An experienced inspector will prepare your Home Inspection Report with easy-to-read details like:

  • The condition of every major component from roof to basement
  • Major and minor deficiencies
  • Any major expenditures necessary
  • What to watch out for
  • Helpful home preservation tips
  • Safety concerns
  • And much more

Our Home Inspector will take the time to go over the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything and answer any questions you may have.

Pre-Purchase Inspections
A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. For example: doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials are thoroughly inspected and we test the operation of air-conditioning and heating systems. Your inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s) and flush the toilets. And throughout the process, your inspector will take detailed notes on the condition and operation of the components tested and all details will be provided to you in a report upon completion.

New Construction Inspections
New construction inspections are performed after the completion of construction, but a day or two prior to your final walkthrough with the builder’s customer service representative or Superintendent. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. Keep in mind it is always helpful to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the builder (depending on the builder’s policy). At the conclusion of the inspection, a completed report will be distributed to you.

Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections
Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year builder warranty. The inspection verifies that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.

Investor Property Inspections (Includes Multi-Unit Housing)
Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections identify defects prior to taking ownership in order to negotiate repairs or price adjustments, which more accurately reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio identify necessary repairs for a variety of situations – such as following a long-term tenant’s departure. In this case, long-term tenants may neglect to mention repairs made and/or property abuse during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.

Seller Certified Home Program (Pre-Listing Inspections)
A Listing Inspection is very good for the homeowner who may not be completely up to speed with the condition of the home they are trying to sell. In fact, the reason many sales end up getting cancelled is due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. A house may look great at first glance, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is an ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. While repairing items is the most straightforward approach to solving this problem before a sale, there may be financial obstacles preventing the owner from making such repairs. Therefore, disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
