Residential, Commercial and Ancillary Services

Residential Inspection

Our residential inspection is thorough and typically covers between 100 to 125+ different systems and components. When it comes to making a decision about one of the biggest and most important purchases you’ll ever make, the information and education provided by our inspection and report will be an invaluable asset. The inspection will meet and in most cases, exceed InterNACHI standards of practice. InterNACHI is the premier credentialing agency in the United States and Canada, and is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET), a national accrediting agency of the U.S. Department of Education (USDE).

All residential inspections include our buy-back guarantee, a 90-day gap home warranty, one-year Home Owner’s Network membership, home maintenance and safe some books, and much more.

Pre-Listing Seller Inspection

There are distinct advantages to having your home inspected prior to listing it for sale. Probably the foremost benefit is taking some of the stress out of selling your home. When you obtain an inspection prior to listing, surprises that might come up in a buyer’s inspection are mostly eliminated. You will have an active roll in the inspection process, and you can decide what repairs you are willing to do prior to a sale. Additionally, it provides the ultimate good-faith gesture for any prospective buyers. Additionally, it limits your disclosure liability. All of these reasons, and much more, help your sale proceed smoothly throughout the purchase negotiation process.

Repair Estimate Report

The Repair Pricer process is fast, easy, and guaranteed to help you make the right decisions when purchasing a home. Just upload your report, fill in your information and your repair estimate report will be returned to you within 24 hours, guaranteed. These estimate reports not only make the inspection report easy to understand in terms of dollars and cents, but they are also amazingly useful negotiation tools.

Repair Verification

When repairs are made based on the inspection report, it’s a good idea to have them re-inspected to ensure satisfactory completion. This will generate an additional written report of those summary items re-inspected.

Home Maintenance Inspection

A Home Maintenance Inspection is a great idea for both first-time and long-standing homeowners. By having your home inspected annually, you will be proactive in protecting your home and investment. Your annual maintenance inspection will allow you to fix small repair items, before they become big costly break-downs. An annual maintenance inspection will cover 100 – 125+ systems and components, very much like a regular home inspection.

Private Well System & Flow Test

An undamaged and fully operational water system is essential to any home. Well pump system and flow tests will give you a reference point to help you decide if further, more in-depth testing of the well, its depth, pumping equipment, water tanks and appurtenant systems and components should be done by a specialized contractor. The flow test will give an estimate of what the entire private well system produces at the fixtures. This end production is affected by the well, water pump, water tank, pump controls, supply piping, height of the building, strainers, and the condition of the fixtures. This inspection should help determine adequacy of the systems pressure, flow rate, and minimum yield for at least one fixture on the date of the inspection.

Aging in Place

Residential inspection that is centered around accessibility and safety for older homeowners and residents that want to stay in their homes as they age. Typically covers 80 to 120 different items, with a report on recommendations for making the home safer and more accessible. This inspection will meet and in most cases, exceed InterNACHI standards of practice. All aging-in-place inspections include a 90-day home warranty, one-year Home Owner’s Network membership, and a home maintenance book.

Commercial Inspection

We are accredited by CCPIA and our commercial inspections will meet and in most cases exceed the CCPIA Standards of Practice for commercial inspections. The commercial inspection will cover between 125 – 500 systems and components of the property. The inspection covers public areas, ingress, egress, parking, ADA and safety items, and more.

When buying or selling a home, you deserve a quality inspection that will educate you on a property’s condition in a way that’s honest, friendly, and decidedly helpful.
