This is an essential part of the home which includes the bathrooms, the water pipes, and storage tanks. We check every detail for any damages to the home heating and cooling systems. Besides home inspection, we also deliver environmental testing and sampling.
Why buyers need a home inspection?
For buyers, we seek to ensure that the client is fully confident before they proceed with the transaction. This process can be an overwhelming experience for first-time buyers as well as people who have not purchased a new home in a while and those buying property for investment purposes. Our role is to identify any problems and potential issues with the property in question. We check everything from the usual major problems like roof problems, foundations, and HVAC to minor issues such as leaks, missing or damaged smoke detectors, broken outlets among others, and generally everything in between.
Selling a home? Get a home inspector
Sellers also need home inspectors to smoothen things out before listing their properties. We identify all things that need to be addressed long before buyers come with their own home inspectors. This allows the process to be fast and greatly reduces the possibility of any hitches and delays as a result of the buyers’ concerns.
Besides home inspection, we also deliver environmental testing and sampling. Our professional home inspection and ancillary services are designed to adhere to or surpass the industry’s current standards and practices.
During the inspection, we encourage our clients to be present so that any concerns they may have been addressed and to have their input considered when repairs are made.
