Maintenance Inspections: Protect Your Investment
A Maintenance Inspection is an investment, not an expense. A maintenance inspection by Jim provides valuable information about the condition of your home or building. We can help you identify current problems and make suggestions for repairs and preventative measures for potential problems. Maintaining the good condition of your home ensures you of a safe and comfortable residence for many years. It's the best way to protect your investment.
Problems that occur in a home are typically only addressed after something breaks or after damage to its structure and systems has become so severe that you are forced to make repairs. Most homeowners give very little consideration to the fact that, if found early on, home-related problems can be addressed or repaired before those problems become so large that the expense of fixing them cause a financial strain.
But how do you know something is wrong with your home to begin with? Just as a 60,000-mile inspection and tune-up can help you to identify and prevent problems with your automobile, the only way you will be able to identify and prevent existing or potential problems with your home is to inspect it, as well.
Based on various facts such as weathering and local weather patterns, normal wear and tear, production construction, materials and mechanical systems, we recommend that you schedule a home inspected every two years during the lifetime of residency in your home. I'll provide you with a detailed report about the damage or potential concerns we find to the systems and structure in your home.

WHAT WE INSPECT, AND WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT
A Home Maintenance Inspection is a visual examination of your home's systems, mechanicals and structure. We examine everything from roof to the foundation to assure that the items inspected are in proper working order. Any defects or damage we discover [within the scope of our inspection policy], will be noted in our thorough Home Maintenance Report. (Our report will review the condition of the home's heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure. Keep in mind that a Home Maintenance Inspection does not prevent further damage to your property, but it can help you to identify and correct existing damage that you may not know about.
You need to know the condition of your home. There is no pass or fail score. There is simply knowledge, and knowledge is power. Most homeowners are pleasantly surprised that a home inspection discovers the kind of damage that can often be repaired for only a few dollars before such damage grows worse.
