We are extremely impressed with the consistently excellent customer service we've received from Scott Home Inspection. Todd and his associate were absolutely fantastic. They were thorough, friendly, and obviously experts in their field. As first time home buyers, we must have asked Todd a million and a half questions, which he always answered in easily understandable detail. It's nice to work with a real estate/construction professional who can explain important details in a way that someone with no construction experience can understand. We're very happy we chose to work with your company!

Absolutely EXCELLENT! I can't tell you how many inspectors I called before deciding on Scott Home. Some of the other places that I called couldn't even tell me how long they were in business for, or what all they did in an inspection (clearly, bad staff). Some, I did speak to the owner of the business and some just seemed shady, like, asking for the complete address before disclosing a price.Scott Home Inspection answered ALL my questions, including giving me a base price and then offering add-ons, like, Radon Testing, Infrared Testing for water leaks, etc.They were thorough and honest, punctual and confident! I will always use them for any properties we buy!

Brett Jones came out to our house to do an inspection for us just before we undertook some major home improvement projects. It was extremely helpful to understand some issues that we need to have our contractors address, as well as others that we were not aware of. He did an extremely thorough inspection with immediate written report. I would highly recommend this company for home inspection, and feel much more confident that our improvement projects will go well.

We have some experience with inspectors as both buyer and seller and these guys are the best. Luke was very thorough, spending hours with the house and was equally attentive to us and our questions. Even tried to help after hours. A++

My inspector, Joe, was very professional and courteous. His inspection was thorough, and found several items, that needed attention. I received many maintenance tips to avoid future problems. I would absolutely use this company in the future.

We had a great experience with Joe during our inspection. He was friendly, honest, and equally met our enthusiasm. We added on a sewer scope three days after the initial inspection, and the inspector who performed that was able to follow up with us on the implications of the scope, which helped inform our next steps in the home-buying process. I'm glad we went with Scott Home Inspection!

Oh wow- go nowhere else for your home inspection! The Scott team applied unasked for discounts where they could, had a real pro come and stay long past his expected time (for the same price), answered emails past business hours, and provided an extremely thorough report than any layman would understand. Super impressed!

Very thorough, very helpful report, and very quick turnaround from start to finish. They really seem to know what they're doing and they run a smooth business. Very happy with their energy audit service and we will use them again to follow up and see how our efficiency improves after we implement their advice.

Great company to work with. Lots of follow thru and Joe our inspector was right on time and very knowledgeable. The fact that they will also help you diagnose a problem should there be one is a great plus that not all companies will offer. Highly recommend this company.

I had to call an reschedule my appointment to accommodate the seller and they were extremely flexible with cancelling and changing the time. The inspector was on time, thorough, and walked me through the entire process. He also went through his assessment prior to publishing the report as well. Good experience all around.

We were impressed how thorough Dave was with the inspection, and he provided us with a wonderfully detailed report at the end, letting us know where to find important items in our new house, and some tips for maintenance. We have a new build, and he found a few things that had been missed in the build process. Great investment!

I recently sold my home in the Centennial, CO area. The buyer of my home hired Scott Home Inspection to conduct a review, with Dave Spielman serving as the inspector. I thought they did a thorough job -- so much so that when I went under contract to buy another home a few months later, I hired Scott Home Inspection and specifically requested Dave Spielman to serve as the inspector. The company is exceedingly professional and reliable. And in particular, Dave again did an outstanding job and helped explain a number of items in the home I was seeking to purchase. He remained longer than the allotted time and went out of his way to highlight potential issues and to provide an explanation and a recommendation. I appreciated the thoroughness of the 65-page report to follow -- but I also appreciated Dave's rapport and on-site conversational review of the overall inspection. It is the type of intangible that gives the consumer confidence and ensures long-term business success. Highest recommendation.

I was pleased in every interaction I had with Scott Home Inspection. Ann called me ahead of time to discuss the inspection and talk over any areas to pay particular attention to. Luke was on-time, professional, thorough, and extremely knowledgeable. He patiently answered all my questions. I liked that all services and fees were posted right on the website. My report was electronically accessible and near-immediately available after the inspection. Would definitely use this company again.

Everyone I interacted with at Scott Home Inspection was terrific. From scheduling to inspection and even through follow-up questions, I was always treated with kindness and professionalism. Dave did our inspection, and he was fabulous. Very thorough in explaining his findings and personable at the same time. I really learned a lot about the house (and lot of other little nuggets in general). The written report is very detailed and easy to follow. We opted for the Gold Package and definitely got our money's worth. I highly recommend Scott to anyone in need of a home inspection!

Scott Inspection is professional, responsive and provide very complete inspection services. I have used Scott for an energy efficiency audit, inspection prior to purchasing a new home and an inspection for a City of Boulder rental license. In each case, the service was top notch.

I've used Scott Home Inspection on 3 different homes in the last 2 years. Every time they are respectful, thorough and helpful with explaining details. Their prices are excellent, and the last time I used them, Dave helped identify an oversight in a new-build home that saved us more than double the cost of the inspection by having the builder correct it immediately!

Our Inspector was Dave Spielman. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk with and learn from. We were very pleased with his report and timely filing of the report. The report helped us gain consideration from the sellers on items Dave identified. The home he inspected was in Loveland, CO.The office staff at Scott Home Inspection was also very professional and on top of all the notifications which needed to be made. The inspection came off without a hitch. In Colorado it is not a requirement to be certified to be a Home Inspector but the Scott inspectors are certified with national certifications and it showed during the inspection and in the quality of the report.

Scott inspections was the first home inspector I've ever used that made me feel like I couldn't have done as good a job myself. Brett was very thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly. Excellent photographic documentation throughout (including infrared), and a summarized list of recommended items to address. In addition, the entire staff at Scott goes above and beyond. First of all, in this hot housing market, closing timelines are very tight, requiring inspection almost immediately after contract. Sellers simply won't accept a contract asking for a week or two until the objection deadline. Scott allowed me reserve a spot on their schedule more than once before my contract had been accepted (on multiple homes), and then they would follow up a day later to see if my contract had been accepted. On this final, successful contract, I called them on Monday (before contract acceptance), contract was accepted on Tuesday, they dropped off a radon detector on Wednesday, did inspection Thursday, and went back to retrieve the radon detector on Friday -- the inspection objection deadline! Super effort by their team!

Check out what some of our inspection clients are saying about Scott Home Inspection!

We have never had a more professional, thorough, detail-oriented, friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, and just plain AWESOME home inspection. Seriously, the home we wanted to purchase had some issues/concerns for us. Scott Home Inspection put all of our concerns at ease. The inspector gave us the information needed to make an informed and educated decision. I highly recommend their services for any home purchase.
Matt, Boulder CO
A HUGE thank you to Scott Home Inspection for excellent service! To start, Scott Home Inspection was able to get my pre-purchase inspection quickly scheduled within a couple of business days of my phone call. The home inspector, Luke, was prompt and extremely knowledgeable. Luke was very thorough and took the time to explain what he was examining (and why) and throughout the process he answered all of my questions. Luke was able to identify numerous issues that I would not have otherwise noticed myself prior to my final home walkthrough thus saving me potentially thousands of dollars. I was amazed that the detailed inspection report was delivered to my email the same day as the inspection! My pre-purchase inspection was worth every cent and I highly recommend Scott Home Inspection to perform a pre-purchase inspection to all new home buyers.
Jeremy, Brighton CO

Dave with Scott Home Inspection came out to conduct a home inspection for a house we are considering for purchase.  His inspection was thorough, professional, and informative. His knowledge of a wide variety of areas, his attention to detail, and his enthusiasm for his profession is very impressive. He represented your company in a professional manner. We have much confidence in his report and in your company.  Purchasing a home is a tremendous financial obligation and an emotional journey. Scott Home Inspection provides a service allowing all parties to feel more confident in their decisions.

Harry and Robin, Loveland CO
We were very impressed with Scott Home Inspection from the moment we found their website using a Google search. We were able to review their services, pricing and schedule our home inspection online with just a few clicks of the mouse. We did not expect to get the home inspection report that same afternoon especially with all the detailed information and photos provided. I will certainly tell others about our experience with your company and will recommend you to all my friends. Thanks again!
Lynn and Mike, Berthoud CO
I was really impressed with the level of service from Scott Home Inspection. The website was informative and easy to use, the appointment set up was a breeze, and the inspection itself was thorough and very professional. The inspector was really a pleasure to work with. He explained everything in detail and took the time to answer any and all questions we had. I will definitely be recommending Scott Home Inspection and using the company again in the future!!
Diane, Denver CO
We just completed a home inspection with Dave Spielman – actually it’s the third one we’ve done with Dave – and we wanted to share with you that we think he is great. He does a wonderful job explaining his findings. He also helps put the information into perspective, so that you can better prioritize any issues that may need to be addressed. He’s also willing to answer questions. At the end of the process, you feel exceptionally well informed to make decisions about your property. If ever we require a home inspection again, you can be sure we will ask for Dave.

One of the most common questions we get from our customers is: What exactly is included in a home inspection.

Home Inspection Checklist 2017-11-30T17:56:44-07:00

Buying a house is a big investment and because of that, we need to make sure we get your home inspection right. But a house has many different facets, so we break down our inspections into an organized home inspection checklist. No matter what type of house, how old it is, or where it is built, our inspectors follow a specific procedure in order to be extremely thorough and maximize the time spent at the inspection.

At Scott Home Inspection, we use a mobile inspection software on site that contains this checklist and we add our findings under each category. As you can see in the graphic above, the sum of all these categories should cover every piece of an average home. There are a few less common sections that are not part of the graphic, but we wanted to be as general as possible. Let’s take a deeper look into each piece.  Check out our Infographic on the Home Inspection Checklist.
