Move-In Certified Seller's Inspection
Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.
Annual Home Maintenance Inspection
Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let me help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year.
New Home Inspection
After your home is built, I will inspect it to confirm that the work was done properly and according to your specifications and contract, and I will help you devise a punch list for your contractor of any missing or deficient items before you issue final payment.
Builder's Warranty Inspection
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of a new home. I’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full inspection before the builder’s warranty expires so that you don’t have to go out of pocket for repairs of covered items.
Investment Property Inspection
If you’re investing in a rental property, or a second or vacation home, this inspection covers the same items that are evaluated in my Standard Home Inspection, and it will help you budget for any necessary repairs and upgrades due to deferred maintenance, age, and other issues.
Let me inspect your rental unit upon your move-in to document its condition and any issues with it so that you can avoid any disputes with your landlord upon your move-out.
Thermal Imaging Inspection
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.
