Home Inspection Services
There are many times when an inspection can give you an advantage. If you are buying a home, getting a home
inspection means you know about any problems and their solutions before you move in. If you are selling a home,
getting a home inspection means you know you are complying with full disclosure laws, and means you can consider
selecting contractors rather than waiting for the buyer to do so.
If you have recently purchased a new home from a builder and the one year "builder warranty" is about to expire, our home inspection services can let you know whether the builder/contractor did the job correctly. If you've owned your home for several years, a home inspection can provide you with valuable information about needed repairs and necessary maintenance.
Getting a thorough professional inspection for your home, whether you use a real estate agent or go for sale by owner, is always a good idea. All homes have both positive and negatives: we help you answer "how serious are my the problems," using up to date inspection methods for the most accurate assessment of your property. We also offer Radon Gas testing. Radon is the second leading cause of cancer in the U.S., so we want to ensure that it is not a problem in any dwelling. We help you find out what problems are critical, which problems are serious, which problems are minor, so you can make necessary repairs right away. The more you know about your home, and what to fix, the more prepared you will be for any negotiation.
The best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have a professional home inspecton. As a licensed, certified and experienced home inspector, I'm trained to identify problem areas both large and small that may be overlooked by the previous owners and to identify those issues that require immediate attention.
1-Year Warranty Inspection
Most builders provide a one year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of correction for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain a home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before the grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.
All homes need regular maintenance and a thorough inspection can help protect the value of one of your largest investments. If no problems are found, you will have peace of mind in knowing that you are keeping up with the maintenance needs of your home.
