Pre-Purchase Inspection Service

There's nothing quite like the peace of mind of knowing the home you bought is structurally safe and the mechanical systems are sound. After all, your family's safety and happiness are priceless. Wilkerson & Company is dedicated to providing you with valuable information about your home purchase. We thoroughly inspect all visible major components and systems of the subject property to report on general conditions and defects observed. The report will meet or exceed the inspection standards of the Virginia Asbestos, Lead, and Home Inspection Board and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) as required by state law. A great home starts with a good foundation. The systems listed below are included in your inspection service.

HOME BUYER:  A home inspection can give you the peace of mind that the home you have chosen is sound and represents a solid investment. Buying a home is one of the biggest emotional and financial investments you'll ever make, and a home inspection can help ease your concern about your choice and give you confidence to go forward with the purchase.
