Your insurance company may require that you have your roof inspected by a qualified and/or licensed inspector. This is being requested because they would like to know when the last time your roof was replaced or repairs were made to your roof. They would also like to know what kind of condition the roof is in. If the roof is in poor condition they may choose to not write your insurance policy. They may also require it be upgraded or fixed before writing your insurance policy. Our inspectors use the approved form and take all the required photos to satisfy your insurance company.
An 11th Month Warranty Inspection is conducted specifically to benefit new homeowners that have lived in their residence for slightly less than one year. Builders and selected subcontractors typically extend a one year warranty to the first/new homeowner covering many aspects of a new home. An 11th Month Warranty Inspection creates a detailed "punch list", where items that need attention are called out. This punch list might then be discussed and shared with the builder before the warranty period expires.
Home inspections have the power to send all parties back to the negotiation table. As such, savvy sellers are taking the precautionary step of having an inspection done before listing the home for sale. Real estate professionals say that having a home inspection prior to listing can offer many benefits to the seller. Sellers who have a home inspection upfront also can identify any major problems that could potentially derail a sale later on at the closing table.
Infrared (IR) or (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows our thermal imaging inspectors to show homeowners things about their homes that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods . Using an infrared camera to locate areas of moisture intrusion, wet insulation and electrical hotspots are quick, accurate and inexpensive compared to other methods. Since IR imaging allows problem areas to be located before severe symptoms appear, significant damage can be avoided by catching and addressing issues as they develop.
