We will prepare your Home Inspection Reports with easy-to-read details on:

- Major and minor deficiencies
- Safety concerns
- What to watch out for
- Helpful home maintenance.
- And much more
We want you to know more about the house than the present owners!
Our Home Inspector will review the detailed report with you and answer any remaining questions to make sure you understand everything.
A home inspection is a primarily a visual process but many of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated if possible. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be issued to you.
New Construction or Renovation Inspections
Construction inspections (sometimes called 'Bird-dog Inspections') are performed at agreed upon intervals during construction, and at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk-through with the Builder. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder's policy. The last inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk-through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be issued to you.
Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections
Warranty inspections are typically performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed and construction completed as per your agreement with your builder. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
