We provide residential inspection services all over Northern California (if there are more than 4 homes on one parcel).
All our inspections are thorough, in depth visual examinations of the structure and operating components of the property, in a manner that exceeds the Standards of Practice of the ASTM E2018 - Standard Guide for Property Condition Assessments: Baseline Property Condition Assessment Process.

You and/or your representatives are encouraged to attend the last hour of the inspection. During this time the inspector will review with you any challenges that he has found with the home, as well as point out the positive aspects. This is your opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. We have found that this method to be the most effective use of your time, however, you may attend the entire 2-3 hour inspection if you desire.
Within 24 hours, we will have the written report ready and will deliver it to you and to your Realtors via email. The reports are designed to be very informative, and yet easy to read. Click here to view a Sample Residential Report.
