Thorough inspections of all major property components can expose unknown defects, and advise you about future maintenance for your home once the purchase is complete. Let Check It Out Home Inspections give you the information you require to make an informed purchase.
We inspect all foundations including slab on grade, post tension slab on grade, and pier and beam foundations. For the pier and beam foundations, we crawl under the house or mobile home to check it thoroughly.
We believe the best way to inspect a roof is from getting on the roof and walking or crawling. We inspect the structure from the inside and outside of the home, as well as walking or crawling around in the attic.
We are inspecting and operating all supply pipes and drains, looking for leaks or anything done incorrectly. We also inspect the water heater.
We are checking the service wires, breaker boxes, outlets, switches, lights, and wiring that is accessible throughout the inside and outside of the home.
We operate and inspect all major appliances that go with the home, including the stove, oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and microwave.
With all of the flooding in the area over the past few years, grading is very important and on all of our minds. We make sure that all of the ground around the house slopes away from the house and will drain properly.
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning can be such a large expense to repair or replace. We will check these systems to make sure they are working properly and not at the end of their life expectancy.
This inspection includes termites, carpenter bees, carpenter ants, and some beetles. It is commonly referred to as a “termite inspection.”
All of our inspectors are CPI, Certified Pool and Spa Inspectors. We check the pool and spa equipment and surfaces of the pool and spa, to ensure everything is safe and up to current code.
Because the system is usually set to run early in the morning, there might be broken heads and/or pipes, the homeowner is unaware of. We run through all of the zones and check the system thoroughly.
We inspect all septic systems, including conventional, aerobic, and anaerobic systems. We will make sure the septic system is working properly and that it does not need to be pumped.
We inspect all types of water wells. We check the equipment to make sure it is working properly, and we also take a sample of the water to have it tested for bacteria, lead, arsenic, and other items.
