Approved Home Inspection Has You Covered

When buying a home, we offer you greater peace of mind and clarity on your purchase with a pre-purchase home inspection. For sellers, we help to ensure a smooth transaction with maximum return with a pre-listing home inspection

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Purchasing a new home also means buying that home's problems. With a pre-purchase home inspection you can see exactly what you're buying. Problems discovered during the inspection could allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs - potentially saving you thousands of dollars. We'll even help you become familiar with the property.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Sometimes selling your home can be just as much of a roller coaster as buying one. Getting a pre-listing home inspection can help ensure a quick and smooth transaction. You can enter the selling process with confidence that there won't be any nasty surprises. You'll also avoid delays, which could last for weeks or even months.

Property Walkthroughs

Property Walkthroughs

Don't get caught falling in love with a property only to find out later there was a major flaw in the structure or design of it, that an inspector of experience could have pointed out with a simple walk through. Hire me by the hour, have your realtor line up multiple properties to see for the first time, and we all will walk through together. Let me help you narrow down the options that best fit you.

Drone Technology

Drone Technology

We use UAV (drone) technology to give you a better look at your property, without the risk normally associated with climbing on the roof. Each full home inspection includes a roof inspection with the aid of a drone, allowing us to get a much closer view of every part of the roof to look for damage or improper installation. In the end, you'll have a thorough assessment of the roof's condition, along with clear photos of our findings.

We can also provide aerial still shots and videos of the property if desired.
