Who Needs a Home Inspection?

Home Buyers

We want you to understand the ins and outs of your new home. We schedule time during and after our inspections to walk through the home with you so that we can discuss areas where you might have questions or concerns. Along with your home inspection report, we include recommended maintenance for your home. Even if you plan on hiring a handyman to maintain your home, it is important to know the maintenance schedules for your home as a system.

New Home Inspections

We are pleased to be one of the few “New Home Inspectors” in the state. Your new site built home may come with a one or two-year warranty, but the peace of mind you earned by purchasing a new home could last only as long as the warranty.


Pre-Closing Walk Through

Closing on your home can sometimes take from 45 to 60 days. During the time between our home inspection and your closing, some damage or changes in condition may occur. For example, when the previous owners are moving out, walls and doors could be damaged, as well as some appliances, if utilities are cut off during this time.  We recommend that you walk through the home with your real-estate agent to observe the condition before you close.


There are No Secrets to Conducting Thorough Home Inspections

Our home inspections follow a simple but thorough checklist, which consists of the following areas:
