Home Inspections FAQ

Below you will get answers to the most Home Inspection FAQ’s that we receive.  If you do not find the answer, the Email Us, or call 701-306-0472.

On average, Ike will spend 3 hours observing and taking pictures for the report.  A home that has more defects, will take longer.  Most other inspectors spend a maximum of 1 hour on a full home inspection.

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, we are no longer allowing anyone to attend the inspection.  We will be offering a private  recording of the inspection.

Ike does not deliver the report on-site.  You will receive it within 24 hours of inspection, via web link.  If you would like a printed copy, we will send one to you via mail for an additional $10.00.

Yes we do.  Paxton Inspection Services has the required E/O Insurance by the State of North Dakota, along with General Liability Insurance.

No we do not.  Ike Paxton, CPI is bound by Ethical Standards of InterNACHI which do not allow him to perform any repairs on any properties he inspects.  This sets him above the rest of inspectors, most inspectors will perform repairs on defects they find, which calls into question their honesty.

As of right now, we currently do not.  We do however carry the best Guarantee not offered by several inspectors in the Fargo/Moorhead area…Our Guarantee is that We’ll Buy Your Home if we missed anything that is in our SOP.  This guarantee is backed by InterNACHI.

As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.  We are not the most expensive, but not the cheapest.  Most inspectors look around at most for 45 mins to an hour.  Ike spends a minimum of 3 hrs observing the condition of the property.  He typically shows up 1/2 hour before anyone arrives and starts observing the exterior.   Ike Paxton has the qualifications, and years of knowledge that make him a great inspector.  He knows you will be impressed!
