Pre Purchase (Buyers) Home Inspection

Purchasing a home is a major decision and having all the information is essential.  A pre-purchase inspection affords the buyer the opportunity to make an educated and informed decision on the purchase of their new home.  On average, a home inspection takes between two to three hours and your attendance as a client is encouraged. It allows Building Insights the opportunity to identify any major concerns with the home, explain how your potential new home operates, how to take care of it, and what repairs that you can anticipate down the road.  A home inspection becomes the first investment you make in the larger investment that is your home.

This old abandoned boiler was in the basement of a home where the children had been carving their names into the asbestos parging and unknowingly breathing in the hazardous fibers.

This deteriorated brick chimney will be an expensive repair and could only be observed by climbing the roof.

This plastic vent is discharging the moist air from the bathroom into the attic space where it can form condensation and cause damage. All fans are required to vent to the exterior. There is also some dangerous wiring evident at the bottom of the picture.

The electrical installation in this two year old pool house looks like a neat professional installation at first glance. However a closer look reveals that there is no ground fault protection for the lights and outlets near the pool. This is considered a shock hazard and a high priority repair.

This home was getting free natural gas for the BBQ. The quick connect fitting is located on the wrong side of the gas meter. I don't think the Gas company would have been too pleased.
