  • Why should I order a home inspection?
    Whether you want to buy a house, prepare your home for sale or are simply living in one, ordering a home inspection is the best way to learn about the condition of the house. A typical home inspection will provide you with important information of major systems of your home, including your HVAC systems, the stability of the house’s structure, and the condition of the components of the house.
  • Can the LiteHouse Inspect team provide estimates for repairs?
    Since our inspectors are not contractors actively working in construction or home repairs, having knowledge of current pricing for specific improvements is not easily determined. Because of this, our home inspectors will refer you to speak with a qualified contractor for the area of question.
  • What qualifications do LiteHouse Inspect inspectors have?
    All of our inspectors carry a current and valid license from the State of Ohio Division of Real Estate & Professional Licensing. In addition to that, we all hold licenses and training from; Ohio Department of Heath, Ohio Department of Agriculture and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). We also adhere to a annual continuing education requirement that exceeds that of the typical state license.
  • Does LiteHouse Inspect provide any warranties?
    Yes! We provide you with a voluntary 30 day home warranty at no additional cost to you. This warranty starts when you sign up for it. (Hint: wait until you close!). You will have the option to continue the warranty for an additional fee, at the end of the 30 days, or stop the program.
  • Are there any special benefits with ordering a LiteHouse inspection?
    Yes, we provide a Wood Destroying Insect (Termite) at no additional charge for every home inspection. Our inspectors also utilize thermal imaging, as needed, to help identify defects in our standard home inspection. Every client has access to a 30 day home warranty at no additional cost.
  • When should I order the home inspection?
    The sooner you can order an inspection, the better. Usually, a due diligence clause is written in the contract that gives you the right to withdraw from the deal, or negotiate terms, in case the inspection report reveals significant items. If your contract doesn't have that clause, you should talk to your real estate agent about it and order the inspection as soon as you get the right to do that.
  • How much does a standard home inspection cost?
    The fees for a home inspection varies based on size and age of the home, as well as other factors. At LiteHouse Inspect, we believe in transparent pricing and you can find the list of fees on our Inspection Packages page. If you are unsure where your property falls, please give us a call at 513-800-0347 to discuss.
  • What does a home inspection report include?
    A home inspection report typically includes a detailed description of the home's condition, including any defects or deficiencies that were found during the inspection. The report may also include recommendations for repairs or improvements.
  • Does LiteHouse Inspect also perform repairs?
    No, it's generally not recommended for a home inspector to also perform repairs on a home they have inspected. This can create a conflict of interest and compromise the objectivity of the inspection report. Integrity is a key value for LiteHouse Inspect.
  • Should I attend the home inspection?
    Yes. At LiteHouse Inspect, we recommend all our clients to attend the home inspection so that they can ask any questions they have directly to our inspector during the home inspection. This way you will be able to understand the inspection process and the extent of damages and defects that your house may have. Since our inspections often take up to 3 1/2 hours, many of our clients choose to come later, during that time, to avoid waiting for so long.
  • Do newly constructed homes need inspections?
    We definitely recommend them. Even though they are recently built, many new houses also have hidden structural and compositional damages that can cause serious problems for you in the future. Many times, our inspectors find defects in the electrical system, plumbing system, and HVAC systems that can be repaired before the builder or warranty is complete.
  • Why should I get an inspection on a home I am selling?
    Sellers often order an inspection before placing their house on the market. Such a service is called a pre­listing home inspection or getting it LiteHouse Ready. Pre­listing inspections allow the seller to address any issues in the house prior to sale and help the sale proceed smoothly.
  • What other services would be important with my inspection?
    We already include the termite inspection with every home inspection we perform. We strongly encourage every client to also consider having the home tested for radon and have the sewer line inspected.
  • I have more questions. What should I do?
    We are happy to assist you over the phone or text. Please call or send a message to 513-800-0347 and we'll get back to you right away.
