You’ve found your dream home. You have a realtor who will fight for your interests. Now all you need is a certified home inspector who will protect your assets, work around your schedule, and answer your questions in plain English.

  • Home Inspections

Old or new, condo or estate, let our certified home detectives remove the mystery. Our inspections exceed all industry standards and provide you with peace of mind. As long as weather and safety permits, we climb every accessible roof and enter every traversable crawlspace. We inspect:


  • Pre-Listing Inspections

Get the best price possible for your house by letting us inspect it before you list. We can help you find the quick fixes that will save you thousands at the settlement table!

  • Wood Destroying Insect Inspections

Termites, beetles, carpenter ants and bees – let our detectives find the clues these pests leave, and save you heartache, anxiety, thousands of dollars.

  • New Construction Reviews

    Why inspect a newly constructed house? Because mistakes are all too common and you are investing hundreds of thousands to ensure it is perfect. Builders can use the wrong materials, try to rush a job, or not live up to your expectations – a private home inspection is your guarantee against any problems! Our inspections are conducted in 3 phases:

    • Pre-Drywall Inspection: Foundation walls are inspected for proper installation and size. Defects in framing, insulation, ventilation, etceteras will be noted. All major systems are checked, including, structure, plumbing, cooling, heating, electrical and roofing.
    • Pre-Settlement Inspection: All components are checked. We produce a pre-purchase punchlist detailing any incomplete or improper installations, items to be addressed, and a full explanation of systems and proper operation and maintenance.
    • One Year Checklist Inspection: Prior to the expiration of the one-year warranty, all components are examined and a punchlist of all incomplete, insufficient or failing items is produced for your protection

  • Pool & Spa Inspections
