Do You Need A Certified Home Inspector?

Residential Home Inspections

A residential inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, photographs, environmental reports and what the residential inspector has to say during the inspection. All this combined with the seller’s disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming.

What should you do? Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancy and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories: Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4). Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection.

Residential Home Inspections

Home Buyers Inspection

Getting a home inspection gives you the opportunity to learn more about your potential new home. You're about to invest a HUGE amount money and you need to know it's a safe place for your family to live in. You can renegotiate if defects are found or opt-out of the deal altogether. Our experienced inspectors find more defects during an inspection because they inspect the house as if they're buying it themselves.

Home Sellers Inspection

Eventually your buyers are going to conduct their own home inspection. You should know what they are going to find first. Having a pre-listing home inspection performed ahead of time helps in many ways. It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical and neutral third party. It alerts you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home. It may uncover items of immediate concern, such as mold, radon gas or active termite infestation or other pests, giving you the opportunity to make any repairs ahead of time and remove all obstacles from the sale.

Homeowners Inspection

Keep your investment in tip-top shape! A Homeowner Inspection allows you to allocate your annual home maintenance budget better, while protecting your family’s home for years to come. Our experienced inspectors will do a thorough investigation so you can have total peace of mind.
New Construction Building Inspections
Do You Need An Independent New Home Inspector?

New Construction Building Inspections

​In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be some years ago, therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.

​Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.

Do You Need A Certified Risk Assessor?

Lead Risk Assessments

Lead is a well known toxin that can show up in many sources in new and old homes, buildings and industrial facilities. Lead can have a variety of negative impacts on the body, and is particularly harmful to children with developing brains and nervous systems (it has been linked to lower IQ’s and other development issues).

Lead testing is routinely done during real estate transactions, as part of the due diligence process. Lead-safe work practices also are advised before renovation or demolition of any facility built before 1978, and are required for homes and child-occupied facilities such as day care facilities and schools. 

A Lead Risk Assessment from Galloway Building Services consists of an on-site investigation to determine the presence, type, severity, and location of lead-based paint hazards (including lead hazards in paint, dust, and soil) and provides suggested ways to control them.
