Detailed Inspections

Inspections are performed on residential homes along with town homes, condominiums, new construction, renovations and commercial buildings.  I will inspect the structure, systems and components of the home and compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and photos of any issues I've discovered.

Thoroughly Researched Reports

Typical home inspections take between 3-4 hours and your detailed PDF format report will be delivered to you electronically within 24-48 hours after the inspection.  You will also be provided with a link to view your report online.  Some home inspectors will provide you with a report right there at the end of the inspection...In my opinion this is something to beware of.  Once returning to my office I research items found to give you the best assessment of my findings.  Home inspectors are not experts in any particular field.  We never stop learning.

Plumbing

Examine all visible water supply, waste and vent piping.  Check the integrity, size and age of the water heater, test sump pumps and sewage ejectors to insure they function properly to avoid the possibility of a one day flooded basement.

HVAC

Examine furnace (heating) and condensing unit (air conditioning) systems.  Check any boilers, radiant heating systems, electric baseboard heating systems and most importantly the proper venting of carbon monoxide combustion gases.

Electrical

Examine electrical service entrance and breaker panel ensuring the the panel has not become over-loaded.  The entire visible electrical system is also checked.  Many "do-it-yourselfers" have done their own electrical repairs which could result in a fire.

Roof

Examine visually the type and age of roof shingles and make sure they are installed properly and note defects.  Roof flashing, skylights, and gutters are also checked to ensure water repels from the house as is should and keeps the water out.

Exterior

Examine windows, doors, siding, soffits and downspouts for functionality and ability to repel moisture.  

Interior

Examine ceilings, walls and flooring for structural cracks or moisture penetrations.  Inspect fireplace and damper and note signs of excessive creosote build-up which could result in a fire.  Enter attic to closely examine proper air circulations, make sure bathroom fans do not discharge in attic, find evidences of possible mold and uncover secrets that the attic may hold.

Pre-listing Inspection

 A pre-listing inspection occurs before the seller of the home lists the property for sale.  The inspection can identify potential problems that can be remedied before the house is listed.  The report can also be an effective sales tool documenting the homes good features. 

Investor/landlord Inspection

 An investor/landlord inspection can be utilized during the pre-purchase phase and also periodically to provide the investor/landlord with up to date details of their properties condition.
