Home Inspection Done Right
We Come To You
We Inspect And Provide Report.
House Inspection with You as the Focus
You might be surprised to learn that the home isn’t our primary focus.
In reality, you the client are our focus.
What that means is we want a win-win situation between the buyer and seller to facilitate the transaction.
Look over the shoulders of our home inspectors. Ask questions. Make sure you are comfortable with every aspect of the house so that you can sleep at night. No matter if the house is brand new or sixty years old, every house has something to talk about.
New Home Inspections
Don’t think that inspections are only for older homes. Did you know that even new homes can benefit from inspection reports?
An experienced inspector can provide a progress inspection on new homes, even as they are being built. Foundation reports, framing, and mechanical inspections are all useful, even if it’s just for peace of mind. Our inspectors see hundreds if not thousands of homes and know what is proper and what is out of the ordinary.
Four Biggest Deal Killers
Here are the four most common and serious issues that are discovered during a typical inspection:
- Furnace issues – replacing a furnace can cost a lot of money. An older furnace can also lead to larger energy bills, and can even mean the presence of asbestos. Consider newer generations of furnaces that can save energy and money.
- Roofing – an old or decaying roof can be a major headache down the road. Know if you’re getting a home with quality architectural or asphalt shingles.
- Structural problems – while less common, the presence of them can lead to other more serious issues down the road. These include cracking in the walls, soil movement, moisture control and monitoring.
- Mold, moisture, mildew – even in warm and dry climates, many things can cause internal moisture damage leading to mold and mildew. Both can be extremely hazardous to your health. Causes can be leaks or improper installation of siding and synthetics, chipboards, etc.
Essential for Buyers and Sellers
While the need for inspections is obvious now for the buyer of a home, it is important for sellers of a home to know what the true cost is of a potential problem.
Did you know that buyers typically negotiate twice the amount of the actual repair cost? Our experienced pros will make sure you are only responsible for the true cost.
