What is a Home Inspection?

A Home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home often in connection with the sale of a house. They are conducted by a home inspector who is licensed and state certified. This is what most clients request for real estate transactions. This is a visual inspection of all the working components of the home with a highly detailed report that includes photos.

Here are the key areas you can expect to be covered in a home inspection report:

• Structural components including foundation and framing of the home.

• Exterior features including siding, soffit, porches, balconies, walkways, railings and driveways.

• Roof system including shingles, flashing and skylights.

• Electrical system including service panels, breakers and fuses.

• Plumbing systems including pipes, drains, water heating equipment and sump pumps.

• Heating system including equipment and venting.

• Cooling system including energy sources and distribution equipment.

• Interior features including walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, stairs and railings.

• Insulation and ventilation including those in the attic and other unfinished spaces.

• Fireplaces including chimneys and vents.

Why should I have my home inspected?

For the home buyer:

A Home Inspection provides a peace of mind by helping you to make an informed home buying decision by revealing any needs for repairs or replacements before you close on a home. A home inspection will help limit the number of surprises you will discover after you move in.

 For the home seller:

A Pre-Listing Home Inspection will help eliminate last minute repairs that could delay a closing. This allows the seller to become aware of and repair property conditions prior to listing your home for sale.

What if the inspection reveals a problem?

We take photographs of all damage and report it to you within 24 - 48 hours. Most repairs or deficiencies found should not cause alarm or result in a lost sale. 

Do I have to be there when the home is inspected?

It is not necessary that you are on property but it is preferred and recommended. Our field team of inspectors are able to provide an on-site verbal summary to you and your realtor at the conclusion of the inspection. 


4-Point Inspection

HONEST 4-POINT INSPECTIONS.

The 4-Point Inspection is often a required inspection in order to obtain (or maintain) insurance coverage. This is especially pertinent when insuring an older home and include the following 4 key points: 

  1. HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning)

  2. Electrical wiring and panels

  3. Plumbing connections and fixtures

  4. Roof

A 4- point home inspection can make the difference between saving a little on home insurance policies and thousands. In fact, the majority of insurers and home loan programs won't even consider issuing a policy without an inspection by a licensed professional.

When you hire our team of experienced and licensed four point home inspectors, we produce reports according to what the insurance carriers want. Most insurers look for facts about specific features of your home, and nothing more. We tailor our reporting to each insurer's preference to ensure your interests are not lost in all of the paper work.

Mold Inspection

UNEQUIVOCAL MOLD INSPECTIONS

If you have an existing home and smell mold or see certain spots on walls we can help. We can do a partial Mold inspection which focuses on certain areas. We also perform complete Mold Inspections to the entire house, which will involve multiple samples being sent to the our certified laboratory analysis to address areas of concern. We take air samples and/or physical swabs of any suspected area and send the sample(s) to be analyzed by InspectorLab.

First, we pinpoint the problem areas in your home or office. Where is the mold growth? Crawlspace, attic, or hidden in a bathroom wall? All of these are common locations for mold growth.

A particulate counter is used throughout the mold inspection to locate probable areas of growth based on temperature, humidity, and particulate levels.

Second, we determine the cause of the mold growth. Mold requires water to grow; therefore, we look for a source of excessive moisture.

Common sources include: Plumbing leaks, High humidity, Roof leaks, and Window Leaks

Third, We outline our recommendations along with expert advice and consultation specifically tailored to your unique situation. The recommendations will include the cause and origin of the mold growth and outline a sampling plan if necessary to collect samples

 

 WDO Inspection

precise wDO Inspections

What exactly is a WDO inspection?
When obtaining a mortgage or a mortgage guarantee to finance the purchase of a home, you most likely will be required to obtain a WDO inspection by the bank, the mortgage company, or the guarantor (FHA, VA, HUD, etc.)

Although commonly referred to as a “termite inspection,” WDO stands for “wood-destroying organisms,” and a proper WDO inspection looks for evidence of infestation by termites (both subterranean and dry wood types), wood decay, wood-devouring beetles, as well as evidence of past infestations, damage to wood, or conditions conducive to infestations, and evidence of past treatments.
