Inspection Service Descriptions

 

Fee Adjustments

We reserve the right to adjust the inspection fee if the property is deemed different than scheduled regardless of MLS description. This includes correction for type of dwelling, square footage, pools, guest houses, age, condition, etc.

Houses over 5,000 Square Feet

Larger houses will most likely have more complicated roofs, multiple HVAC and water heater systems, numerous bathrooms, larger attics and crawlspaces and many more items to check than a moderately sized house (windows, doors, garages, receptacles, etc). We therefore often send two inspectors.

Two Houses on one property

If two dwellings on a single property (one assessor’s parcel number) each have a unique address, they will generally have separate electric meters and are considered separate houses each requiring their own inspection and pricing. Example would be addresses of “123 Main St.” and “123-1/2 Main St.”

Limited Scope

Limited Scope inspections are available for one system or component like a roof, plumbing or electrical evaluation at a cost of $125. We also offer a major systems evaluation that is taylor-made for distressed properties and includes evaluations of the roof, attic, foundation, electrical and plumbing at a cost of $250.

Verbal Only Inspections

Geared towards investors and home sellers alike who do not need a full-blown inspection with written report, these inspections include a limited verbal-only consultation with one of our certified inspectors. Be prepared to take notes during a fast-paced and informative whole house walk-through.

Condo/Townhouse

Since Condo/Townhouse buyers will only own the inside of the structure, our Interior Only inspections do not include the evaluation of common areas or components controlled or maintained by an HOA including the roof, grounds & exterior cladding and mechanical devices. For those buyers wanting more, we also offer a Full Inspection for an additional $75.

Multi-Unit

Multi-Unit inspections are for single properties containing 2 or more units and unlike inspections for condos and townhouses, these inspections include roof, exterior and common areas. *Additional Charges (see above) may apply and depending on complex size, additional inspectors may be required.

Crawlspace

Because some homes are built on a slab foundation and do not require a crawlspace inspection, our applicable base prices do not include accessing the crawlspace which is reflected in the lower price. If your prospective new home has a crawlspace, simply add $60 to the applicable base price.

Older Homes

As the awareness of deficient home construction methodology, materials and safety issues has increased over the years, so too can the consequences if corrective measures have not been implemented. Examples we report on are; 2-wire electrical systems, hardboard siding and asbestos building products.

Tile Roof

A composition roof is generally easy to access, takes little experience to move around quickly and can be efficiently inspected in short order. A tile roof on the other hand if fully inspected as it should be, is often more difficult to safely access, takes experience to navigate without damaging the tiles and is not conducive to moving about quickly.

Detached Garage

A detached garage much like an outbuilding requires a separate roof/gutter, exterior cladding, foundation and electrical inspection and in some instances the structure was built after the house with different materials and methodology.

Log/Timber-Frame Home

Log, timber-framed and post & beam homes have some characteristics that are quite different from conventional homes and it is essential that your home inspector be aware of them. Things like settling as it relates to moisture content, construction techniques that promote wood decay and proper joinery and mechanical connectors are all things that our certified log home inspectors look for.

Distressed Home

A distressed property is based solely on the overall condition of the home and not just its current status. It is a house that for whatever reason has a multitude of deficiencies that will need to be addressed. So it can be a short-sale, a foreclosure, an REO, a rental, or just a house that has been severely neglected or mistreated (see Limited Scope).

Re-Inspection

A Re-Inspection will occasionally be desired by the buyer or required by the lender when confirmation of a repair made on a report deficiency is needed or when a particular area of the home was not accessible at time of inspection but has subsequently been made available.

Cabana / Pool House

A Cabana or Pool House is a structure adjacent to a pool with enclosed space that often includes a bathroom, but without defined bedrooms or a kitchen and not generally intended for overnight occupancy.

Guest Suite / Guest Cottage

A Guest Suite is an area within a home that has amenities for someone to live there such as a small kitchenette, bathroom and living space with separate entrance whereas as Guest Cottage is a separate structure without a separate mailing address and electric meter but with a bathroom and kitchenette normally intended for short term occupancy only.

Printed Full Color Report

Many buyers are satisfied with an electronic PDF report or have received a printed copy from their agent and do not want one from us. If they do, we are more than happy to send our file to a local printer that will produce a full color report with plastic comb binding, front & back covers including clear sheet overlays which typically runs us about $40 with no markup.

Commercial Buildings

Commercial property inspections typically include evaluating ADA access and public safety compliance, robust HVAC and electrical systems requiring specific knowledge, and sometimes different building techniques such as industrial cold-formed steel framing. We have the experience and are well-equiped to inspect your next commercial property.
