Additonal Services

Modern Digital Reporting

I use state of the art software to generate a detailed report that is backed up with all my training, written with the client in mind, and not emotionally driven. My reports include high resolution images and details descriptions of my findings with a focus on health and safety, and they are completely digital so they can easily be accessed and shared.


Aerial Drone Roof Inspections

Aerial Drone technology gives our inspector high-definition photography images. We adheres to FAA Flight regulations for Drone roof inspections. FAA regulations restrict the proximity to airports and designated “no fly zones”. When a home is within those FAA restricted areas our inspectors use other methods to inspect roof surfaces.


Builder’s Warranty

We complete your Builder’s Warranty Inspection beginning the 10th month after your closing date. This allows Builders the opportunity to complete repairs prior to the expiration of your warranty on the 12th month.


Chinese Drywall Inspectios

What is Chinese Drywall? The term “Chinese Drywall” (or tainted drywall or wallboard) refers to drywall imported from China from 2001 to 2007 which contains contaminants that are emitting gases which usually (but not always) create a noxious odor and corrode copper and other metal surfaces, thereby damaging your air conditioner, electrical wiring, copper plumbing, appliances and electronics.

Symptoms typically appear in about 24 months. Corrosion of electrical wiring can hamper the effectiveness of your smoke detection equipment and can create a risk of fire. Chinese drywall is also very friable, which means it is in a state where small particles can easily become dislodged with little friction, thus enabling them to easily enter your lungs. For this reason, even after Chinese drywall is removed, the toxic drywall particulate may remain unless properly removed. To date, there is no proven or approved remediation protocol and, therefore, one should exercise caution before removing Chinese drywall and remediating one’s home.

Foreclosure inspections help Mortgage Lenders look for problems with the roof, plumbing, and other issues that may result in a financial loss. Assessing the condition of foreclosed properties, provide potential buyers with a list of any issues and defects, document deteriorating conditions and water intrusion possibilities that may have occurred during the properties vacancy.


Foundation Baseline Report (FBR)

This service can be added to each inspection for a nominal fee. The baseline reading is done using a Zip Level Pro 2000. The purpose of the FBR is to acquire a baseline reading of the foundation on the day of the inspection. This information is added to the report and saved for future use by our company.

In about a year we will contact you via email or phone to schedule a second reading at a price to be determined (Pricing is determined by square feet of structure).

This second reading will give us the information needed to see if you have had any type of movement, whether minor or major in your foundation. The information that is gathered could discover any possible foundation movement and allow you to take corrective measure prior to complete failure.

    Infrared can provide extra comfort in the home inspection process by providing a quick, non-invasive picture of what the human eye cannot see.
