Pre-Purchase Inspection

Designed for the Home Buyer

Buying a home is likely the most expensive thing anyone will ever buy.  This can be a very stressful time and the best way to ensure you invest wisely is by having a certified home inspector examine the property.  A professional pre-purchase inspection can help alleviate the stress involved in the buying process.  This is the most thorough inspection we offer and it is designed to keep the buyer informed by inspecting every system of the home as well as how the house performs during harsh weather.  You owe it to yourself to make sure the home you purchase lives up to your expectations.  My final report is delivered within 24 hours will be a thorough and unbiased description of all the systems in your home.  There is no better way to gain peace-of-mind during this process.



New Construction Inspection

Designed for Phases of Construction

Constructing a new home is a complicated and lengthy process that typically involves many contractors and trades people.  Your dream home can quickly turn into a nightmare if any one of these contractors makes an honest mistake or uses sub-standard materials or methods.  As construction projects near their completion date, it is important to inspect all the work that was constructed to ensure that it was done per the plans and specifications, and to your standards.  It is significantly easier to fix a problem during the construction phase rather than wait til you move in and file a warranty claim.  Let me complete periodic inspections of the construction process or complete your punch list once construction is completed.  There is no better way to give you peace of mind during this stressful time.

Home Warranty (11-Month) Inspection

Designed for the Owner of Newly Constructed Homes

Most new homes come with a variety of warranties for the major systems and components of the house.  To get the full enjoyment of your new home, let me complete an 11-month inspection to see if you have any warranty claims that could be filed prior to the expiration of the warranty.  This is small price to pay considering the cost of maintenance or future repairs that could reveal themselves later.



Annual Home Maintenance & Safety Inspection

Designed for the Home Owner

Even the most vigilant home owner will miss some important, small or hidden defects.  An Annual Home Maintenance Inspection should be your first line of defense against long-term and expensive damage from minor issues that could be addressed before they cause serious damage.  In addition to your own home, this kind of inspection is a great way to keep track of rental properties and vacation homes when you don’t have the ability to monitor problems as they develop.

infrared thermograPhy

Infrared thermography is a technique used to detect hidden leaks (water and air) in walls, floors and ceilings.  It uses an infrared camera and moisture meter to detect changes in temperature and moisture.  I use this at my discretion during every inspection but will do the whole house as an added service.
