This thorough inspection of a home’s visible and readily accessible components is intended for anyone who is planning to be a home—first-time buyers and experienced investors alike! A detailed report of our findings will be available within 24 hours.
We inspect these components:
- Roofing (including gutters & downspouts)
- Foundation, Basement, & Crawl Spaces
- Structural Components
- Exterior (doors, windows, cladding)
- Driveways & Walkways
- Garage & Carports
- Grading & Drainage
- Deck & Balcony
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
- Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
- Electrical System
- Heating & Cooling Systems
- Plumbing System
- Most major appliances
An aerial drone will be used for free as necessary when roofing systems are unsafe to be walked due to slick materials, extreme pitch, existing damage, or inclement weather. Thermal imaging may also be used at no extra cost to qualify suspected moisture issues or poor insulation inside the home.
If you want to sell your home with minimal stress, you need to have a well-rounded understanding of the home’s condition in advance. This inspection should be scheduled before you create the listing for the property so that we can assess the home’s overall condition. When you know about existing defects, you’ll have an opportunity to fix them before showing the home—and you’ll also be able to keep prospective buyers informed so that negotiations don’t become more difficult than they have to be once a buyer’s own inspection is conducted.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection service will provide you with an unbiased assessment of a newly constructed home’s readily accessible features. We’ll perform the inspection prior to the builder’s final walkthrough, taking detailed notes about the property’s existing strengths and weaknesses so that you have the information you need to negotiate improvements that need to be made, if necessary.
An invisible and odorless gas with radioactive properties, radon can be hazardous to the health of anyone who is exposed. Radon can sometimes penetrate the structure of a home as the gas is naturally released by geological processes underground, putting families at risk. Before you buy a home, contact us so that we can use a state-of-the-art radon monitor to check the radon levels—keeping you informed so that you know whether or not radon mitigation measures will be necessary.
Thermal Infrared Inspection
We offer a standalone thermal imaging inspection service for clients who want the peace of mind of knowing whether or not their prospective home is affected by hidden moisture issues. Learning about temperature inconsistencies in the home’s structure can also point us toward defective insulation and electrical hotspots.
