We will check structural components such as framing, trusses, and joists for any structural safety concerns.
Grounds & Drainage
Our inspection will check for appropriate grading and drainage to carry water away from the house, identify plant growth which may damage the home's structure, and report potential root damage to cement or walkways.
In addition to inspecting the stone, siding, or stucco, we will report any issues with the gutters or exterior trim. We will also check utility meters and shutoffs for easy access.
