Inspection Services & Fees

Home Inspection: Starting at $500

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.

Commercial Building Inspection: Starting at $500

We inspect all types of commerical and industrial buildings from Plazas, Gas Stations, Office Buildings, Medical Clinics, Apartment Complexes and Maintenance Workshops. We are competent in assessing Fire and Gas Systems.

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION:

New Construction Inspector Logo

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. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’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. 

Infrared Thermography: $200 

Infrared  Inspector Logo

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. 

ANNUAL HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION: $300

Annual Home  Inspector Logo

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 me 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, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year. 

Sellers! MOVE-IN INSPECTION: Starting at $500

Move-In  Inspector Logo

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now. 

SEWER SCOPE INSPECTION: $150

Sewer Scope  Inspector Logo

Are your sinks and tubs emptying too slowly? I will use a special camera to scope your sewer line to visualize any blockages that are interfering with your plumbing system’s proper drainage. Finding and addressing such problems now can head off catastrophic and expensive repairs later. 

ROOF INSPECTION: $200

Roof Inspection Inspector Logo

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? I 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. 

4-POINT INSPECTION:

4-Point  Inspector Logo

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:

Wind Mitigation  Inspector Logo

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.

HEALTHY HOME INSPECTION:

Healthy Homes  Inspector Logo

Scientific evidence demonstrates a solid relationship between housing conditions and human health. Studies on the economic burden of specific defects in homes show costs rising into the billions of dollars annually. Defects in the home contribute to both poor health and the economic burdens on society at large.
 
The good news is that most home-based hazards are preventable. Not only can we help reduce health problems for homeowners and their families, but we can relieve the economic costs associated with poor housing, too, which also results in a positive return on the investment. And it all starts with inspecting the home. InterNACHI® recommends that an annual home inspection should be a part of a homeowner’s routine maintenance plan, because a healthy home provides a safe and healthy environment for its occupants. 

DRONE INSPECTION: $200

Drone Pilot  Inspector Logo

I 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. I can get an up-close look at any issues and defects that would otherwise not be properly inspected and reported. I can also take aerial photos of the property for real estate listings and informational purposes. 

PLUMBING INSPECTION:

Plumbing  Inspector Logo

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.

REPAIR VERIFICATION:

Repair Verification  Inspector Logo

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now. 

DECK INSPECTION:

Deck  Inspector Logo

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.

CHIMNEY AND FIREPLACE INSPECTION:

Chimney  Inspector Logo

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.

MONSTER FREE INSPECTION: $Free.00

Moving to a new home can be stressful for children, too. That’s why I offer a Monster-Free Inspection and Certificate. Your child can accompany me while I inspect under their bed, under the stairs, in the closet, and anywhere else they want so I can assure them that there aren’t any monsters. Simply request this service when I schedule your inspection and I’ll bring a personalized Monster-Free Certificate with me.

SANTA SAFE CHIMNEY INSPECTION: $ Free.00

We can do many things to keep Santa's travel down the chimney safe while he arrives at your home. Even though there will always be risks when traveling down the chimney, there are things we can do to improve safety.
