What We Inspect
Foundations, Doors, Windows, Trim
The basic structure and foundation is the heart of any home. We start by thoroughly inspecting all the structures of the house, including the foundation, doors, windows and trim. We look for water infiltration issues, rot, mold, mildew and other issues that can affect the structure of your home.
Heating and Cooling Systems
Plumbing, Furnaces, Fixtures, Main Shutoff
The heating and cooling systems are crucial components of any home. A system that doesn’t function could mean costly repairs. We inspect the entire system and inform you of any issues, so you can assess costs before purchasing your new home.
Mold in Attic
Roof and Attic
Roofs, Attics, Gutters, Downspouts
Moisture can find its way into your attic and other areas of your house causing decay, rot and mold if the roof structure is not sound.
We inspect the condition of the roof, plus flashing, gutters, insulation and ventilation. We’ll locate and include any issues in your report, and give you an assessment of the approximate life expectancy for your roof.
Rust in the Main Circuit Panel
Electrical Panels, Breakers, Fuses, Grounding, GCFI, AFCI Outlets
The electrical system is a fundamental component of a home. Undiscovered issues could lead to costly repairs, and be a hazard to your family’s safety.
We carefully check the electrical system including the electrical box and other components, and point out what may need attention in your report.
