A Home Inspection You Can Trust In

A home is the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. Let Attic & Under Home Inspection provide the thorough inspection you expect and a report you can rely on to make a confident decision.

As a Certified Professional Inspector trained by InterNACHI – the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors – I have the knowledge to spot problems with materials, installation, and workmanship. I also have over 20 years of experience in the construction industry. My background allows me to see and notice many things that others may not.

I follow a comprehensive Standards of Practice, which ensures that you will receive a detailed and accurate home inspection. I also abide by a strict Code of Ethics, which puts your interests first and protects your rights as a consumer.

I understand first hand how stressful a real estate transaction can be. So, whether you’re buying or building a new home, selling the one you’re in, or purchasing an investment property, let Attic & Under Home Inspections give you the peace of mind you deserve to make the right choice for your family’s future.

My Standard Home Inspection

I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the attic to the foundation, using the latest tools and technology.
I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.

As a Certified Professional Inpsector trained by InterNACHI, I adhere to comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice.  This means that I will inspect all of the following, when visible and accessible:

  • Roof
  • Fireplace
  • Structural Components
  • Electrical System
  • Attic, Vent, & Insulation
  • Plumbing System
  • Interior Including:
    • Built In Appliances
    • Ceilings, Floors, & Walls
    • Windows/Glazing
    • Doors
  • Porch & Deck
  • Attached Garage
  • Driveway
  • Foundation
  • Basement/Crawlspace

Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report within 24 hours and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.

Move-In Certified Seller Inspection

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home, so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspection

Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home property. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let me help you start on the path of responsible home ownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the
past year.
