent approval) and take plenty of photos during the inspection to produce a very detailed report. Oh, and no need need to be a worry of missing valuable information or stress over deadlines, our team is great about getting the reports out within 24 hours or often the same day.

Each inspector will be disinfecting all tools, self and vehicles after each inspection and may even wear gloves and masks on sight. This will help ensure we minimize the spread of this disease as much as possible.

In addition, our staff is fully available as if we never shut down, via phone or website to answer any questions that come up once reviewing the inspection report. The inspection is often an educational session, we must not lose sight of this. To make things as efficient and safe as possible, our inspection agreement and payment can be made electronically, via the confirmation email that went out upon booking.

We wish to remind our clients that we have a full service team supporting all your needs and it is the strength of our team that will allow us to continue to maintain our high service levels in the months ahead.

In fact, The BrickKicker isn’t stopping here to service our customers during this difficult time. We have expanded our availability and will assist with pricing concerns as they arise in order to keep services going. 

Despite taking all precautions, we strongly recommend our clients to contact us in regards to changing inspection dates in the short term, and to provide us with any questions they have up front so that we can ensure all gets answered by the time the report is delivered.

Finally, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or call with any requests or questions you may have.

Thank you,
