Home Inspection Services

Buying or Selling a Home?

Our thorough home buyer inspections provide you with a detailed analysis of the property's condition. We inspect every corner of the home, from the foundation to the roof, identifying potential issues that help you make informed decisions.

 

A Pre-Listing inspection can help you identify and address potential issues before putting your property on the market. This proactive approach can lead to a smoother selling process and instill confidence in potential buyers.

 

New Construction

Even newly built homes can have hidden issues. Our new construction inspections ensure that your dream home is built to the highest standards. This inspection provides you with peace of mind from day one. We also offer a discount on the 11-month warranty inspection for clients who hire us for their new construction inspection, returning later for the home warranty check.

 

Builders Warranty Inspection

For new builds, our one-year warranty inspections are designed to catch any issues that may have arisen since the initial construction and the home living through all four seasons. Don't let warranty deadlines pass without ensuring your home is free from defects.

 

Limited Partial Inspection

You do not need to pay for a whole home inspection if there are special circumstances. If you are concerned about a particular area, our Master Inspector can come and take a look at just a portion of the structure. If you notice something concerning in your home or hired a contractor to do work such as replace your windows or repair damage, get peace of mind that the work was done properly by having us to come and inspect the finished product. Protecting your investment and having a neutral opinion can make the difference between disaster and dream.

We can give you a list of recommended repairs and improvements that will prevent costly repairs and keep your home in tip top shape.
