Our Inspection Services
After you've signed a contract to buy a new home, you need to schedule your inspection as soon as possible. Our home inspector will go over the following:
- Exterior: Our inspection thoroughly covers all exterior areas, from the foundation to the roof. Please note that we don't physically get on the roof due to liability issues.
- Interior: Our interior inspection checklist includes electrical and plumbing systems, HVAC, structure, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
This comprehensive coverage ensures that your new home is up to par, and if not, provides the current homeowners a list of things to fix before moving out. That way, you have a great home to move into. We also offer home inspections for homeowners moving out.

Frequently Asked Questions about Home Inspections
When should I schedule my home inspection?
Home buyers should schedule a home inspection as soon as you have a ratified contract, usually within 5-7 days. Home sellers typically schedule a home inspection as a pre-listing assessment to repair any items prior to putting their home on the market.
Should I attend my home inspection?
Yes, please do! We encourage you to follow the inspector around, ask questions, and learn more about your potential new home. Although not required, it is helpful to gain valuable information.
Do you get on top of the roof?
Our roof inspections are conducted from the ground as well as from the attic. We do not get on pitched roofs due to the liability.
Do you inspect code items?
The home inspection does not include a review for compliance with regulatory requirements (Building Code or other codes, regulations, laws, ordinances, etc.).
