RESIDENTIAL HOME INSPECTION

Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any concerns that could become costly surprises down the road.

The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the home. It provides you an expert opinion and professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a home. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision.

In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes 3 or more hours to complete. This will vary according according to the size and condition of the home.We encourage you to join us at the end of the inspection to review the findings. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.

We will inspect all the structural elements and systems of the home. Items that will typically be included in an inspection are:

 

  • Structure
  • Roof and attic
  • Foundation
  • Walls
  • Electrical system
  • Plumbing system
  • Heating and air conditioning systems
  • Kitchen
  • Bathrooms
  • Site Conditions
  • Pool and Spa

*Additional items and systems unique to a particular home can also be inspected.*

When the inspection is complete, we will review and discuss any concerns that were discovered. We will also discuss any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You will receive a full report of the inspection. Our goal is to inform you of anything we find that might affect your purchase decision.

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION

Buying a new home has a unique set of criteria to consider. It is wise to hire a trusted professional to ensure you are getting the quality you deserve. At VBI, we are specialists in new construction inspections. We provide a higher level of scrutiny, going beyond your typical home inspection, to ensure your home meets the Minimum Workmanship Standards set forth by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.

Building a new home is a tremendously complex endeavor. It involves many people and subcontractors. It is always a challenge for the builder to provide the proper quality control. Common findings on new home inspections include; damaged roof tiles, low insulation in attics, bowed walls, mis-wired outlets, and air conditioning concerns.

We offer the opportunity to review the home during and after construction. This can include up to 4 site visits; a) Pre-Slab, b) Pre-Drywall, C) Final, d) One-Year Warranty. These inspections include blue-taping defects to ensure proper identification.

For the relatively small cost, a professional inspection of your new dream home can pay big dividends in peace of mind and get any problems identified and corrected before they can become an unpleasant surprise.

1-YEAR WARRANTY INSPECTION

Often new home buyers don’t realize the importance of having the home inspected during the construction process. Our 1-year warranty inspection affords you the opportunity to protect your interests during the important warranty period. This inspection goes beyond the normal home inspection. Our inspectors take it to the next level by utilizing Arizona Registrar of Contractors Workmanship Standards along with the builder warranty standards. We apply this scrutiny to our 1-year inspections with the customer benefiting by getting a list of the specific items the builder must address and legally documenting any chronic issues. The 1-year warranty is also where we will often blue-tape any cosmetic items such as drywall, paint, caulking, grout, stucco…etc to assist our customers. No other inspection company we are aware of provides this service.

TERMITE INSPECTION

Termites and other wood destroying insects are very common in this area of Arizona and their presence is important to document. We are fully licensed to perform termite inspections and produce a separate termite report. It takes an expert to detect hidden termite damage. General home inspections do not typically include a termite inspection. It is highly recommended that you get a termite inspection in addition to your general home inspection. If you suspect your home may have termites or if you would just like the peace of mind a professional inspection can offer, please contact us.  Our office performs thorough inspections for termites and other wood destroying organisms.

At the end of the inspection, we provide you with a detailed report including color photos and descriptions of our findings, to ensure you have the utmost understanding of the home or property. We value our time with you and encourage you to attend the inspection to ensure that the process is understood. Additionally, we commit to be available for telephone consultation for as long as you live in the home.
