Home Inspections

Some people call this a “structural” – which is old fashioned and inaccurate terminology.  A structural inspection is only one component of the full inspection we perform and provide. Our residential inspection services are performed in strict accordance with the N.J.A.C 13:40-15 (New Jersey Administrative Code)

When making a large purchase, your first priority should be a thorough inspection. We view a house or building as a system with components and items interacting, interfacing, and affecting each other. The inspection and report covers all visible and readily accessible structural, mechanical, and other building systems and components. An in-depth inspection of the average single family home takes 2.5 to 4 hours, larger houses take longer. We don’t rush off to the next inspection, it takes what it takes. We cover hundreds of points at every inspection. Accept nothing less.

We use sophisticated state-of-the-art instrumentation, and testing equipment where applicable. Our wealth of experience provides you with one of the best field inspections possible. Insist on nothing less.

We encourage you to accompany the inspector to get a first hand view and explanation of existing conditions. The operation and maintenance of the systems of the building and components are explained. This will increase your comfort level and eliminates you sole dependence on the written report. Questions are answered during this time (and throughout the home buying transaction). Our service does not end with the delivery of the report. We are available for free consultation after you move in.

The written report is 22-28 pages with an executive summary, styled in layman’s terms and provides you with a depth of information and explanation for an understanding of the condition of the house.

o  Description of systems and components

o  Items and systems not inspected and why
