About Your Home Inspection: Buying a home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, this is why it is crucial to have a good understanding of the condition of the property you are considering investing in to make an informed home buying decision. A pre-home inspection is a non-invasive examination of the home’s structure, systems and its components. We utilize the most advanced tools and techniques in the industry such as an infrared camera to help detect various issues in the home which may not normally be detected through a visual inspection. Following your home inspection you will receive a comprehensive report complete with photos and information on material defects we observed on the date of the inspection. EcoHome Inspectors is committed to providing you with a professional and unbiased opinion of the physical condition of the property so that you can make your decision with confidence. All of Our Home Inspections Include… • Roof, vents, flashing and trim • Gutters and downspouts • Skylight, stoops, porches, walkways and railings • Eaves, soffit and fascia • Grading and drainage • Basement, foundation and crawlspace • Heating system and Cooling system • Main water shut-off valves • Water heating system • Interior plumbing fixtures and faucets • Electrical service line and meter box • Main disconnect and service amperage • Electrical panels, breakers and fuses • Grounding, bonding, GFCIs and AFCIs • Fireplace damper door and hearth • Insulation and Ventilation • Garage doors, safety sensors and openers …will also inspect anything needed which isn’t provided on this list! Thermal Imaging: Thermal Images show surface heat variations, allowing us to quickly and accurately identify defects that may not always appear through a visual inspection. Abnormally hot electrical components and connections can be viewed during an electrical inspection. Areas of moisture that may lead to leaks and structural damage can be located based on apparent temperature differences. Heat loss and air leakage in the building envelope, and even areas of insufficient insulations, can also be pinpointed quickly and accurately. This makes thermal imaging one of the most important methods of home inspections.
