My name is Shawn Santos, Founder and lead inspector. I understand buying a house can be a very stressful situation. Allow us to take one of the most nerve racking aspects in the home buying process and turn it into a learning opportunity. We don't simply walk into a home, and rely solely on finding things with our eyes, but we use top of the line tools to help us find things that our eyes cannot see. Whether its how we use our drones to inspect roofs that we cant walk due to the height, or the variety of moisture meters which can detect moisture in walls up to 1 inch deep, or how we use infrared technology to identify hidden leaks, or areas in the home which are subject to poor energy efficiency. Some of the major systems we inspect in every home can be seen below.
Water is a homes #1 enemy, making sure there is no signs of water intrusion is imperative to help the longevity of a home. Not only is it imperative to check any visible plumbing drainage's, but also the use of moisture meters and other devices which help find any leakage.
Home electrical fires account for an estimated 51,000 fires each year, nearly than 500 deaths, more than 1,400 injuries, and $1.3 billion in property damage. Don't become part of the statistic. Whether you hire me, or another home inspector. Insure that they do a thorough check on all visible receptacles.
Your family depends on your heating and air conditioning to help keep you comfortable when the elements are unbearable. Make sure that the homes HVAC system is in good condition, properly sized for your home, and is not past its life expectancy.
