As an experienced inspector I will prepare your Home
Inspection Reports with easy-to-read details on:

  • The condition of every major component from the roof to the basement
  • Major and minor deficiencies
  • Any major expenditures necessary
  • What to watch out for
  • Helpful home preservation tips
  • Safety concerns
  • And much more

I will will review the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything and answer any remaining questions.

Pre-Purchase Inspection

A home inspection is a visual process where all 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. 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 distributed to you.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imagingInfrared thermography, or thermo imaging, is a non-destructive means of scanning for moisture, missing insulation, wet insulation, leaks in roof systems, and other building anomalies. Our Infrared Survey of the building will be focused on the heat or cooling loss by finding missing, misplaced, or damaged insulation in the exterior walls, ceilings, and floors, as well as leaks around doors and windows which lets heat escape. Through non-destructive means, infrared scanning can pinpoint moisture problems and areas where building heat loss is occurring. Cost savings are experienced by reducing energy costs, improving building occupant comfort and health, reducing potential structural damage caused by excess moisture, and reducing the size of routine maintenance and repair projects. (i.e.: section roof repair vs. full replacement).

4-Point Inspection

A "Four Point Inspection" focuses only on four main areas of interest in a home:

  1. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)
  2. Electrical wiring and panels
  3. Plumbing connections and fixtures
  4. Roof
Insurance companies have become increasingly reluctant to issue Homeowner Insurance Policies on older homes (usually 25 years old or more).Their common concern is that there may be conditions in an older home that could become a liability to them. For instance; a home with a roof nearing the end of its reliable service life may fail while under the policy and the homeowner may seek reimbursement from their insurance company for damages to the home or its contents. Similar concerns extend to the condition of the HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems in an older home. If these elements are in poor condition, in need of being updated or replaced or were improperly installed, they may fail and cause fire or water damage to a home. Newer homes are assumed (by the insurance companies) to not have these problems as frequently as older homes.

New Construction Inspections

New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. 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 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 distributed to you.

Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections

Warranty inspections are 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. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
