Home Inspections are intended to provide you with an understanding of the home’s current condition. Though often thought of as unnecessary, home inspections are in fact a critical part of the home buying/home selling process and have the potential to save you a lot of money.
Your home inspection report will state everything that was observed at the time of the inspection. We will conduct a thorough, visual examination in order to detect defects and deficiencies present at that time. You will be given valuable insights and knowledge about the condition of your home’s major systems and components, as well as recommendations for areas that may need repairs. Our goal at Scheidt Home Inspection is to help you be better informed about the condition of your home.
Scheidt Home inspection is based in Fresno, California and is happy to serve the Central Valley as well as other areas of the state.

Why are Scheidt Home Inspection prices sometimes so much less than others?
Long story but we’ll try to shorten it…
Jerrold became a home inspector after his own home inspection experience when he bought my current home. He decided that he had to do something because he didn’t want anyone taken advantage of as he had been. He knew about building and maintaining a home but nothing about what home inspectors are supposed to do. As a retired deputy he loved serving his community. Becoming a home inspector gave him a new way to continue helping those in his surrounding community. His goal is to help as many people as possible so he tries to keep prices very reasonable. He does not charge any additional fees- No additional fee for inspecting the attic or crawlspace, no additional fee for age of home, etc. If you provide us with all the information about the size of the property you would like inspected, we can give you an accurate quote.
Why do small, older homes cost the same to inspect as some larger, newer homes?
Though older homes are often about 1000 square feet or even less, they can pose many challenges. We have found that there usually have been multiple improvements done over a period of decades that require careful inspection.
The components that make up the home’s electrical wiring and plumbing systems could be a mix of 100+ year-old technology, and as new as last weeks. This is a common challenge and requires a bit of extra time to inspect and also more time to write up in a report. Older homes also have crawlspaces and additions that need to be inspected carefully for possible unseen construction, plumbing and foundation problems. To be thorough, the average older home takes up to twice as long to inspect and more than twice as long for the report to be written as a new home.
