Log Home Inspection
Inspecting a log home is different than a typical home inspection. Along with the key areas or components of a standard home inspection, settlement and wood decay are two of the major concerns with log homes. Settlement can cause major issues with different components of the home, such as windows and doors, staircases, partition walls, and plumbing. Wood decay is also another common issue with log homes. Sometimes the wood decay is not always visible, it can be hidden within the logs themselves. Many different circumstances can promote wood decay, such as deteriorated finishes, wood-destroying insects, and runoff.

Mobile/Manufactured Home Inspection
Inspecting a mobile/manufactured home is different than a typical home inspection. A mobile/manufactured homes different systems, tend to deteriorate over time. Having a full inspection performed, including the underside of the home, is very important. The main frame and I-beams, vapor barrier and floor insulation, proper supporting and anchoring systems, are just some of the major items to inspect.

Multi-Unit Housing Inspection
A multi-unit inspection is different than a typical single-family home inspection. Raptor Inspections will inspect all systems of the property, and assess the property for any defects that may become a liability as a landlord. A multi-unit housing inspection can include up to four separate units.
A condo or apartment has an even more complex system than a single-family home. Raptor Inspections will conduct a thorough inspection of the condominium's or apartment's systems and components, as well as compile the findings into a detailed, well written report.
Rural Property Inspection
A rural property inspection includes any outbuildings, for structural and safety issues, and to make sure that their systems and components are functioning as they should. Also included in the rural property inspection is any exterior fencing and gates for damage, landscaping and grading for proper drainage, and trees and foliage to make sure that they're properly trimmed and don't pose a wildfire hazard or other problems, including unwanted moisture intrusion.
Heat Loss Inspection
A heat loss inspection includes an attic to basement assessment of your home’s insulation and heating systems. We use an infrared camera to perform a thermal scan of the walls, around windows and doors, the attic, and the home's foundation. Raptor Inspections is infrared certified and ready to perform your next heat loss inspection.
An aging-in-place inspection is designed to help seniors who want to live on their own, in their own home. It is not like a standard home inspection. The inspector will inspect the home and compile a list of possible modifications, to make it safer and more functional for seniors. The recommendations will then be compiled into a detailed, well written report. Raptor Inspections is certified and ready to handle your next aging-in-place inspection.
