ACM Home Inspection Check List Image - Kansas City Home InspectionDuring the inspection, ACM Home Inspection will take the time to explain why we are identifying the items that we are, and let you know why fixing them is important, for your health and the health of your home. We provide literature at every inspection, for you to keep, that provides maintenance tips and additional explanations of what we check and how to keep your house in tip-top shape. When we tell you that you should maintain the caulk lines around windows and doors we will also explain why. When we tell you there are exposed nail heads on the roof we will let you know that not sealing them may lead to water penetration and excessive moisture in the attic or staining on the ceilings. When we tell you there is restricted ventilation in the attic we also let you know that this could lead to mold and poor air quality in your home.
We understand there are a lot of first-time homebuyers in the Kansas City market and love to get questions. We care about your decision, there is never a dumb question, and we will take the time for you to understand, not just get it done. Even experienced home buyers and investors could use advice and our expertise to help them make decisions. People that are in the real estate business know a lot about the home buying process but have other things to do than spend all day every day looking at houses and training to get better at it. Builders spend all day building and making sure houses are code compliant. We inspect the home as a package and make sure all of the components actually operate and function as intended as a system.
