The structure, sheathing, flashing, fascia, ventilation, and gutters are inspected along with chimneys and overhead electric service attachments. We walk every roof we can and put our hands on shingles when we cannot. We specialize in Metal Roofing and use Drone Aerial Photography when we are unable to access any area. The roofing system can be expensive to replace or repair and providing a detailed description of its condition is the goal of every report.
Foundations, Crawlspaces, Piers, & slabs
Ensuring your home is on a firm foundation is paramount. We like to search crawl spaces and dirty places to find structural deficiencies, moisture intrusion, settlement, mold, improper grading, lack of vapor barriers, and more. We go into every crawlspace that has access so you can have peace of mind with your purchase.
We test the Heating and AC units for proper ventilation, functionality, short-cycling, tonnage to square footage, and air flow.
