Our inspection services are thorough and non-invasive, ensuring that you’re able to become educated on the quality of a property without the inspection process straining your homebuying efforts.

General Home Inspection
Our residential property inspection consists of a careful evaluation of most visible and readily accessible components of a home. Each inspection includes a free thermal imaging scan to check for any areas of moisture intrusion, energy loss, or electrical hotspots. Once we leave the property, we’ll immediately get to work on a detailed report of our findings that you’ll be able to access the following day.
We inspect these areas:
- Structural Components
- Foundation & Crawl Space
- Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
- Exterior (doors, windows, siding)
- Driveways & Walkways
- Deck & Patio
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs)
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
- HVAC Systems
- Built-in Kitchen Appliances
We also offer the following inspection services:
Before you list your home, we recommend scheduling this inspection so that you can have a full understanding of your property before negotiations commence with prospective buyers. This will help the entire process go more smoothly by giving you a chance to arrange repairs as you deem necessary and to inform buyers of any pre-existing issues.
New Construction Inspection
As construction winds down on your new home, it’s a good idea to contact us to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the property. We’ll assess the condition of the structure and currently installed mechanical systems for any material defects or safety concerns that need to be addressed before the contractors finish up.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
This inspection is for clients who own a new home that’s still protected by the builder’s 1-year warranty. Before that first year slips you by, we’re able to evaluate your home for any issues that have emerged since you moved in. If we discover any defective components, the cost of repair or replacement could be covered in part or in full depending on the terms of your warranty.
A 4-Point Inspection involves a careful visual evaluation of four critical areas of a home: the roofing, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing systems. Many insurance agencies require this inspection before they’ll agree to terms on a policy, particularly if you’re looking to invest in an older home.
When you need a component re-inspected after it has been repaired or replaced since our original home inspection, we’re more than happy to accommodate. We’ll evaluate the component in question for proper installation and to ensure that it meets every critical safety standard—giving you peace of mind with your current or prospective investment.
Termites are a burden for homeowners each and every year—and it’s not just because of the cost of an exterminator. Termites can and will cause serious structural damage to a home if they’re able to maintain an extended infestation. We’re trained to assess a home for any indications of previous termite damage as well as signs of ongoing infestations.
When Honest Home Inspections evaluates a property, we meticulously investigate every detail—ensuring that you receive all of the details you need to make an informed decision about a purchase. Contact us today to request an inspection.
