NHI offers the most comprehensive home inspection available.
Whether buying or selling a property, an inspection provides peace of mind as you make purchasing decisions. Northern Home Inspectors offers a full menu of services to residential clients.
Home buyers pre-closing inspections.
Sometimes referred to as a "general home inspection", these are booked prior to closing on either brand new or on 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.
Home sellers pre-listing inspections.
A general home inspection completed prior to listing or sellling a home to give current owners an idea of maintenance items to address. A pre-listing inspection also helps inspire confidence in perspective buyers regarding the condition of the home and reduce time spent in contract negotiation because an unbiased, independent inspector has reviewed all major systems.
Employee relocation home inspections.
Time is generally of the essence when a familly is re-located for business purposes. Prior to beginning negotiations for purchase of a home, relocation companies generally order a home inspection to determine the need for repair and maintenance before agreeing to assume the home.
We start at the roof and evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney, the ventilation system, the electrical service entrance, the plumbing stack, and any other systems or components located on the roof that are safely accessible at the time of the inspection.
Our next step is to inspect the exterior of the home. We use a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and all the details.
We then move inside the house, and starting at the bottom, work our way up through the home into the attic. While inside, we address such things as the structure, the heating and cooling systems, the electrical and plumbing systems, the interior finishes, the insulation and ventilation, and accessories.
Our evaluation is then communicated through a detailed inspection report, which includes descriptions of all the systems in the home, as well as any recommended improvements. This will help you prioritize the improvements and develop a blueprint for your future in the home.
Best of all, our services don't end with the inspection. For as long as you own the home, you can call with any additional questions - at no extra charge!
