Inspect-A-Home, founded in 1985 by Eric Bell, is a full service home inspection company specialising in residential, commercial and industrial property. Over the 30+ years in operation, Inspect-A-Home has established themselves as the leader in the home inspection arena in South Africa and has been instrumental in the development and maturation of the industry.
Our goal is to provide an unparalleled, professional property inspection service – the kind that only our Inspect-A-Home independent franchise operators are trained and equipped to offer. From inception, Inspect-A-Home has used its extensive experience to help clients make informed decisions when buying property, as well as guiding and supporting them when building.
Why choose Inspect A Home?
Inspect A Home does not only report on visible defects, but gives preventative and maintenance advice as well. If there’s something that Inspect A Home knows from experience can be problematic in the future, it will be reported on. Then, if the advice is followed, this may save thousands of rands in future repair costs.
Our reports are completely factual and unbiased and will stand up in a court of law if need be. Beyond the technical expertise and experience a professional Inspect A Home inspector brings, it is important to remember that the inspector remains an impartial third party giving the client the facts and not just what they want to hear.
Inspect A Home is not affiliated with any estate agents or building contractors and is, therefore, completely unbiased in our report and recommendations to clients.
We don’t use checklists. Reports are narrative, often with supporting photographs, that explain the problems/defects, how they can be rectified, and what costs would be involved. This is a totally unique service to Inspect A Home.
The theoretical and practical training our inspectors receive is unparalleled in South Africa. We also have a national support infrastructure of engineers, architects, entomologists, geologists, quantity surveyors and other professionals that we can draw on if the need arises.
Inspect A Home is a member of various home inspection groups and agree with their principles and what they are trying to achieve.
Memberships: International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (USA) (NACHI), the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC).
