Residential Inspections

What's Inspected During A Home Inspection

When you schedule your home inspection with All Points Inspection Service, you are hiring a Professional Building Consultant/Inspector. We are experienced professionals who have training and experience in the building industry. It is our job to not only evaluate the condition of the house’s major systems and structural integrity, but also to evaluate how these systems are working together and identify areas that need to be watched, repaired or replaced.

WE ARE A HOME CONSULTING COMPANY THAT WORKS FOR YOU!

Our Consulting/Home Inspection service provides a visual inspection of the structural elements and mechanical systems which are accessible. The inspector will view the property with you explaining everything in detail, so you understand it, including the visual limitations that may exist. The extensive training our inspectors recieve along with their experience give our inspectors insight about houses similar to yours, so they really know what to look for and can readily compare your house and its systems with other houses of similar age and condition. All homes have strong and weak points, and they are not always what they seem. The reporting systems that we have incorporated into our company allow you to gain the perspective and sound information you need to make better decisions.

Your home consultant will give you the “Big Picture” analysis of the house. If the building consultant identifies the need for a more detailed analysis of any of the home’s systems or structural components, the inspector will recommend the appropriate professional, which may be an experienced engineer or a qualified licensed contractor or specialty tradesman with expertise analyzing that particular system or structural component.

We not only service buyers but also complete:

Pre-listing inspections

For sellers, a pre-listing inspection can save you a lot of avoidable trouble and stress, and maximize your profit. If you know there are items to fix, you can either repair or disclose them while preparing to list your home. Being forthright demonstrates that you are not hiding anything. Even better, being ahead of the curve with fixes before listing will present potential buyers with the best visual of their dream home. All home inspection services we provide are available for sellers, as they are for buyers.
