Have you recently contracted to sell a newly constructed home? Well maybe you didn't know that once a year has gone by, the warranty will expire - not allowing your client to have structural defects or construction issues repaired at the builder’s expense.
YOUR HOME PROPERTY CONSULTANTS provide a top to bottom home inspection that gives the homeowner a thorough review off all current or potential structural or safety issues. Have your client schedule a home inspection before the warranty expires to ensure their home is up to code
The purpose of structural inspection is to visually find evidence of abnormal settlement, lateral movement or structural weakness in
the accessible load bearing components of the building. The footings, foundation, floor members, bearing walls comprise the structural components of a home, as well as, an asphalt parking surface. Proper drainage, wood destroying organisms & ventilation play a major role. Access to crawl spaces & attics are required for a thorough structural evaluation.
The purpose of electrical system inspection is to visually assess the condition of components of the hardwired systems located within the confines of the structure. Our licensed home inspectors will determine that the system is adequate for present demand & examine switches, receptacles, light fixtures, exhaust fans, distribution panels, breakers, wiring junction boxes, conduits & devices.
