Buyer Home Inspections
It's always a good idea to know the condition of a home before you purchase it. With a home inspection performed by an InterNACHI certified home inspector, you can protect against potentially costly future repairs or even find items that may need your immediate attention. A buyer home inspection goes over everything from the foundation to the roof and all that's in-between.
We'll send a certified inspector to perform a complete check of your property before you list it! It's always better to know what problems might be lurking ahead of time to avoid costly delays. A Move-In-Certified inspection will let potential buyers know that you've done your due diligence, putting minds at ease knowing you're dealing in good faith.
New Construction Inspections
Having a new home built? We can perform an inspection before the drywall goes up to ensure that electrical, plumbing, vents, etc. have been installed properly. Before closing, we'll come back for a final check before you sign the paperwork. New construction inspections make sure that defects are found before you take possession of the home.
1-Year Warranty Inspections
Did you recently buy a new construction home? Your home builder most likely provided you with a one year warranty on most issues. During the 11th month, it's a good idea to have a certified home inspector perform a full inspection of the home to be sure that any major defects are found and fixed before the builders warranty expires.
Annual Maintenance Inspections
Whether your home is new or old, it requires regular maintenance to prevent large and costly repairs down the road once things completely break. Our certified inspector will take a look at all the areas of your home that require regular maintenance or may wear out such as the roof, flashing, paint, appliances, hvac, windows and doors.

Frequently Asked Questions
A home inspection is a visual examination of the home's major structure, systems and components that are visible and safely accessible. The inspection will allow our team to produce a written report including pictures/videos of each item covered during the inspection, with major defects called out in an easy to understand summary. Our inspectors meet or exceed InterNACHI's Standards of Practice on every home inspection we perform.
A home purchase is typically the largest investment a person will make in their lifetime. Because of this fact, it is important for the buyer to understand what defects that might be lurking in their new home. A home inspector will attempt to discover and document each of these defects ranging from small repairs or replacements to larger safety or health concerns. Additionally, many mortgage providers require a home inspection to be performed before a loan can be approved.
This can vary greatly depending on the age and square footage of the home, number of bathrooms, windows, doors, out buildings, location and whether or not any ancillary services are added to the standard home inspection. Typically the we tell our clients to expect the inspection to take a minimum of two hours and depending on the factors mentioned before, up to eight or even more.
Most buyers will have their home inspection performed after their offer has been accepted and before the closing date. It is best to schedule your inspection as soon as the offer is accepted so that there will be plenty of time remaining before your closing date should unforeseen circumstances delay your scheduled inspection or should the inspection reveal defects that need immediate repair before closing.
We prefer that the client and or their agent be present during the entire inspection process. This allows us to point out specific items of interest in the home, in person. Additionally, you may learn important information about the home's maintenance, systems and components from our inspector during the process.
The Buy-Back Guarantee is a program offered by InterNACHI that we participate in. It allows InterNACHI to buy back your home within 90 days of closing if our inspector misses something major on your home inspection report and would would like to sell the home rather than make the repairs yourself.
