Real Estate Professionals and Government Housing Officials (including FHA, HUD and VA) recommend that all homebuyers have their prospective property examined by an independent LICENSED Home Inspector before the final purchase commitment.

If you are selling a home, it’s also a good idea to have it inspected to prevent any surprises prior to closing.

A LICENSED Home Inspector will:

Help disclose hidden defects that the Seller may not even be aware of. Help prevent costly, unexpected repairs after you take possession. Provide you with a valuable tool for price negotiation.
Give you piece of mind about your decision to buy.

We carry $500,000.00 worth of Errors & Omissions insurance for you (and your Realtor’s) protection and are licensed by the State of Ohio to test for Radon Gas.

Besides the General Home Inspection and Radon Testing, we provide our clients with “full service” including; well performance + water analysis. We can also schedule a Wood Destroying Insect
Inspection with a local (LICENSED) company and make sure they are there the same time we are doing the general home inspection. That way, you don’t have to come back a second time for the WDI. You also get to personally meet the WDI Inspector
and address any concerns you may have regarding termites, carpenter ants, powder post beetles or carpenter bees.

All of our home inspections conform to the “Code of Ethics” and ”Standards of Practice” established by The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the single largest Professional Home Inspector organization in the U.S.

Our inspections take approximately two to three hours and include roof, gutters, chimney, drainage grading, foundation, basement, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, attic interior insulation & ventilation, walls, floors, ceilings, windows & doors.

We also check any appliances that stay with the home. We use the latest testing equipment including IR Laser Thermometers, Moisture Meters, Carbon Monoxide Detectors, Combustible Gas Detectors and of course Digital Cameras.

Once the inspection is completed, we will sit down with you and completely review the entire Report and give you an estimated cost on any of the mechanical systems of the home that may need repairs or replacing within the next 3 years.

We strongly encourage you to attend the inspection. That way we can immediately address any questions or concerns you have regarding the home. It’s always best to see and hear things firsthand.

The Inspection Report is “computerized ” and is sent to you electronically within 24 hours of completion of the Inspection. The defects are printed in RED in the Report and photos of the defects and areas of concern are included.

For your convenience at the end of the Report is an easy to read “Summary” listing items that were “Not Satisfactory” and “Safety or Health” defects.

As an informed buyer, you should deal with professionals in all aspects of the transaction. This includes hiring a LICENSED Home Inspector. Don’t short-change yourself on the single largest investment you’ll make in your life. Get a professional home inspection.

To make it more convenient, we offer flexible scheduling: 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We also accept cash, personal checks and all Major Credit Cards.
