Independent. Transparent. Thorough. Whole Home Inspections.

Whole Home Inspections

We’re here to serve you.

We  are not interested in doing just your home inspection. We want to educate you so you can make informed, intelligent decisions while purchasing your new home. Buying a new home is an exciting and emotional time, and can be very stressful. There are numerous processes and deadlines to consider, and being concerned about the condition of your prospective home is where we specialize in bringing you peace of mind. One phone call to schedule your inspection is all it takes. We notify all the parties involved in scheduling the inspection, make all the necessary appointments, coordinate third party services, and make sure that at least part of the process is easy.

Types of Whole Home Inspections

There are several reasons to consider getting a whole home inspection. The most common is Pre-Purchase Inspections. Yet, there are other tools that you should consider to make sure your home is properly serviced and maintained. This ensures that you continue to build value and wealth in what is likely the single largest purchase of your life. Improving resell value and shortening time to sell are but two reasons to have your home inspected. Thinking of selling soon – a Pre-Listing Inspection will ensure an easy transaction. If you want to learn more about the different types of whole home inspections, you have come to the right place.

Pre-Purchase Inspections

More Info

Our highly trained and professional inspectors at Pro-Tech Inspections are able to identify deficiencies which are present in the home, can recognize prior repairs which have been made, and in many cases can see the potential for future problems that may exist.

Pre-Listing Inspections

More Info

Having a pre-sales inspection performed will insure the potential buyers that you are concerned about their interest in the transaction and will give them more confidence to complete the purchase. Often times ensuring a quicker and more profitable sale. 

11th Month Warranty Inspection

More Info

You may have already experienced some difficulty in getting warranty repairs completed. If so, let us document a final checklist for you before the end of your twelve (12) month warranty. Ensuring a means for you to  get the repairs done – even if stretched beyond the twelfth month.

Annual Maintenance Inspection

More Info

Many homeowners have an annual maintenance inspection done to be proactive. This process allows the homeowner to anticipate repairs before they go unchecked and become more costly. 

The purpose of the whole home inspection of your home is to look for the following 5 items:

Health and Safety Issues

Structural Problems

Items or Systems in Need of Repair

Water Penetration and Its Affects

Insect Damage

 

 

 

 

Our Process

In addition, our goal is to educate the buyer on the care and maintenance of the home. A whole home inspection includes a thorough examination of the major components that combine to form the structural support and working systems in a home. We follow, but are not necessarily limited to the ASHI standards of practice, as adopted by the South Carolina Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR) Residential Builders Commission. In fact, our proprietary inspection process and reporting format generally exceeds the standards in most cases.

Our process ensures what we call a balanced inspection. Ensuring a holistic view of the home and and how each component co-exist to the benefit of the home as a whole.

Our inspections include the following accessible components:

  • Roof, Vents, Flashings, and Trim

  • Gutters and Downspouts

  • Skylights and Chimneys (when accessible)

  • Decks, Porches, Walkways, and Railings

  • Eaves, Soffits, and Fascia

  • Grading and Drainage

  • Basement and Foundation (including accessible crawlspaces)

  • Water Penetration
