Additional Inspection Services
If you’re preparing to sell your home, we can help make the entire process more straightforward and hassle-free by providing a full property inspection prior to a listing. We’ll assess the entire structure in order to obtain a factual representation of the home’s condition, informing you about any defects that we find. With this knowledge at your disposal, you’ll be able to make repairs as necessary and get a better handle on upcoming negotiations so that you can move toward a successful sale.
New Construction Inspection
Just because something is new, doesn’t mean that it is free from blemishes—or even significant defects. Many hands are responsible for constructing a home, and it’s practically a guarantee that errors will occur along the way. Before the builder’s final walkthrough of the property, we can perform an unbiased inspection that will uncover existing issues so that you can work out solutions while negotiations are still ongoing and contingencies are still in place.
New Construction Phase Inspections
Homes are built from the ground up, and keeping tabs on that process from the get-go and all the way through to the end can be of massive benefit to the home-buyer. Phase inspections are typically scheduled multiple times throughout a build—starting at the pre-foundation work and concluding just before the builder’s final walkthrough. This approach allows our inspectors to identify issues while they’re still visible and accessible, making it easier for the builders to correct, and helping to ensure that deficiencies aren’t covered up that will become problematic later on down the line.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
If you just bought a newly constructed home within the past year, it should still be protected by the builder’s warranty. Have us inspect the home before the warranty runs out so that we can diagnose existing issues that may be covered—potentially saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repair work!
Home Maintenance Inspection
A well-maintained home provides assurance that an investment will last for the long haul and not lose significant value due to deterioration and damage. For this inspection service, we’ll inspect the property from top to bottom in order to assess its existing maintenance needs. A full report of our findings will be provided, including detailed insights about specific home maintenance strategies that you should consider.
Commercial Property Inspection
Our team of inspection professionals is well-versed in the finer points of commercial construction, offering this inspection service to help you and your business partners make a more protected investment. We’re able to evaluate the existing condition of most types of commercial real estate, ranging from humble storefronts to hospitals, churches, restaurants—and even large industrial facilities.
Loan Draw Inspection
Failure to comply with the terms of a construction loan can lead to a messy situation, often culminating in lengthy litigation. This inspection service will help to keep new home construction moving forward without running into legal roadblocks. We’ll inspect the construction site multiple times to assess the materials stored on-site and to look over the state of the build, ensuring that the terms of the loan aren’t being violated at any given time.
After you’ve received the results from your home inspection, you may choose to request repairs and other projects while negotiating terms with the seller. If the two of you arrive at an agreement, we can perform a follow-up inspection to make sure that any repaired or replaced components are defect-free.
Water purity is important for the residents of the home, and this inspection service will determine whether or not your prospective home’s water supply is safe for daily use. Water samples will be taken to a local laboratory where they can be tested for lead, coliform bacteria, and a host of other contaminants.
If you’re breathing in mold spores while trying to enjoy your living space, then your home is not as healthy as it should be. We can test your home for mold, conducting a visual inspection to find clear and obvious signs of mold growth. We can also collect surface and air samples, sending them off to a local laboratory where they will be tested for an estimate of spore concentration and to determine what types of molds may be present.
Our certified radon testers will use state-of-the-art technology to take precise radon measurements inside your current or prospective home. Radon is invisible and odorless, and you won’t get very far trying to detect it without the assistance of professionals who are trained using the proper equipment. As radon is a known carcinogen, it is imperative to have the home tested as soon as possible for your health and peace of mind.
For this inspection service, a specially designed camera is inserted down into the home’s sewer system, allowing us to look for damage that can’t ordinarily be identified. Problems with wastewater disposal can be a major financial burden for the homeowner, and we want to help you get ahead of potential issues before you close on a home purchase.
We can also use this camera to locate the private septic tank or the lateral sewer line that is maintained by the city, revealing potential blockages that may need to be discussed with officials who oversee wastewater management.
We offer this service to help our clients ensure that a contracted construction project is being conducted safely, efficiently, and to an overall high standard. We’ll effectively be your voice, protecting your interests by ensuring that no corners are cut and that the work is being done correctly from start to finish.
If you’ve recently been through the wringer with a construction contractor who was responsible for substandard work, then we can help you file a claim. We’ll talk with you at length about the nature of the work and the associated issues, collecting the information needed to consult with lawyers and other experts so that we can draw up a claim that is likely to receive a response that satisfies your demands.
This inspection of a home’s septic system will be conducted by a vetted third-party contractor. The septic tank will be opened up to be investigated for damage, blockages, and other deficiencies. You’ll also be notified about the remaining capacity of the tank and whether or not it needs to be pumped in the days ahead.
A pool that is being included with your pending property purchase should be professionally inspected before a deal is final. We’ll evaluate the condition of the pool’s structure, whether it’s inground or above ground. We’ll also look over the accessory and mechanical components to determine if there are existing defects that need to be addressed in order for the pool to be deemed safe for use.
Sprinkler System Inspections
For this inspection service, we’ll make sure that a home’s sprinkler system is installed correctly and functions properly. We’ll be looking for issues that could lead to water loss, including defective sprinkler heads, leaky valves, busted lines, and other visible defects.
