SAVE TIME & MONEY WITH OUR DIGITAL INSPECTION REPORTS

An inspection typically takes several hours. You are not required to be there, but we welcome our customers who are! Either way, we give you an immediate verbal summary upon completion. The very next business day, you will receive a fully digital, internet-based report that you can browse from any computer, tablet, or smartphone. This report includes high-resolution, expanding photos accompanied by detailed explanations.

All of our home inspection reports include a Create Request List feature. The CRL allows anyone viewing the report – agents, owners, and buyers – to group important inspection findings into a separate, sharable list for maintenance requests or for post-purchase projects. Because this list is standardized for all viewers, it streamlines communication and repairs.

Maintenance Inspections

Life moves so quickly that general and even significant home maintenance can sometimes be forgotten. Furthermore, some routine home maintenance items are difficult to spot without the proper experience. Let our highly-trained inspectors give your home a check-up and help you prioritize regular home maintenance to save money and to help keep your family safe.

We can also perform these specialized inspections concurrently with general inspections and those above:

Termite Inspections

Termites and other wood-destroying insects cause millions of dollars a year in damage to buildings in North Carolina. Our inspectors are all Registered Pest Control Technicians with the NC Department of Agriculture Structural Pest Control Division.  We are affiliated with Cooper Pest Control to provide the wood-destroying insect reports (WDIR)  required by many mortgage lenders.

Radon Inspections

Radon – an odorless, colorless gas – naturally occurs in most soil. It’s also the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in North America. We can perform the EPA-recommended radon testing that determines whether or not you are being exposed to safe levels of radon within your home.
