The short answer is “no” but only because this is not a pass/fail test we are performing.
No home is perfect and most issues discovered are manageable. SiteLogics inspection process includes giving you the information needed to move forward and correct any discovered problems. If you’ve ever heard that a home failed inspection, in reality it only failed one person’s expectations or willingness to correct specific issues discovered during the home inspection.
When items noted on your inspection report are safety hazards or costly to repairs, the best part is you took the first important step in hiring a certified home inspector to discover these issues and help you navigate through them. Now your next most important step is to get options from a specialist. To obtain options and costs for repairs, and depending on the system in need of correction, SiteLogic always recommends you contact a licensed electrician, roofer, plumber, HVAC technician, structural engineer, or general contractor. Your inspector is trained to discover defects and provide quality advice, but cannot provide quotes or repairs.
Everyone has their own limits and budgets. At least discussing your options with a specialist will help you make the right decision in how to move forward and many times will surprise you on how manageable it might be. Before you assume your home “failed inspection” discuss with your inspector and real estate agent if you should contact a specialist.
