A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by the NACHI Standards of Practice that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. The scope of work may be modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process. The home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions. The home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.
A 'Framing Inspection' is a comprehensive examination of the framing members, venting, plumbing, and electrical rough-ins in your home. This inspection is usually conducted the day before or the same day as the local building inspector signs off on the framing stage. This is important because once the contractor starts putting on the siding and drywall, conducting a framing inspection becomes impossible.
A 'Turnover Inspection' is performed at the blue tape review stage. After you have performed your blue tape correction walk, I will conduct a thorough inspection of your home to ensure that everything is up to standard, safe, and healthy. With my Turnover Inspection, you can rest assured that your new home is ready for occupancy.
The 'Builder's 11-Month Warranty Inspection' is a crucial inspection that should not be overlooked. Most builders provide a 12-month warranty that covers defects in workmanship and materials. The inspection takes place at the 11-month mark, just before the warranty expires, allowing you to communicate with the contractor on any necessary repairs that need to be addressed before the warranty period expires.

Eventually, a buyer is going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways, such as:
~Allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical and neutral third party.
~Alerts you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
~It may alert you to items of immediate concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
~Permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
~There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy Permit.
~You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.
~It helps you to price your home realistically.
~May relieve prospects' concerns and suspicions.
~May encourage the buyer to waive his inspection contingency.
~Reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.

As a first-time homebuyer, it's crucial to ensure that you're making an informed decision about your purchase. That's why scheduling a home inspection with a Certified Master Inspector is so important. A home inspection can help you identify any potential issues with the property before you make the big decision to buy.
During the inspection, I will carefully examine the property's structural components, including the foundation, roof, walls, and floors. I will also assess the mechanical systems, such as heating, cooling, and plumbing, to ensure they are functioning properly. Additionally, I will inspect the electrical system, including the wiring and circuit breaker panel, to identify any potential safety issues.
Once the inspection is complete, you'll receive a detailed report outlining any issues found during the inspection. This report can be used to negotiate with the seller, request repairs, or adjust the sale price of the property. With the information from the inspection report, you can make a more informed decision about whether or not to move forward with the purchase.
Don't skip the important step of scheduling a home inspection when buying your first home. It's an investment in your future and can help ensure you're making the right choice.
An infrared camera allows me to perform a comprehensive energy efficiency inspection within a home by locating and pin-pointing those areas where unconditioned air is infiltrating into the living areas.

An infrared camera allows me to perform a comprehensive energy efficiency inspection within a home by locating and pin-pointing those areas where unconditioned air is infiltrating into the living areas. Most air infiltrations are located at wall penetrations (such as windows, doors, vents, etc), and at transition areas of fully insulated walls, ceilings and floors. A thermal scan will identify the smallest of insulation breaches and fissures within the concealed cavities of walls and ceilings. During my infrared inspections, I literally show you where you are wasting your precious energy resources and hard earned dollars. My IR camera enables me to point out exactly where those costly energy dollars are being lost.
Radon is an invisible, radioactive gas created from natural deposits of uranium and radium in the soil. Radon is easily drawn into homes through cracks and gaps in the foundation and can reach concentrations that increase the potential for developing lung cancer. The EPA recommends that you know what the indoor radon level is in any hom
Radon is an invisible, radioactive gas created from natural deposits of uranium and radium in the soil. Radon is easily drawn into homes through cracks and gaps in the foundation and can reach concentrations that increase the potential for developing lung cancer. The EPA recommends that you know what the indoor radon level is in any home you are considering buying. If the home has not yet been tested, you should have the house tested.

This inspection includes accessing the sewer line and inserting a camera device or scope into it to evaluate it. The inspection process will be recorded, and a report will be generated to outline what we’ve found. The prepared report will be based on our visual observations and the data we collect from the inspection camera equipment. The inspection and evaluation are not intended to be technically exhaustive. We will provide a written Sewer Scope Inspection Report that is a summary of observations and unbiased opinions based on the experience of the inspector.
