Here are our inspection services. We provide complete home inspection services according to the Home Inspection Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
FULL HOME INSPECTION: $325 and up
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.
MANUFACTURED HOME INSPECTION: $275 and up
I will inspect your mobile or manufactured home for defects that are specific to those types of structures. These include fire safety issues, and the plumbing, heating and electrical systems, as well as the home’s body, frame and foundation requirements. I will also check for affixed seals that certify that the home was built in compliance with U.S. federal housing codes.
ANNUAL HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION: $325 and up
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.
MOVE-IN INSPECTION: $325 and up
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. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.
POOL & SPA INSPECTION: $150 and up ($75 w/ Home Inspection)
Your pool requires proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy it for years to come. Your pool maintenance professional is responsible only for the pool’s chemistry and cleanliness. Let me inspect it for all the other items that will ensure its proper condition and safety. I follow a comprehensive checklist and will inspect for the following: water level; leaks; valves; main drains, grates and inlets; blockages, debris, staining and biological growth; heater and thermostat; adequate fencing and gate security; deck safety; electrical safety, switches, alarms, and lighting; and more.
ROOF INSPECTION: $125 and up
Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? I will perform a standalone Roof Inspection & Certification and evaluate your roof from the eaves, as well as walk it (when it is safe to do so) to assess its overall condition, including the presence and status of flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.
4-POINT INSPECTION: $250
Many insurance companies require a 4-Point Inspection for homeowner’s insurance and renewals for an existing policy on an older home. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition.
11 MONTH "BUILDERS" WARRANTY INSPECTION: $325 and up
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. I’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. My non-invasive inspection is based on my observations of the visible and apparent condition of the interior and exterior of the structure, including its major systems and components. Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information about any material defects and problems I’ve found. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they’re still in force.
DECK INSPECTION: $125 and up
A deck inspection should progress in much the same order as deck construction. Inspectors should start at the bottom. If a deck is deemed unsafe from underneath, the inspector should not walk out onto the deck to inspect decking, handrails, etc. The inspector should stop and report the safety issues.
REPAIR VERIFICATION / RE- INSPECTION: $150
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.
