Inspection Services

Home Inspections

We provide residential inspections for every type and size of home.  We inspect all the accessible systems of the home, including Crawlspace, Foundation and Framing, Siding, Roofing, Electrical, Plumbing, Windows, Doors, Finishes, Flashing, Ventilation, Insulation, Heating and Air Conditioning, and more.   When finished inspecting, we spend a great amount of time going over all of the findings with you.  A summary of any critical issues can be provided immediately.  Our reports are original and narrative (not just check boxes.)  The report will detail the main findings of the inspection and provide an overview of the existing conditions of the home as well as outline recommendations for the client.  Our reports also provide detailed information like serial numbers of equipment and descriptions of areas or elements that may need repair or replacement.

Mold Inspections

At times it is a good idea to have a home evaluated for mold, especially for real estate transactions for the protection of Buyers and Sellers.   Even if mold is not visible, but the smell of mold is, a mold inspection and test can indicate if there is elevated mold.  In truth, if a home has had plumbing leaks or moisture intrusion, it is probable that unseen mold exists.

Pest and Dry-Rot Inspections

We inspect for wood destroying bugs and fungus, also known as  "Wood Destroying Organisms" WDOs and can include this inspection as a separate report.

Commercial Building Inspections

We have inspected Apartments and Multiple-Unit complexes, Restaurants, Office buildings, Retail and Repair Shops, Warehouses and Convention Centers.  We know what's right and not, because we have a broad hand's on construction background and are savvy in the building sciences from an engineering perspective.

In Process Construction Inspections

We monitor the construction of building projects for lenders or owners to insure everything is on track.
