BUILDING INSPECTION (HOME & COMMERCIAL)
This service is designed to help you sell your home. Stand out from the hundreds of thousands of other houses for sale by having Blue Ridge Home Inspection Pre-Inspect your home. Not only will this set your home apart, but a pre-inspection will uncover any hidden surprises that could affect the deal.
If the purchaser has a home inspection and finds problems, you must act in their timeframe, not yours. You may have to make repairs you otherwise would not want to make, resulting in more headaches and money than if you'd known about the problem and had it repaired before negotiations began.
With a Blue Ridge Home Inspection pre-inspection, you will get a full report with pictures to show to prospective buyers. Blue Ridge Home Inspection also offers use of our "This Home has been Pre-Inspected" sign to further set your home apart.
A buyer's home inspection is the most common. It is easy to avoid minor bumps in the road when buying a home by getting your new home inspected before you close. There are small and sometimes large defects in all homes, you need to know what they are. Only a trained professional knows what to look for such as: Structural elements, Foundation, Framing, Plumbing systems, Roofing, Electrical systems, Heating and Cooling systems, etc.
New Construction Inspection
A new construction inspection is as critical as an inspection on a 50 or 100 year old house. A good reputable builder isn't always a good place of trust for your new construction home. They rely on their sub-contractors who then rely on their employees. The fact is: everyone is human and things fall through the cracks, but it is your choice to hire a 3rd party inspector to ensure your new home is in good condition.
New Construction Walk-Through Inspection
This inspection is similar to the second phase of the New Construction Inspection. The second phase is conducted after the city/county has issued a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) permit.
This inspection looks at all systems and finishes to ensure that all have been correctly installed. It also ensures that all are completed in a workmanship manner. This part is very different from an inspection on an older home including: paint, floor coverings, cabinets, and general fit and finish of all the components of the home. It is much easier to get deficiencies corrected before you close on the home.
End of Year Warranty Inspection
Blue Ridge Home Inspection gives your house a thorough, top-to-bottom inspection before your end-of-the-year warranty runs out. This inspection focuses on those areas covered by the warranty and where major repairs or alteration cost might occur. Our written report will prove invaluable when you sit down with your builder to report and negotiate the repair(s) of unsatisfactory conditions.
This service is to confirm that agreed upon repairs have been made, and been made correctly. We will return and inspect an item on the summary report that the seller and you have decided the seller will repair prior to closing. When buying a home that is not covered under a buyer's warranty, your walk-through is usually your last chance to ensure that everything in your house is as it should be. This service is available for a nominal fee. Ask for details on this valuable service.
