Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I choose Westbrook to do my inspection?

A: Brian’s many years of construction experience together with his knowledge of codes and regulatory law gives you a no-nonsense, easily understood assessment of the property, along with a realistic budget for required upgrades and improvements.

Q: How do you determine the cost of an inspection?

A: Our fee schedule for building inspections is based on the type of building, square footage and its use or uses (Industrial, Office Retail or Residential).

Q: Can I/We accompany the inspector?

A: Yes, this is encouraged. Your input can help us better understand your needs and expectations for the property. On site discussion often results in a better understanding of the written report by helping to identify concerns which need additional clarification.

Q: How long will my inspection take?

A: Usually a minimum of 3-4 hours or more, depending on the size of the property, number of units or tenancies and accessibility to all areas.

Q: When will I receive my report?

A: You will usually receive your report five to seven business days after the site inspection.

Q: What if I have questions after the inspection?

A: You are encouraged to call us at any time with questions about your report.

Q: Can I call you about a repair estimate from a contractor for some of the work recommended in my report.

A: Yes, we want you to understand what you are paying for and help you to make sure you are getting the right job at the right price.

Q: What is the difference between a Phase 1 and Phase 2 environmental report?

A: Phase 1 Environmental reports deal with a historical review of past and present uses of a property and the surrounding area, which may require testing to determine any environmental hazard. Phase 2 performs that testing.
