This comprehensive home inspection is for anyone who is preparing to put a home on the market. Before that listing is made, we’ll evaluate the home’s condition from top to bottom, informing you of any defects we find so that you can choose whether or not to put repairs into place. Doing so can help promote smoother negotiations, and it can prevent a buyer’s inspection from stalling negotiations altogether due to undisclosed issues.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection service should take place prior to the builder’s final walkthrough of new home construction. We’ll provide our unbiased assessment of the entire property, informing you of any deficiencies we’ve identified so that you can notify the seller of the home and seek corrective action before closing on the property.
New Construction Phase Inspections
We can also inspect new home construction at several different phases to keep you informed of the property’s condition throughout the build. If issues are discovered, the builders can have them corrected before moving on to the next phase so that you have peace of mind knowing that the home is built soundly through and through.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
A new home warranty will often expire within the first year after final closing, and it’s a good idea to have the home professionally inspected before this occurs. This allows us to find areas of the home that may have become defective over the past several months, giving you a chance to see if the warranty covers repairs so you don’t end up paying solely out of pocket.
Home Maintenance Inspection
A home can’t be expected to maintain itself, and when a homeowner is able to stay current with maintenance tasks, they’ll enjoy fewer unexpected expenses in the future. We’ll help you maintain the home by thoroughly inspecting the property, returning a full report of our findings so that you know exactly what needs improved and how to prioritize those improvements.
Loan Draw Inspection
When terms are violated on a construction loan, the fallout can be extensive, expensive, and time consuming for all parties involved. We can help you avoid potential litigation by conducting Loan Draw Inspections periodically throughout the construction process. By reviewing the loan agreement and all draw requests, we can then assess the jobsite to check for potential violations in either the materials stored on-site or in the overall state of the build.
For this inspection service, we can inspect areas of a home that have been repaired or otherwise improved since we found those areas to be defective in our original inspection. We’ll meticulously evaluate the specific areas of the home in question, ensuring that any issues have been properly remediated so that you can move forward with negotiations to purchase the home.
If you’re buying a home, you should have it tested for radon—period. Radon is an incredibly dangerous gas that has no odor and cannot be seen with the naked eye. We’re able to use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to test the home for concentrations of radon, informing you when the results come in about whether or not radon mitigation will be necessary.
WDI / Termite Inspection
Termites are highly destructive creatures that are a common enemy of homeowners across the nation. For this inspection service, we’ll thoroughly assess the home for evidence of termite damage and ongoing infestations so that you can take the necessary action moving forward to protect your prospective investment.
Commercial Property Inspection
This investigative inspection service is for commercial properties, ranging from light properties such as storefronts to properties that take up a great deal of real estate, such as warehouses and industrial facilities. We’ll thoroughly assess the property’s structures and installed mechanical systems, providing an accurate and in-depth report of our findings.
If your current or prospective have has tested positive for unsafe levels of radon, radon mitigation will be recommended. We’ll follow the least invasive procedures possible to vent radon from the home, ensuring that levels are below a safe threshold so that you can be confident that your health is not jeopardized while occupying the home.
