Pre-Purchase Inspection: Every home buyer should have all the major components and systems of the house thoroughly investigated. We always perform Infrared Thermal Imaging on our inspections for the interior walls and ceilings and electrical systems. Every report for all inspections is a Fully Narrative Report, not a simple checklist.
Frequently, our inspections discover deficiencies in the structures that would have cost our clients thousands of dollars in unexpected costs and we always provide helpful alternatives and solutions to the deficiencies discovered during the inspection. After the inspection report is delivered to you within 24 hours, or less, we are available to you (free of charge) for questions and consultation via email or phone. All home inspections performed meet and exceed the Washington State Home Inspector Licensing & ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Our inspections and reports will reflect the most current building science and knowledge in construction defects and building performance. Call (719) 888-0565 or Schedule online for your Appointment
If you are preparing to sell your home, a pre-listing inspection can help you maximize your selling price and provide you the lead time required to repair defects that would otherwise delay or jeopardize the sale. A buyers inspector will eventually uncover the deficiencies within your home. The process is the same as a "Buyer's Inspection". Wouldn't it be better if you knew what the problems were first? Knowledge is power. Call (719) 888-0565 or Schedule online for your Appointment
