Maryland Home Inspections Services

Types of Inspections:

Buyer’s Inspection

After a buyer has made an offer on a home and before closing the sale, this inspection is performed. The buyer is then able to make changes to their offer depending on whether issues arise. This allows the buyer to take one last look at the quality of the property before naming their final price.

New Construction Inspection

When a home is in the middle of being constructed, this type of inspection occurs. It is done once so the inspector can examine the framing and installation of the systems and components. A second inspection is then performed to examine everything else after the home is completed. This helps to pinpoint issues early on in the construction process so they are more easily and quickly resolved.

Re-Inspections

Sometimes, mistakes can be made during both the construction of a home and repairs made to a home’s components and systems. To make sure that any repairs made by the seller are completed well and up to code, a re-inspection is necessary. It can give the buyer better peace of mind and understanding of the quality of home they are purchasing.

Pre-Listing / Seller’s Inspection

Sellers need to have a detailed understanding of the overall condition of the properties they are putting on the market. This type of inspection provides the sellers with upfront information regarding the state and shape of their home and allows them to negotiate a fairer price for their property.

Home Maintenance Inspection

For the circumstances of missed repairs or seemingly small problems in your home that are in actuality very serious, a home maintenance inspection is greatly advised. This can happen routinely after someone has lived in a home for a while, and gives homeowners the ability to nip issues in the bud that could be hazardous or expensive in the future.

Other Types of Inspection Services:

Mold Testing

The inspector will test the air or surface to find out which kind of mold it is and whether it can grow in the tested area. Past or current mold growth can be tested for. A mold test can indicate a water problem, such as a leak. Mold has the potential to cause sensitization or allergic reactions among residents.

Pest Inspection

This type of inspection checks the exterior and interior of a home for any signs of infestation, damage, or attractive areas to pests. It can also help identify issues in materials or home construction and enables the inspector to foresee potential pest issues.

Move-In Certified for Pre-Listing / Seller’s Inspection

This can inform the seller of any defects or problems so they can be addressed before prospective buyers discover them. The seller is then able to confirm to the buyer that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement and no safety hazards. This shows people interested in buying your home that you are being honest and up-front and can prevent delays.

Tools and Technology

360 Degree Camera

This gives you a view of the insides of machines and systems that you would not otherwise see. This is ideal for monitoring and maintenance.

Moisture Meter

This measures the moisture content of various building materials, such as roofing, siding, insulation, drywall, plaster, wood, tile, and fiberglass. It can help detect moisture that cannot otherwise be seen.

Thermal Imaging

Infrared thermal imaging cameras will spot changes in temperature in different areas of the home, helping to identify potentially problematic areas that the naked eye can’t see.

GFCI Tester

GFCI Testers are designed to detect common wiring problems in standard and GFCI receptacles. The tester can help determine the wiring condition in outlet.
