Your Full Home Inspection
I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof. I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions. As a Certified Professional Inspector® trained by InterNACHI, I adhere to their comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I will inspect all of the following, when visible and accessible:
• Structural Components
• Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
• Exterior Cladding
• Porch & Deck
• Attached Garage
• Electrical System
• Plumbing System
• HVAC System
• Interior, including:
o Built-In Appliances
o Ceilings, Floors & Walls
Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
Many insurance companies require this inspection for older homes. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition.
Wind Mitigation Inspection
If you’ve made certain improvements to your home to help limit wind damage, a Wind Mitigation Inspection can provide the verification you need to receive credits, discounts or rebates on your homeowner’s insurance.
Seller’s Pre-Listing Inspection
If you’re selling your home, let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. Take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates, avoid 11th-hour delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.
Wood-Destroying Organism (WDO) Inspection
Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. Inspect your home for evidence of infestation now with a pest company before it becomes an expensive problem later.
Roof Inspection & Certification
Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? I will perform a standalone Roof Inspection & Certification and evaluate your roof from the eaves, as well as walk it (when it is safe to do so) to assess its overall condition, including the presence and status of flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.
Builder’s Warranty Inspection
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of a new home. I’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full inspection before the builder’s warranty expires so that you don’t have to go out of pocket for repairs of covered items.
