Our Mission is to Provide Detailed, Accurate Information

For most of us, a home is our greatest financial investment.   A home inspection performed by a qualified, professional home inspector and engineer is not to be seen as a luxury; but should be viewed as a neccesity.  With the ever increasing costs of repairs and maintenance, you need to know the true condition of your perspective home! At Alltech, our goal is to give you, our client, the detailed inspection information you need to make an informed investment decision regarding your home or perspective home. Our complete home inspection services empower you with the knowledge you need at this crucial time.

At Alltech, we want our clients to be present during the home inspection and we encourage you, or your representative, to walk with the inspector while the home inspection is being performed. We strongly encourage you to ask questions of the inspector during the home inspection. We believe a thorough home inspection can only be provided when you, the client, completely understand the report and condition of the home. We do not use checklist reporting or canned software. Your home inspection report is a full written report, compiled in our offices, then revised and approved by your home inspector. Did you know that the Pennsylvania State Inspection Laws stipulate that your home inspection report is to be a written report as outlined under section 7508 of SB 1032? Be sure you are getting the most detailed and clear information from your home inspection. Be sure you are receiving a full, written report.

Your home inspector will take the time at the end of the home inspection to review the inspection findings and answer any additional questions you may have. As an engineer, our lead inspector is uniquely qualified to answer questions that other home inspectors are not equipped to answer. Our home inspectors are always available for phone follow-ups after the home inspection is completed; whether the next day or the next year, your inspector will be available to answer any questions. Please consider Alltech and your home inspector as a resource for your home maintenace questions.

Alltech provides a quarterly newsletter with the latest news for homeowners regarding maintenace of their homes, notice of product recalls of many common items found in the home, and your quarterly check sheet.
