Full Inspection Report

Our Master Inspector will perform a visual noninvasive inspection of readily accessible systems and components of the property in compliance with the Washington State Standards of Practice, as well as the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and provide a written report with photos. Report processing times can vary depending on the size and condition of the home. Each report has specific curated comments that apply to the home purchase and often has direction for repairs when applicable. The inspector can often give an accurate turnover time at the end of the field visit based on the condition. Areas of standard inspection include: roof, exterior, basement, foundation, crawlspaces, structure, heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical, fireplace, attic, insulation, ventilation, doors, windows, interior spaces, fire and safety hazards. Limited interior inspections do not include a review of the exterior. This is usually due to an interior-only condominium condition or a townhome where a homeowners association is responsible for the exterior.

Deck Inspection

If you have a deck in your home, you might wonder why and what our inspector is looking for when they come to check it. A deck inspection is a way to make sure your deck is safe and meets the current codes. A deck inspector will look at the following things: - The foundation of the deck, including the footings, posts, beams, and joists. They will check if they are properly sized, spaced, and anchored to the ground and the house. - The ledger board that connects the deck to the house. They will check if it is securely attached with bolts or screws, and if it has flashing to prevent water damage and rot. - The decking boards that form the surface of the deck. They will check if they are in good condition, free of cracks, splits, or decay, and if they are fastened with nails or screws that are not loose or rusty. - The railings and stairs that provide access and safety to the deck. They will check if they are sturdy, stable, and high enough to prevent falls. They will also check if they have balusters or spindles that are spaced no more than 4 inches apart to prevent children from getting through. A deck inspection can help you identify any problems or hazards with your deck and give you recommendations on how to fix them. A deck inspection can also help you avoid fines or lawsuits if your deck does not comply with the local codes or regulations. A deck inspection can also increase the value and appeal of your home if you plan to sell it in the future.


Pre-Drywall Cover Inspection

Building a new home or doing a remodel, has the project been “approved to cover” the wall and ceiling cavities; consider a pre-drywall cover inspection for your home or investment? It's a smart move that can save you a lot of trouble and money later. A pre-drywall cover inspection is when a qualified residential inspector reviews the structure and mechanical systems in wall before the drywall is installed. We review the anchoring and earthquake hardware for proper installation (regional requirement), framing, plumbing, electrical, and in wall ducting and line for your HVAC system, making sure work had been done right and according to code and standards. Allowing us to note and report any deficiencies and notify the contractor so any issues can corrected before the drywall covers in wall construction items. To ensure fire blocking, nailing, proper framing connections were made, proper stair stringer connections (commonly not made correctly even though the city may had signed them off), electric connections, studs are full length and not over notched at seal/bottom plates, in wall plumbing and routing, nail plates are installed etc… Also, we can make recommendations for backing behind areas where handrails, towel bars, heavy picture, closet shelving systems and televisions may be hung or installed. So, fasteners have a solid backing that can hold weight without pulling from drywall. We can take pictures of the wall cavities and document where the studs, pipes, and wires are for future refrence. And you can have peace of mind knowing that your home is safe and well-built. So don't skip this important step when building your new home. It's worth it!
