We are first time homebuyers and are looking into buying an older home, so the inspection was very important to us. Sheehan did a fantastic job of inspecting the home, going through the home with me and pointing out any possible concerns, and his report was very easy to go through (I really appreciated that he included pictures and was very specific). Hopefully we won’t need to have another inspection any time soon, but if we did we would definitely use Sheehan again! Highly recommended.
Called Sheehan after calling a bunch of inspectors, all of them would’ve taken about a week to get it done! On-Site Inspections got it done the very next day! and i had the report that same night! perfect timing to begin a project that had a very tight timeline! Thanks alot On-Site!
The service I received from OnSite Home Inspections was absolutely outstanding! Being new to the Provo area I had no idea where to look for a quality home inspector. I consider myself lucky that I was able to find Onsite. Sheehan went above and beyond the duties of most home inspectors. He was flexible to my schedule and understanding about all my concerns. To top it all off, after I made a scheduling mistake he was willing to come back later in the afternoon and complete my inspection so that I could move forward in buying my home. I literally could not ask for better service and actually look forward to the next time I need home inspection services so that I can give these guys a call. They made my life a whole lot easier. -Sheehan is the best!
Sheehan was very thorough and went over all his finding with us, when we showed up for the last hour of the inspection. Also, he had a very detailed report to us by that evening. We were very impressed by his work and will recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection. Thank you, Sheehan!
Sheehan was fantastic. He was thorough, open and honest. We were a little nervous about the inspection, as we are first time home owners, but he took the time to explain things to us and gave us a wealth of much needed information. Well worth the time and fee. I would highly recommend OnSite Home Inspections.

A visual, non-invasive inspection of the various systems and components in the home. Cosmetic items and minor issues are not included. You should not expect your inspector to find everything wrong with the house or predict future conditions on what could go wrong. You should expect to find problems not identified in your report.
You will receive a report that is approximately 25-60 pages in length. It will include photos of shutoff locations, appliance manufacturer labels, as well as problem areas the inspector wants to point out. You will usually receive the report the same day depending on the number of issues with the home.
It is best for buyers to come once the inspection is completed so that they can walk through or review the report and findings with the inspector. This is usually the last half-hour of the scheduled time for the inspection.
The home inspection time varies depending on the size of the house and the number of issues that it has. The average inspection takes 2-3 hours including the walk through and report review.
No house is perfect. If the inspector identifies problems, it doesn’t mean you should or shouldn’t buy the house, only that you will know in advance what to expect. If your budget is tight, or if you don’t want to become involved in future repair work, this information will be important to you. If major problems are found, a seller may agree to make repairs. These items should be discussed with your real estate agent in the negotiation phase after the home inspection.
