Commercial Inspections

If you’re considering purchasing an office building, retail space, or warehouse, hire me to inspect your commercial property. I will report on the condition of major systems that will affect your bottom line: electrical, heating and cooling, roofing, plumbing, and the structure itself. Please contact me for more information on our Commercial Inspections!

Inspection Reports

I use industry-leading HomeGauge Software to generate comprehensive digital inspection reports. Your report includes high-resolution images, videos, and detailed notes, and can be accessed online using your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer.

Included in your report is an interactive tool called Repair Request List. This tool allows you, the buyer, or the seller to indicate how any issues discovered should be handled moving forward. From within the report, you create a list that can be shared with all involved, or you can use it as a list for future projects you wish to handle yourself. Repair Request List eases communications for all involved and has proven to be invaluable to the negotiation process.

Free Energy Conservation Audit

Reduce Energy, Help the Environment and Save Money with our FREE conservation energy audit.

When you schedule your home inspection, simply let us know that you are requesting the FREE Energy Conservation Audit with your inspection (a $400 value). This will allow our inspector to plan for the additional time needed to complete the energy audit at the planned home inspection.*

As part of your home inspection the inspector will provide an Energy Conservation energy efficiency inspection that will be included in your home inspection report, as well as an  on-site consultation.

Energy bills can be one of your largest homeowner expenses. Even the simplest and easiest of energy upgrades can help reduce energy costs and save money. Up to 50% on heating and cooling bills, Up to 33% on overall energy bills.

In addition, there are over a dozen rebate and financial incentive programs to help subsidize energy upgrades – most are available at the time of sale or purchase of a home. Visit your utility companies (electric, gas and water) for rebate options.

There are many ways to save money by being more energy efficient. However, one of the most visible ways of saving money is by using more energy-efficient appliances and products. These translate to an immediate reduction in your utility bills and pay for themselves over a period of time.

When buying products for the home, buy Energy Star labeled products. The ENERGY STAR label is awarded to products that use less energy to do the same work as conventional, non-qualifying products, without reducing the quality. Less energy means lower utility bills, and less stress on the environment.
