Why Do I need a Home Inspection?

A certified home inspection is a very important step in the real estate transaction.  By having the house inspected, you gain knowledge on the condition of your soon to be new home.  

With this knowledge, you can make a smart financial decision of whether to purchase the home, or find a new house to purchase.

If you do not have an inspection, you open yourself to major financial risks and major headaches.  

Why Use Paxton Inspections?

Paxton Inspection Services promises to provide you more than just an inspection.  Our home inspector offers valuable advice on your dream home, an easy to read report, along with the industry’s Best Guarantee.  

We offer 3 different home inspection packages.  The Basic is just a home inspection with report.  Enhanced Inspection Package adds Thermal Imaging.  Finally, the Ultimate Inspection adds Radon and Mold/Indoor Air Quality Testing.  The Ultimate package gives you the best bang for your buck.  You choose what you want!
