Additional Inspection Services
The smartest move that you can make when preparing to sell a home is to schedule a Pre-Listing Inspection before the property is listed.
We’ll thoroughly evaluate the property inside and out, pinpointing issues that may not have otherwise been discovered until the prospective buyer scheduled their own inspection. This allows you to see the home through the buyer’s eyes, helping you avoid the frustration of existing issues surfacing when the home is in escrow by giving you an opportunity to correct problem areas ahead of time.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection service is an unbiased and non-invasive evaluation of new home construction that will be set to take place before the builder’s final walkthrough.
We’ll carefully inspect each area of the home for defective materials and mistakes that transpired over the course of construction. This information is invaluable for protecting your investment, making it possible to renegotiate terms so that you don’t end up paying out of pocket for repairs that shouldn’t become your responsibility.
New Construction Phase Inspections
We also offer phase inspections to keep tabs on new home construction while the home is being built.
From the moment that the foundation is set to be poured, all the way up to the builder’s final walkthrough, we’ll inspect the property several times to diagnose issues as soon as they have occurred. Gaining this knowledge at each critical phase makes it significantly easier for the builders to implement repairs and other corrections so that the expected date for final closing is not drastically impacted.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
Many newly constructed homes are protected by a builder’s warranty, usually for up to 1 year after final closing.
If this applies to your investment, then you need to have the property professionally inspected before the warranty expires. We will thoroughly investigate the home’s readily accessible areas for evidence of new or ongoing issues, potentially saving you time and money if recommended repairs are covered under the warranty agreement.
(CM) Construction Management
With over 30 years of (CM) construction management and inspection experience, we’re happy to offer our services for any new or ongoing construction project.
We’ll provide our expert guidance and oversight, serving as the liaison between you, hired contractors, designers, architects, engineers, and other specialists involved in the construction process. From the initial groundwork, to post-construction inspection and clean-up, we’re able to assist throughout the design and final build.
4 Point Inspection
A 4 Point Inspection is often required for insurance purposes if a home is more than 30 years old.

A damaged sewer line can become a major financial burden for an unsuspecting homeowner, often adding up to anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 for repair or replacement.

Pool & Spa Inspections
This inspection service is an add-on that must be bundled with a full home inspection.
A pool can be a magnificent addition to a house. Many hours are spent with family and friends in a pool. But just like a house, a poorly maintained or old pool can be costly to restore or repair. Adding a visual pool and spa inspection to your home inspection service is an excellent value.
Pools can have significant repair issues that can be expensive to repair. Resurfacing a pool can be costly; repairs should not be taken lightly.
It is important to document what is functioning properly. Many home buyers obtain a Home Warranty, so it is critical to document those items such as the pump or pool lights were functioning when you buy the home. This way the warranty company cannot claim they were pre-existing conditions. This inspection must be bundled with a full home inspection.
