Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a home inspection? What is a home inspection? We’re here to walk you through every step, so you can feel confident about your investments.
What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.
Right, but what does that mean? It means we inspect what we can see for proper operating standards. Was the roof installed with methods and materials deemed standard? Or is it missing vital components? Is there proper insulation? Does the HVAC work as intended?
The home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and does not predict future conditions.
A home inspections will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.
At MACH Inspections, we include thermal imaging with every inspection, to potentially catch hidden defects, and save you costly repairs.What To Expect
Do you check everything?
Home inspections are essentially a “bill of health” for a home. We inspect the systems and components that make up a house, from the roof system, structural components, heating systems, plumbing system,electrical systems, etc.
Keep in mind, we only check what’s visible and readily accessible.See “What We Check”
What’s not included?
An inspection is not technically exhaustive. We can’t identify concealed or latent defects. Our inspections do not included items that are not permanently installed (such as RVs, boats, out-buildings, pools, etc.)
If a system or component is not readily accessible, or is in an unsafe area, an inspector is not required to determine its condition. We will try our hardest to inspect everything that is in our scope, but the safety of our personel is of the utmost importance. We love to crawl around crawl spaces, but sometimes they’re simply unsafe or inaccessible.

Integrity and Honesty
Let us put you at ease as you we walk you through the inspection. Feel free to ask questions, we love it when clients are curious, and it’s our mission to make sure you feel informed before making a decision to buy a home. We’re not only inspectors, but educators as well.
To give you the fastest turn around, we utilize modern inspection writing software designed for home inspections. This software allows us to upload and store on the cloud, giving you access to your reports any time, any place. This also aides us in our attempt to be a bit greener, by utilizing more modern technology rather than reams and reams of paper.
Safety is of the utmost importance to us here at MACH Inspections. Whether it’s the safety of our inspectors, or the safety of the house, we take the necessary precautions to assure the client that we’re looking out for not only you, but ourselves. From ladder safety and respirators, to simply wearing booties, we want you to know that we care.
In depth photos
Your report is going to contain a lot of photos. Because of this, we make sure to utilize quality digital cameras, infrared cameras, and any other utility at our disposal. We want you to have a clear picture of the home we’re inspecting, and we’ll use whatever means necessary to do so for you.
As an additional measure to assure you that you’re making a good purchase on your home, we include thermal imaging with every inspection. Thermal imaging allows us to see some hidden moisture, improper HVAC connections, and a range of other issues that would otherwise go unnoticed. This will save you costly repairs in the future, and allow you to know that much more before going ahead with a purchase.
Buying a house can be a stressful time for many, as can selling a house. At MACH Inspections, we want you to feel at ease knowing that we plan to take great care of your potential new house, or from a sellers perspective, your current house. We keep a clean work space, because we know that our home is our castle, and we wouldn’t want anyone else tracking dirt through our own homes. So why would we do that to anyone else’s home?
