Portland Home Inspection Services
You will receive an unbiased, visual home inspection.
The home will be assessed from roof to foundation to identify safety issues and describe the current conditions on the property. This includes:
Roof • Gutters • Chimney • Foundation • Siding • Attic • Crawlspace • Mechanicals • Plumbing operation at receptacles • Electrical panel, lights, and circuits • Appliance Operation • Window operation and integrity • Entry and interior doors • Interior Surfaces • and more!
An average inspection takes 2-3 hours onsite. We encourage you to allow time to attend at least the final portion of the home inspection. This allows us to walk through the home with you, pointing out findings and explaining elements of the report.
The following is a short description of some of our inspection services:
Buyer’s Home Inspection (Pre-closing Inspection)
Sometimes referred to as a “general home inspection,” these are scheduled prior to closing on either brand new or existing houses. The inspection covers hundreds of components in the home and includes a written report, with photos, clearly outlining safety concerns and the current condition of the home. The report gives buyers the information they need to make the best decision and prepare for future maintenance.
Seller’s Home Inspection (Pre-listing Inspection)
A general home inspection completed prior to listing or selling the home to give current owners an idea of maintenance items to address. A pre-listing inspection can help sell the home because it provides potential buyers with confidence in the condition of the home. It can reduce time spent in contract negotiation because an unbiased, independent inspector has reviewed all major systems.
Warranty Home Inspection (Builder Warranty Inspection)
Most home builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of the home. Near the end of the warranty we recommend an inspection to assist with preparation of a list of items to present to the contractor.
Construction Home Inspection (New Construction Phase / Draw Inspections)
Maintenance Home Inspection
These inspections can help home owners identify issues in their home that need maintenance or replacement. They can help to identify issues that if repaired now can help the home owner avoid large, expensive repairs in the future. Home owners find these inspections helpful in determining the priority of any home repairs or improvements.
