Home Inspection

A residential inspection covers the house from top to bottom. The inspector will inspect the roof, exterior, grounds, and additional buildings. Moving inside of the house, everything from the attic all the way down to the basement or crawl space gets a thorough evaluation. This includes all major appliance, electrical systems, plumbing systems, insulation, and all fixtures, doors, and windows.

Condominium Inspection

A condo inspection starts off a little different being the exterior is maintained by the HOA. Everything from a 4-plex to a high rise building can have a condominium. If the situation suites, the exterior is looked over and evaluated for future improvements the HOA may need to deliver. Moving inside the interior is treated like a Residential Inspection, top-to-bottom, front-to-back, everything from the windows to the water heater is gone through with no detail overlooked.

Manufactured Home Inspection

These can be very similar as a residential inspection and the exterior and interior is completely inspected just the same. The difference being the construction methods used for a manufactured home require different inspection techniques. Specific areas such as the crawl space, attic, and heating can vary drastically with a manufactured home. There are also different codes and safety measures considered with these construction practices.

Builder’s Warranty Inspection

Most builder’s offer a warranty on a new home. Before it expires, it is important to have a warranty inspection completed. Our inspection is based on observations of the visible and apparent condition of the home, including its major systems and components. After your inspection you will receive a report with any material defects. Then you can take the steps to hold your builder to the warranties while they’re still in force.
