  2. 2. 11/4/2008 Welcome First Time Visitor First Time Visitor > Russell Layton Associates, Inc. Home Inspection Services Check Calendar Rusty Layton's Bio Rusty Layton is a native of the Washington Resource DC area. He grew up in the Maryland Page suburbs, graduated from the University of Maryland in 1977, and has resided in Contact Northern Virginia since 1980. He worked with and his father through high school and college for Scheduling General Heating installing HVAC systems and boilers.

He also supervised (Assateague Island the construction of single family homes with 2005) Washington Homes and Globe Construction in Alexandria and Burke Centre, Virginia. He was then employed by Real Estate Appraisal Services, as Vice President of the Inspection Department. Mr. Layton then worked for Homechek Inspection Services, of Falls Church, Virginia for fifteen years and in 1996, opened his own inspection business, Russell Layton Associates, Incorporated. He is a certified member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) . Home Inspection Scheduling We have three inspection time slots to choose from each weekday and Saturday (morning, mid-day and afternoon) at 9 AM to 9:15 AM, Noon to12:30 PM and 3:30 to 4 PM. I can work with you on preferred or needed times. You or your agent can call to schedule the inspection and to get your price quote. If you want to, you can check my Calendar online and decide what works best for you before you call. You'll need to make sure that we have access to the property and always check to make sure the utilities are on. Please don't expect me to turn on water or gas or electricity - there is too much liability involved for me to do these things! It is encouraged that the owner of the house to
  3. 3. be inspected is not present during the home inspection. You should attend the home inspection so you can learn all sorts of good (and not-so-good) things about house. Even though there are good and bad things with all houses, you will appreciate learning about all of them! We offer Radon testing in addition to the Home Inspection which is a separate fee and report which normally takes 2-3 days to complete after deployment. Home Inspection Report Rusty Layton will inspect the property and follow the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics described by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). You will be issued a report at the end of the inspection. The report will follow the requirements of ASHI. The report will include a list of working order defects, major defects, maintenance needs, repair needs and suggested improvements that we find during the inspection. It is not a computerized reporting system, which I believe has too many extraneous and unrelated items, not to mention taking time away from the purpose of inspecting, learning and reporting the salient points. I designed the report myself; it is unique and quite understandable. My clients are satisfied with it and I'll have two copies to give you. The report will be placed in a three ring binder along with additional information, a walk-through checklist and a how-to book of home repair and maintenance. Ballpark cost estimates and pictures can be included easily. Inspection Wrap-up Upon completion of the inspection, we will review the results. Usually, you will be formulating your response to the seller with your agent at that time. Generally, you will give a copy of your report to your agent who in turn will take it to their office and fax it, along with your addendum, to the listing agent. These guidelines, however, will vary. Payment is due at the inspection by check or credit card (Visa, MC, AMEX and Discover).
