Home Inspection Upgrades:
The home warranty inspection includes a comprehensive home inspection, infrared inspection and pest and termite inspection.
Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show homeowners things about their homes that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods. infrared inspection can identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.
This service is available with a home inspection only. Not to be purchased as a stand alone service.
This inspection includes a visual inspection, outlining if there are previous (or active) signs of pest entry of the home, to include but not limited to, rodents, bird, roaches and termites.
A septic inspection is used to locate system components, observe how the system functions and if the system is in need of repair to function properly using visual-only, non-invasive inspection techniques. Occasionally, the tanks and risers are buried and the locations cannot be determined, in which case it has likely not been pumped or inspected in several years. The inspection includes running all of the plumbing fixtures, looking for effluent at the surface of the drainfield, assessing if the tank covers are watertight and in fair condition, and checking equipment for safety or mechanical issues. We also look for proper clearances to property lines, wells and other water sources to ensure the system is not creating an environmental impact.
This is a visual inspection only.
If an inspector has to return to the listed property to complete an inspection due to (but not limited to) limited access, utilities shut-off, or appliance/equipment not installed at the time of inspection, there will be an additional return trip fee.
