Residential Inspection:

We follow a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that we will inspect the visible and accessible structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology. Following our evaluation, we will compile our findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues we’ve discovered. We will deliver your report within 24 hours, and our job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.

Multi-family Unit Inspection:

A Multi-family Unit Inspection is an inspection of a property that has two to four units. It is much like a regular home inspection, because every item in each unit is inspected. Having each unit inspected is very important because each unit can have unique problems.

Commercial/Industrial/Hospitality Inspection:

Inspection Pros Inc is a well trained, organized and efficient team that has done many large scale commercial and investment properties from 200,000 sq ft warehouse to several acre 150 unit multi-family complexes. We can scale resources to address your needs, from small, free-standing buildings to large apartment complexes. 

We can perform a property condition assessment in a timely manner and provide you with a report on defective items requiring immediate attention, as well as deferred maintenance that will require capital investment in the future. We offer different services for our commercial customers based on their particular needs:

- Standard building inspections focusing on the systems and components. This is called a generalist visualist inspection.

- Detailed building inspection. More detail reported with a repair estimate by a third party company (Repair Pricer)

- Property Condition Assessment. This is a much more involved inspection requiring a site visit prior to the inspection to verify paperwork, contact lists and scope of the inspection are clear. We hire professional trades to inspect the roof, foundation, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems while we inspect the rest of the building. This inspection takes longer to arrange and the report takes up to 48-72 hours after the inspection, based on the complexity of the inspection.

Prior to the inspection, we may request documentation from the seller. These documents can include maintenance records, disclosure statements, environmental reports, permits, and recent repairs. The more information we have, the better the report will be.

Sewer Scope Inspection:

The technical term is 'Sewer Lateral Inspection.' This is the process of using a camera to internally inspect the line from the sewer access point to the city connection. This is commonly done through an access point at the front or side yard. Occasionally this may involve accessing from the roof, a pulled toilet or the crawl space.

The real purpose of this inspection is to determine the condition of the interior surface and connections of the sewer line. The purpose 'IS NOT' to reach the city connection, though that is the preferred outcome. Roots, shifting or damaged pipes can all be seen through a sewer camera and this is often some of the best insurance when buying a home.

Any proper inspection should involve a video that you can review later and send to contractors to get bids if needed. We do not do repairs ourselves so our opinion is unbiased.

Chimney & Fireplace Inspection:

A level-one chimney inspection includes a visual check of the fireplace and chimney without any special equipment or climbing up on the roof. The inspector will come to your house with a flashlight; look for damage, obstructions, creosote buildup, and soot; and tell you if the chimney requires sweeping.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspection:

Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let us help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, our inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year. 

Mold Inspection:

Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. We will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and we'll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.

Pool & Spa Inspection:

Your pool requires proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy it for years to come. Your pool maintenance professional is responsible only for the pool’s chemistry and cleanliness. Let us inspect it for all the other items that will ensure its proper condition and safety. We follow a comprehensive checklist and will inspect for the following: water level; leaks; valves; main drains, grates and inlets; blockages, debris, staining and biological growth; heater and thermostat; adequate fencing and gate security; deck safety; electrical safety, switches, alarms, and lighting; and more.

Roof Inspection:

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? We will perform a standalone Roof Inspection & Certification and evaluate your roof from the eaves, as well as walk it (when it is safe to do so) to assess its overall condition, including the presence and status of flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations. 

Pre-Drywall Inspection:

pre-drywall.png

One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.

Moisture Inspection:

Moisture meters can help to detect and quantify the amount of moisture is actually in a building material. We may use a moisture meter to check areas around plumbing pipes, air conditioning units, bathroom toilets and showers, and at wooden components near or in contact with the ground surface. Appliances may cause water leaks or cause condensation problems may result in elevated levels of moisture. A professional inspector with a moisture meter is equipped to find the source of moisture and water problems in a house. Once discovered, all moisture intrusion problems must be immediately corrected before mold growth develops.

Drone Inspection:

We use a state-of-the-art, camera-mounted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone to capture images of unsafe or hard-to-access areas, such as tall roofs. We can get an up-close look at any issues and defects that would otherwise not be properly inspected and reported. We can also take aerial photos of the property for real estate listings and informational purposes.

Plumbing Inspection:

A plumbing inspection is a systematic process of assessing the critical areas of the plumbing system of a property. It is performed by certified plumbers to avoid the risk of pipe corrosion, clogs, leaks, and burst tubes that can cause flooding and property damage.

New Construction Inspection:

new construction.png

Are you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. We can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. We'll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.

Repair Verification / Follow-Up Inspection:

repair.png

Have you had remodeling or repair work done by a contractor to address a deficiency, or to adapt or modernize some structure or system of your home? We will inspect it to make sure that the materials, installation and workmanship meet quality standards and your specifications. This is not a code-compliance inspection, but an inspection to check that the work was completed properly.

Deck Inspection:

deck.png

A deck inspection should progress in much the same order as deck construction. Inspectors should start at the bottom. If a deck is deemed unsafe from underneath, the inspector should not walk out onto the deck to inspect decking, handrails, etc. The inspector should stop and report the safety issues.

Electrical System Inspection:

An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components (such as appliances) meet legal safety standards.

Inspection Services Package Options

Any ancillary could be added to any of the packages. Including additional chimneys, pool/spa, ADU etc. packages are in addition to the home inspection based on whatever size home is being inspected.
