Highland Park home inspection helps explain the pros and cons of a home inspection. Generally, you are told you need a home inspection but not why you need it. I’m going to tell you why- the cons first. The biggest con for not getting a home inspection is the cost of the services. The other con is the time it takes.
The Highland Park home inspection was a scale of why and why not. The why not was defined by the costs of the services? The costs of a standard home inspection with a radon measurement and termite inspection was $695.00. The fees for the services paid themselves of f very quickly at the Highland Park home inspection.
The “why” portion of the scale explained itself very fast. When I went on the roof, I saw that the asphalt shingles were already cracking and curling and were on their way out. Replacement of the roof was estimated to be at least $7200.00. There were 2 layers of shingles on the roof and a 3rd layer would not be permitted by code. That means a total tear off of all the shingles would be warranted. The roof replacement cost of $7200.00 would be required. The next item I deemed to be repaired was the severe cracking in the asphalt driveway. These two items were approx. $9000.00.
