Inspection Overview

A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so you can make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take between two and three hours. Ideally, you will accompany our inspector during the consultation, to visually reinforce your written report.

We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes clear descriptions of what we found with any problem areas noted. Our inspectors also provide a free telephone consultation after your inspection.

A thorough home inspection will include the following:

~ Roofing Components (shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, trim and gutters, drip edges, skylights, downspouts, and other visible roof related items)

~ Plumbing and Fixtures (water pressure, water distribution system, hose bibs, sinks and faucets, bath/showers and toilets, sanitary system, and other plumbing system components)


~ Heating and Cooling Systems (furnace, air cleaning parts, ductwork, electronic monoxide testing, electric gas sniffer testing, air conditioner and lines, and other visible related HVAC components)

~ Basements, Crawl Spaces, and Foundation
(insulation, ventilation, posts, vapor barriers, utility attachment, structural items, floors and walls, and columns)

~ Environmental Issues (visual inspection for signs of radon, mold, lead, asbestos, termies, wood destroying organisms, water intrusion, and recommendations for further resting or mitigation)

~ Attics (insulation, ventilation, rafters, joists and collar ties, trusses, wiring attachments, and other visible related items)


~ Interior Features (floors and ceilings, walls, stairs (if applicable) and banisters, finishes, sinks, cabinets, shelving, built-in appliances, fireplaces, smoke detectors and safety-related items, and other visible interior-related components)

~ Electrical Systems (service entry and clearances, service panel, switches and outlets, visible wiring and junction boxes, grounding system, recalled, obsolete, unsafe and other related electrical components)

~ Exterior Structures (siding materials, attachments, windows, doors, sashes and lintels, vents, entryways, decks/porches and other visible exterior related components)
