Residential Inspections & Environmental Testing
Chester County Home Inspections is in business to arm buyers and sellers with information that will equip them to make an informed decision. Too many home buyers base their decision solely on emotion. They fall in love with a house and move forward without obtaining an unbiased assessment. To order your buyer or seller inspection, schedule online now, or call (484) 212-1600.
Importance of Buyer & Seller Home Inspections
When searching for a new residence, a buyer home inspection, should be at the top of the priority list before finalizing any agreements. In the age where subdivisions seem to spring to life almost overnight, shoddy workmanship abounds. At Chester County Home Inspections, we inspect approximately 100 items in every house, making sure that work has been done correctly and all systems and appliances are functioning as they should be. Buyers then have a realistic evaluation of the home and can negotiate for price reductions and/or repairs.
For sellers, a pre-listing inspection highlights the renovations you need to make prior to listing the house. Once the repairs have been professionally remediated, call us back for a free re-inspection, and if the work is done correctly, we’ll give you a clean report that you can use to market your home. Get top dollar for your listing, and avoid the stress of unpleasant surprises that could derail a sale or cause you to take costly price reductions.

Kim B., Chester Springs
“I can’t say enough about the thorough services provided by Chester County Home Inspections. Edwin called in advance, arrived promptly and didn’t seem to mind the disarray. Every aspect from roof to plumbing to electric, heating, and AC were reviewed.
He had a device for detecting heat loss and other state of the art technologies. The resulting report was impressive and easy to follow. The pictures provided great clarity to the issues identified. The whole process was easy and highly informative!”
Chris & Jenn, Phoenixville
“My wife and I are not very handy people. We put a lot of faith into our inspector. Edwin was able to not only point out all the areas that were concerns but also help to advise us with possible solutions. His thorough inspection involved everything under the roof and more. All valves were turned, switches flipped, and appliances run. The whole inspection took about 2 hours and we couldn’t have been happier! I highly recommend Edwin, and trust his advice on all home topics.”
“Ed’s report is beautiful. Oh my gosh, it’s wonderful, so informative and the pictures are great! Ed was professional and courteous, listened to all of my questions and concerns and gave me detailed answers that I could understand.
I completed the purchase with confidence, knowing what I get myself into. Thank you again!”
