Additional Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

To help you sell your home successfully, we can perform a full inspection of the property before you make the listing or show the home to prospective buyers. We’ll give you a detailed assessment of the home’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing you an opportunity to address deficiencies that may otherwise show up in a Buyer’s Inspection—which could potentially lead to stalled negotiations.
4 Point Inspection

4 Point Inspection

For a 4 Point Inspection, we’ll inspect a home’s HVAC system, electrical system, plumbing system, and roofing system. This limited scope inspection service is often required by insurance agencies to ensure that minimum property standards are met before issuing a policy to prospective homeowners.
New Construction Phase Inspections

New Construction Phase Inspections

This inspection service helps to keep construction on a new home in check by providing a comprehensive assessment of the property’s condition at several different build phases. From the pre-foundation work to the final walkthrough, we’ll be able to identify potential deficiencies before they can develop into costlier and more time consuming issues during later phases of construction.
11th Month Warranty Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Before your new home’s warranty expires, you need to have the property professionally inspected to make sure that there aren’t defective components that you don’t already know about. If defects are identified, and those components are covered under the terms of the home’s warranty, you may be able to save a substantial amount of money that you would otherwise be putting toward repair costs.
Loan Draw Inspection

Loan Draw Inspection

We can help ensure that the terms of a construction loan are being adhered to throughout the build by conducting a Loan Draw Inspection. We’ll begin by going over the loan agreement, familiarizing ourselves with the exact terms so that we know what to look for when we inspect the build site. We’ll then inspect the build at several different phases, assessing current progress and the materials on site to confirm whether or not each draw request is being used responsibly.
Home Maintenance Inspection

Home Maintenance Inspection

This inspection service will help you manage your home’s maintenance, revealing potential deficiencies in the property’s construction and various mechanical systems. We’ll provide a full report of our findings, including tips for addressing and prioritizing the home’s current maintenance needs.
Re-inspections

Re-inspections

After arrangements have been made for the seller of the home to carry out your repair and project requests, we can return to the property to perform a Re-inspection. This inspection will be focused entirely on the components that have been repaired or replaced, ensuring that the original issue is no longer present and that no damage occurred while repairs were being conducted.
WDO/Termite Inspection

WDO/Termite Inspection

For this inspection service, we’ll make sure that your prospective home isn’t damaged due to termite infestations that occurred under current or previous ownership. We’ll thoroughly inspect the entire home, providing a full inspection report that will detail any damage we found that was caused by termites or other wood-destroying organisms.
Radon Testing

Radon Testing

Even if a home has an active radon issue, residents would be none the wiser without having the home professionally tested. This is because radon can’t be detected normally due to it being both odorless and invisible—however, because radon is known to cause serious health issues over time in exposed individuals, it’s critically important to have a home tested before moving in so that mitigation can be scheduled if necessary.
