Additional Inspection Services
This inspection service is the perfect way to ensure that the sale of your home goes off without a hitch. Before you create a listing, we’ll comprehensively inspect your home for signs of safety issues, damage, or other deficiencies. Knowledge of these potential issues will put you in a position to make any repairs you deem necessary, while also giving you a chance to keep prospective buyers up to speed before they schedule their own inspection.
New Construction Inspection
As construction on a new home approaches the completion date, you should really consider bringing in a third-party inspector to assess the condition of the property. Before the builder’s final walkthrough, we’ll arrive on-site to conduct a highly detailed inspection that will reveal potential issues that you need to be aware of so that you can have them resolved before agreeing to terms on a final purchase
11th Month Warranty Inspection
When you schedule this inspection before the builder’s warranty has expired on your new home, you’ll be doing yourself a tremendous favor. We’ll thoroughly inspect the home’s readily accessible areas to look for defective components or safety issues that need to be brought to your attention. If those items happen to be covered by your home’s warranty, you will have saved yourself a potentially substantial amount of money on necessary repair and maintenance work.
Loan Draw Inspection
A Loan Draw Inspection will help to prevent new construction on a home from being disrupted due to the terms of a loan agreement not being fulfilled. After taking a look at the agreed upon budget, we’ll regularly visit the job site to evaluate the materials stored on-site and the current state of construction—ensuring that disbursed funds are being used properly by the builders and that the work is being completed in a timely manner. HUD draw and non-draw inspections are also available for renovations of commercial properties.
Re-Inspections are offered to help home-buyers attain a greater sense of assurance with the condition of a prospective investment after our original home inspection revealed one or more deficiencies. Once you’ve been informed that repair work has been completed, we can come back to the property to re-evaluate the previously deficient areas—ensuring that the repairs are up to standard and that no new issues have appeared.
Exposure to radon can cause a multitude of health problems, and because radon is odorless and invisible, it can often exist in homes undetected. We’re able to comprehensively test a home for this dangerous compound, measuring radon levels to determine if they are below a safe threshold or if radon mitigation should be recommended.
This inspection service will assess a home for damage inflicted by termites and other wood-destroying insects. We’ll carefully inspect each readily accessible area of the property, providing the client with a full report of our findings. If termite damage was identified, prospective homebuyers will be in a position to negotiate repairs with the seller of the home—potentially saving themselves a substantial amount of money.
In the event the property has a well, water samples and/or testing are available upon request. These samples will be taken to a local laboratory to be tested for heavy metal compounds and bacterial contaminants that could be harmful to a resident’s health if discovered to be concentrated above a certain threshold.
Light Commercial Property Inspection
If you’re thinking about investing in a light commercial property such as a strip mall, storefront, office space, or small warehouse, then it’s a good idea to schedule this inspection service. We’ll come to the property to conduct an investigative inspection, identifying potential deficiencies that an investor should have knowledge of before moving forward with a real estate transaction.
“Walk & Talk” Inspection
This discounted inspection service is similar to our full Buyer’s Inspection, except the process will be expedited and a full written report will not be provided. This is perfect for clients who just need a quick rundown of the property’s strengths and weaknesses—we’ll walk you through the home, discussing our findings as we go so that you have a good idea of what to expect from a prospective investment.
