100 Day Limited Guarantee Explained:
With each full home inspection by Evergreen Property Inspectors the buyer is provided a 100-Day Guarantee for select mechanical and structural systems that were in good working order at the time of the inspection, had no reported deficiencies or recommended action items, and then fail between the inspection date and soon after you move in.
Here is an overview of the guarantee that applies to the “Illinois Home Inspection” and “Missouri Home Inspection” services performed to the ASHI Standards of Practice.
This guarantee covers specific mechanical and structural items that occur after your full home inspection. The guarantee is valid 100 days from the inspection or 22 days from closing, whichever comes later.
