thermal scans

Every home inspection includes a free thermal scan of the home. Little reveals more about a home than a deep look behind the scenes. Click below for more:

appliances

Dishwasher, food waste disposer, range hood, range, oven, cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, bathroom exhaust fan(s) and heater(s), garage door operator(s), doorbell/chimes and dryer vent.

water quality

Buying a country home? I can test your well water for dangerous contents such as Ecoli and coliform. There is an an additional fee for water quality testing.

Ducts, plenums, vents, as well as heating and cooling equipment. Did you know that, in my experience, the vast majority of heating and cooling systems - whether they be gas or electric - have issues that can pose dangers and cost you money?

Additional services

11-month warr.

Did you build a home with a 1-year warranty? Purchase a home warranty that expires next month? I can inspect the home now so you can properly benefit from existing warranties before they expire.

commercial

If you are buying a commercial building, I can help. The same standards as documented above are followed for all commercial inspections.

Yearly checkup

The health of your home is important. Annual checkups can save you money, alert you to issues and catch minor issues before they become major headaches. Hire me to do a yearly home diagnosis.

phased

If you are building a home, I can inspect it at each stage. Having built my own home previously, I know the importance of correctly finishing one phase before moving on to the next.

was it done right?

If you had repairs done, or maybe a new roof or addition installed, I can thoroughly inspect the job to make certain work was done correctly. Make sure you received what you paid for.

pre-sell

If you are selling a home and want to avoid surprises, to know if certain important repairs are in order, hire me to help you sell more quickly and at a fair price.

my promise to you

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until your inspection appointment -- after you've hired me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and pricing. One thing that’s certain is that a home inspection requires a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s effort. If you entrust me to inspect your home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort, deliver the report on the same day as the inspection and strictly follow all the steps outlined above. 

pricing

Pricing varies based on the size and location of the home and whether you also need water quality and/or radon testing. My goal is to provide quality at a competitive price. That's why I ensure my prices are well within norms. Call or email today to discuss the details.
