Whole House Inspection

Our purpose during the inspection of your home is to look for the following 5 items:

  • Health and Safety issues
  • Structural problems
  • Items or systems in need of repair
  • Water penetration and its affects
  • Insect & Termite damage

In addition, our goal is to educate the buyer on the care and maintenance of a home to help your investment continue to increase in valve according to the market value of the home.
