Happy Homes Inspection Services
General Home Inspection
This inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the areas of your home that are visible and safely accessible. The scope of work may be modified by the client and inspector prior to the inspection process, but Happy Homes Inspection Company follows the InterNACHI Standards of Practice, which includes but is not limited to an inspection of the following:
- Heating and Cooling Systems
- Foundation Framing
- Built-In Appliances
Weekend appointments and after hour appointments available.
This inspection is a good way to stay ahead of the game if you plan on selling your home. It allows you to catch anything that would likely be found later during a buyer’s inspection and to address the issues first. A Pre-Listing Inspection is also a good way to develop trust with potential buyers.
11-Month Builder Warranty Inspections
Most homes need to be lived in a while before you really know if everything is working the way it should. That’s why new home builders almost always offer a one-year warranty that covers certain work and material defects. This inspection looks for these issues so that your builder has time to fix them before the warranty runs out.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can cause serious health problems for you or members of your family if not detected. If you are selling a home, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends radon testing before you put it on the market. If you are buying a home, the EPA recommends that you ask the seller for a radon inspection and ask about radon-reducing systems prior to purchase.
Included free with every home inspection, a thermal scan with an infrared camera helps locate problems in a home that cannot be detected by the naked eye, such as water leaks or overheating electrical wires. Thermal imaging allows you to catch these potential problems early before they become bigger and more expensive problems.
New Construction Residential
These are conducted immediately prior to your final walk-through with your builder. If there are any defects with the construction of a new home, it is best to discover them before the house has been moved into or lived in. A residential inspection helps you make sure any problem areas are addressed before you move in.
Home Maintenance Inspections
Whether or not you’re thinking about selling your home, a yearly Home Maintenance Inspection helps you detect problems early so you can make immediate repairs before further damage occurs and identify items to fix in the future. Being proactive could result in saving hundreds, if not thousands of dollars!
Mold in buildings is common and is also a potential health risk for everyone in your household. It’s important to identify sources of moisture that could cause mold growth, and my inspections include testing questionable areas with a
Wood Destroying Organisms
All of my inspections look for evidence of Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO). These issues can go undetected for years and compromise the structural integrity of a building, so it is important to be aware of past or present invasions of WDO’s, like termites, carpenter ants, and wood-boring beetles.
For all inspections, customers will quickly receive a detailed report that is easy to view on any computer or mobile device. Your report includes digital, expanding photos as well as video and is presented in language that is easy to understand. A unique online Create Request List (CRL) tool allows you to create a list of any pertinent issues in order to determine whether defects call for repair, replacement, monetary compensation, or whether they should be left as is. All involved parties can participate in creating the CRL, which can also be used to build your own home improvement lists.
