Inspection Types

Having an inspection always provides an advantage. For the buyer, having a home inspection means you'll be aware of problems before the purchase, not after you move in.

If you are selling your home, having it inspected means you know you are complying with full disclosure laws. If your home needs work you can have it done before the sale or have some idea of the cost to repair rather then having the perspective buyer reduce their offer.

If you have recently purchased a new home from a builder and the "warranty" is about to expire, a home inspection by a professional can let you know whether the builder/contractor did the job correctly.

At Tri-County Home Inspection we offer a wide-range of inspections, including:

Existing Home Inspection

The best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have a professional home inspection. Home inspectors are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.

Let us spot the problems (new and old), before you commit to such a major investment and decision. A trained professional, I have seen it all and will provide invaluable help in turning you into a knowledgeable consumer. Homeowners can identify problems in the making and take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs. Sellers can understand conditions the buyer's inspector may point out and put the property in better selling condition by making repairs.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it's always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation. Some important reasons for having a pre-listing inspection, include:

Warranty Inspection

The majority of new homes sold today come with a builder's warranty. A comprehensive inspection prior to the warranty expiring can provide information that will enable to homeowner to provide documented evidence that repairs may be warranted. A "before the warranty runs out" inspection is conducted using the standards of practice used to inspect any home prior to purchase. You will be provided an inspection report listing in detail the items that "need repair." The details, if necessary, will be supported by digital pictures so demonstrating to the builder exactly what is incorrect will be simple. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.

New Home Inspection

Because the quality of new construction is often not what it used to be some years ago, many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you've dreamed about.

Phase Inspection

More and more folks are building new homes both in the country and the city. Usually, there are no building inspectors that service rural areas and often building inspectors in the city are overworked and stretched thin. Tri-County Home Inspection offers a great service called "Phase Inspections". We visit the building site during and when key phases of the project are completed. For example, wouldn't it be comforting to have a second pair of eyes look at the rough plumbing before the slab is poured? I visit the home site multiple times during various phases of construction.

Phase inspections can discover key concerns before its too late. Some common items include:


We are frequently asked by our clients, "How do I know if it's fixed?" We offer an inspection to make sure the defects have been corrected. We have a minimum charge for the service. Call for a quote.

Doesn't it make sense to schedule an inspection today?
