    Warranty inspection is a home inspection performed within the first year of owning a new home and is usually completed around the last months before the builder’s warranty expires.

  • New Construction Inspection

  • Condo/Townhome Inspection

    We make sure you understand the major systems of the house you’re about to call a home.

  • Sewer scopes

    Are sinks and tubs emptying too slowly? We use a special camera to scope the sewer line to visualize any blockages that are interfering with the plumbing system’s proper drainage.

  • Maintenance Inspections

    As homes age, the quality of the building and its utilities begin to deteriorate. Our annual maintenance inspections include roof inspections, plumbing inspections, electrical inspections, foundation inspections, attic insulation inspections and building structure inspections.

  • Air Quality Testing

    Studies have shown that smoke, fungal spores, and chemicals used by most man-made products such as certain paints, varnish, and cleaners are harmful to humans. Find out what you’ll be breathing with an Air Quality test.

  • Surface mold testing

    While most types of mold aren’t toxic, they can still cause health problems if they aren’t taken care of. Ensure your home is free from toxic mold by having a professional inspector run some tests today.

  • Limited Thermal testing

    Thermal imagery provides an immediate look at the condition of the home, without having to tear anything apart to see inside of walls.

Home Inspection FAQs

It usually takes 2 or 3 hours to perform a complete home inspection. For larger homes, this process will take longer – for small homes and condos, it may only take 1-2 hours.

Usually the buyer pays for a home inspection, because it’s part of the due diligence of buying a home. But you might be able to negotiate for the seller of the home to pay for or cover some of the costs of the home inspection as part of the seller concessions.

No it is not required to get a home inspection for a mortgage. Home inspections are optional, and not required for a loan. If you decide not to get a home inspection, your mortgage lender is still happy to perform an appraisal, and allow you to take out your mortgage, as long as the appraisal results are good. But this is not recommended

Yes you can but it’s not a great idea. You are responsible for paying for the cost of an appraisal, which will be required by your lender. This means you’re going to pay $300-$500 or more for an appraisal agent to examine the property.

If you get the property appraised before inspection, you might end up wasting that money because the inspection could reveal major structural issues, which result in you walking away from the sale.

So it’s always a good idea for inspections to be conducted before appraisals. If the home inspector finds that the house you’re interested in has major flaws, and you can back out due to contingency, you’ll save the cost of the appraisal.

Technically, yes. Closing costs typically include every additional cost associated with buying a home. However, even though home inspections are part of the closing costs, they are not due at closing. You pay for home inspections when they are performed.

Yes. Most major appliances will simply be tested for basic functionality. For example, the inspector may turn on the oven to make sure that it heats up, or test all of the burners on a range, to ensure that they are all active, and operating properly. Or, they may check to make sure that the dishwasher turns on.

Your inspector will do basic functionality testing of major appliances, but is not responsible for verifying the perfect operation of major appliances.
