If the Truth Is What You’re After

For families who have never had the pleasure of buying a home, it’s tough to predict just what you’ll do when the moment comes to make a decision. Leading up to a transaction, the individual or agency listing a property generally does a good job of communicating what an investment will cost at the time of closing—but often, unanticipated expenses can start stacking up for new homeowners.

At Paul Maxwell Inspections, our professional home inspections provide a detailed and unbiased analysis of a property’s condition. Our goal is to reveal the truth about a home’s repair and maintenance needs so that you know what additional costs to expect before committing to a prospective investment.

A Word of Caution

While many home inspectors claim to be certified through the State of Georgia, there is actually no official state licensing program for home inspectors. People are also commonly misled by home inspectors who boast an ICC membership—but the fact is, anyone can pay the yearly dues to become an uncertified ICC member.

How can you protect your interests as a prospective client?

IRC 1 and 2 Certification

IRC 1 & 2 CERTIFIED

Same-Day Inspection Reports Featuring the CRL™

Once a home inspection is finalized, you won’t have to wait long to receive the results. We’ll deliver our convenient digital inspection report on the same day we evaluate your prospective home. In addition to providing detailed explanations of each inspected component, we select several photographs of the property to include with relevant findings—giving you a visual guide for why we may have diagnosed a component as defective or otherwise unsafe. Upon receiving your report, you’ll also be provided access to the cutting-edge Create Request List™ (CRL)™ feature by HomeGauge.

The Create Request List™ (CRL)™

  • This easy-to-use feature makes it possible for our clients to customize a project and repair request list by transferring over any defective items from an inspection report
  • When you need to work on your request list, you’ll be able to no matter where you are—the CRL™ can be accessed from virtually any device with an internet connection
  • Your real estate agent can include your completed request list with his or her own standard repair addendum, making it easy and convenient to relay your terms to the seller of the home
