General Home Inspection
Our residential property inspection is a non-invasive assessment of a home’s visible and readily accessible areas. We’ll take note of a home’s strengths and weaknesses so that you’ll have all of the information you need to continue with negotiations. Your inspection report for all inspection services will be available by login less than 24 hours later.
Inspected areas include:
- Roofing System
- Foundation & Crawl Space
- Structural Components
- Deck & Patio
- Attached Garage
- Exterior (doors, windows, cladding)
- Interior (doors, windows, walls, floors, ceilings, stairs)
- Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
- Fireplace & Chimney
- HVAC Systems
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
For inaccessible roofing systems, a Spectoscope will be used to assess the structure’s condition. A moisture meter may be used to qualify suspected areas of moisture intrusion anywhere inside the home.
Commercial Property Inspection
We offer thorough commercial inspections that will diagnose any issues with the primary structure of a building and any installed mechanical systems. We can inspect commercial buildings of virtually any size, ranging from factories to small business spaces.
This inspection can be a tremendous asset for individuals who are preparing to sell a home. We’ll arrive to the property to evaluate the condition of the home and its various systems, determining if there are any issues that you need to be aware of. This will help you establish a much greater level of trust during negotiations when you disclose known issues to prospective buyers, ensuring that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
New Construction Inspection
When construction is nearly finished on your new home, it’s wise to seek the opinion of a third-party, objective home inspector. We’ll assess the materials used to ensure that they’re safe and applied to the structure correctly. We’ll also look over any installed mechanical systems to make sure that there are no defects that need to be addressed by the contractors.
4 Point Inspection
A 4 Point Inspection may be required by your insurance agency if you’re seeking coverage on an older home. The inspection consists of a thorough evaluation of four key areas: the HVAC, roofing, plumbing, and electrical systems.
To ensure that a home has access to clean water, we’ll take samples from the well (if applicable) and the tap. A laboratory test will reveal if any dangerous concentrations of bacteria or heavy metals are present—giving you vital information that can be used to determine how to best proceed in negotiations to buy the home.
If during our original home inspection, we discovered one or more defective components—then we’ll be glad to return to the property to evaluate any repairwork. We’ll check for safety adherence, proper installation, and to ensure that no remaining issues are present.
