We DO NOT do re-inspections after repairs have been made- licensed contractors should be used for repairs and can provide warranties, receipts, etc…   If we are asked to return, through no fault of our own, because water or electricity was turned off during the time of inspection, the cost is typically $125 plus any applicable travel fee.
