Here are our inspection services. We provide complete home inspection services according to the Home Inspection Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
Home Inspection: $400 & UP
A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. I’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.
1500 to 1999 SF: $400
2000 to 2499 SF: $425
2500 to 2999 SF: $450
3000 to 3500 SF: $500
This inspection is roughly the same as a Standard Home Inspection, with some important distinctions. I will inspect the interior structure, systems and components that are specific to your unit, but exclude any exterior and common elements and areas that may fall under the purview of the building’s owner. Please ask me for more details.
Stand Alone $125.00 / With Full Inspection $0
Many insurance companies require a 4-Point Inspection for homeowner’s insurance and renewals for an existing policy on an older home. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition.
Wind Mitigation Inspection:
Stand Alone $125.00 / with Full Inspection $75
Wind mitigation helps limit the amount of wind damage inflicted on a home. Many homeowner's insurance companies offer incentives, such as premium discounts and rebates, for implementing specific protections. And if you’ve already made certain improvements, a Wind Mitigation Inspection can provide the verification you need to receive credits and discounts.
Infrared Inspection (stand alone): $150.00
I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Additional Structures – Pole Barns, Sheds, Work Shops, Cottages: Price varies
I will inspect any additional residential units on the property (guest house, carriage house, mother-in-law cottage, etc.) for structural and safety issues, and to make sure that their systems and components are functioning as they should. If you have a rural property, I can also inspect other items and conditions around such structures, including gates and fencing, landscaping and site drainage, and encroaching trees and foliage.
4 Point and Wind Mitigation Reports Combined: $200
Performed fire mitigation at your property, your home is exposed, and you might even find your insurance premiums raised significantly. I will inspect your property for proper clearances and hazards, and advise you on some steps to take to minimize the risk to your home and outbuildings from wildfires.
Buy-Back Guarantee Is Included
