The strength of our home inspection comes from our wide variety of specialty inspections which broaden our scope of expertise. We bring an arsenal of tools to aid in the analysis of any number of problems that may be discovered.
We try to find the truth from anyone who has it. We begin that process the minute you confirm our appointment.
We will bring-up the municipal permits issued for the address with our BuildFax subscription. It is a great advantage to know what you're walking into.
For The First-Time Buyer, I walk you through your new home and demonstrate some of the features of the home while we also test the basic systems. I show you the shut-offs for your main appliances and offer suggestions for upgrades or maintenance issues. Our detailed report will include photos of all major defects or specialty items. We leave you with a home owners manual as a gift.
For The Condo Buyer, our price and inspection tour also includes any of the common elements of the property that you would care for me to see or that we may access to (roof, central heat, etc.) You are buying a piece of this building; you should know a little about it.
For The Single Family Home Buyer, we conduct a typically thorough inspection and testing of all accessible systems and components. We will access roofs safely and as needed. We make note of landscaping and garages and other exterior systems. We do not test low-voltage lighting.
For The Small Commercial or Investment Property Buyer, I bring all of my single-unit experience with me to examine in detail the building you're investing in. I can work quickly in rental units and gather the data I need for an opinion on its general condition. I include plenty of photos for absent partners and the digital reports forward easily.
For The Mold Testing Owner, I am a Certified Technician for taking samples of mold, lead, asbestos, and allergens via bulk, tape, swab, wall-chek, cannister and vacuum. I provide reports from ProLab within 3 days with my additional analysis of their findings. I can provide third-party In/Out testing for remediation projects. The important thing: I find the water!
For The Energy Audit Home Owner, I can offer a variety of levels of service depending on your needs. We use our infrared thermal camera in all audits.
Please call us so we can be of help.
