Here's a list of our inspection services. Feel free to ask us about additional types of inspections. We perform all of our inspections according to the Inspection Standards of Practice.
FULL HOME INSPECTION:
We pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive and detailed Full Home Inspection service. We use the latest tools and technology to identify any potential issues, and provide you with a thorough report so you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. Trust us to provide a reliable and trustworthy inspection for your peace of mind.
NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION:
Are you building a new home? We’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. We can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. We’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.
One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.
Are you selling your home? Let us inspect it before you even list it.
A Pre-Listing Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.
ANNUAL HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION:
Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let us help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, our inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year.
WDO TERMITE INSPECTION:
Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. We'll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later. We subcontract licensed structural pest control contractors to inspect your home.
RADON GAS TEST:
We subcontract Certified Radon Testers to provide a comprehensive evaluation of your home for the presence of radon gas. According to the Surgeon General, one out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should too.
SEPTIC SYSTEM INSPECTION:
We subcontract licensed NC Onsite Wastewater Contractor Inspectors to conduct an inspection of your onsite wastewater (septic) treatment system, assess its overall condition and maintenance, test for functional operation, and advise you of my findings. If the system is overloaded, we can recommend further steps you can take to remedy the problem.
PRIVATE WELL INSPECTION:
Private wells that are constructed properly are usually safe, but problems can occur that can introduce contaminants into the water supply. We subcontract NC Certified Well Contractors to check your private well for basic structural issues, and take a water sample to test it for lead, microbial pollutants, and dangerous chemicals.
