Your Families Safety is our Greatest Concern


Every home inspection includes a Recall Check of the permanently installed appliances. This includes the: water heater, furnace, air conditioner, evaporator coils, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and possibly more. As long as the model number is legible and the appliance is less than 40 years old, it will be checked for recalls. Most recalls are issued because of fire hazards and other safety related issues. The manufacturers will almost always pay for these repairs. Talk about peace of mind!

You Are Covered With MoldSafe

We offer way more than just an inspection! You never know what you will find during a home inspection, so we come prepared to test for any indication of mold. If mold is found in your home, that was not present at the time of inspection, you are covered for remediation up to $2000.

5 Year Roof Protection Plan

If we inspect your home , and find no evidence of a roof leak, regardless of the condition, the 5 Year Platinum Roof Warranty will protect you. If your roof leaks, you are covered. This includes all residential roof types, including asphalt/composition shingles, slate roofs, metal roofs, tile roofs, and non-commercial flat roof types.
