Pre-Listing Inspection

Are you selling your home? Let an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® inspect it before you even list it.

Oil tank/UST sweep

Homes built before 1980 are suspected of having an Underground Storage Tank (UST). Many oil tanks were improperly disposed of and left to decay underground. This has allowed the oil to escape and is very expensive to clean up. Don’t get caught paying for the clean up by having your property scanned for a tank.

WDO/Termite Inspection

Termites and Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO) cause $30 billion worth of damage a year! Don’t let your property fall victim to termite damage. During a termite inspection, we will look for signs of termite infestation.

NEW CONSTRUCTION inspection

Think a brand new home doesn’t need to be inspected? Think again! Many home builders are never around after the house is built to see the mistakes they made. We are aware of the common mistakes and details that are missed when building a home.

ANNUAL

HOME MAINTENANCE CHECKUP

Every home should be inspected each year to help you identify problems early so that you can make immediate repairs or budget for repairs in the future. This is a smart way to keep up with maintaining your home.

This inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of your home with an emphasis on safety issues and signs of delayed maintenance.

re-inspections

If you requested that the seller make repairs after the initial home inspection, we can perform an additional inspection once those repairs have been completed. Verifying that the repairs were done correctly will give you peace of mind to proceed with the real estate transaction.
