North Lake Tahoe and Truckee home inspection services:
Standard Home Inspection: We will inspect your roof, siding, foundation, driveway, grading, electrical system, plumbing, heating, ventilation, furnace, windows, doors, interiors, and more. You will receive a detailed and descriptive report that will explain any deficiencies in the house. Photographs will point out exactly where these issues are, and if these are a safety issue. At the end of the inspection, you will have the chance to meet with the inspector on-site, and/or contact the home inspector afterwards to discuss any part of the report. See InterNACHI’s Standards of Practice for more information.
Pre-Listing Inspection: Inform yourself about all the issues in your home before putting it on market. This inspection gives you the same detailed and thorough report of the Standard Home Inspection to let you decide what to repair so there are no surprised when your home goes into escrow. We will put you in touch with honest and proficient contractors to take care of any plumbing, electrical, structural, HVAC, or finish work that needs to be done to give you the confidence needed to close the deal.
Commercial Inspection: As a certified home inspector and licensed Civil Engineer, I will be able to inspect all aspects of commercial properties up to 100,000 square feet. There is no need for a separate structural inspection, since your inspector will include the structural inspection with the commercial inspection report. After reviewing all plumbing systems, electrical systems, structure, retaining walls, attic, crawlspaces, finishes, and more, we will meet for a walk-through to discuss all issues found. See InterNACHI’s Standards of Practice for Commercial Properties for more information on what is included. I am also available to review plans, discuss remodel options, and more. For an additional cost, I provide ADA inspections to ensure the commercial property complies with current ADA codes.
Pre-Rental House Inspection: Before putting your house on VRBO, Airbnb, or one of the local rental agencies, have your home inspected to make sure there are no plumbing leaks, electrical hazards, or possible structural issues that could lead to future problems with renters. We will inspect all areas included in the Standard House Inspection, and make recommendations on inefficient appliances and heaters to replace that will save you money in the long run.
Remodel Inspection: Have you home thoroughly inspected by a licensed Professional Civil Engineer and professional home inspector before starting a remodel to have marginal or deficient items included in the price of your remodel to save money. We inspect all areas included in the Standard House Inspection, and will meet with you after the inspection to review the inspection and discuss the structural elements of your remodel. As a licensed Engineer, we have many years experience in remodels and additions.
Draw Inspection: If you are building a home and obtain a construction loan, your bank will hire a Draw Inspector to verify that you have completed the areas of construction that you have stated, in order to make another draw on your loan. I provide this service to banks and third party companies who work with banks.
