Have your home vetted by a Professional Inspector prior to listing. With a sellers inspection you will be able to list the true market value of your home without fretting over the upcoming findings of the buyers inspector. Peacefully close on your home with both parties satisfied and informed.
If your home has an existing warranty let us ensure that needed repairs do not go uncorrected.
Ensure the work performed on your home has been done to the agreed upon standard. Allow us to spot check the services you paid for.
If you are in the process of building your new home, you are probably sifting through architectural drawings, color schemes, and fabric swatches. Before you get too far into the building process, you should ensure that your home is being built with the careful eye of a trained home inspector. Read More...
Components beyond the scope of a home inspection

As general home inspectors we look for defects. If we spot something unusual that lies outside of our scope of expertise, we'll recommend further evaluation by a specialist.• Wood destroying pests
You can find wood destroying pests in just about any part of the country, but especially in warm climates. A pest inspection will disclose not only termites or powder post beetles, for example, but also dry-rot.• Chimney
Some older chimneys don't have flue liners, or the brick inside the chimney may be crumbling. A chimney inspector will also make sure smoke is discharged properly.• Electrical
A general home inspector may tell you that the electrical box is so old that it no longer complies with city code, but an electrician can tell you the best brands to replace it with and how much it costs, among other disclosures.• Heating and air conditioning
Most furnaces must be taken apart to determine whether the heat exchanger is cracked, for example, or to find out why the unit is malfunctioning. An HVAC specialist can tell you what's wrong, how much it costs to fix the unit, and whether it needs to be replaced.• Lead-based paint
The federal government banned the use of lead-based paint in 1978, but homes newer than 1978 can still contain lead-based paint. You have the right to have the home tested for lead-based paint. To remove lead-based paint, hire a certified lead abatement contractor.• Foundation
While a home inspector can tell you if your home was built on a slab or raised foundation, a foundation engineer can tell you if the home is sliding or the foundation is faulty.• Sewer or septic system inspection
Some older homes may not be connected to a sewer system. Get a sewer inspection. Modern technology calls for a digital camera to be inserted into the sewer line and pushed through to the main line.• Soil stability
Testing the soil is important if you're buying a home on the side of a hill, because you don't want it sliding away during a rainstorm. Some areas also are prone soil contamination.• Arborist
The best way to determine if the trees on the property are healthy is to hire an arborist to inspect them.• Water systems and plumbing
If the plumbing is galvanized, a plumber can tell you if it needs to be replaced. Some galvanized pipes are so clogged that you can barely fit the lead of a pencil through them.• Well
Inspect the construction of the well and find out the depth of the water table, including water sanitation.• Radon or methane gas
A mitigation contractor can test for radon or methane gas and recommend ways to remove it.• Formaldehyde
Formaldehyde is a colorless and flammable gas used as a chemical in building products. It is known to cause cancer in rats. Hire a qualified formaldehyde inspector to do this inspection.• Mold
Mold can trigger health problems in even healthy individuals. There are many different types of mold. You can test for mold presence in a home by testing the air quality.
