Whether you’re a realtor or an individual seller, if you’re planning to list a home, you should consider having it inspected before you put it on the market. The reason is simple—if there are structural defects or system deficiencies pre-existent in a home, a buyer may retract or change their original offer. By scheduling a Pre-Listing Inspection, you’re able to address issues ahead of time to protect the value of your property and prevent stalled negotiations.
All homes over 25 years old should have a sewer inspection performed. A sewer scope is a detailed video inspection of the home’s sewer line to the main city sewer line. The sewer pipe from the main city line to the home is the homeowner’s responsibility. Our sewer cameras will identify any defects such as, root intrusion, clogs, or broken pipes. The low cost of a sewer inspection could save a new homeowner $5,000 – $25,000 in sewer repairs. Site Tech uses state of the art sewer inspection equipment. Let us find the problem before you purchase the home.
11th Month Inspection
A brand new home is typically backed by the builder for one year after closing. Before your 1-year warranty is up, you should consider having your home professionally inspected. In an 11th Month Inspection, we’ll conduct a thorough examination of your property to determine if there are any deficiencies that have emerged since you first bought the home. By identifying issues before the warranty has expired, you’re able to consult with the builder to schedule any repairwork that should still be covered.
New Construction Inspection
Performed prior to the final walk-through, a New Construction Inspection is a fundamental service for a recently built home. When we inspect a new home, we’ll perform a comprehensive evaluation of the property, verifying that building codes are met and that there are no structural defects or safety issues that would bar the home from being move-in ready.
New Construction Phase Inspection
A New Construction Phase Inspection is an enormously beneficial asset to the ongoing construction of a property. When a Phase Inspection is scheduled, we’ll arrive on-site at several different phases of the building process to ensure that everything is up to code. We’ll check for any safety concerns or defective material, sparing building contractors from the headache of having to return in the future to correct costly issues. The phases for which we’ll inspect are as follows: pre-concrete pour, framing, finishing, and system installation.
We’re happy to offer comprehensive inspections for commercial properties of any size. Whether it’s a large-scale building for opening a big-box store, or a modest location for a small business, Site Tech Home Inspections can inspect it all. In a Commercial Inspection, we’ll carefully examine your prospective investment for any safety concerns or deficient areas. We’ll compile and deliver a detailed report of our findings so that you’re able to make an informed decision.
Pests inside a home can be a minor nuisance or a major burden when they begin to damage your investment. During a Pest Inspection, we’ll assess your home for any evidence that would suggest an infestation—whether it’s mice, termites, or any number of wood-destroying organisms. After we’ve documented our findings, we’ll discuss them with you at length so that you can use the information in your report to begin ridding your home of an existing infestation and to prevent reemergence.
Mold can cause significant damage to a home and can negatively affect the health of residents. When we test your property for mold, we’ll meticulously examine accessible areas to determine if mold has become established. With the help of a moisture meter, we’re also able to scan your home for saturated areas that could rapidly transform into the perfect habitat for mold proliferation.
Thermal Imaging, also known as infrared thermography, is a state-of-the-art detection technology that can greatly benefit a home. When we use our thermal-imaging camera to assess your home, we’re able to accurately read subtle shifts in temperature. What this means for you is that by scheduling our Thermal Imaging service, we can inform you of electrical hotspots, dampness within the walls, and inefficient areas that could be causing your air-conditioning and heating systems to work overtime.
Radon is a carcinogenic gas that emanates from the decomposition of certain types of rock and soil. When the gas seeps from the surface, it can enter a home undetected—radon is odorless and invisible. Thankfully, we have the training and equipment necessary for radon detection so that you can be certain that your home is safe from this harmful gas.
Site Tech Home Inspections strives to provide an honest and reliable service that reveals a property’s deficiencies without sensationalizing or skewing the overall condition. We want you to have an accurate depiction of your investment so that you gain the knowledge you need to make a worthwhile decision.
