Inspection Services and Inspection Fees

pre-purchase inspections

A pre-purchase home inspection is the most common inspection we perform. It is a thorough examination of the home and all of the visible systems. Our highly trained inspectors carefully examine the home (you are welcome to join and ask questions along the way) and provide an in-depth report of all the major systems in the home and what conditions were found, along with recommendations on how to improve them. Having a pre purchase inspection is recommended by the financial institutions and can help make it easier for a client to get an estimate on repair costs as well as assist in the negotiation process of purchasing a home.

Pre listing home inspections are helpful to inform both the agent and homeowner on the current condition of the residence and all the contained systems. It helps to identify areas of concern or any problems that could affect the sale of the home. This helps make real estate sales go more smoothly by informing prospective buyers that either the defects have been repaired or that you have taken the current condition of the home into account to determine the asking price.

commercial inspections

Commercial inspections require an advanced level of education in order to inspect systems which are not found residentially. Our extensive education and experience in commercial construction gives our inspectors the confidence they need to provide an accurate overall assessment of the commercial space being inspected. This type of inspection can help in the negotiation process, and can help inform clients of potential costs that may be necessary in order to grow a commercial business.
