General Home Inspection
What is a General Home Inspection?
A general, residential home inspection is a visual observation with limited use of mechanical instruments, of readily accessible areas of the building, improvements, mechanical systems, and appliances. My inspection will review the condition of the home’s heating and cooling system (temperature permitting), plumbing and electrical systems, roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors; foundation, basement, and visible structure.
We’re proud to offer these additional services:

Pre-Listing Inspection/Seller’s Inspection
It’s a smart decision to have a home thoroughly inspected before listing it to sell. We’ll evaluate the condition of most readily accessible areas of the property so that you can have a better understanding of your home before it’s shown to buyers. You can then perform any necessary repairs or simply disclose the report in your listing—establishing an atmosphere of trust when it comes time to negotiate.
New Construction Inspection
As the building process on your new home nears completion, it’s a good time to make sure that it holds up to the scrutiny of a trained home inspector. We’ll evaluate the readily accessible components and installed systems of the home to make sure that no oversights have been made during construction and that the structure is safe, sound, and move-in ready.
There’s no need to gamble on the condition of components in a home that have been repaired or modified since their inclusion in our original inspection report. We’ll be happy to come back to the property and reevaluate the component(s) in question—allowing you to have peace of mind with the knowledge that everything is safe and functioning properly.
Mold inside a home can be a serious detriment to our physical well-being, contributing to numerous allergies and illnesses. It can also be responsible for costly damage to home components. We’ll carefully inspect a home for mold and moisture to ensure that your investment is protected from this unsightly and unsafe nuisance.
FHA/VA Water Testing
We’re proud to offer water testing for FHA/VA housing inspections. For these regulated property transfers, we’ll test for bacterial and other contamination that may pose a hazard to homeowners and their family. As a convenience, we offer a quick turnaround that can make the difference. Water test results will be made available as soon as possible.
Up to 40% off all mold and air-quality testing, applied at the time of the inspection.
