We Work for You

Home inspections & consultation are our only business. We are impartial and work only for you. We have no affiliation with any real estate interest or contracting firm. Our job is to provide you with a comprehensive, fair, independent, objective evaluation. Your interests are our interests before, during, and after the inspection for as long as you own the property.



Our Services

Home inspections can help you buy or sell your home/building/condo with confidence. We also act as an advisor/inspector for new home construction and remodeling projects. We also provide advice on special household problems you may have.  Call us before calling a contractor for an independent evaluation. 

As trained professionals we have seen it all, and we'll provide invaluable help in turning you into a knowledgeable consumer. We can help home owners identify problems in the making and take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs. Sellers can understand conditions the buyer’s inspector may point out and put the property in better selling condition by making repairs. Our inspection services include:

Buyers Inspection

In both new and older properties, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention. See our Inspection Overview for more details.

Sellers Inspection

Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: we help you answer how serious the problems are and which must be immediately addressed and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation. See our Inspection Overview for more details.

Construction Inspection

In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be some years ago, therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including backfill/drainage, pre-dryall, and final inspection. These inspections protect your purchase, prevent unpleasant surprises, and ensure the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.

Warranty Inspection

Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road. We will contact and remind you about our “One-Year Warranty Inspection”.

Commercial Inspections and Condominiums

In addition to residential inspections, we also provide inspections for retail businesses, office space and condominiums. Whether you need an inspection prior to purchasing or renting a commercial space, or want to perform a thorough sweep of your property for potential maintenance needs, , Inc. are just the professionals you need – our thorough commercial inspections will enable you to make the best possible decisions regarding purchases, rentals or maintenance scheduling.

Special Problem Solving Inspections and Forensic Investigations

We also inspect and advise on difficult special problems such as water leakage, wet basements, energy loss, noises, odors…all sorts of things, without the pressure of a contractor trying to make a sale.

Environmental Hazards

Our job as your professional home inspector is to alert you, to the extent possible, to unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house. See our Environmental Hazards page for more information.

Swimming Pool Inspections

It is best to obtain independent advice on the pool condition (without any interest in performing repairs.)
