When you buy a home you're also buying that home's problems. You can think of a home inspection as a safety net, providing peace of mind and protecting you from potentially falling into a bad investment. Problems discovered during the inspection, which weren't disclosed by the seller, could strengthen your position in negotiations.
Unfortunately, new does not always mean perfect. In fact, new doesn't even guarantee good. Material defects and human error during the construction process can lead to expensive problems later on. A new construction inspection can help identify these problems early when they're cheaper to fix. Some issues may even be covered under warranty.
Sell your home faster, with less hassle and more profit. A pre-listing home inspection helps you provide full disclosure and make reasonable repairs, on your terms. Enter the selling process with confidence, build trust with potential buyers, and avoid last- minutes negotiations by getting a full home inspection before you list.

Buying a home is a big deal. It's up to you to protect your investment and your family. We can help you understand exactly what it is you're buying, with the education to know where and how to look for issues that may go unseen for years, and the experience to tell the difference between major and minor problems.
We encourage you to follow along during your inspection to see things first-hand, where you can ask questions to fully understand the condition of the home. We'll even give you plenty of helpful tips and advice to keep your home in great condition for years to come.
Check faucets and showers, looking for visible leaks as well as testing water pressure. Identify the types of pipes used, if visible. Identify the location of the main water shutoff valve.
Identify the type of wiring, test all outlets and make sure there are GFCIs installed where needed to protect from electrical shock. Inspect the electrical panel for safety issues and fire hazards.
Determine the age of the furnace and air conditioner, whether or not they function properly, and possibly recommend repairs or maintenance.
Determine the age of the water heater and check for proper installation. I can also determine the condition and possibly give an estimated remaining life span of the unit.
Check for proper ventilation. A poorly ventilated dryer exhaust can be a serious fire hazard.
Test smoke detectors and ensure that the garage wall, if present, has the proper fire rating and is undamaged. Also check the fireplace for proper installation and maintenance.
Check for visible leaks, properly secured toilets, proper ventilation to prevent moisture related issues, and more.
If possible, check for structural damage and proper ventilation. Also check insulation and ensure that nothing is ventilated directly into the attic, such as the bathroom.
Check for damaged or missing siding, cracks, and excessive soil contact which can be an invitation for pests.
Check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the house, which prevents water from entering the house or causing damage to the foundation.
If accessible and visible, check for roof damage or poor installation that may allow for water penetration as well as checking the condition of the gutters.
Test the garage door for proper functionality, check for proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, and check for risks of explosion from ignition sources too close to the floor.
