This is our most common and comprehensive inspection. A general 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 Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. During this inspection we will be observing and analyzing all of your home's components including (but not limited to) the exterior, interior, foundation, structure, kitchen, roof, attic, electrical, heating/cooling, bathrooms, basement, plumbing, garage, and so much more.
Each inspection will ultimately be followed with our detailed report which contains full color photos, thorough defect explanations, and important information regarding your home. This report will be provided to you by the end of the next business day.
Itemized Inspections - Skeleton Inspection
The home is a system which is made up of many components working together to function correctly. Some clients find that they only have a need for a select few of these items to be inspected such as the roof, attic, basement, and foundation which is often referred to as the "backbone" of a home. Our itemized or "Skeleton Inspection" is perfect for these situations. Whether you are looking for an itemized inspection, a full inspection, or anything in between, we can tailor fit a package for your needs at a price that reflects it.
Our Skeleton Inspection includes the roof, attic, basement and foundation.
New Building Site - Ground Analysis
In Northeast Ohio all building sites are far from created equally. In fact, throughout most of the state the ground in which we build upon is comprised of glacial deposits which can vary greatly from site to site, even if they are very close in proximity. Whether or not this randomly deposited material is suitable of holding up your new investment is a potentially expensive question which needs to be answered sooner rather than later in your construction process. This is where we can help. Our vast experience in the Geotechnical aspect of residential engineering can be a vital tool in ensuring that the ground you are proposing to build on is up for the task, and not a potential money pit.
11th Month Inspection
When buying a home, a home warranty is often purchased as well. These warranties most often last for one year. Although this warranty creates a great sense of security while it lasts, it leaves a home owner questioning their vulnerability of a costly repair as soon as it runs out. The "11th Month Inspection" is perfect for these clients. Many times, potential expensive fixes can be spotted before they are disastrous, and if they are found just before your warranty expires you don't have to pay for them. Let us inspect your home to find items which may need addressed any time before your warranty expires.
