There are different types of home inspections we offer today:

 

  • Buyers Inspection
    In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.

     

  • Sellers Inspection
    Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: we help you answer how serious the problems are, which must be immediately addressed, and which ones can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.

 

  • 4 Point Insurance Inspection                                                                                                        A 4 Point Insurance Inspection is typically performed for a homeowner when requested by their insurance company to obtain a new insurance policy or when renewing an existing policy. This type of Inspection is a limited, visual survey that focuses on 4 major system areas: Heating and Cooling System, Plumbing System, Roofing System and Electrical System. 4 Point Inspections are far less in scope than a standard home inspection.

 

  • Phase Construction and New Construction Inspections
    In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be, therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.

     

  • Warranty Inspection
    Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a lot of money down the road.
