Home Maintenance Inspection​

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the readily accessible components of a home. In other words, we visually inspect what we can see and get to, and cannot disassemble anything. We perform the following inspection services:

we'll help you maintain your home

A home maintenance inspection is like a doctor’s physical exam for your house. Small problems that may have gone unnoticed for years, like a small leak in the roof, could cause major, non-visible damage over time.

Maintaining your investment is important, and you need to know what upkeep your particular house needs. We will inspect the home and property using our comprehensive 101-item checklist, report any problems that we find, and give you helpful advice on upkeep and maintenance.

A home maintenance inspection is designed to help you keep your home running smoothly and to save you time and money.

We recommend getting a home maintenance inspection once a year, or at least every five years at a minimum.

What is not included in a home inspection?

A home inspection is not a complete technical inspection- it is a general visual assessment. A home inspection will not reveal every problem that exists, but only the defects able to be observed on the day of the inspection. A home inspection cannot predict any future conditions.

Some of the things that are not included in a home inspection are:

You get a detailed inspection report

After the inspection, we’ll give you an on-site summary of what we inspected and defects that we found. After that, we’ll send you a detailed digital report with high-resolution pictures, video, and clearly written explanations of what is wrong and why it’s a problem.

You’ll probably think of other things to ask after the inspection, so please contact us anytime if you have questions. When you’re buying, time is short when you’ve made an offer, and we want to be helpful to you in this often emotional and overwhelming experience.
