My Standard Home Inspection

I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.

I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.

As a Certified Professional Inspector trained by InterNACHI, I adhere to their comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I will inspect all of the following when visible and accessible:

  • Roof
  • Structural Components
  • Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
  • Exterior Cladding, including EIFS
  • Porch & Deck
  • Attached Garage & Driveway
  • Foundation
  • Basement/Crawlspace
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing System
  • HVAC System
  • Interior, including:
  • Built-In Appliances
  • Ceilings, Floors & Walls
  • Windows/Glazing
  • Doors

Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.

For the Homeowner

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or a veteran homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some require more frequent attention. I’ll identify any outstanding issues and educate you about what should be done to keep your home in top condition year-round.

For the Home Seller

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. My Seller’s Pre-Listing Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.

Demonstrate to them that their trust in you is justified by referring them to Watchdog Home Inspections. My experience, training and professionalism will deliver the information your clients need.
