The purchase of your home is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. We follow the national and state standards of practice to include: roof, exterior, basement, foundation, crawlspace and structure. We also inspect heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical, fireplace, attic, insulation and ventilation, doors, windows and interior to include built in appliances such as stove and microwave.
We use thermal imaging with each inspection and it is included in the price. This is a helpful tool to find hidden moisture, leaks, or other conditions such as missing insulation between walls which could contribute to energy loss. This is included in the price because it is a great tool to give you a better inspection.

A sewer scope inspection can be one of the best investments you do during a home inspection. Many sewer lines in the area are at their end of life. Even new homes can have issues with the sewer pipes being damaged during the construction process. Sewer repair can cost over $10,000.
