Keys to a new house after thorough home inspection services

Pre-Listing Inspection

By the time you’ve listed your home for sale, we want you to have full confidence that prospective buyers aren’t going to back out due to surprise issues in the property’s construction. We’ll help you get there by thoroughly inspecting the home ahead of time, identifying existing deficiencies so that you have the opportunity to remedy them before a Buyer’s Inspection has taken place.

New Construction Inspection

This inspection service for new home construction must be performed prior to the builder’s final walkthrough of the property. We’ll carefully investigate every component that can be safely accessed, looking for improper installation of materials, unsuitable material choice, and general areas of defective construction. You can take our findings back to the prospective seller so that they can work on resolving the issues while the builders are still available.

New construction phase of a house

New Construction Phase Inspections

Every phase of new home construction is an opportunity for oversights and mistakes to occur, no matter how seasoned and reputable the builders may be. We can help mitigate the fallout from existing issues by inspecting the home at each critical phase of construction—from the foundation pour to the tacking on of the final trim. By identifying deficiencies at each phase, they can be more easily and quickly addressed by the builders, and you’ll have greater confidence in the quality of your future home.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Have you recently purchased a newly constructed home? If so, you’re likely to find that you are financially protected for certain repairs under the builder’s 1-year warranty agreement. We’ll inspect the home within this first year, diagnosing defective systems and structural components so that you can consult the warranty agreement to determine if you’re exempt from full financial liability.

Maintenance tools used before scheduling home inspection services

Home Maintenance Inspection

Home maintenance needs to be performed regularly by the homeowner—in fact, it’s a task that should always be in the back of your mind. To help you understand your home’s existing needs, we’ll perform this inspection service annually. We’ll investigate the home’s structure and mechanical systems for signs of wear and tear that necessitate improvement—ranging from simple tasks such as filter changes, to bigger jobs like updating plumbing or repairing the roof. A full report of our findings featuring specific maintenance tips will be provided.

Did the seller of your prospective home agree to address your repair and project requests before a real estate transaction proceeds? When you get the call that the repairs and improvements are complete, relay that message to us as soon as possible so that we can schedule a re-inspection. For a re-inspection, we’ll be returning to property to primarily inspect the components that have been fixed—ensuring that the property is in good enough condition for you to be comfortable with moving forward.

Thermal imaging camera used while preforming home inspection services

Infrared Thermography Inspection

This inspection service is a comprehensive thermal imaging evaluation of your prospective home. Using a high-tech thermal imaging camera, we’ll look at a multitude of home components in the infrared light spectrum. This will reveal to us disparities in temperature that are indicative of hidden issues such as moisture intrusion, electrical hotspots, and defective insulation.
