OKC Home Inspectors – Ask Us!

How long have you been performing home inspections?
OIS has been performing full home inspections for over 20 years.

Do you perform home inspections on a full time of part time basis?
Many inspection companies perform inspections only on a part time basis for a low fee, with much less experience and credentials. OIS has been performing home inspections on a full time basis for over 20 years.

How long will it take to perform the inspection and how soon will I recieve the report from you?
A home inspection generally takes one to two hours depending on the size of the home. Usually two inspectors are provided for every OIS inspection. This allows for a more thorough inspection. OIS provides a typed report informing the buyer of repairs and cost opinions. This report is delivered to the buyer and or realtor the next day. (The report will not be sent to the realtor, if any is involved, without permission from the client.) As a service to the buyer a separate page of suggestions and maintenance items with cost opinions is provided.

Do I need to be present when the inspection is performed?
It is preferable that the buyer be present. The finding are explained to the buyer at the end of the inspection. This gives the buyer another opportunity to look at the property they are buying and ask the inspectors questions about the property or report.

Will the Inspector find everything that is wrong with the property?
The purpose of a home inspection is to identify and disclose visually observable major deficiencies of the inspected systems that are found at the time of the inspection. No inspector(s) can find every fault with a property within the short time frame of a general home inspection. The Oklahoma Inspection Service inspector(s) are professionals and will inspect every property with the intent of finding as many defects as possible. These defects are listed on a ten page field report. A two to three page report of defects and repair cost opinions is typed and submitted to the customer the next day. Permission is needed from the client to send, to the realtors involved, if any, a copy of the report.
