Inspection Services

Here's a list of our inspection services. Feel free to ask us about additional types of inspections. We perform all of our inspections according to the Inspection Standards of Practice.

FULL HOME INSPECTION

A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. I’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.


 Crawl Space Robot Inspection is available

INFRARED INSPECTION

Infrared Certified InterNACH

I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. 

ROOF INSPECTION

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? I will inspect your roof-covering materials from the ground, roof edges, or I will fly drone to assess its overall condition. I can also conduct a standalone roof inspection and certification. A roof inspection includes inspecting the roof covering, flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations. 

DRONE INSPECTION

I use a state-of-the-art, camera-mounted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone to capture images of unsafe or hard-to-access areas, such as tall roofs. I can get an up-close look at any issues and defects that would otherwise not be properly inspected and reported. I can also take aerial photos of the property for real estate listings and informational purposes.

MOISTURE INSPECTION

Moisture meters can help to detect and quantify the amount of moisture is actually in a building material. I may use a moisture meter to check areas around plumbing pipes, air conditioning units, bathroom toilets and showers, and at wooden components near or in contact with the ground surface. Appliances may cause water leaks or cause condensation problems may result in elevated levels of moisture. A professional inspector with a moisture meter is equipped to find the source of moisture and water problems in a house. Once discovered, all moisture intrusion problems must be immediately corrected before mold growth develops.  

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION

Are you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs, and verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items.

REPAIR VERIFICATION / FOLLOW-UP INSPECTION

Repair Verification (2)

Have you had remodeling or repair work done by a contractor to address a deficiency, or to adapt or modernize some structure or system of your home? I will inspect it to make sure that the materials, installation and workmanship meet quality standards and your specifications. This is not a code-compliance inspection, but an inspection to check that the work was completed properly.

DECK INSPECTION

deck (3)

Whether your deck was a DIY project or professionally built, let me inspect it for critical safety features and structural strength, including: proper attachment to the home; proper deck board spacing; adequate bracing underneath; adequate infill spacing between balusters; secure posts and soil integrity; safe stair treads and graspable handrails; safe clearances from power lines; electrical and lighting features; and more. 

MOVE-IN INSPECTION

Before new owners move in, we offer a thorough evaluation of the state of the property. This service entails a comprehensive assessment of the inside and outside of the property with an emphasis on finding any problems that might have gone unnoticed during the initial home inspection. Home inspection companies can ensure that new homeowners have a secure and stress-free move-in experience by offering dependable and comprehensive move-in inspections.
