Gilded Leaf Home Inspections LLC
ProMatcher
Answer: No, home inspection does not come with a warranty
Explanation: An inspector is hired to find defects. At InFocus Inspection we believe that the warranty products have too much fine print and offer nothing further than to increase the price of the service. If your inspector finds the defects there should be no need to warranty the systems they inspected. If you are shopping for an inspector that offers these warranties, please read the fine print and research the product they are offering before considering it as a positive selling point.
InFocus Inspection
Answer: No, home inspection does not come with a warranty
Explanation: A home inspection is not a home warranty. An inspection is a report on the condition of the major systems of a home at the time of inspection. The condition of the home can change from the time of inspection and when you do a final walk through. Home warranties are available but that is separate from the inspection.

JDM.Services
Answer: No, home inspection does not come with a warranty
Explanation: While some inspectors offer a warranty on their inspections it is not specifically required. Your home inspection is a snapshot of the conditions of the home on the day of the inspection and is not a warranty against future change or failure of components of the home. NACHI Certified Professional Inspectors may offer to include the NACHI "We'll Buy Your Home" Guarantee, which is the best in the industry to my knowledge. If the NACHI certified inspector participating in the program misses something during the inspection, NACHI will buy the home back from the buyer at full sales price. That's an amazing guarantee.
