INSPECTION SERVICES

Our Standard Inspection

Listed below you will find a list of the key areas or components of a home, that the home inspector will examine or test during an inspection.  A thermal imaging infrared (IR) camera is also used to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye.  An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors.  By evaluating these images, the home inspector can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, and pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system.

Pre-listing Home Inspection

A pre-listing home inspection informs the seller or listing agent on the current condition of the property.  It helps uncover any problems or conditions that may affect the sale of the home.  This gives the seller or listing agent the time to address these problems or conditions before the home goes on the market.  Presenting the buyer with the pre-listing home inspection report, and showing them that the problems or conditions have been fixed, can make the deal go smoother and faster.

Home Maintenance Inspection

A home maintenance inspection is usually done for a home owner.  It is essentially the same as the other home inspections we offer.  It helps find any defects within the home, and offers recommendations on how to address them.  We also include a cost estimate  guide to help the homeowner prepare to get the defects addressed.  We recommend having a home maintenance inspection performed annually.

Pre-purchase Home Inspection

A pre-purchase home inspection is a thorough examination of a home.  Our certified home inspector will carefully examine all aspects of the home, and provide a well-written report, describing what problems or conditions were found, and recommendations on how to address them.  Having a pre-purchase inspection performed, can also make it easier for a client to get an estimate on the repair costs, and help them in the negotiation process.

11 Month Home Warranty Inspection

An 11 month home warranty inspection can help you take the necessary steps to address problems or conditions with your home, before the new home warranty expires.  A new home warranty is usually for one year only.  Problems or conditions usually start to arise after the first year, but by then it is too late.  Have our certified home inspector carefully examine your home and find these problems or conditions, before the one year warranty expires.
