Your Home, Your Family, Your Trust
Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. It is a complex and stressful task. In fact, buying a home is often the biggest single investment you will make in your lifetime. Before you sign on the dotted line, be sure your investment is a good one. A professional home inspection can provide you with the assurance you need to move forward in your real estate transaction.
We provide a thorough, comprehensive examination of the home you are looking to buy. We conduct a non-invasive examination of the readily accessible systems of a home, including:
- Exterior and Site
- Structural Components
- Electrical Systems
- Central Air Conditioning
- Insulation and Ventilation
- Plumbing Systems
- Built in Kitchen Appliances
Having an inspection completed in advance of a home sale allows the seller to identify and address any issues that could prevent or delay the sale of the home. It helps the seller avoid being caught off guard by problems that may arise during a buyer’s inspection, and affords him the opportunity to save time and money by completing necessary repairs in advance of selling.
How a Pre Listing Inspection helps you…
A pre-listing inspection report brings more buyers to the table, creating a better negotiating environment for both sellers and buyers. With the home’s condition disclosed at the beginning rather than the end of the process, things move more quickly and smoothly. It is a win-win situation, with less liability for all.
New Construction Inspection
In a new home, the quality of construction can vary from job site to job site. Whether you are buying a new home in a subdivision from a large recognized builder, or custom home built by a small independent contractor, things can get overlooked and missed in the building process.
Homes are constructed by many different subcontractors and their employees. Each of them working on a different system of the home, with little or no regard to the other systems of the home. With all these separate activities occurring at the same time, it is nearly impossible for the builder to carefully check all phases of construction. Even the best builders can miss something in the process.
It is true, that homes do get inspected dozens of times by municipal building inspectors as part of the permit process. However, the job of the municipal building inspector is to check for compliance with applicable building codes, and not quality of craftsmanship. Even though most municipal building inspectors are doing their best, factors beyond their control prevent these inspections from being enough.
When construction is nearly complete on your new home, it may be a good idea to bring in a third-party inspector to provide an unbiased opinion of the property. We’ll arrive prior to the builder’s final walkthrough to look for signs of defective materials, unsafe construction, or anything that was simply missed by the builders up to the point of the inspection.
11 Month Warranty Inspection
11 Month Warranty Inspections serve to report any conditions or material defects that may have arisen within the first year of owning a newly constructed home. Many builders and contractors offer a 1 year warranty for their work. By getting an 11 Month Warranty Inspection you can discover any problems that may be covered under your builders warranty.

Roger is the best home inspector I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Roger has inspected two homes for me. Each time the report has been very thorough, ensuring I knew exactly the strengths and weakness of each property. The reports are highly detailed, enough so, that I was able to project renovation costs within a few hundred dollars. Finally, Roger is the first home inspector I have ever used that willingly takes the time to discuss the report and answer any and all questions and furthermore encourages homebuyer engagement, before, during, and after the report has been written. I highly recommend Roger for all your home inspection needs.
“Hiring Roger to do my house inspection was an absolute stroke of luck! He is thorough and unafraid of getting a dirty to make sure the job is done right. He was professional and friendly and actually wanted me at the inspection so he could explain what he was looking at and why and took the time to answer all of my questions even though it probably doubled the time it took to get the job done. I ended up going back and hiring him to inspect a second property because I trusted him to tell me the truth and make sure I had all the information I needed to make the right decision on whether or not to purchase it. I will definitely be going back to him when I need another inspection and will be recommending him to everyone I know.”
As a lender, it is very important to have a great Home Inspector inspecting the homes your buyers are purchasing. You want someone who is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the home inspection, is very detailed, and can communicate directly with the buyers in a language they will understand. I have 100% confidence when my clients are getting their home inspected by Roger Hall that they not only receive a great home inspection but they will have a better understanding about the home they are purchasing.
I have used six different home inspectors in the past. From now on I will stick with Roger Hall. He was very thorough doing an in-depth and detailed inspection. He then took the time to review and explain the results fully answering any questions or concerns I had. Thanks Roger.
It is a pleasure meeting you. I appreciate your ability to get my buyers’ inspections scheduled in a timely manner. I am very impressed with the thoroughness of your inspections and how personable you are with clients. I look forward to working with you a lot more.
