During a Re-Inspection, we will return to a property we have already inspected to make sure that the repairs made since our last visit are safe and complete. It is important to make sure that all agreements between buyer, seller, and realtor have been honored, and our professional inspectors are here to help!
Inspections may benefit sellers as well as buyers. During a Pre-Listing Inspection, we inspect the home the same manner that we’d inspect it for a buyer, potentially discovering issues that sellers may want to address and repair before listing the home.
New Construction Inspection
All of our inspectors are New Residential Structure (NRS) certified in Virginia and can complete New Construction Inspections. We inspect the newly-built home before the final walkthrough in order to find defects in construction that have been overlooked so that these can be addressed.
New Construction Phase Inspections
New Construction Phase Inspections help builders make sure that each significant phase of their project is defect-free and safe before they move on to the next one. We will inspect the home at the framing, pre-drywall, and pre-walkthrough phases.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
New homes that were sold with a one-year Builder’s Warranty should be inspected during the 11th month. We will thoroughly inspect the home for any defects that may be covered under the warranty so that owners can request their repairs within the allotted time frame.
Commercial Property Inspection
It is important to have commercial properties inspected for any damages or safety concerns before purchasing. We offer Commercial Property Inspections for apartment complexes, strip malls, office buildings, warehouses, duplexes, and more. There are many important items not inspected or looked at in residential inspections that are very important to address in Commercial Inspections. It is critical that you have a qualified Commercial Inspector like Precision Inspectors working with you.
Additional inspection Services
Mold Inspection and Sampling
Mold growth in the home can be a safety concern because it can affect respiratory health. We use a Moisture Meter to measure moisture levels in the home and find areas where mold growth is likely. Once we find suspected mold, we take a sample with either tape or a swab. If the sample is determined to be mold positive, remediation advice will be offered.
Lead paint within the home can be a major safety hazard. If you suspect lead in the home, we will take paint chip samples of suspected areas by scratching all the way down to a wall’s raw surface. We then take the sample for professional testing.
It is important to have the water in your home tested before use or consumption to avoid ingesting any harmful contaminants. We will test tap water, city water, and well water.
Mold spores and other allergens in the air can also cause issues with respiratory health, aggravating conditions such as allergies and asthma. We can sample the air for harmful allergens and keep you and your family healthy and comfortable.
We can test the home to see if there are any issues with toxic methamphetamine residue. Chemical spills related to the production of methamphetamine can have long-term negative effects on surfaces and air within in a home if not properly addressed.
We use a Thermal Imaging camera to find areas of heat loss, excess, and moisture that we wouldn’t be able to see with the naked eye. Areas of heat discrepancy can help us determine whether there are any electrical or moisture-related issues.
Aerial Drone Photography
In situations where we cannot access a roof safely on foot, we may use an aerial drone to collect high-quality images of the roof from above. We can then use the photos to find and address any issues.
