New Home Inspection

New home inspections play an important role when final steps towards closing are at hand. This inspection is as important as an inspection of an existing older property. You will be provided a report of possible structural deficiencies and safety concerns. You’re also going to want to be made aware of the less noticeable, but equally important and potentially costly deficiencies often encountered with newly built homes.

After an occupancy permit has been issued for your home, and the electrical power, water supply, gas supply (if applicable), and other additional equipment have been turned on, it is advisable you request a new home inspection. You will want to have the inspection completed prior to closing, so any defects can be brought to the builder’s attention. This allows the builder opportunity to address and remedy the defects before the property is transferred over to you. Your new home is an important investment, protect your investment and contact Timber and Stone Home Inspection to schedule your inspection today.

Pre-purchase Inspection

A pre-purchase inspection should be performed by a licensed inspector to weigh your decision on the purchase of an existing home. Home purchase contracts will often contain a provision for a home inspection and certain stipulations concerning the condition of various home systems and components. Protect your investment by arming yourself with the knowledge you will obtain with a thorough pre-purchase home inspection offered by Timber and Stone Home Inspection.

4-Point Inspection

Many insurance companies require a 4-Point Inspection for homeowner’s insurance and renewals for an existing policy on an older home. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition.

Septic System Inspection

A functional flow evaluation of the septic system will be checked during the inspection. If applicable to the specific septic system, a visual examination of the transfer tanks will be performed. Any issues during the functional flow evaluation and or during the visual examination I can and will advise you on some further steps to take to remedy the problem.

Private Well Inspection

Private wells that are constructed properly are usually safe, but problems can occur that can introduce contaminants into the water supply. I’ll check your private well for basic structural issues and take a sample to test it for lead, microbial pollutants, and dangerous chemicals upon the customer’s request.

HVAC Video Inspection Scope

An HVAC scope is a video inspection of the HVAC supply and return ducts through the system and up to the plenum of the air-handler. HVAC-scoping the ductwork can reveal blockages, cracks, damage to the duct system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and home buyers to be aware of. For example, if there is a sand or debris in the floor registers or on the flooring around the registers, an HVAC scope inspection can be critical to identifying and confirming these problems, which should be addressed immediately.

Sewer Video Inspection Scope

A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A lateral sewer line is a privately-owned pipeline connecting the property to the publicly-owned main sewer line, HOA tap, or septic tank. Sewer-scoping the line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and home buyers to be aware of. For example, if there is a damp depression in the lawn above the sewer line, or if there is backflow into the home, or if contaminants have been discovered in the potable water supply, a sewer scope inspection can be critical to identifying and confirming these problems, which must be addressed immediately.
