Testimonials

What our Customers say

This is THE best experience I had with home inspectors during my entire career. Extremely professional, responsible, and knowledgeable, and friendly! They worked diligently to inform me and my client and make sure that we understood the entire process.

To start with, Chris was fantastic in getting me an appointment so quickly, during a period where inspections were in high demand. He not only did answer the phone after business hours, but he went beyond and above to accommodate.

Jake was the home inspector, and he was great to work with. He was very detailed in his inspection. The report came quickly, s]with such an easy to use, friendly interface and easy to understand. And to have them available to answer any questions we had, was a huge plus. Two thumbs up for Jake and Chris. I would 100% recommend it.

Findings from the Field

Foundation Cracking

Foundation Cracking: Minor

Foundation cracking is normal in most homes. Sometimes the cracking is due to concrete shrinkage but sometimes it’s due to settling of the home or the lot itself. The cracks in this foundation would be considered minor and something to monitor over time. If this crack widens, then we would recommend contacting a structural engineer to evaluate the cause and propose suggestions for repair. If you’re concerned about the condition of your foundation, contact us to schedule a foundation inspection.

In this example, you can see that roof shingles are missing which can lead to moisture intrusion into the attic and eventually the home. Getting a roof inspection can help locate issues such as these and help prevent costly damage to the home’s interior.
