Home Inspection Overview

contact miller building inspections


Whether you’re buying or selling, getting a third party home inspection is one of the best decisions you can make. During the inspection, our top focus is to ensure the safety of the home. But we don’t stop there, we also make sure all of the mechanical systems are functioning properly and in some cases, even discuss routine maintenance that may have been overlooked. When you consider all of that, it’s easy to see how you can recoup the few hundred dollars you’ll spend. (Need to firm that number up a bit? Just contact Robert Miller @ 309-825-4362 and tell him about your property. Once he knows a bit more, he will be happy to give you an estimate on your particular home!)

As we like to say here at Miller Building Inspections, knowledge is power. So it comes as no surprise that during the home inspection process, it’s our goal to provide you with the information you need to make a sound and informed decision.

Due to the thorough nature of our inspections, you should plan for the process to take 2-3 hours. While many home inspection companies require your presence throughout the entire process, at Miller Building Inspections, we know how busy you are. While you’re welcome to come for the duration, we find that the best use of your time is to meet with us near the end the inspection. That way you aren’t just standing around waiting on us but you don’t miss the opportunity to discuss our findings and any concerns in person.

At the end of the home inspection, you’ll know exactly where you stand. Our fee also includes a formal written report complete with pictures, recommendations and narrative within 24 hours. But our service to you doesn’t end after your inspection. Our clients have full access to us via telephone for one year after inspection at no additional charge.
