The Home Inspection Process
You Setup an Appointment
Contact Us to setup a home inspection with one of our licensed Professional Engineers. We offer a variety of inspections such as foundation, structural, roof, and mechanical/electrical inspections.
We Inspect Your House
During the inspection, you are invited to ask questions or express concerns regarding the property. The engineer will provide a verbal summary of the inspection results and answer any questions.
We Create the Report
Within a few days, a written report (complete with repair recommendations) will be made available. All reports are stamped by a licensed Professional Engineer and meet the requirements of FHA, VA, and most mortgage companies.
A structural inspection consists of a review of the overall structure of a house.
This includes concrete slabs, foundation walls, exposed floor frame, interior of the home, roof rafters and exterior grade around the perimeter of the house.
An inspection of the foundation is a subset of the full structural inspection and only includes a review of the parts of the house dealing with the foundation.
Roof Covering Review
A roof covering review consists of examining the roof structure and checking the present condition of the roof material, observed from the ground provided the surface is visible.
Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing (MEP) Review
This consists of checking all major (exposed) plumbing items, heating and cooling systems, electrical service and built-in kitchen appliances.
In order for an accurate inspection to be completed, we request the water, gas and electricity be turned on 24 hours prior to the inspection.
Single Discipline Review
This includes either a Structural, Roof, OR Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing Inspection.
Structural & MEP Review
Includes both a Structural Inspection and a Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing Inspection.
Structural, Roof, & MEP Review
This includes a visual inspection of the Structure, Roof Covering, and Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing systems.
