HOMEBUYERS

Knowledge. Confidence. Peace of Mind.

Congratulations on your decision to purchase a home. You're excited because you're imagining your new life in your new home. You're also anxious because you're wondering about the true condition of the home you're planning to buy. A professional inspection conducted by Capitol Inspection Services, LLC will reduce your anxiety and help make the entire home buying process easier and less stressful.  I will help you learn about the home you are buying and give you confidence to address potential concerns.

As your home inspector, I will provide a written report that will include an evaluation of my observations of the house's major systems and outlying areas, including:
