The theory is sound: engineers make a living out of attention to detail. Therefore, who better to perform home inspections – especially those trained in residential construction. At Team, we offer a combination of engineers and licensed home inspectors to provide these services.
Most of our home inspection clients are home buyers. However, many of our clients are also home owners who are preparing to put their house on the market or have issues with their home and want an engineer’s inspection for repair.
We approach every inspection as if we are purchasing the home for ourselves or for a family member. We understand this purchase is probably the largest investment you will make so we want you to learn as much as possible about your new home. Our goal is to educate you on the condition of the entire house from the roof surfacing to the foundation and all major systems in between. While most of our referrals come from realtors, we understand that we are working for the buyer. The realtors that refer us understand and agree with this philosophy.
We provide our clients with a ten-year maintenance plan that is customized to the home. This portion of our report includes our suggested maintenance, repair, and replacement schedule over one year, five years and 10 years, as well as yearly maintenance.
As engineers, we can comment on any structural concerns that we find in the home. Our team can also provide additional testing services for the septic system, chimney, radon in the air, water quality, and more.
