The private home inspection will include a visible analysis of readily accessible areas of the following components and systems: exterior, grounds, garages, roofing, heating & cooling, plumbing, electrical systems as well as the structural integrity of the basement, kitchen, bathrooms, interior rooms & attic spaces. The inspection is performed according to the standards of practice of the National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) and is not destructive in nature.
You will receive a CD with photos documenting your new home & information on most of the major components of your home at no additional charge. This is like an electronic reference manual for your property. The computer generated report that you receive at your inspection will often reference these photos for clarification purposes and for use in receiving bids for repairs.

"My husband and I bought a house in May. Our realtor brought in Thomas to handle our pre-purchase inspection. He did a fantastic job! He was so thorough that he even found a cracked handle on the lavatory. The report and pictures-disc that he gave us following the inspection have been wonderful to have and refer to. Recently, in October, we had a new issue with our house. Our realtor again called Thomas out to inspect the extent of damage. He was very helpful - answering all of the questions that I had at the time and, get this, he did not charge us for this call which was much appreciated! Thomas is thorough, helpful, friendly, and trustworthy. I would recommend him to any friends or family that I know looking for an inspector."
