Pre-Listing Home Inspection
A homeowner schedules a pre-listing home inspection before their home is listed for sale in the real estate market. The benefit of a pre-listing inspection is it allows the seller to understand the current condition of their home, and it also gives the seller the opportunity to fix, repair, or address any issues with the home before putting it on the market. Our inspectors will conduct a pre-listing inspection in the same way as if working for a buyer. During the inspection, our inspectors will identify items that need to be repaired or replaced, construction defects, installation defects, and safety issues. Our goal during a pre-listing home inspection is to help homeowners to know the condition of their home, and to allow them to be able to negotiate with confidence and to expedite the sale of their home.
New Construction Final Inspection
A new construction final inspection is conducted on a brand-new home. This type of inspection is conducted when the construction of the home is finished and before the builder’s final walk-through. Our inspectors act as a buyer advocate and will conduct a thorough, unbiased inspection of all the major components of a home. During the inspection, our inspectors will identify items that need to be repaired or replaced, construction defects, installation defects, and safety issues. Our goal during a new construction final inspection is to help educate our clients about construction issues that should be addressed by the builder before closing.
New Construction Pre Drywall Inspection
A Pre-Dry Wall Inspection is conducted on a new construction home when the rough-in of the building components has been completed. Including framing, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and shingles are installed on the roof, and the exterior doors and windows are installed. This inspection takes place before the insulation and drywall are installed. During this inspection, our inspector will act as a buyer’s advocate and will evaluate the installed building component at this stage in the construction process. If defects are observed during this inspection the buyer of the home can have the builder fix or repair items before moving on to the final phase of construction.
Builder’s Warranty Home Inspection
A builder’s warranty home inspection is a full home inspection that is conducted prior to the expiration of a Builders’s 12-Month Warranty. This type of inspection is usually scheduled in the 10th or 11th month after the purchase of a new construction home. Our inspectors act as a homeowner advocate and will conduct a thorough, unbiased inspection of all the major components of a home. During the inspection, our inspectors will identify items that need to be repaired or replaced, construction defects, installation defects, and safety issues. Our goal during a builder’s warranty inspection is to help our clients identify problems and/or construction issues, so our clients can get the best use of their builder’s warranty and have the builder address and/or repair these items before the warranty expires.
A secondary inspection of certain areas of the home can be performed once the seller or other representative has notified you that requested repairs and improvements have been completed. We’ll then return to the property to take another look at these components, ensuring that the repairs were successful and that no additional work is needed.
Continuous Radon Testing
On Point Property Inspections uses state-of-the-art continuous electronic monitoring devices that provide hourly data reporting, giving you accurate and reliable information about the radon gas levels in your home. All our radon tests are conducted by an NRPP certified radon measurement professional. The information received from the radon test will allow buyers and sellers to make informed decisions in the home buying process. The EPA’s guidelines recommend all homes in a real estate transaction to be tested for radon gas, and all other homes to be tested every 5 years.
Termite and Other Wood Destroying Insect Inspections
On Point Property Inspections partners with a Quality Pro Certified pest control company to provide you with comprehensive and detailed pest inspections. Termites and other wood-destroying insects can silently impair or destroy structural and other areas of a home. It is essential to identify these issues before purchasing or selling a home. We schedule trusted technicians to perform pest inspections at the same time as your home inspection to eliminate time-consuming appointments with different companies. Your detailed pest inspection report will include drawings of the areas surveyed, along with an action plan if pests are detected.
Mold Inspections and Mold Testing
During a mold inspection, our inspector will conduct a visual assessment of problem areas of your home and create a report identifying visible mold and wood-destroying fungus and provide digital photos for our clients. The inspector will also identify conducive conditions for mold and fungal growth, test the indoor relative humidity, test for water damage or water penetration with a moisture meter and visually inspect the HVAC system. We can provide sample identification in specific areas through bio-tape and swab mold testing. Additionally, we provide indoor air sampling, which will determine the amount of mold contamination in the air as well as determine the different types of mold present in a home. All sampling and testing will be annualized by an accredited mold laboratory for species identification.
