Thank you for choosing Canvas Home Inspections, LLC to perform your home inspection!
Canvas Home Inspections, LLC strives to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with the Standards of Practice as set forth by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of the home. We are required to point out issues listed in the SOP, give the location and make a recommendation.
This inspection is not technically exhaustive. It is possible that if a specialist (ex: an HVAC, Electrician, or Plumber) checks the home they would find things with their depth of knowledge in their area and with their specialty tools that we didn't find during our inspection. We are generalists with broad knowledge of all home systems, not specialists with deep knowledge of one system.
Be aware that all homes require regular maintenance to help ensure safety, longevity and proper operation of its components. Expect regular monthly maintenance costs as part of home ownership.
