The Inspection Process

Residential Inspections: Our property inspections take from 2 to 3 hours to complete for the average 2000 sq. ft. home or business. We encourage your presence during the inspection. The experienced inspector will familiarize you with the home and provide answers for your questions. It is scheduled immediately following acceptance of your offer and conducted in accordance with the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors Standards of Practice by a degreed engineer. You will receive a detailed general inspection report within 24 hours of inspection completion.

Resident Engineer/Construction Inspections: We are a certified MBE/FBE, DBE, and EDGE service company who can help you reach your required Office of Equal Opportunity goals on public contracts. Inspection visits may occur all-day, once per day, or periodically throughout the construction process. Detailed reports are completed on the specified form for each day on-site. You can design your own service to include a range of services from strictly documenting daily activities and monitoring contract requirements, to schedule management and contractor coordination. The service contract is based strictly on your needs and priced accordingly.
