Buyers Home Inspection

Buyer’s Inspection

A home is a huge investment, and buyers deserve to understand exactly what they’re getting into before moving forward with closing a deal on their prospective property. During a Buyer’s Inspection, we uncover the defects on the property and spend time with the buyer, explaining to them how the components of the home operate and answering any questions they may have.

Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

Homes which have been inspected before they were listed are more attractive to potential buyers. During a Pre-Listing Inspection, we help home sellers make confident decisions about what repairs to make before showing the property so that they can increase their negotiating power.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction Inspection

Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a New Construction Inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction, allowing the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through and an easy move-in.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Many newly constructed homes are often sold along with a 12-month warranty from the builder that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During the 11th Month Warranty Inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request in the final month before becoming financially responsible for the problems themselves.

Re Inspection

Re-Inspection

After a Buyer’s Inspection, the buyer and seller of a home will come to an agreement about what repairs should be made before closing. A Re-Inspection can help keep everyone on the same page. We will revisit the property to inspect the new repairs and ensure that all agreements were honored.

Commercial Building Inspection

Commercial Property Inspection

During a Commercial Property Inspection, we help buyers of storefronts, offices, and other commercial buildings better understand what they are getting into before making their purchase.

Additional Services – Offered Standalone or Bundled

Radon Testing

Radon Testing

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally in soil from the breakdown of uranium. As radon rises from the ground, it can enter a home, become trapped, and build to dangerous levels. Exposure to the gas can cause cancer, but detection is impossible without professional equipment. Schedule Radon Testing as a standalone service or bundled with your inspection to keep your home and family safe.

WDO Termite Inspection

WDO/Termite Inspection

Although small, termites and other wood-destroying organisms can be a source of major damage to a property. During a WDO Inspection, we search the home thoroughly for signs of an existing infestation, related damage, and moisture in the home that can attract these pests.

Drone Inspection

Drone Inspection

In a situation where a roof’s pitch or material makes it unsafe to walk on foot, an aerial drone can be used to collect high-resolution images of the roof that we can safely and thoroughly inspect for damages and defects.

Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection

Infrared Camera Inspection

An Infrared Camera picks up on thermal energy, allowing us to see areas of heat loss or excessive heat behind home surfaces that can’t be seen with the naked eye. During the Infrared Camera Inspection, we search the home for hidden moisture intrusion, leaks, improper insulation, electrical hotspots, and more.

Property Consulting and Diagnostic Work

Property Consulting and Diagnostic Work

Individual property owners, as well as condominium associations, deserve to know how to troubleshoot the common issues that affect a property. We offer Property Consulting, during which we determine what may be negatively affecting a property and offer our professional advice about remediation, maintenance, and repair.

HOA Property Inspection

HOA Inspection for Condo Associations

We offer HOA Inspections for condominium associations who want to keep their building safe and well-maintained without having to inspect each individual unit. We thoroughly inspect the common areas of the property to determine if defects and damages exist.
