I perform new home purchase inspections, phase construction inspections, 11 month warranty inspections, manufactured home inspections, barndominiums, condominiums, multi family houses, and I do commercial inspections. Whether you are a first time home buyer, or an experienced home buyer, a flipper, or an investor, I am able to assist you with your inspection needs. My coverage area is basically any county that borders Wise County. I can make exceptions and go a little farther out if necessary. During an inspection, all of the components of a home are inspected as long as they are safely accessible and are in service. The home is inspected in its current condition at that time. I can't be responsible for what happens to a home after the inspection has been performed. There are times in older homes where the attic access openings and crawl space openings are not large enough to allow safe access in these areas. There may be low clearance under a home that prevents access to the components under the home. A home inspector will never put themselves in harms way to perform an inspection. Steep roof pitches and weather conditions can prevent access to the roof. Inspectors are not allowed to open closed valves or turn on breakers that are turned off. If a home is occupied and has personal belongings in it, the inspector is not allowed to move items during the inspection. Due to liability concerns, If I break it, I have to buy it. The inspector is not allowed to make any modifications to the home. The home is inspected in the current conditions at that time. If a utility is turned off, I notify the listing agent about it and then the buyer. If the seller can get the utility turned back on, I will continue the inspection. If the utility can't get turned back on that day, I can return back to the home at a later time and I charge the seller a return trip inspection fee. At the buyers discretion, I will typically go ahead and inspect as much of the home as possible since I am there anyway. Some lenders require water quality testing if the home is supplied with a water well. I can take care of getting the water tested. I also do septic system inspections. I do not run cameras or recording devices down the drain lines. If this service is required, an experienced and professional plumber with the proper equipment can provide this service. I am not a licensed pest control person, however, during an inspection, I will be looking for indicators and evidence of wood destroying insect damage. If I see evidence of wood destroying insects, I will make you aware of it and a licensed pest control professional can come out to further assess the issue. If your lender does require a third party WDI inspection, I can usually arrange for that service to be performed while I am inspecting the home. This is based upon their schedule.
