Home Inspection Services

Purchasing a new home is a huge undertaking for everyone, and it’s a decision that necessitates careful planning. The majority of our clients are prospective homeowners that realize the importance of getting a certified home inspection completed on the property they’re interested in purchasing.

When you’re in the market for a new home, chances are your decision making is largely related to the appearance of the home, not structural integrity or electrical wiring issues. After all, no one buys a home they think is ugly simply because it is in perfect condition; you buy the home you love to look at, that has the space necessary for your family, the house you’re proud to call your home. But the biggest mistake you could ever make as a home-buyer is falling in love with a home and turning a blind eye to potential issues or problems.

This is why a certified home-inspection is crucial before you sign on the dotted line. Time after time, we’ve inspected homes for people that are completely sold on the cosmetic qualities of a home, to eventually have them walk away from the sale because they didn’t want to spend ten to thirty thousand dollars in immediate repairs.

That’s why InspectRite is here – to look past the glitter and superficial so that every one of our clients is an informed buyer. With more than 40 years of construction experience, you simply cannot afford to buy a home without an InspectRite certified inspection first.

Aerial Drone Inspections

For years, it has been difficult for home inspectors to perform an up-close roof inspection on some homes with steep roofs or roofs made with a material that doesn’t support weight. Often times the inspector would have to observe the roof from the ground in an attempt to spot any visual problems. Obviously, this method doesn’t allow for a 100% complete picture of the roof’s condition.

At InspectRite, we aren’t satisfied with assuming or guessing the condition of a home’s roof – we want the customer to know exactly how things are. That’s why our inspectors also use a piloted drone – fixed with an HD camera – to get high quality photos of the roof, gutters, skylights and chimneys for in depth examination. Our pilots are licensed and certified by the FAA, and have all the proper training to safely and effectively provide a photo map of a home’s condition.

Roof replacement or repair can be one of the costliest renovations to a home – don’t get caught off-guard by major roof problems because the home inspector couldn’t properly assess the condition. From basement to the roof – InspectRite inspectors will let you know every detail and issue with your home.
