General Home Inspection
Our General Home Inspection begins with a comprehensive evaluation of a home’s visible and readily accessible components. We then provide a detailed digital report of our findings that will educate you on the strengths, deficiencies, and unique characteristics of the property.
We inspect these areas of a home:
- Structural Components
- Foundation & Crawl Space
- Fireplace & Chimney
- Driveway & Walkways
- Exterior (cladding, doors, windows, soffits, fascias)
- Deck & Patio
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
- Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
- Heating System
- Cooling System
- Plumbing System
- Electrical System
- Attached Garage
- Built-in Appliances
An Energy Audit will give you a better idea of how efficient a home is—pinpointing areas of energy loss and materials in need of improvement. We’ll inspect most of the readily accessible areas of a home for any signs of inefficiency, including:
- Leaks in the ductwork
- Subpar insulation
- Excessive power consumption from the installed mechanical systems
The audit will also include recommendations for eco-friendly upgrades.
It’s important to understand everything that you can about a home’s condition before listing it on the market. We’ll evaluate the accessible areas of your home to identify any defects or areas in need of improvement. This will give you a chance to schedule repairs as necessary and to disclose pertinent issues with prospective buyers—establishing a better sense of trust as you commence negotiations.
New Construction Inspection
Before the builders take you on the final walkthrough of your new home, allow us to offer our unbiased assessment of the property. We’ll inspect the installed mechanical systems and readily accessible structural components for any issues that you may need to address with the contractors before they leave the job site.
New Construction Phase Inspection
A Phase Inspection is a proven way to ensure that construction progress on your new home stays timely and free from costly oversights. We’ll arrive at several critical stages of construction to evaluate the structure and currently installed systems for any safety issues or faulty installations that require attention before the builders continue.
Many insurers require older homes to meet specified minimum property standards before they’ll issue a policy. We’ll carefully inspect the four critical areas that are typically of greatest concern to insurers: the roofing system, HVAC systems, plumbing system, and electrical system.
After repairs have been completed on any component that we found to be faulty in our original inspection, we’re prepared to return to the property to take another look. We’ll assess the repairwork for correctness and any lingering safety issues that need addressed before negotiations with the seller move forward.
Once moisture infiltrates a property, mold is often quick to follow. Depending on the location of the moisture intrusion, mold proliferation may not always be immediately visible. We’re trained to identify and pinpoint mold inside a home even when it’s well-hidden within the structure.
