FAQs – TG Project Management

Most of our inspections are based on recommendations by other clients, attorneys and agents but feel free and call us and ask about our credentials and experience. If for some reason you don’t feel comfortable asking this of the inspector when speaking with them on the phone then how will you feel asking questions at the inspection? You must feel that the inspector is qualified, experienced and attentive of your needs.

A thorough Inspection covers everything from roof to the foundation

You should be present at the NJ home inspection. This allows for in- person conversation in which the home inspector can address your concerns, answer your questions, and focus on your individual needs as a purchaser.

Most Inspections take about 2 to 3 hours. These times may vary depending on the size, age & condition of the home. We pride ourselves on performing a very thorough New Jersey home inspection so that you can receive the most information possible.

The NJ home inspection is defined as a functional, visual, non-invasive inspection that is conducted without moving furniture, personal property, plants, soil, equipment, debris, snow, or ice, using mandatory equipment and also including the completion of a home inspection report of the unrestricted elements of the following elements of a residential building: exterior components, structural components, plumbing system, roofing system, heating system, electrical system, cooling system, insulation components, interior components, ventilation system, fireplaces, and solid fuel-burning appliances, as well as any other residential housing component as is determined by the Board, and in consultation with the Committee, but excluding outbuildings other than carports or garages and also recreational facilities and determine if material defects exit. NJ home inspectors are governed by the rules contained in N.J.A.C. 13:40-15. Comments that exceed the state standards are for the Client’s information only; they are not part of the New Jersey home inspection.

The purchase of a new home is one of the single most costly investments that a family will make. Along with the extra stresses this will add, there is also the fear factor of, “Will This Home Stand The Test of Time?” It is also important to know what YOU, as the primary investor, are getting for your money.

A home inspection is an excellent tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine not only the condition of the home, but to also help foresee any immediate unnecessary additional cost that may go unnoticed without the help of a home inspection. Home inspections are not a prediction of future performance, but can pinpoint existing problem areas.

We use a state-of-the-art home inspectors reporting system that includes a mobile computer that the inspector will bring onsite to the inspection. All of the information that is gathered during the inspection is entered into the computer. The NJ home inspector takes the information from the mobile computer and up- loads it into the report. The inspector then adds specific comments that are unique to the home and your New Jersey home inspection. The report is not generated onsite, because we feel that a quality, individualized-report takes time to produce. We do not use checklist-type reporting systems because they do not give you all of the information that you and your attorney need to make an informed buying decision.

Yes, we do incorporate photos in the home inspection report. We will include photos of the major defects or problems that we find in the home. We do not take photos of every defect found, but we use our judgment as to what photos are important to include.

You will have the home inspection report the next day following the inspection, delivered by electronic mail or hard copy per. your request. We will send a printed copy of the NJ home inspection report to your attorney so that you and your real estate attorney can work together to make informed decisions about your purchase.

No, the New Jersey home inspection is not a code inspection. We do not pass or fail a home.

No, under the laws that govern NJ home inspectors, we cannot recommend contractors or repair people because of the inherent conflict of interest in doing so. We cannot perform any corrective action or repairs on the home ourselves for the same reasons. We, as New Jersey home inspectors, are permitted to recommend engineering firm if further structural evaluations are required. TG Project Management, LLC does offer Professional Engineering consultations free of charge should you request our services.

Yes, if the roof is accessible with an 11-foot ladder and is safe to access. We do not go on rooftops that are slippery, covered with snow, damaged, rotted, or steeply pitched.

Yes, in the right circumstances. I operate the air conditioner when temperatures have been above 65°F for a 24-hour period. If the weather is cold, we can view the air conditioner unit visually but cannot operate it because there is a good chance that the unit will be damaged. You may hire an HVAC professional to test the air conditioner. He or she may have specialized equipment to prevent damage from occurring in colder temperatures.

Yes. We will do the pre-closing inspection with you if it can be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time and date. This is not another full home inspection-its purpose is to make sure that conditions have not changed since the initial inspection. We will review all prior areas of concern visually with no additional report submitted to client. Our fee for this service is $100-this represents a discounted fee because we feel that the pre-closing inspection is very important and is sometimes neglected.

This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they are not trained or experienced at professional home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we call an inspector’s instinct for problems. That instinct takes extensive training and lots of experience doing inspections to develop. Many contractors, and other trades professionals hire a professional home inspector to inspect their homes when they make a purchase.
