Residential Home Inspections
We strive to accurately represent the home to the buyer, and point out both the positive and negative features of the home. As our inspector moves through the home here is what you can expect.
The Home Interior
He will check electrical plugs and switches, doors and hardware, flooring, windows, walls and ceilings. He inspects all built in appliances and ensures that they are in proper working condition. He will operate the HVAC equipment based on the time of year and outside temperature - checking for proper operation and looking for any obvious problems with the units.
In addition he will check the functional flow of water supply to the sinks, bathtub, and toilets, looking for any leaks that could cause damage to cabinets and flooring. He will also locate the electrical panel, noting the size of the service supplied to the home and look for proper wiring configurations.
The Home Exterior
If accessible, our inspector will walk the roof the check the condition of the shingles, looking for soft spots in the decking, and checking the condition of the roof penetrations. Where present and accessible he will check the attic and crawl space looking for structural integrity and any signs of water intrusion.
He will examine the homes exterior, looking for any drainage issues that could cause water intrusion, and he will locate and identify the electrical and gas service entrances as well as the water source for the home.
Commercial Building Inspections
We are equipped and ready to serve business owners and commercial property investors through commercial building inspections. Our inspector is able to inspect store front building, office buildings, metal building structures, and more.
We provide the same care and detail for our commercial clients as we do for our residential home buyers. Our inspector will identify the good features of a property as well as pointing out any drawbacks that might cause problems for the business. His background in industrial construction allows him to view the building from multiple standards with his understanding of the building structure and mechanical systems.
