The Home Inspection Process

Our inspection is a limited visual inspection consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE), designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property’s current condition.

We look at the following areas during our Standard Home Inspection:

  • Structure
  • Wood-Destroying Insect Activity
  • Basement Water
  • Ventilation
  • Heating & Cooling Energy Efficiency
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Interior & Exterior
  • Roofing
  • Life & Fire Safety
  • Pool & Spa
  • Environmental

Home Maintenance Plan

Following the on-site home inspection, you will receive a detailed written report that our clients find easy to follow. The most popular feature of the report is our Home Maintenance Plan, which provides homeowners with useful information about their home’s expected condition for the next ten years and includes cost estimates for repairs, upgrades and maintenance items.
