Inspections

Print

 Peace of Mind Home Inspections does not have a goal of helping a sale go through or stopping a sale from taking place.  I am here to provide as much information regarding the property as possible so the buyer can make an informed decision.

  I welcome clients to be present for a walk through after performing the actual inspection.  Often questions about a property can be more easily addressed in person.

That being said, the following is what you can expect from Peace of Mind Home Inspections

1)  A thorough, non-invasive, visual inspection of the property and its components. 

2)  A detailed written inspection with a component checklist and a repair/replace summary.

3)  A one-on-one walk through or telephone conference to discuss the report findings.

4)  "Service after the Sale" - I am available to help with any questions you may have down-the-road.


What's in the Report?

 A PMHI Whole-Home Inspection report will examine the following areas of the home in detail:

  1) ROOFING

  2) EXTERIOR

  3) GARAGE

  4) INTERIORS

  5) STRUCTURAL

  6) PLUMBING

  7) ELECTRICAL

  8) HEATING & AC

  9) INSULATION & VENTILATION

10) KITCHEN APPLIANCES

The report includes descriptions, locations, and pictures to fully illustrate the the condition of the home.

 

When to Inspect

  Buying Your Home.
When buying a home, you want to avoid any potential pitfalls that could put your significant investment at risk.  My goal isn't to stop you from buying your dream home or encourage you buy a particular home.  When Peace of Mind Home Inspections inspects a home before your buy, you'll get a detailed report of the current condition of the home.  My experience in property management, maintenance, and repair translates to accurate and reliable information for you.  You'll be able to make an offer on a house with greater certainty about the condition of the home and the offer you make.

  Selling Your Home
When it comes time to sell your home, Peace of Mind Home Inspections can help you assess the current state of your home to help you sell your home quickly and avoid common pitfalls in the negotiation process.  By understanding what repairs should be made on your home before potential buyers spot them, you provide buyers with confidence that your property is in tip-top shape before the negotiations begin.  With the rising popularity of home repair TV programs, buyers are more wary than ever.  Give them the peace of mind that your home is ready to sell and is their best investment. 

  Owning a home.
Even if you are not currently buying or selling a property, a home inspection will help you protect your investment and potentially avoid costly repairs in the future.  I'm here to provide information, not to sell you on any repairs or services.  You may want a whole home inspection to ensure that you're doing everything possible to keep your home in the best condition.  Or you may want a partial inspection on one area of the house.  Maybe you've had other contractors try to find a solution with no luck.  Whatever the case, Peace of Mind Home Inspections can help you maintain and improve your home--often at substantial savings when a small preventative fix can avoid a costly catastrophe later.

The best time to get a home inspected is before you need one!  A home inspection helps you better understand the current condition of any property.

The old cliché "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is a time honored phrase when it comes to owning property. Knowing how to address concerns before they are catastrophes is the goal of any home inspection.

Types of Inspections

 Whole Home Inspections
Just like the name indicates, this inspection covers foundation to roof top, inside and out, virtually all parts of the home: Roof, Exterior, Garage, Interior, Structural Components, Plumbing, Electrical, Heating & A/C, Insulation & Ventilation, and Built-in Appliances.  A whole home inspection from Peace of Mind Home Inspections includes a detailed report broken down by category in language you can easily understand.  Each component in your home is inspected and its current condition is assessed as serviceable or in need of repair or replacement.  If the item is functioning, but nearing the end of its useful life; then it too will be noted.

 Partial Home Inspections
Partial inspections focus on specific areas of concern with the property. From footings to roof vents, and everything in between, a partial inspection can help you avoid headaches from those troubling aspects of your property. Peace of Mind Home Inspections partial inspections provide you with the same detailed analysis of your property as the whole home inspections, but they just focus on the parts of the property that you designate.

 Termite Inspections
 An invasion of termites can destroy a home.  In the United States, termites do more damage to properties than natural disasters.  Spotting them early can nearly always prevent major damage from taking place.  Knowing when, where, and how termites destroy wood is essential for a successful inspection.  I will examine the house looking for any signs of termites, damage, or previous treatments.

  Radon Inspections


  Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water, entering the air you breathe. Radon is colorless and odorless. It can infiltrate any type of building - homes, offices, and schools - and build up to high levels. But you and your family will most likely receive your greatest exposure where you spend most of your time... your home.  Fortunately, when professionally tested, you can accurately determine the concentration of Radon present in a home and take action to mitigate if levels are unsafe.


  Mold/Air Quality Inspections


  Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed.  While the whole house inspection will indicate any excessive moisture problems; air samples can detect any airborne spores.  Surface samples can identify the type of mold and it's significance.
