Builder Warranty Inspection

Most builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of the home. Near the end of the warranty we can assist with a final “punch-list” of items to present to the contractor

Pre-Purchase Inspection

Provides the buyer peace of mind and some insight as to the condition of the home and what, if any, corrections or repairs may be needed. We want to insure that your home is in favorable operating condition before you move in, and you have some idea of what may be required in the future.

New Construction Inspection

As your new home nears the final stages of construction, an inspection may bring attention to areas that should be corrected prior to moving in. It is easier and more time efficient to address these issues while areas of the home are un-furnished and accessible and you have the attention of the contractor.

Pool inspections allow you to learn the condition of your pool and provide insight into improvements or repair that would be good to perform.

Pre-List Inspection

Conducted prior to listing your house on the market. This provides insight into areas of enhancement or repair that potential buyers might expect or request. It is assumed that if conditions or situations are discovered by the inspector, the buyers inspector will also call attention to the same area. This will give the seller time and opportunity to make the corrections or find a contractor of their choice to perform the work. This inspection may save you from last minute negotiations or concessions to the buyer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does an inspection cover?

The inspector should ensure that their inspection and inspection report will meet all applicable requirements in your state if applicable and will comply with a well-recognized standard of practice and code of ethics. You should be able to request and see a copy of these items ahead of time and ask any questions you may have. If there are any areas you want to make sure are inspected, be sure to identify them up front.


How long have you been in business?

The inspector should be able to provide his or her history in the profession and perhaps even a few names as referrals. Newer inspectors can be very qualified, and many work with a partner or have access to more experienced inspectors to assist them in the inspection.


Are you specifically experienced in residential inspections?

Related experience in construction or engineering is helpful, but is no substitute for training and experience in the unique discipline of home inspection. If the inspection is for a commercial property, then this should be asked about as well.


Do you offer repairs or improvements based on the inspection?

Some inspector associations and state regulations allow the inspector to perform repair work on problems uncovered in the inspection. Other associations and regulations strictly forbid this as a conflict of interest.


How long will the inspection take?

The average on-site inspection time for a single inspector is 1 ½ to 3 hours depending on the condition and size of the property. Anything significantly less may not be enough time to perform a thorough inspection. Additional inspectors may be brought in for very large properties and buildings.

Ask to see samples and determine whether or not you can understand the inspector's reporting style and if the time parameters fulfill your needs. Most inspectors provide their full report within 24 hours of the inspection.


Can I attend the inspection?

This is a valuable educational opportunity, and an inspector's refusal to allow this should raise a red flag. Never pass up this opportunity to see your prospective home through the eyes of an expert.


Are you a member of a home inspector association?

There are many state and national associations for home inspectors. Request to see their membership ID, and perform whatever due diligence you deem appropriate.


Do you continue your education to stay on top of new codes?

One can never know it all, and the inspector's commitment to continuing education is a good measure of his or her professionalism and service to the consumer. This is especially important in cases where the home is much older or includes unique elements requiring additional or updated training.
