Home inspection scheduling is more an art than a science.
Generally we plan on around 4 hours for a single family home in Key West. Sometimes it can take a bit less, or a bit more depending upon what we find.
For instance if there is a crawlspace, and we find water damage, we need to try to describe not only the damage found, but its source.
Sometimes this is obvious like a leaky toilet or sink drain. Sometimes it’s not so easy as is the case when a roof failure has allowed water to run inside a wall. This takes a bit more investigation to connect all the dots.
This is why we always try to get our clients to think of a home as a collective of many connected ‘systems’ that all work together.
