Welcome to Capital Inspections.
Meet the Inspector Loren Fraute
My philosophy in inspections is to conduct a quality, unbiased inspection that will not only inform, but also educate the consumers on what they are purchasing and what they should expect the home to be like 3-5 years in the future.

Frequently asked questions
Home inspections are typically conducted after an agreement is reached between the buyer and seller. A sales contract is then written and is conditional upon a satisfactory home inspection. The inspection should be performed within a few days. Usually there is an inspection period of 7-10 days. We recommend doing the inspection as soon as possible. The purpose of the inspection is to present the buyer with an overall view of the physical condition of the home. After the inspection is completed, a written report is prepared for the home buyer which documents the results of the inspection. Although a home inspection should emphasize the positive characteristics of a home, the information can also help you to negotiate a lower price on the home, based on problems that may be discovered.
YES, We always encourage buyers to attend the inspection. Buyers that attend have a better understanding of the property as viewed by the inspector and are better able to read and interpret the final report. Specific questions that a buyer may have can often be answered at the inspection.
The inspection fees vary in accordance with the year of construction, number of stories, size and type of property. Call our office or fill out the form for a specific quote for your property.
Major credits cards, personal check or cash are accepted forms of payment. We do request payment at or prior to the inspection.
Most Inspections take anywhere from 2-3 hours. These times may vary depending on the size, age & condition of the home.
