Inspection Services

My home inspection services include:

  • Buyer’s and seller’s home inspections
  • Reinspections (look at repaired or replaced items to insure they were fixed properly)
  • Outbuildings
  • New construction inspections
  • Home warranty inspections
  • Peace-of-mind inspections (identify issues that need attention)

Your Home Inspection Report includes easy-to-read details on:

  • The condition of every major component from the roof to the basement. This includes but is not limited to: grounds, roof, exterior, garage, electrical, plumbing, kitchen, bathrooms, living spaces, and outbuildings.
  • Evaluation and description of the manually tested working order of all operable systems, i.e. windows, doors, faucets and sinks, heating and a/c systems, etc.
  • A summary page that helps to prioritize items of concern such as major defects, deferred cost items (things that may need replacing/repairing within 5 years), safety issues, potential improvements, and items to monitor.
  • Button to click for sample home inspection report

I email the detailed home inspection report to you to (and your realtor, if requested) and will always make sure you understand everything and answer any remaining questions. I generally email the report within 24 hours of the inspection.

At Check It Out Home Inspection, my job is to give an objective, accurate description of the state of a home or other structure. No more, no less.

Pre-Purchase Home Inspection Services

A home inspection is a visual, noninvasive process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, the grounds and roofing and siding materials are inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. Attics and crawlspaces are inspected, looking at structure, insulation, venting, plumbing, and electrical systems, etc. I fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. (more…)

Sellers Home Inspection Services

A seller’s inspection can help you close faster and save money. The information a seller and their realtor get from a seller’s inspection helps them price appropriately, opt to make advance repairs, give buyer fuller disclosure, and avoid costly and lengthy negotiations that can hold up closing, or worse, throw the deal.

New Construction and Warranty Pre-Expiration Inspections

Homeowners may choose to get a new construction inspection when construction is complete, but prior to your final walk-through with the builder. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder’s policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. Also, a homeowner can order a home inspection shortly before a home warranty will expire, giving the homeowner the chance to call out problems that need to be fixed by the builder before the warranty expires.
