You would never buy a car without test driving it first. You check everything from the engine to the radio before driving off the lot. The same care, if not more, should be taken when considering buying a home. You’ve heard it a million times that purchasing real estate will be one of the largest investments you will ever make. Finding the right company to advise you about the physical condition of your potential home is imperative.
In the state of Colorado property inspectors are not currently required to be licensed. By no means should that frighten you. There are plenty of qualified professionals performing home inspections everyday. However, if you have not done your research you could hire someone that could cost you thousands of dollars down the road.
In my search for outstanding inspection companies I was introduced to HIE Consulting Engineers. Founded in 1965, they have been serving the Greater Denver Metro Area for over fifty years. With more than 50,000 property inspections under their belt, they are my preferred vendor when clients are looking for referrals. Their engineers are able to provide complete inspections, including the structural components, setting them apart because, by law, only licensed engineers are permitted to evaluate the structural elements of a building.
Whatever your inspection or engineering needs may be HIE can help. Please learn more about their services here.
