Buyer’s Inspections

This Inspection service is a full assessment of all of the accessible and visible components of your home. A professional inspector will examine your home for any flaws, defects, or needed repairs and include them in a comprehensive list delivered to you within 24 hours. A Buyer’s Inspection is a must for anyone looking to buy a home and should never be skipped before closing on a home.

Pre-listing / Sellers Inspection

If you are thinking of selling your home it’s always best to have it fully inspected by a professional before listing it on the market. This way you get a detailed report on your home’s current condition and make any needed repairs that could hurt your selling power. A current inspection report will also help to ease negotiations with prospective buyers so you can close quickly.

New Construction

No newly constructed home is without its issues. Many of these issues could go undiscovered for years and end up costing you much more. This inspection is performed before the final walkthrough with your contractor giving you the chance to find faults or defects with the home construction before you have to pay out of pocket.

Home Maintenance Inspection

This is a great yearly service for homeowners that wish to maintain the condition of their home. The inspector will alert you to problems before they become much bigger and help identify issues that may arise later. Not only can this save you money but it also gives you the information to retain and even grow the value of your home.

4-Point Inspection 

This service is generally required by insurance companies before granting coverage and will examine the roofing, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC.


After the initial inspection has been made and all the issues noted in the report have been addressed the inspector will return to make sure the repairs have been done properly and your money was well spent.

Water Testing

An inspector will take samples of your home’s water supply and have it tested for any harmful elements or contaminants. It’s always best to be safe and make certain that your water is safe and potable.

Mold Testing

Mold is an all too common problem in many homes. Having an inspector perform a mold test will alert you to any mold growth as well as areas with moisture intrusion that may be susceptible to mold.

Dye Test For Septic

By performing a dye test we can make certain that there is no seepage from your septic system into your lawn or home.

5 Point Inspection

This will concentrate on the major system of the home with little focus on cosmetics. A professional will thoroughly examine the plumbing, HVAC, electrical panels, roof, and structural systems.
