After your first inspection, you’ll likely have a “punch list” that needs to be addressed before closing. This is true for both newly constructed homes or renovations. 

The seller/contractor will then receive your punch list. Both parties understand that all the remaining fixes/duties for the home must be completed before you agree to move in.

But how do you know the issues were really fixed?

Before you move in, make sure the whole project is complete!

With a reinspection, we will go back to the property for a second round of inspection. We will make sure that the home has been updated and all systems are functioning as requested in the punch list.

Reinspections can:

  • Provide you will peace of mind that all terms have been met
  • Prevent you from having to pay for incomplete work
  • Ensure that the newly constructed home or renovated home is in excellent condition
  • Protect you from being misled by sellers, contractors, or realtors


Municipal building inspectors will make sure that minimum building code standards have been met. But, they will not investigate whether the home meets specific terms between buyer and seller. 

Professional home inspectors bring no bias to the project/sale. Our job is to discover issues before they become BIG problems.


A reinspection is your last chance to make sure that the contractor, realtor, and seller have done their jobs and met the agreed-upon terms of the closing. 

Protect yourself and your investment with a reinspection before you sign on the dotted line.

Buyers Home Inspection

Buyer’s Inspection

Buying a home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so crucial that buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into. During a buyer’s inspection, we form a close partnership with the buyer. We’ll be your guide as we explain any property defects or issues we uncover. We’ll also answer any questions you have.

Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

If you’re selling a home or property, it’s a good idea to have it inspected before it’s listed. Houses with a pre-listing inspection are more attractive to potential buyers. Pre-listing inspections give sellers the chance to work with us to uncover issues or necessary repairs. We’ll also give you our expert recommendations on what repairs to make before showing the property.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction HOME Inspection

Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a new construction home inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction. This allows the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through, which results in an easier and smoother move-in experience.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

ONE YEAR HOME Warranty Inspection

Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During a one year home warranty inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request before their warranty expires. This prevents you from becoming financially responsible for problems that should fall to the original builder.

Re Inspection


After a buyer’s home inspection, the buyer and seller of a home will come to an agreement about what repairs should be made before closing. Once those repairs are made, a re-inspection can be performed in order to ensure all agreements were honored and that the necessary repairs were made.

Commercial Building Inspection

Commercial Building Inspection

During a commercial property inspection, we help buyers of commercial buildings better understand their potential new property before making the final purchase. Just like our home inspection services, we make sure that our commercial inspections are thorough and backed by our experienced and dedicated inspectors. We provide you with a detailed report that clearly breaks down our findings and recommendations.
