Purchasing a new home also means buying that home's problems. With a pre-purchase home inspection you can see exactly what you're buying. Problems discovered during the inspection will allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs — potentially saving you thousands of dollars. We'll even help you become familiar with the property.View Details
Sometimes selling your home can be just as much of a roller coaster as buying one. Getting a pre-listing home inspection can help ensure a quick and smooth transaction. You can enter the selling process with confidence that there won't be any nasty surprises. You'll also avoid delays, which could last for weeks or even months.View Details
Don't release your builder from their warranty until you've had your home thoroughly examined by an experienced inspector. An end of home warranty inspection is a great opportunity to fix problems from faulty workmanship or materials — problems the builder should be accountable for. Many items we find are difficult to notice and could become a major safety or financial concern over time, leaving you to deal with the mess.View Details
If you're looking to buy a home with a pool or spa, then it's strongly advised to get a pool and spa inspection. While these features are highly sought after, they can also be very expensive to maintain and repair. A pool & spa inspection includes checking the pool's structure, safety features, equipment, as well as the surrounding deck.View Details
Avoid nasty disputes with the landlord by having us inspect your rental unit, and documenting the current state of the unit at the time of move-in. When you move out, an unscrupulous landlord will be unable to hold you financially accountable for problems that existed before you moved in.View Details
Check faucets and showers, looking for visible leaks as well as testing functional flow and drainage. Identify the types of pipes used, if visible. Identify the location of the main water shutoff valve.
Identify the type(s) of wiring (where visible), test a representative number of receptacles, and make sure there are GFCIs installed where needed to protect from electrical shock. Inspect the electrical panel for safety issues and fire hazards.
Determine the approximate age of the furnace and air conditioner, whether or not they function properly, and possibly recommend repairs or maintenance.
Determine the approximate age of the water heater and check for proper installation. We can also determine the condition and possibly give an estimated remaining life span of the unit.
Check for proper ventilation (to the extent visible). A poorly ventilated dryer exhaust can be a serious fire hazard.
Check for the presence of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and ensure that the garage wall (if present) has the proper fire rating and is undamaged. Also check the fireplace for proper installation and maintenance.
Check for visible leaks, properly secured toilets and proper ventilation to prevent moisture related issues, and more.
Where visible and accessible, check for structural damage and proper ventilation. Also check insulation and ensure that nothing is ventilated directly into the attic, such as interior exhaust fans.
Check for damaged or missing siding, cracks, and excessive soil contact which can be an invitation for pests.
Check for possible foundation failure, which is indicated by cracks or settling.
Check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the residence, which prevents water from entering the house or causing damage to the foundation.
If accessible and visible, check for roof damage or poor installation that may allow for water penetration as well as checking the condition of the drainage systems.
Test the garage door for proper functionality, check for proper operation of safety reverse, and check for risks of explosion from ignition sources too close to the floor.
