A buyers inspection is initiated by the home buyer, usually as a contingency to the final close of a real estate sale. This is also known as a Pre-Purchase inspection. The buyer typically has a 3-10 day option period window to complete an inspection before they can purchase and close on a home.
A Seller's Inspection is initiated by the property owner usually prior to listing the property. Understanding the condition of your property before listing it will ensure that there are no surprises and unexpected costly repairs. It helps the seller's agent to accurately represent the home.
New Home Inspection
Having a new home built? Most buyers will assume a new home will not need an inspection. We often find issues that are overlooked by basic code and compliance checks performed by the builder or contractor. It is best to schedule these inspections 1-2 days before the final walk through.
Pool & Septic Systems
Anyone who is buying or selling properties with pools should consider working with a certified pool and septic inspector to protect themselves from potential safety and liability risks. We check for proper equipment operation and any visual structural or safety problems. This is especially recommended for all residential pools.

One-Year Warranty Inspection
Schedule a Home Warranty Inspection before it expires typically during the first year.
Warranty inspections can help the new owner avoid costly out-of-pocket expenses that could otherwise be covered by a home warranty still in force.
Part of a home inspection is checking that all major appliances are functioning properly.
To confirm that all appliances are in working order, we will run them through one or two cycles to make sure there's no trouble, such as a leaking refrigerator or a smoking dryer.
However, the check is only a neutral source confirming that the appliances work, not an internal or technical diagnostic of the appliance.
We examine the plumbing for function, leaks, and sufficiency of water supply.
A systems inspection also includes:
The key components that we inspect during the structural portion of each home inspection are the foundation, floors, walls, columns, piers, ceilings, roof structure and attic framing.
We also inspect the roof for proper installation and signs of abnormal or harmful water penetration into the building as well as signs of abnormal or harmful condensation on building components.
A goal of a foundation inspection is to determine if the underlying base of your home is structurally sound.
We isolate internal cracks and determine their threat levels.
We examine and support beams and load-bearing devices.
We test how snugly doors, windows and vents fit.
We look for water damage, mold and improper ventilation.

Reviews & Testimonials
My friend Liz referenced Joe as a potential home inspector. His work ethic is clear the moment you start speaking with him. He's extremely thorough and offers tons of useful information. Every issue he identifies, he immediately provides extra info so that the novice home buyer can understand the reasons why.
His process takes you through each point and guides you as to what MAY be important, and what is ABSOLUTELY important. His overall inspection notes are easy to reference since he explains everything so well. Definitely recommended and I have absolutely no regrets going with this inspector.
As first time home buyers, Joe was a great help throughout the process! Not only did he thoroughly inspect the property, he also took the time to explain issues and fixes right then and there. He did a follow-up consultation to make sure the seller made the recommended and agreed upon fixes. Good thing he did, too, because some of those fixes were not completed properly! He plans a third visit to the property when the owner finally finishes all of the repairs. Awesome attitude. He clearly knows his stuff and doesn't mind taking the extra time our of his day to make sure we understood it all too. Definitely a great service!
Joe was SO easy to work with and I will definitely be sending all of my clients to him. An agent in my office referred him and I couldn't be happier with everything.
He explained the report so well to my client and they were very happy with his thoroughness. He even went back to the home for a free re-inspection. Great guy!
