My Standard Home Inspection
Standard Home Inspections
I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.
I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe y process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.
As a state-licensed Certified Master Inspector® trained by InterNACHI®, I adhere to a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I will inspect all of the following, when visible and accessible:
- Structural Components
- Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
- Exterior Cladding
- Porch & Deck
- Attached Garage
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
- HVAC System
- Interior, including:
- Built-In Appliances
- Ceilings, Floors, & Walls
Following my evaluation, I will complete my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your port within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
My Specialty Services
Commercial Property Inspection
Let me inspect your commercial property to ensure its overall condition and safety. Remember that your liability can extend to employees, customers and occupants, so make sure that your building’s structure, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC are functioning properly and safely. If here are issues that need addressing, I can make the appropriate recommendations for licensed professionals who can advise you on specific maintenance and repairs.
Roof Inspection & Certification
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 condition of flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.
Mobile/Manufactured Home Inspection
I will inspect your mobile or manufactured home for defects that are specific to those types of structures, including fire safety issues, and the plumbing, heating and electrical systems, as well as the homes’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.
Thermal Imaging Inspection
I use a state-of-the art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. By evaluating the 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, and flue leaks in the chimney.
