Member of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) & InterNACHI State of Illinois Continuing Education Administrator & AHIT Certified & Illinois State Chapter of NACHI - Property inspections, in and around St.Louis and the metro east. RENTAL INSPECTION My RENTER inspection is available only to renters. It is used mainly to document the condition of the property at the time of move-in. Avoiding conflicts at the time of move-out. However, some renters having problems with their landlords also choose a RENTER inspection to document the problems. The RENTER inspection does not meet legal requirements or standards of practice of any home inspector trade associations for what consider a home inspection. Phase Inspections Phase inspections are for some one  having a home built or new construction projects.  It is one of our specialized inspection options and has many different variations as to the size and frequency of the inspection services needed.  We are not building code officials that inspect at certain phases of the construction process.  Phase inspection takes what the building official does and magnifies the scope of items inspected and we put together a photograph report and detailed written report for you to keep for your records. Pre-Listing Inspections Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways: It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party. It helps you to price your home realistically. It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that ... Defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later. There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit. You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified. It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency. It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation. It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions. It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement. It may alert you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home. Copies of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs should be made available to potential buyers. Warranty Inspections Warranty inspections are specifically designed for home owners who have had a home built within the last year. Before your builders period warranty expires. This inspection is just like our standard inspection below.   A Full Inspection Includes: As a NACHI member I must adhere to NACHI's Standards of Practice. This means I will attempt to inspect all of the following (when accessible): Roof, vents, flashings, and trim, Gutters and downspouts, Skylight, chimney and other roof penetrations, Decks, stoops, porches, walkways, and railings, Eaves, soffit and fascia, Grading and drainage, Basement, foundation and crawlspace, Water penetration and foundation movement, Heating systems, Cooling systems, Main water shut off valves, Water heating system, Interior plumbing fixtures and faucets, Drainage sump pumps with accessible floats, Electrical service line and meter box, Main disconnect and service amperage, Electrical panels, breakers and fuses, Grounding and bonding, GFCIs and AFCIs, Fireplace damper door and hearth, Insulation and ventilation, Garage doors, safety sensors, and openers, And much more... Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector's own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
