NPI professionals are trained to perform an unbiased, visual home inspection. The inspectors assess the home from roof to foundation to identify safety issues and describe the current conditions on the property. Your inspector will walk you step-by-step through significant findings. Following the inspection, you will receive an easy-to-read, thorough report for your records. This can assist you in purchase negotiations, warranty repairs or when making future maintenance decisions.
We encourage you to allow time to attend at least the final portion of the inspection. This allows us to walk through the home with you, pointing out findings and explaining elements of the report. Following is a short description of some of our inspection services:
- Homebuyer’s inspections
Sometimes referred to as a "general home inspection," these are booked prior to closing on either brand new or existing housing. The inspection covers hundreds of components in the home and includes a written report clearly outlining safety concerns and the current condition of the home. The report gives buyers the information they need to make the best decision and prepare for future maintenance.
- Homeseller’s pre-listing inspections
A general home inspection completed prior to listing or selling the home to give current owners an idea of maintenance items to address. A pre-listing inspection also helps inspire confidence in prospective buyers regarding the condition of the home and reduce time spent in contract negotiation because an unbiased, independent inspector has reviewed all major systems.
- New construction draw inspections
Construction draw inspections are conducted for property owners or construction lenders during the construction process to determine the percentage of completion at various stages of the construction process. NPI’s construction draw inspections allow for the appropriate amount of funding to be released to the contractor at specific points in time over the life of the construction project. Timing and reports for these inspections are customized to fit the needs of the client.
- New home construction inspections
NPI inspects new homes for home buyers or builders upon the completion of construction. This protects the home buyer by identifying any deficiencies which can be corrected prior to taking possession of the new home.
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that comes from the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. It is also the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Both the U.S. Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend that radon levels in all homes be tested. Setting up a radon test in your home takes just a few minutes. Testing takes about 48 hours. Clients receive a final report indicating levels of radon in the home.
- New home builder’s warranty inspections
Most brand-new home builders provide homeowners with a 12-month Builder’s Warranty. Ordering an inspection before the warranty expires gives the homeowner a professionally-prepared report to go over with the builder addressing possible issues. If repairs are not needed, it provides peace of mind regarding the quality of the new home.
- Infrared surveys
