Buyer's Inspection

So you just put an offer on a house - congratulations!! Make sure you arrive at the closing table with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you made the right decision.  An inspection from House to Home is going to give you the tools and info you need to help you get there.  We are knowledgable, professional, realistic and practical.  We are proud to offer prompt service, fast report turn around times, and top-notch customer care. 

Pre-Listing Seller's Inspection

You’re about to put your house on the market, but you know it has probably some issues. A pre-listing Inspection is a great way to help you understand where to focus your time and money so that you get the most out of your sale.  

New Construction Inspection

Are you building a new house? Before you do your final walk-through with your builder, schedule a home inspection with us.  You will be armed with the information you need to approach your builder about fixing any problems before you close on your new house. If you recently moved into a new house, your builder has probably given you a one-year builder's warranty. If so, it’s not too late! Give us a call so we can help you make sure any remaining issues get taken care of before your builder's warranty expires.

Fixer-Upper's Inspection

You just bought a house that’s going to need some work and you want to know what things you should focus on so that your money will be well spent.  The super-smart thing to do is to set up a home inspection with us. Our experience in the remodeling, new construction, and house-flipping business will help you make the right choices on your fixer-upper.  

Investor's Inspection

If you have investment properties (up to 4-family dwellings), we know you're taking a risk.  Renters can be rough.  So often, costly repairs down the road could've been avoided had the problem been detected early. An annual property inspection will help you keep a close eye on your investment so you can jump on any issues before they lead to bigger and more costly problems.  Protect your investment with a professional inspection from us.  

Annual Home Maintenance inspection

Over the years, your home will show signs of wear and tear, things will become outdated, and they won’t be as efficient as before. This is a normal process that homeowners go through. A detailed report that outlines your home’s current condition helps bring focus on the areas that need to be improved and repaired immediately to boost your home’s service life. This report can help you avoid serious damage, and save money on costly repairs. (Src: https://www.handymanconnection.com/rockville/2017/04/17/the-importance-of-annual-home-inspections/)

Special Focus Inspections

Single System Inspection

Sometimes all you need is for a single system to be inspected, like your roof, the electrical or plumbing systems of your house, the HVAC, etc.  Single system inspections generally cost less than a full inspection, but provide a fully detailed, professional report of that single system.

Follow-up Inspection

So you had an inspection and have decided to address a number of issues that came up in the inspection.  We will come out and perform a follow-up inspection of the areas worked on. We will take that information and generate a revised inspection report with all the updates.  This focused inspection generally costs less than a full inspection.  To be considered a follow-up inspection, the original inspection must have been performed by us within the preceding 3 months.

Water Testing Analysis

We also provide a variety of water tests, ranging from $75 to $350   We work with local water testing labs to get fast results.  We will go over the results with you and help you understand exactly what's flowing through your faucets.  Ask us about the many specific tests we offer. Expedited service is also available.  

NAWT Certified Septic System Inspection

If you're buying a house with an on-site wastewater (septic) treatment system, have it professionally inspected.  Our inspector is certified through the National Association of Wastewater Technicians (NAWT), an achievement that few inspectors in our area have obtained.  NAWT inspectors adhere to a professional code of ethics found here. Septic systems require regular maintenance and can be costly to repair if poorly maintained.  Order a NAWT certified septic inspection with your home inspection for more savings. NAWT License #14992ITC.
