Our Services

RESIDENTIAL INSPECTIONS

If you’re planning on buying or selling a home, then hiring a home inspector could save you thousands of dollars. It will also help you understand the property you want to buy and the possible defects. For sellers, it can provide insight into a home to know what to expect and can make repairs before listing a property.

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTIONS

Newly constructed homes need an objective third-party to inspect. The city or county inspectors often don’t catch everything, but we’ve been trained to have a keen eye for anything that could compromise a new home’s lifetime or safety.

COMMERCIAL INSPECTIONS

This type of inspection is required by law in most states. Whether you’re looking for a quick turnaround or a comprehensive inspection, our certified property inspectors are ready to serve you. Commercial buildings need inspections just like any other type of property, so call us today to set up yours!

Inspector will inspect the interior and the exterior for current infestation of wood-destroying organisms, such as termites, carpenter ants, or carpenter beetles, and look for conducive conditions that could lead to a future one.

When surveying the equipment, the inspector checks the condition of the well and its parts, including the pump, casing, storage tank, cap, and vents.
