Please contact us for specific assembly inspections and your commercial property needs.
Home buyers inspection
Buyers inspections are the most common type of inspection in the United States. The persons purchasing the property hire an inspector to help identify major defects and other problems so they can make an informed decision about the building’s condition and the expense of related repairs.
Home sellers inspection
A homeowner who is selling their house hires an inspector to identify problems with their house.
Foreclosure inspections are often referred to as REO (real estate owned) inspections. Professional home inspectors are qualified to do these. We hold professional licensing in the state of Minnesota and Wisconsin
Four point inspection
Insurance companies sometimes require an inspection of a house’s roof and the HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems before providing homeowners insurance. This inspection is usually only required on homes which are 20-25 years old or older.
A disaster inspection occurs after a natural disaster such as a floods, hail damage, or tornados in which a large numbers of buildings may have been damaged. In the United States the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) prepares for and coordinates large scale disaster relief efforts, including the inspection of damaged buildings. Disaster inspectors document conditions of buildings for government disaster relief payments.
Section 8 building inspections
In the United States the federal and state governments provide housing subsidies to low income people through a program often known as Section 8. The government expects that the housing will be “fit for habitation” so a Section 8 inspection identifies compliance with HUD’s Housing Quality Standards (HQS).
