residential home inspector

A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. I’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

WDO Termite Inspection: $75

WDO termite inspector

Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later. Please click here for more information.

Radon Gas Test: $150

radon tester internachi certified inspector

Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too. Please click here for more information.

Mold Inspection:

Certified Mold Inspector

Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis. Please click here for more information.

Infrared Inspection: $100

Infrared White Text

I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Water Quality Inspection:

Certified Water Quality Inspector

Let me test your potable water supply, especially if your property has a private well, cistern or septic system. I will check it for coliform and other harmful bacteria, which can endanger your family’s health.

Annual Home Inspection:

Certified Annual Home Maintenance Inspector

Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let me help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year. 

EIFS STUCCO Inspection:

Qualified EIFS STUCCO Inspector

Stucco is an attractive exterior cladding that has superior insulation value, weather resistance, and longevity. It can be applied over a range of surfaces, including masonry, metal, and wood. Stucco requires a knowledgeable inspector tto properly apply and repair it. Stucco also requires specialized knowledge to accurately identify its different components. I’ll perform a non-invasive inspection to determine the type of stucco system on your home, and make recommendations for maintenance and repair, if necessary.

Move-In Inspection:

Certified Move In Inspector

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.

Pool & Spa Inspection: $200

Certified Pool and Spa Inspector

Your pool requires proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy it for years to come. Your pool maintenance professional is responsible only for the pool’s chemistry and cleanliness. Let me inspect it for all the other items that will ensure its proper condition and safety. I follow a comprehensive checklist and will inspect for the following: water level; leaks; valves; main drains, grates and inlets; blockages, debris, staining and biological growth; heater and thermostat; adequate fencing and gate security; deck safety; electrical safety, switches, alarms, and lighting; and more.

Sewer Scope Inspection:

Certified Sewer Scope Inspector

Are your sinks and tubs emptying too slowly? I will use a special camera to scope your sewer line to visualize any blockages that are interfering with your plumbing system’s proper drainage. Finding and addressing such problems now can head off catastrophic and expensive repairs later.

Septic Tank System Inspection:

Certified Septic Tank System Inspector

I will conduct an inspection of your onsite wastewater (septic) treatment system, assess its overall condition and maintenance, test for functional operation, and advise you of my findings. If the system is overloaded, I can recommend further steps you can take to remedy the problem.

Commercial Building Inspection:

Certified Commercial Building Inspector

A commercial building inspection is meant to identify the current condition of the property as well as the cost that must be paid to make any of the necessary repairs. ... Everything from the interior of the building to the ventilation and air conditioning system will be checked during a commercial building inspection. Please click here for more information.

Roof Inspection:

Certified Roof Inspector

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? I will perform a standalone Roof Inspection & Certification and evaluate your roof from the eaves, as well as walk it (when it is safe to do so) to assess its overall condition, including the presence and status of flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.

Pre-Drywall Inspection:

pre-drywall certified inspector

One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.

4-Point Inspection:

Certified Four Point Inspector

Many insurance companies require a 4-Point Inspection for homeowner’s insurance and renewals for an existing policy on an older home. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition. 

Wind Mitigation Inspection:

Certified Wind Mitigation Inspector

Wind mitigation helps limit the amount of wind damage inflicted on a home. Many homeowner's insurance companies offer incentives, such as premium discounts and rebates, for implementing specific protections. And if you’ve already made certain improvements, a Wind Mitigation Inspection can provide the verification you need to receive credits and discounts.

Healthy Home Inspection:

Certified Healthy Home Inspector

Scientific evidence demonstrates a solid relationship between housing conditions and human health. Studies on the economic burden of specific defects in homes show costs rising into the billions of dollars annually. Defects in the home contribute to both poor health and the economic burdens on society at large.

Drone Inspection:

Certified and Trained Drone Pilot Home Inspector

I use a state-of-the-art, camera-mounted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone to capture images of unsafe or hard-to-access areas, such as tall roofs. I can get an up-close look at any issues and defects that would otherwise not be properly inspected and reported. I can also take aerial photos of the property for real estate listings and informational purposes.

Moisture Inspection:

moisture inspector

Moisture meters can help to detect and quantify the amount of moisture is actually in a building material. I may use a moisture meter to check areas around plumbing pipes, air conditioning units, bathroom toilets and showers, and at wooden components near or in contact with the ground surface. Appliances may cause water leaks or cause condensation problems may result in elevated levels of moisture. A professional inspector with a moisture meter is equipped to find the source of moisture and water problems in a house. Once discovered, all moisture intrusion problems must be immediately corrected before mold growth develops.

Plumbing Inspection:

Certified Plumbing Inspector

A plumbing inspection is a systematic process of assessing the critical areas of the plumbing system of a property. It is performed by certified plumbers to avoid the risk of pipe corrosion, clogs, leaks, and burst tubes that can cause flooding and property damage.

Private Well Inspection:

well inspector

Private wells that are constructed properly are usually safe, but problems can occur that can introduce contaminants into the water supply. I’ll check your private well for basic structural issues, and take a water sample to test it for lead, microbial pollutants, and dangerous chemicals.

New Construction Inspection:

Certified New Construction Inspector

Are you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.

Repair Verification:

Certified Repair Verification Inspector

Have you had remodeling or repair work done by a contractor to address a deficiency, or to adapt or modernize some structure or system of your home? I will inspect it to make sure that the materials, installation and workmanship meet quality standards and your specifications. This is not a code-compliance inspection, but an inspection to check that the work was completed properly.

Home Energy Inspection:

Certified Home Energy Auditor

I’ll collect data using an advanced energy calculator developed by InterNACHI® to: • estimate the home’s yearly energy usage:

  • pinpoint potential energy inefficiencies

  • develop recommendations for energy improvements

  • determine your potential energy savings.

 

The Home Energy eBook is included with your Home Energy Report. It describes additional steps you can take right now to save energy, increase your family’s comfort, and protect the environment.

Deck Inspection:

Certified Deck Inspector

A deck inspection should progress in much the same order as deck construction. Inspectors should start at the bottom. If a deck is deemed unsafe from underneath, the inspector should not walk out onto the deck to inspect decking, handrails, etc. The inspector should stop and report the safety issues.

Electrical System Inspection:

Electrical Inspector

An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components (such as appliances) meet legal safety standards.

Chimney & Fireplace Inspection:

Certified Chimney and Fireplace Inspector

A level-one chimney inspection includes a visual check of the fireplace and chimney without any special equipment or climbing up on the roof. The inspector will come to your house with a flashlight; look for damage, obstructions, creosote buildup, and soot; and tell you if the chimney requires sweeping.

Monster Free Inspection:

Certified Monster Free Inspector

Moving to a new home can be stressful for children, too. That’s why I offer a Monster-Free Inspection and Certificate.
