General Home Inspection
The General Home Inspection abides by the Standards of Practice (SOP) as stated by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). The inspection typically takes between 2-3 hours, depending on the size of the home. During the inspection, we identify issues that affect the home’s safely accessible major areas, including:
✓ Heating and Cooling
We use a Moisture Meter during our inspections to measure levels of moisture in different areas of the home. Areas with high moisture levels can indicate possible mold growth, so they are important to find.
A Re-Inspection can be scheduled as a follow-up to the General Home Inspection. During the inspection, we revisit the home and check that all agreed-upon repairs and other changes have been completed.
Pool & Spa Inspections
We also offer Pool & Spa Inspections. It is important to have your home’s pool inspected for any safety concerns and to ensure that all components are in good working order. We check for possible defects and offer our advice about useful upgrades.
Manufactured/Modular Home Inspections
Despite their manufacturing process, modular homes are essentially the same as homes that are built on-site. They are treated the same under the law, and their basic structural features are almost indistinguishable from site-built homes, once assembled. Manufactured homes are relatively small, inexpensive, mobile residences that require a smaller commitment than is required by modular and site-built homes.
Specialty Tools Used
Certified Level-I Thermographer
We use a thermal imaging device as needed to assist with the home inspection. It can help us pick up possible problem areas with heat loss and moisture prone areas. It is also a great added tool to any home inspection.
The moisture meter is used when there are visible signs of previous moisture issues and in areas that are vulnerable to leaks and high moisture, such as bathrooms.
We use a crawlbot to inspect inaccessible raised foundations.
we utilize an aerial drone and collect high-quality photographs from above the property to give you a better understanding of the roof’s condition and the home’s surrounding area.
