Certified Home Inspection Services
- Outbuildings (for an additional fee)
Re-Inspections can be ordered as a follow-up to the General Home Inspection for a small fee. After the repairs and upgrades that you listed in your CRL have been completed, we can come walk through the home once more to ensure that all changes are up to recommended standards and that the home is move-in ready.
Our Pre-Listing Inspection is a great way for home sellers to help their properties appear the most appealing to potential buyers. We will inspect the home for areas that need repair or upgrade before it is listed. After making these changes, the seller can be confident that their home is ready to be sold.
Traditional Septic System Inspection
We provide Traditional Septic System Inspections performed to the standards set forth by the Mississippi Department of Health’s Wastewater Treatment division. If you need a letter for a traditional septic tank and field lines system to close your real estate transaction, we can provide that service. Mississippi’s Wastewater Treatment division has undergone significant staff cuts in recent years, so getting a septic system approval letter from the Health Department could take weeks, time you may not have before your real estate transaction needs to close. We are licensed through the Department of Health to perform these inspections, and can provide you with a septic letter in a timely manner.
Specialized Tools and Equipment Used
We don’t try to dazzle you with gizmos and gadgets. You’re not paying us to play with our toys. We believe that a home inspector’s greatest tool is his or her eyes and the ability to read a house. That doesn’t mean we don’t use tools to assist us in assessing the condition of the home. We employ moisture meters to determine moisture content and damage in suspicious areas, and we use a HVAC laser thermometer to determine the working condition of the HVAC system and the home’s electrical components. We use an amp clamp to see if there are any grounding issues with the home, a voltage meter to determine the available voltage in the home’s electrical system, and we use an outlet tester to check every accessible outlet. We use a pressure and flow meter to determine precise pounds per square inch and gallons per minute of flow in the plumbing system.
But more than that, we use our experience and knowledge to look at the house in much the same way a detective solves a case. Many times, seemingly isolated symptoms are actually all part of the same problem. Only someone with a well-trained eye and an understanding of the home’s structure is able to connect these dots. Our licensing as home builders through both the state of Mississippi and Alabama, our home inspector licensing, and the continuous education credits we have to take to maintain those licensures, gives us an advantage in training and experience over other home inspectors in the area. Let us put that experience and knowledge to work for you.
