Our Inspection Services
Pre-listing / Seller’s Inspection
It’s best to do your due diligence as a seller and have your home thoroughly inspected before placing it on the market. With a full report, you can decide what to repair or replace and what to disclose to the sellers. This honest and up-to-date information will help show buyers your transparent and genuine intent to do everything to make sure the house is ready for their families.
Having an Inspection performed for a newly constructed home is crucial. Builders and subcontractors often have a lot on their plate and can miss significant items that could cost labor, time, and high energy bills. A certified Home Inspector can make an accurate assessment of the new construction, ensuring that systems and components are installed correctly and operational.
New Construction Phase Inspection
A New Construction Phase Inspection happens throughout the entire construction process. Several inspections are performed during critical aspects of the build. These phase inspections allow us to ensure everything is being done to industry standards before moving on to the next phase. Let us help ensure your next building project runs smoothly.
Commercial Buildings/Property inspections
Before purchasing a small business location, strip mall, or warehouse, it is prudent to ensure the property is worth your investment. A qualified inspector will examine the entire building and inform you of any needed repairs or potential defects that could cost valuable time and money.
