Home Inspection

Our focus is to assist you in making an informed decision on the property you are considering for purchase, we do this by providing you with a thorough inspection of the thousands of components it takes to make a home function safely and efficiently.   


Our home inspection provides you a detailed evaluation of the home’s current condition, including major components and systems, and identify defects and deficiencies and identify possible future expenditures so you can negotiate and/or budget for these expenses.

Our complete home inspection and detailed narrative report will assist you in being more confident and better informed based on the information your home yields, as we inspect and evaluate the hundreds of components.

We utilized the latest technology in inspection tools such as gas and carbon leak detectors, infrared cameras, Mavic Pro drone for hard to reach roofs, electrical and GFCI testers, high-resolution digital camera for documenting deficiencies and AHIT state-of-the-art inspection reporting software 


These roof photos were taken using our DJI Mavic Pro drone.
