What's Inspected and Services
Pre-sale and purchase inspections
I will conduct a thorough inspection of your home, inside and out. I plan on spending several hours in, on and around the home.
As a NACHI-certified, Washington State- licensed professional home inspector and licensed Structural Pest Inspector, I have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with a thorough and professional, non-intrusive, visual inspection of your home, from foundation up to the roof.
On the exterior of the home, I will check the walls, roof, driveway, deck, yard slope etc. I will then move inside to examine the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. The heating, air-conditioning,plumbing, and electrical systems will all be examined to ensure that they function as intended. Bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms receive a thorough check along with the attic and basement or crawl space.
