" Our experience, Your Peace of Mind"
For residential clients, our fee is based on the square footage of the house. For homes over 5,000 square feet and estate properties, EKAN Inspections reviews each inquiry individually to determine the fee, as additional resources may be required for the inspection.
Requests for commercial inspections are replied to with a detailed proposal, using a multi-disciplinary team approach.
