Buyers Inspection:

Pre-Purchase Home Inspections

The buyer’s inspection is the consumers’ best defense against making a bad purchase decision. The prospective home buyer will receive an objective report on the condition of the home from the perspective of an impartial professional who searches out issues throughout the many systems of the home.

Our inspection reports are very thorough and detailed in such a way that it will inform the buyer on the condition of the property and with this information any buyer can estimate the cost of repairs and decide if the property is worth pursuing or negotiating. The report will also give the buyer peace of mind by knowing the condition of the property being purchased.

Radon Inspections with Instant Results 

At GH Home Inspections, we specialize in understanding Radon Gas and perform tests for the detection of this carcinogen as defined by the EPA so that the homeowner/buyer can be informed of its presence in the home environment.

Sellers Inspection

Pre-Listing Home Inspections

The seller’s inspection is a pre-listing home inspection tool for the proactive seller to increase the marketing power of the property. Knowing issues before marketing the home offers an opportunity to repair or improve the property and increase its attractiveness to potential buyers. With help from GH Home Inspections, the seller will discover any issues that may harm their chances of closing a deal with a future buyer.

New Construction/
 Warranty Home Inspection

A new home will be inspected by a municipality for following “code standards”. However, the building code is the bare minimum. There are issues that can happen during construction that can be hidden during the building process.

At GH Home Inspections, not only will we help you find the defects of the construction, but it is also an opportunity for the homeowner to learn more about their new property as they take possession of their new property.

Maintenance Inspection:

Periodic Home Evaluations

The maintenance inspection is a periodic checkup on the condition of the home. If a home is inspected and sold, and the property doesn’t change hands for an extended period of time, such as ten years, a minor nuisance that was reported in the inspection from a decade earlier can easily become a major structural issue in the present day.

At GH Home Inspections, we contractually monitor your home to alert the customer of issues while they are in their infancy and can still be economically corrected.
