Providing Thorough Home Inspection Services
The main inspection covers the grounds, siding, roofing, drainage, gutters, and windows; then, once in the house, I go over the electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, framing, ventilation, floors, walls, doors, windows, appliances, fixtures, and . . . lots and lots of stuff, but that's not all I cover!
I am certified by the ITC to do infrared thermal inspections. Infrared thermal inspections are included in all full home inspections. I also offer stand-alone infrared scans. These are ideal for energy auditing and detecting potential water issues as well as many other issues that are not readily detectable visually.
Many homes have mold issues, radon possibilities, and lead paint. All of these items can be tested as well for additional service fees.
Your inspection report is produced electronically and e-mailed to you within 24 hours—no waiting until the next day or two. You want answers, and you get them right away. The report is recorded in an easy to read, comprehensive manner, breaking down the components of your home in easy to understand terms. Then, when it's all over, you have an electronic copy to review, share with your realtor or other members of your closing team, and keep for a permanent record of your home's structures and systems. Also, you get photos (included in the report) on any issues that need immediate attention or that were deficient at the time of the inspection (a picture tells a thousand words).

If I don't answer or respond right away to your text page, it is most likely because I'm with a customer. I PROMISE to get back to you as soon as possible.
Generally, I need at least 24 hours notification, but sometimes I get very busy and it may take two or three days to get you on the schedule; it just depends. I will do whatever I can to accommodate you regarding your contract timeframe and your personal schedule to inspect the property you are about to purchase.
