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 request 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 require immediate attention.
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. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: we help you determine the severity of the problems that need to be immediately addressed. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.
Knowledge is not only power, it can save you money. We provide thorough maintenance inspections for current homeowners in order to identify potential problems before they grow into expensive, hazardous emergencies. We can also detect and suggest ways to save money on your home heating and cooling bills.
In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it was some years ago. Therefore, many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
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 Inspector’s list of items which will most likely be repaired by your builder, repairs which would be considered reasonable and normal 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 great deal down the road.
A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of strong and weak points so that you will have all the facts necessary for a sound, informed decision.
Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will usually take about three hours. Ideally, you will accompany your inspector at the end during which time he will go over his findings with you, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.
We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any problem areas noted so you can easily identify them. We are also available by phone or email for any other questions you might have after your inspection.
