That’s why we bundle a termite inspection with every premium home inspection.
Did you know your home has important valves and switches that every homeowner – including yourself – NEEDS to know about?
There aren’t many, but knowing where they are and what they do can make the difference between relief and disaster in an emergency.
That’s why every full home inspection includes colorful tags for all your major shutoff valves.
This way you can spot them quickly when it matters.
We’ll even show you where they are so there’s no confusion after you move in.

Did you know a home inspector can be really thorough and still miss plenty of problems?
That’s because it takes a complete understanding of how a home works and how the systems are connected along with the knack to not only find the problems they CAN see but also flush out the ones they CAN’T.
That’s the hallmark of a true master inspector. And they’re few and far between.
So with many important structural and mechanical components hidden above ceilings, behind walls, and beneath floors – not to mention behind clothes, furniture, and storage stuff…
We developed an all-new 3 layered approach to performing a professional home inspection unlike any other.
It consists of our:
These 3 layers combine to give us a 360° perspective of your home so we not only inspect 100% of the items we can see, touch, feel, and (sometimes) smell; we also uncover the hidden issues while using the downward pull of gravity to uncover the full impact each defect has on your home.
No other inspection company does this and you will not find a more comprehensive home inspection approach anywhere else. Guaranteed.
The concept is simple; If we can see it, touch it, and smell it; we will inspect it, test it, and report on it – without exception.
This comes to about 1800-items and includes:
And while most others inspect 400 items. We inspect over 1800 in and around the home.
That’s why we call it a 100% inspection and you won’t find a more comprehensive approach anywhere.
A thorough inspection is great, but if important details are left out, you won’t have what you need to fully understand the issues or properly negotiate with your sellers.
You see, when a home inspector finds a defect, they ask themselves several questions:
1. What happened?
2. What caused it?
3. What will happen if it’s ignored?
4. Any signs of past repairs?
5. Is it a major concern?
6. What do I recommend?
7. Has it affected anything else or damaged any surrounding areas?
They reason through it, jot things down, and move on – but they keep most of it to themselves.
Why would they do that when this information would be helpful to you?
Not to mention it’s information you paid for?
Because they were never really taught what to say or how to say it.
So it never sees the light of day.
But what if you could be a part of that internal dialogue?
That’s what our 7Key™ Comment Method does.
So while most home inspectors write their comments like an afterthought – a mashed up collection of incomplete ideas, technical jargon, and vague recommendations.
Our 7Key™ Comment Method makes you part of the conversation by answering the 7 key questions you need answered to know exactly what is happening.
Then they’re arranged in a specific order and written on a 5th-grade level so it’s easy and intuitive for you (or anyone) to read.
In a nutshell, these 5 key questions:
1. Dig deeper into each defect than any other comment method to fully reveal its cause and extent of damage
2. Answer most important questions so you have all the information you want (and need) when you want it without confusion or wasting precious time tracking down your agent or myself to get the answer.
In truth, there are not many home inspectors who have the experience or insight to organize and funnel information in this way.
And no one else goes to these lengths because it’s not taught by schools and takes too much time and effort to adapt.
But we do because this is how it should be done and what we’d want for ourselves and our family (and yours). Period.
Because THIS is where you the inspection results go.
It’s the only tangible item in the entire process and the only thing you’ll possess when it’s all over.
This will also be your primary weapon for reducing the home price or getting repairs made.
So your home inspection report is really what you’re purchasing.
That’s why we put as much effort into making it user friendly as other companies put into only giving you a thorough inspection:
No confusion for quick and confident decision making.
This process factors two pertinent but everyday truths into our inspection strategy:
1) All building materials are in a slow but constant state of decay
2) Gravity is a relentless downward force
And since these two properties are always at work, we’ve integrated them into our approach to home inspections to help us anticipate, track, and locate the full scope of a defect (important when following the damage caused by heat, cold, foundation movement, roof leaks, and plumbing leaks).
You know the quirks you sometimes find in a home? That’s what we call a mystery glitch.
Well, this technique allows us to track down, isolate, and reveal those random – and sometimes annoying – peculiarities that require a little more finesse to find because they’re hidden from plain sight.
You get the idea. And there are dozens of situations like this.
That’s why it takes lots of experience (and mistakes) to know what could go wrong in order to understand what it takes to coax them out.
The biggest challenge is every home is different, so knowing what to expect beforehand is impossible.
But we bring this expertise to every inspection.
So if your other inspector isn’t aware, doesn’t know this concept, or isn’t deliberately looking for these types of issues, they’ll pass right over his (or her) head and you’ll be stuck dealing with them after you move in.
