Think of a home maintenance inspection as a checkup visit to the doctor or dentist that only needs to happen every 3 to 5 years or so.

What is a Home Maintenance Inspection?

-And why it's important to have one.

A maintenance inspection will help to prioritize a home improvement list, find out about small problems before they turn into big ones, and decide how to best spend your home maintenance dollars.

A maintenance home inspection gives you a chance to have a professional home inspector answer questions with a completely unbiased viewpoint. The home inspector isn’t there to sell anything. We’re here to give you unbiased, accurate information. Home maintenance can help you to spend less on repairs and keep your house in safe operating condition. Having a consultant will help to know what is first on your list and what can wait. 

What's Covered and Inspected During a Home Maintenance Inspection?

Our inspection report covers all the major systems and structural elements of the house. This includes the condition of the home’s heat and air conditioning systems, plumbing and electrical systems, roof, foundation, attic and visible insulation, walls, doors, windows, and all visible structures. For more on how we do a home inspection, click here.


For example, does the house have a solid foundation? Do all the light switches work? Are there soft spots on the roof indicating water damage? Do any of the windows or doors have wood rot? Are the structure and framing solid, or are some areas ‘improvised’ with unstable supports?

OUR thorough home inspection will answer all these questions and more.

A Home Inspection is an Objective Visual Examination of a House’s Physical & Mechanical Structures & Systems.
