The “Essential” Home Inspection

Our “Essential” Home Inspection service will help you identify any safety concerns, defects, or maintenance needs; and provide you with valuable knowledge regarding the home’s primary systems and components. A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, its major systems, and components such as structure, foundation, roof, interior, exterior, heating, cooling, ventilation, electrical, plumbing systems, and components.

We encourage our clients to attend their inspection whenever possible, this is a great opportunity for you to ask questions and gain valuable knowledge while we’re onsite. If you won’t be attending, rest assured that we are just a phone call away and will work with you to answer any questions you have in a clear and concise manner.

Once your inspection has been completed, a detailed inspection report with pictures will be emailed to you the same day, this report will help to prioritize repairs and maintain your home moving forward.

pool and spa Inspection

Detached garage

This service provides an inspection of a detached garage’s interior, exterior, roof, structure, foundation, and electrical components. Additional fees may apply if the detached garage also has a plumbing system or living space inside.

Asbestos screening

$20

The mere presence of asbestos in your home is not hazardous when left undisturbed. Generally, material in good condition will not release asbestos fibers; however, disturbing it may create a health hazard where none existed before.

Mold Screening

$20

When looking for an individual to evaluate your home for potential indoor mold growth, it is helpful to use someone not involved in the remediation process. That is what we offer, an unbiased visual mold screening without a conflict of interest.
