Home Inspections

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.  We use the Standards of Practice created by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), which can be foundhere. Specifically, a home inspection includes:

  • Structural Systems - foundation, framing, crawlspace, attic
  • Exterior - wall coverings, doors, windows, decks, steps, walkways, driveways, vegetation and grading
  • Roof System - roof coverings, drainage system, chimneys, skylights and other roof penetrations
  • Plumbing System - interior water supply and distribution system, faucets and drains, vents and flues, water heating equipment, fuel storage and distribution systems, sumps
  • Electrical System - service entrance and conductors, cables and raceways, over-current protection, ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI's), arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCI’s)
  • Heating System - heating equipment, vents, flues and chimneys
  • Air Conditioning System - central and thru-the-wall equipment
  • Interior - walls, ceilings, floors, doors, windows
  • Insulation and Ventilation - insulation and vapor retarders in unfinished spaces, attic and foundation ventilation
  • Fireplaces and Solid Fuel Burning Appliances - system components, vents, flues, chimneys


All inspections come with a detailed report with detailed pictures. The report is usually emailed to the client within 24 hours after the inspection is completed. The report is generated as a PDF file that can be saved, printed, and emailed as needed.


Please request an inspection for an estimate.
