The decision to sell or purchase a home is an important decision, and how better to proceed than with accurate and reliable information about the property in question.
A Keystone Home Inspection includes an evaluation of all interior and exterior components and systems, including the roof, basement, heating, cooling, ventilation, insulation, plumbing, structure, electrical, and site drainage. All Inspections follow the American Society (ASHI) Standards of Practice.
This type of inspection is conducted prior to listing your house on the market. This provides insight into areas of enhancement or repair that potential buyers might expect or request. It is assumed that if conditions or situations are discovered by the inspector, the buyers’ inspector will also call attention to the same area. This will give the seller time and opportunity to make the corrections or find a contractor of their choice to perform the work. This inspection may save you from last minute negotiations or concessions to the buyer.
This type of inspection provides the buyer peace of mind and some insight as to the condition of the home and what, if any, corrections or repairs may be needed. We want to insure that your home is in favorable operating condition before you move in, and you have some idea of what may be required in the future.
New Construction Inspection
As your new home nears the final stages of construction, an inspection may bring attention to areas that should be corrected prior to moving in. It is easier and more time efficient to address these issues while areas of the home are un-furnished and accessible and you have the attention of the contractor.
A pre-drywall inspection, also referred to as a framing inspection, is an inspection performed on a new home during the construction process prior to the installation of the drywall and exterior wall insulation. This inspection allows the buyer the opportunity to review the "rough-in" phase of construction. It covers the areas of the Electrical, Plumbing, HVAC, and Framing systems that will not be visible after the drywall is installed. Problems found at this phase can reduce unwanted delays in the construction process, and minimize latent defects that may take years to become apparent.
Builder Warranty Inspection
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of the home. Near the end of the warranty we can assist with a final “punch-list” of items to present to the contractor
Insurance companies often require a Four-Point Inspection prior to insuring older properties. This inspection is a review of the Roof, as well as, Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC systems. This is not an in-depth complete home inspection but for insurance purposes and your information only.
Investor Property Inspections
Recommended at least every two years for those who own rental properties or second homes. Costly repairs maybe avoided when you are informed about maintenance and repair issues. It also aids in the budgeting for replacement items.
Mortgage lenders can be better informed about property issues by a professional home inspection. Thousands or more dollars may be lost by roof and plumbing leaks, unsecured entry points and other issues that may be avoided. It also allows for better budgeting when addressing repair issues.
