Before deciding to put your house on the market, it’s the best practice to have your own home inspection. It will make the whole selling process much easier. Find out about any hidden problems and get them corrected in advance, on your own terms.
One of the key benefits of having the home inspection before putting it up for sale is that if there are any problems discovered that need to be repaired, you can have the repairs done yourself, on your own schedule and at a price you are happy with. Eliminate costly surprises down the road and have the sale run smoothly.
Most builders provide one year warranty on newly built homes. So it’s best practice to schedule your home inspection before the home builder’s warranty expires, usually a month before the end-date. That’s why it is sometimes also called “the 11th month” warranty inspection.
Our clients save a lot of money and future headaches by choosing to inspect their new home. A one-year builder warranty inspection will give you the knowledge you need to make sure your new home is of the quality you expect. It will help you engage your home builder to repair any defects the home-building company should be responsible for.

A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A sewer line is often one of the most costly things to repair in a home. Getting a sewer scope inspection can help you avoid investing in a home that has serious issues with the sewer/septic system.
Sewer-scoping the line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and homebuyers to be aware of. For example, if there is a damp depression in the lawn above the sewer line, or if there is backflow into the home, a sewer scope inspection can be critical to identifying and confirming these problems, which must be addressed immediately.
We offer sewer scope along with the standard home inspection so that our clients save money and time requesting it together. Stand-alone service is also available.
Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that causes thousands of cancer-related deaths every year. In fact, according to the EPA, you are more likely to die from radon than house fires or drunk drivers – so protect yourself with a professional radon test.
We offer radon testing that will give you the information you need to make the right decisions.
