Residential Home Inspection
If you are looking to buy or sell your home, it is imperative that you have a professional home inspection. A home inspection covers every aspect of a property’s condition and can alert you of existing or potential problems. Residential home inspections are also essential for sellers before their home hits the market to ensure they are not blind sided by a deal breaking defect. Home inspections can also reveal issues a builder needs to fix prior to the expiration of their 1 year warranty on new home construction.
Whether you’re preparing your home to be sold or getting ready to make an offer on a home, it’s important to know if you’re dealing with a termite problem. During a termite inspection, our trained termite and pest control specialists will inspect your home for termite damage and signs of previous termite treatments. Once the termite inspection is complete, we’ll provide a detailed report with information about our findings. If a termite issue is discovered, it can be treated or you can negotiate your offer appropriately.
Sewer Scope Test
Sewer Scope Inspections should be done on all homes. It is recommended on homes built before 1980. With this type of inspection, we are able to detect damaged pipes, signs of extreme corrosion, blockages and more. A sewer scope is included on all our premium home inspection packages.
We incorporate infrared technology in all our inspections. Thermal imaging can reveal issues and defects not recognizable by the naked eye. Our standard home inspection includes a thermal image of the electrical distribution panel to determine if any of the electrical components are emitting heat and likely to fail in the near future. A full thermal imaging review of all living areas is included in our premium home inspection package. This review can reveal where air is leaking into the home around windows and doors as well as locating areas with missing or insufficient levels of insulation.
Irrigation systems have become more common and these systems are an integral part of any landscape plan. We can inspect these systems to ensure they are functioning properly. Sprinkler system inspections are available as an add-on service to an existing home inspection.
If your property includes detached buildings, we can inspect those as well! Whether the detached building includes utilities services or not, this inspection can be included as an add-on service to an existing inspection.
In most rural areas, septic systems serve as the on-site waste treatment system. These systems must be properly maintained on a regular basis to ensure their continued function and reliability. Our septic system inspection will include identifying the type and location of the system and a visual inspection of the septic tank components (tank opening, inlet and outlet baffles) and drain field. We will measure the waste material in the tank and will stress the system with water to observe water flow through the system. Septic system inspections are available as an add-on service to an existing inspection.
Swimming pools and spas can be enjoyable additions to any home. For prospective home buyers of properties with pool and/ or spas, these systems should also be inspected for safety and function. Not only should the pool and it’s equipment be inspected for proper operation, but the equipment should also be inspected to ensure it conforms to the proper safety parameters. Other pool and spa concerns include needed repairs or improvements to pumps and heaters, liners, plumbing problems, pool barriers, decking and more.
