InspectionsProviding home inspection services to buyers, sellers, real estate agents, and property owners with information on the condition of their residential or commercial property.

A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Most inspections take 1 to 2 hours and cover as many as 200 items, depending on the size of the home. The results are provided to you in the form of a 30-35 page computer-generated report, complete with digital photos of any problem areas. All reports cover the structure from foundation to roof and evaluate all electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems for operability and life expectancy.
