At Detailed Home Inspections, we spend much of our time, of course, inspecting homes for real estate transactions.  We pride ourselves on being extremely thorough and taking the time necessary to carefully examine each and every home we inspect.  We typically deliver our reports within 24 hours of our inspection.

From the crawl space to the roof, we have the years of experience and knowledge to identify potential issues in any facet of a home that the average homeowner may miss, or not even know to look for.

A home inspection is a crucial part of the home buying experience.  It plays a key role in establishing the true condition of a house.  With Detailed Home Inspections, you can be assured that a seasoned professional has inspected your home, and given you the information you need to make an educated assessment of the property.  We are available to clarify our findings and answer any questions you may have.  We stand behind our inspections, with a 90 day limited warranty.

Here are some additional inspections that we can perform:Home Inspection

FRAMING/PRE-DRYWALL INSPECTIONS- The framework of a home will be a part of a building for decades, so during construction, we can check these elements to make sure the builder is following good construction practices  This is an important and often overlooked step when purchasing new construction.

RADON TESTS- North Carolina’s Research Triangle is on the fringe of the country’s most dangerous area for radon contamination.  Since the amount of radon particles can vary from house-to-house, it can be a good idea to conduct a radon test in your home, so that you can address potential problems, or be confident that none are present.

SEPTIC SYSTEM INSPECTIONS- Septic systems can be an easily overlooked part of a home’s infrastructure … until problems arise.  Particularly in advance of a home purchase, it can be a good idea to get an updated status on the pipes, septic tank, drain fields and soil.  If the system is due — or overdue — for a pumping, that cash outlay should be accounted for as well.

WELL INSPECTIONS- Clean and safe water is vital to the health and well-being of your family.  In rural locations with untreated water, it is crucial to be sure that well components are in perfect working order and that water coming from them is free of bacteria and other contaminants. We evaluate your well’s physical structure and send a water sample for testing to ensure your water’s quality.

TERMITE INSPECTIONS- There are few pests that can cause as much damage to a home as termites.  In general, termites in North Carolina’s Research Triangle area are subterranean (live underground).  Their presence is often not obvious until considerable structural damage has been done.  For home owners, or those people considering a home for purchase, a termite inspection can be a worthwhile investment.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING- The quality of the indoor air you breathe can have an important impact on your health. Air samples can tell you if you have hidden moisture or leaks that are producing spores that may represent a health risk to you and your family. Call us today to arrange for indoor air quality testing.
