The Home Examiner brings our clients the very best home inspection services Michigan has to offer, helping home-buyers conquer their fears and uncertainties on the way to a protected and ultimately successful investment. We adhere to ASHI’s rigorous Standard of Practice.
Our detailed inspection for home-buyers is a step-by-step visual evaluation of the property’s readily accessible components. An inspection report will be waiting for you while we’re still on-site, or we can send it to you via email.
The inspection includes these components:
- Roofing System
- Structural Components
- Foundation & Crawl Space
- Exterior (doors, windows, cladding)
- Garage, Shed, & Other Outbuildings
- Driveways & Walkways
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
- Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
- Electrical System
- Heating & Cooling Systems
- Plumbing System
- Built-in Appliances
The following tools may be used during the inspection at no extra cost to assist us with providing the most informative inspection report possible: thermal imaging, aerial drone photography, moisture meter, carbon monoxide detector, and gas leak detector.
ADDITIONAL INSPECTION SERVICES
To help you out with selling your home, we can comprehensively inspect the property’s readily accessible areas on a day prior to the listing being published on the local market. We’ll provide you with extensive knowledge about the home’s current condition so that you can accurately inform prospective buyers—while also making any repairs that you deem necessary in order to get the most out of a final sale.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection service is for new home construction, and it needs to be scheduled before the builder’s final walkthrough while negotiations are still ongoing. We’ll thoroughly evaluate the condition of the readily accessible systems and structures, gathering knowledge about potential defects so that you can take that information to the seller in the event that repairs are warranted.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
Before your new home’s warranty expires, let us take a thorough look at the property to determine if there are any repair or maintenance issues that need to be addressed. If any issues are identified, and they happen to be covered under the warranty agreement, you may stand to save a substantial sum of money.
Home Maintenance Inspection
A home is only as good as the attention it’s given, and that’s why routine maintenance is essential. Through this inspection service, we’ll help you learn about your home’s current maintenance needs by thoroughly inspecting the entire property, including the condition of the various mechanical systems. We’ll then carefully communicate our findings, ensuring that you know what to and when to do it in order to improve and maintain the property.
Loan Draw Inspection
A whole lot can go sideways when a home is being constructed, and that includes the misuse of loans. This inspection service will help to prevent that from happening so that litigation can be avoided. We’ll review the loan agreement and budget and then proceed to inspect the build site at multiple phases, ensuring that the progress of construction and the materials stored on-site fall in line with the terms of any funds being disbursed.
After the seller of your prospective home has reported back to you that repairs are finished, we can return to the property for a follow-up inspection. We’ll be looking specifically at the repaired or improved areas to make sure that any issues have been resolved and that we don’t see anything else of concern.
An invisible and odorless gas that can cause health issues is nothing to take lightly. That’s why we offer Radon Testing for homes, using state-of-the-art equipment to obtain an accurate radon reading. If radon levels exceed a safe threshold, we will consult with you about how to go about seeking out radon mitigation.
This inspection service is a comprehensive assessment of a home that will reveal existing termite damage if present, as well as evidence of ongoing infestations. A 1-Year Termite Treatment Warranty is included with this inspection.
