For most Home Inspectors, a quick walk-through and a clipboard are all that’s required. We perform inspections that go deeper into the workings of the home, offering services like combustible gas leak checks, microwave leak testing, moisture testing and thermal imaging (optional).
A home with an old water heater has an added expense of several hundred dollars. A home that needs a new roof has an added expense of several thousand dollars. A home with a structural problem has an added expense that could add up to tens of thousands of dollars. Expenses like these can be okay if you’re expecting them and have the opportunity to plan for them, but they’re certainly not the kind of things you want to be surprised by!
And yes, we actually test appliances.
Our home inspection process is thorough and our reports are comprehensive and simple to understand. See a sample report here. We inspect building exteriors, interiors, roofs, foundation, crawlspaces, plumbing, electrical and heating and air-conditioning systems.
