Buyer’s Inspection

This inspection is a non-invasive evaluation of a home’s visible and readily accessible components. We encourage the prospective homebuyer to attend the inspection for a closer look at the property, making it easier to understand how the various components function and how defective materials may affect the safety and structural soundness of the home. After the inspection is over, a full report of our findings will be delivered within the following 24 hours. We’re available after the inspection to answer any additional questions the customer may have.

We inspect the following components:

  • Roof
  • Structural Components
  • Foundation & Crawl Spaces
  • Basement
  • Attached Garage
  • Driveways & Walkways
  • Deck & Patio
  • Exterior (doors, windows, cladding, soffits, fascias)
  • Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
  • Attic, Insulation, and Ventilation
  • Fireplace
  • Heating & Cooling Systems
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing System
  • Built-in Appliances

Pre-Listing Inspection

Before you list a home, you should consider contacting us to schedule an investigative evaluation of the property. This promotes a successful sale in two extremely important ways. You’ll be able to learn about any defective areas of the home so that you can make repairs at your own discretion to preserve the property’s value, and you’ll be able to maintain trust with prospective buyers by keeping them informed of any known issues before the buyer’s own inspector arrives to the property.

New Construction Inspection

This inspection should be scheduled before the builder’s final walkthrough of a brand new home. We’ll thoroughly examine the structure and installed mechanical systems, looking for any defective materials or safety issues that the builder should have corrected before it’s time to hand your family the keys to the home.

New Construction Phase Inspections

This inspection is generally conducted at several different phases of construction on a new home, including pre-foundation, pre-drywall, and before the builder’s final walkthrough. Through this process, we’re able to catch any defects before it’s too late to correct them, keeping the homeowner happy and keeping the construction project on track.

Loan Draw Inspections

For this inspection, we’ll arrive to a construction site at several stages of the build to ensure that the project remains compliant with the terms and conditions agreed upon with the bank that’s financing the loan. We’ll carefully look over the originally proposed budget to make sure that the materials used and stored on-site continue to satisfy the loan agreement. We’ll also make sure that current progress on the home continues to follow the agreed upon timeline.

Re-Inspections

If we reported that a defective component was found during one of our inspections, then you should consider scheduling this inspection once the seller of the home has followed through with arranging any necessary repair work. We’ll return to the home to evaluate any changes that have been made, checking for safe materials, proper installation, and to make sure that there are no remaining problems.

Boat Dock and Seawall Inspections

For this inspection, we’ll thoroughly examine the structure of a seawall to look for any defects or damage that could be preventing the wall from functioning as intended. If a boat dock is present on the property, we’ll look over the pilings, decking, and other structural components to make sure that there are no safety issues or components otherwise in need of repair or replacement.

Radon Testing

Radon is an odorless and invisible gas that sometimes works its way into a living space after naturally forming underground and subsequently rising up to penetrate the foundation or exterior of a home. Radon has been identified as a contributor to serious lung conditions, and unfortunately, the gas is nearly impossible to detect without proper training and equipment. We recommend that all prospective homebuyers consider scheduling a Radon Test, either along with a Buyer’s Inspection or as a standalone service.

WDO/Termite Inspection

No one wants to go through the headache of having to deal with previously undiscovered termite damage after buying a home. This inspection covers most readily accessible areas of a home and will reveal any existing damage caused by termites. We’ll also keep an eye out for any signs of an ongoing infestation.

Mold and Indoor Air Quality Inspection

This inspection will assess the air quality in a home while also evaluating the property’s readily accessible areas for any signs of mold contamination or related damage. This service can be scheduled by itself or as an add-on to a Buyer’s Inspection.
