      • Know exactly what you’re buying whether it is a historic home or recent construction.
      • Know which items in the home should be repaired before you buy it and which items are maintenance items that you will be responsible to fix.
      • Learn some useful tips on maintaining your home.

Buyer’s inspections are the most common type of inspection and are normally performed within five days of signing a contract for purchase.  This inspection is designed to give a home buyer an indication of the ‘true condition’ of a home they are purchasing.  To do this we inspect every aspect of the interior and exterior components of your home.

Exterior Components

      • Grading & landscaping and their effects on the foundation.
      • The general condition of siding, trim, windows and storms/screens.
      • The condition of roof, chimney, flashings, and any other roof items.
      • The condition of gutters & downspouts and their effectiveness.
      • Driveway, patio, deck, porch and sidewalk conditions.
      • Condition of air conditioner condenser unit.

Interior Components

      • The general condition of walls, floors, ceilings, windows, and doors.
      • All visible fixtures, pipes, valves, and drains in the plumbing system tested or inspected for operation and installation.
      • Electrical System including service entrance wiring, service panel, and visible wiring inspected.  Random testing of outlets.
      • Furnace and components operated and checked for proper sequencing, cleanliness, improper maintenance or the lack of maintenance.
      • Inspect the attic for damage to visible roof sheeting & framing, and for proper ventilation & insulation.
      • Foundation for defects and evidence of moisture penetration.
