SERVICES AND PRICING
Caveat Emptor ~ The buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made. Don't take on this task by yourself, let a trained eye do it for you.
You're looking to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, don't skimp on the inspection by going with the cheapest price, you get what you pay for.
You can trust me to supply you with a comprehensive, honest and objective report as well as top quality customer service after the inspection. I'm not in this business to make friends, I'm in this business to make sure you know as much as you can prior to making the biggest financial decision of your life. I'm in this business to keep people honest. All Home Inspections are conducted IAW the InterNACHI Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for home inspectors. Home inspections are not code inspections, they are inspections for safety issues, health issues and system defects. For reasons related to liability, it’s important to keep the two separate.
You're looking to buy a house, wouldn't it be nice to know what's currently wrong with it or what will need to be repaired/replaced in the near future. Sometime I find things people have hidden or failed to disclose on the sellers disclosure. Never trust a sellers disclosure, its too easy for the seller to play ignorant and say "I didn't know" or "that must have just happened because it wasn't like that before". Its nice to know what the seller isn't telling you or trying to hide with fresh paint and some new trim.
PRE LISTING INSPECTION
Thinking of selling your home and want to know what needs to be done prior to listing? I will do a complete inspection on your home and give you a list of the issues that are a priority, a list of what can wait and/or possibly be negotiated. If you are selling your home, please make sure your service panel, furnace and water heater are accessible and not blocked by personal items.
WELL BEING INSPECTION
You go to the doctor for regular check-ups, why shouldn't you do the same for your home. Not every home owner is a DIY'er and lets be honest, a lot of us think that it was good when I bought it, its probably still good....right? When is the last time you walked your roof, went in the crawlspace or attic? These areas go unseen for the life of the home unless something happens and then its too late. Schedule a well being inspection for your home today and I will check those areas for any damages, defects, aging materials, leaks or moisture. I will also perform a limited interior inspection including moisture readings in all bathroom walls, ceilings and floors, the most common areas where moisture is found that if left unchecked, can lead to costly repairs.
Thinking of renting your home? I will perform a complete inspection before a renter moves in and prior to them moving out. This will benefit both parties by having a document on file that shows the current condition of the home, inside and out. Property management agencies will not enter the attic or crawlspace, they will not walk the roof nor will they check for moisture damage in floors, walls and ceilings. These areas are the most expensive to repair and they always get overlooked. My inspection will cover everything from stains on carpet, nail holes, any professional or non professional repairs, a complete attic, crawlspace and roof inspections as well as moisture readings taken at bathroom floors, walls and ceilings. We can set up an annual appointment for me to inspect the house for any roof issues, water damage, plumbing leaks, etc. Very similar to the well being inspection. This will give you peace of mind that your investment is being thoroughly checked on a regular basis.
1 Year Warranty
Look around, at the rate that these new homes are popping up, there is no possible way for the builders to keep tabs on all of the contractors and sub-contractors. Attention to detail is lacking in all aspects of the build. I see corners being cut by all builders and contractors. Inferior products are being used and poor quality work is the outcome. I've caught a few different builders/contractors not following code in attics, crawlspaces and decks. Some of these issues were thousands to repair not to mention the lost man hours. I make it my fiduciary duty to keep my clients best interest in mind when performing their inspection. I call out everything from a crooked light fixture to structural issues. I call out when jobs look to have been rushed or the quality was overlooked. A wise man once said, "Do it right the first time and you'll never have to do it again" (my dad) I love to keep people honest and hold them to their end of the bargain. You paid for a quality custom home, that's exactly what you should get.
You don't ask what surgeon is the cheapest, you ask what surgeon is the best.
Not all inspectors are created equal, shop the Inspector, not the price.
Do not call me for the best price, call me for the best attention to detail.
I only take one inspection per day so I can focus 100% of my attention on your house.
All prices are based on the size of the home and/or time.
