Buyer’s Inspection

Our residential property inspection is a thorough investigation into the condition of a home’s visible and readily accessible areas. While we’re still on the property, we’ll email you a full digital report of our findings so that you can start building on your knowledge of the home right away.

We inspect the following areas of the home:

  • Roofing System (including gutters & downspouts)
  • Foundation & Crawl Spaces
  • Structural Components
  • Exterior Features (doors, windows, siding)
  • Driveways & Walkways
  • Deck & Balcony
  • Garage
  • Grading & Drainage
  • Interior Features (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
  • Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
  • Electrical System
  • Heating & Cooling Systems
  • Plumbing System
  • Built-in Appliances

All our inspectors utilize the most modern tools

At no extra cost, we may use the following tools as necessary to ensure a thorough and accurate inspection.  For an extra surcharge, we’re also able to conduct a sewer scope when requested to evaluate the condition of a home’s sewer system. 

Thermal Imaging

Infrared Thermography – utilizes an FLIR E5 infrared camera in an effort to detect potential moisture intrusion, electrical issues, plumbing leaks, and defective areas of the home that may be causing energy loss.

Moisture Meter

Moisture Meter – used to obtain an exact measurement of moisture content in scanned components.

Aerial Drone Inspection

Aerial Drone Photography – a drone is piloted remotely from the ground in order to inspect roofing systems that are too unsafe to walk normally.

Foundation Level

Foundation Level – a digital water level is used to ensure that a home’s foundation hasn’t become sunken or sloped over time.

Additional Inspection Services

Commercial Inspection

Commercial Property Inspection

This inspection service is for commercial properties of virtually any variety, whether it’s a large commercial building such as an industrial complex or a small storefront. We’ll methodically investigate the structural components, grounds, and installed mechanical systems—looking for any issues that you’ll want to be knowledgeable about before negotiating an investment.

Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

Scheduling this inspection service prior to making the listing for your home can greatly benefit the negotiating process and promote a less stressful transaction. We’ll evaluate the readily accessible areas of the home to diagnose defects and to determine the property’s overall maintenance needs, giving you a chance to make repairs and improvements as you see fit. Even if you choose not to work on the home before it’s listed, you can still communicate openly with prospective buyers so that the results of their own inspection won’t have undesirable consequences for your negotiating outcome.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction Inspection

Buying a brand new home is an exciting time, but it’s still necessary to take precautions that will ensure the home is in good condition before moving in. You should schedule this inspection prior to the builder’s final walkthrough so that we can comprehensively evaluate the home before the transaction is final. If we happen to turn up any issues related to safety or defective materials, there will still be a window of time to seek out solutions.

New Construction Phase Inspection

New Construction Phase Inspections

This inspection service includes an investigative inspection of new construction after the home has been framed and once more at final closing. Having the new home inspected at these intervals creates an opportunity to catch mistakes and to diagnose defects before construction is completed—making it significantly easier for the builders to fix problems and for you to have peace of mind with your investment.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Before a new home’s 1-year warranty expires, a prudent homeowner should always schedule an 11th Month Warranty Inspection. We’ll visit the home to thoroughly inspect each visible and readily accessible area, pinpointing the sources of potential defects or safety issues that need taken care of. In accordance with your warranty agreement, certain repairs may not fall under your financial responsibility—saving you money and a major headache.

Re Inspection

Re-Inspections

When our initial home inspection returns an inspection report that flags certain items as defective, you may want to consider scheduling this follow-up inspection service before final negotiations to buy the home. If the seller agrees to seek out corrections for the issues we discovered, we’ll return to the property afterward to make sure that repair work is successful and that replaced components are installed properly.

Home inspection fees start at just $325.

Appointments can be made Monday through Saturday. Online payments are accepted.
