This inspection service is a comprehensive visual evaluation of home’s readily accessible areas. All of our clients can expect to receive an easy-to-read digital inspection report within one day of the completed home inspection.
We’ll inspect the following areas of the home:
- Roofing System (including gutters & downspouts)
- Structural Components
- Foundation & Crawl Spaces
- Fireplace & Chimney
- Exterior (doors, windows, cladding)
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
- Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
- Water Heaters
- Plumbing System
- Electrical System
- Heating System
- Air Conditioning System
- Kitchen Appliances
If the home contains gas appliances, we’ll utilize a gas leak detector as necessary for your safety—and we’ll do so at no extra cost. A moisture meter may also be used to qualify suspected plumbing leaks or areas of moisture intrusion.
Our inspection for home-sellers is a detail-oriented evaluation of a home’s visible and readily accessible components that will reveal potential defects. With this information at your disposal, you’ll know what issues you could encounter during negotiations with prospective buyers—and you’ll have a chance to take any necessary action to prevent those issues from causing negotiations to stall. The inspection should be scheduled prior to making a listing for the property.
Re-inspections should be scheduled soon after the seller of a home has agreed to requests for defective components to be repaired, replaced, or otherwise altered. Once the work has been completed, we can return to the property to perform a second inspection, focusing primarily on the components that have been modified. If more work is needed, we’ll let you know so that you’ll still have time to negotiate additional changes before final closing.
Home Maintenance Inspection
This inspection service benefits current homeowners by providing a complete assessment of the property’s condition that will identify and explain existing home maintenance issues. We’ll also take the time to make sure you understand which maintenance needs should be prioritized, and how soon the work should be done.
