Home Inspections: A Home Inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a Home, from roof to the foundation. If problems or symptoms are found, the home inspector may recommend further action. A detailed Home Inspection will take between 2 to 4 hours, or longer, depending on your Home’s age and square footage. You need to set up a time for your home inspection so you can be present to ask questions and look at the areas needing maintenance or repair.
The detailed Home Inspection will include a review of the following:
- The roof and its components including chimney, ventilation and plumbing stacks, skylights, etc.
- The exterior including the siding, windows, garage, porches, patios, decks, water faucets, electrical and other components
- A review of the ground slope at the house
- The foundation and its components
- The central heating and air conditioning system and its components
- The plumbing and its components
- The electrical system and its components
- The interior walls, ceiling, floors and their components
- The built in kitchen appliances and their components
- All aspects of a bathroom
Once the home inspection is complete, a detailed report will be provided to you for review. To see an example of one of our reports please visit our sample reports page.
Re-Inspections – Re-inspections are done after repairs have been done that were listed on the original home inspection. This inspection determines if the negotiated repairs we performed and appear to be done properly. They are often needed prior to closing on the sale of the home.
Pre-Sale Home Inspections: Pre-Sale home inspections can help sellers identify the items needed for repair before putting their home on the market. This is the same thorough inspection performed for purchasers and can avoid timely repair issues that may be found by another inspector that the purchaser hires.
Roof Vents: Roof Vents inspections may be required by insurance companies, and they have the potential of reducing home insurance premiums. Some of the items reported on are the construction of the roof, age and type of the roof shingles, opening protection (roof vents), and the roof shape. Contact us to see if this inspection will be beneficial for you.
Four Point Inspections: Four Point Inspections may be required by insurance companies, however sometimes they are optional. These inspections cover general information on the Roof, Electrical, Plumbing and the Air Conditioning (A/C). Contact us to see if a Four Point Inspection may be in your best interest.
Roof Certifications – Roof inspections are usually required by insurance companies to determine the age, condition and life expectancy of the roof.
Water Sampling – Water samples are collected and brought to the lab to be tested for traces of bacteria such as Total Coliform, Ecoli, Nitrate, Nitrite, lead and other items depending on the test. These results are often required for loan purposes when wells are present.
