The construction phase of a new home offers a unique opportunity to ensure that everything is built to exact specifications. Our pre-drywall inspections are conducted just after the major components like doors, windows, and roofing are installed, but before the drywall is put up.

Our experienced inspectors provide an in-depth assessment to ensure the construction adheres to the required standards, offering you peace of mind that your new home is being built properly and efficiently.

Even if you're a seasoned homeowner, our inspection can provide crucial insights into the health of your property.

These photos can be useful for promotional purposes or additional documentation, providing a comprehensive perspective of the property.

Secure the purity of your water supply with our meticulous well inspection service.
A septic dye test is a method used to assess the condition of a septic system by introducing a colored dye into the system. The dye is flushed into the plumbing and, if any leaks or malfunctions are present, the colored water will surface, indicating potential issues with the system's integrity or drainage. This test helps to identify any problems with the septic system, such as leaks or drainage issues, by tracing the flow of the dye and locating any areas where it emerges.

Frequently Asked Questions
Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience, but we’re here to ensure you know what to expect during your home inspection.
A home inspection includes checking for any structural issues such as foundation cracks, roof leaks, plumbing issues, electrical wiring, heating/cooling systems, insulation, windows, doors, chimneys, etc. Depending on how big the property is, a home inspection typically takes 2-3 hours.
Ensure all inspection points are free from clutter, including any closets that might lead to a crawlspace or attic, and clearing some space around your home’s perimeter. It’s also important to check the functionality of all built-in appliances, electric, and gas. If you don’t plan to attend the inspection, make sure your inspector has access to the home, and all pets are properly contained or moved.
A home doesn’t pass or fail an inspection. Instead, a home inspection is a thorough audit of your home’s components. In most cases, there will be concerns marked on your home inspection report, but these are strictly informative.
While you can legally skip a home inspection in many cases, doing so could mean you may end up buying a home that has major issues that need to be fixed.
While a home inspector may recommend some minor repairs, they are not qualified to make major repairs. He or she can provide information about what needs to be repaired — and it might be helpful to know that information — but the decision to actually do the work lies solely with the homeowner. Not only does this give you the freedom to choose your contractors, but it also helps prevent a conflict of interest.
It is important to note that no house is perfect. At the end of the home inspection process, we will provide a detailed report that describes the physical condition of the property, with images and videos highlighting what may need repair or replacement. The information provided is to allow a potential buyer to make an informed decision about moving forward with the transaction. It is not pass or fail.
