We'll begin by carefully taking a look at the exterior of the property. All of the exterior features of the property will be inspected including driveways, drainage systems, grade, vegetation, and fencing. The entire roof will be inspected along with chimneys, skylights, vent pipes and any other equipment mounted there or protruding through the roof. Next is the interior. We usually work through the building in a logical sequence inspecting one room at a time and one floor at a time. Appliances and bath fixtures will all be tested as well as accessible electrical outlets, windows and doors. During the detailed interior and exterior checks, we'll perform an exhaustive evaluation of the plumbing, electrical, and heating/cooling systems of the home.

At the conclusion of the inspection, we will brief you on our findings. That same day, we will send you an electronic version of the entire report. Click HERE
