Troy Forbes
Certified Home Inspector
When I perform a Minneapolis, Minnesota home inspection, I spend hours educating myself about every possible aspect that a home buyer may need to know so I can pass that information onto you, so you are as knowledgeable about the house as I am. Finding the things that may be of concern is just the first step. Then, taking the time and being able to explain those concerns, why they happened, and what can be done to correct the problem, is the next step in getting you the information you need to feel confident moving ahead. This is why so many of my clients refer theirs friends and family to Guardian Inspection Services LLC to inspect their perspective home. My commitment to you is that my inspections, reports, and the quality of education you receive about your future home, are second to none.

I will take a very in-depth, unbiased, experienced and professional look at your dream home to make sure you have a clear picture as to its condition. If there are issues that need addressing, I want you to be aware their significance. I will also present any issues with balance and in a manner that makes sense to the you. I will not tell you whether to buy or not buy the home. I am here to make sure you understand the condition of the home. In addition, I will give you helpful maintenance tips and general operating instructions.

I begin to gather information the minute we answer the phone. First I will listen to you and answer any questions you may have. I will then ask questions about your future home, to determine if you have any specific areas of concern. I will also describe the inspection process. At that point, I are able to give you a price for the inspection and schedule a date and time, (usually within 48 hours of your call). We will then immediately contact the agent regarding access to the home.

I will arrive at the home 3-4 hours prior to the you. This allows the me the opportunity to cover an in-depth inspection without distractions which may cause items to be missed. It also prevents the client from being required to spend 3-4 hours at the home. I will then perform a complete walk through with you providing information and training about the home, dicuss and review any concerns found, and print a report,

At the completion of the walk-through, the client will have a printed preliminary deficiency report (or emailed) covering possibly hundreds points. The final report, that will be emailed to you within 24 hours, will include details regarding each system of the home as well as written comments.

I offer a detailed inspection, a great narrative inspection report with photos, repair and maintenance procedure and suggestions, approximate repair cost estimates when possible, and a very informative walk through with you, room by room, inside and out, to explain the concerns and workings of the home.

I look forward to helping you through this process.
