An Annual Home Maintenance Inspection is a proactive approach to understanding the condition of the home. It is based on the visible and apparent condition of the home and its components. The inspection covers the major systems to include, heating and cooling, as well as structural elements, exterior components, and drainage around the perimeter of the house. Decks, if present, are also inspected.
Home inspections are designed to disclose deficiencies in the property that could materially affect its safety, livability or function, it will also provide home maintenance recommendations. The inspection is not meant to disclose cosmetic defects.
The home’s exterior systems and components play a critical role in the longevity and serviceability of the home. From the foundation to the highest apex of the roof, the home’s building envelope encompasses all aspects of the structure.
Since the exterior of the home is exposed to daily weather conditions, moisture becomes the primary contributor to material deterioration, fungal growth, and pest intrusion. By inspecting the home’s exterior along with the interior systems and components, you will understand the home’s condition, the ability to prioritize the maintenance/repair items, and even minimize Homeowner Association (HOA) violations.
This inspection is coordinated on an annual basis or no later than 18-24 months since your last home inspection.
It is recommended that you attend the inspection. This will provide an opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the home’s condition including maintenance recommendations. While our inspection reports include concise explanations and images, seeing defects in person adds more clarity.
Within 24-48 hours of the inspection being completed, you will be furnished with a report describing what was inspected and the condition of those components.
Scott from Biller & Associates completed my home inspection and far exceeded any expectations I initially had in this part of the process of my home purchase. He went above and beyond throughout the entire inspection. He walked me through absolutely everything and answered all my questions completely with patience and understanding from a buyer’s perspective. He discussed issues, made solid recommendations throughout the inspection, and immediately provided his very thorough inspection report reflecting everything we discussed. His report was laid out very clearly, with pictures reflecting the items he inspected, clearly noted with severity of any issue.
Scott Biller was referred to me by my neighbor after other sources had not been helpful for us. My wife started suffering from ongoing health issues that ranged from skin issues, trouble breathing, joint pain, fatigue and other problems. She saw a physician that diagnosed her as being exposed to Mold, although our home had no clear indication of mold. We previously had roofers, plumbers and other specialists inspect to see if there were potential leaks/water damage where we could identify any areas of concern and none of them found anything. At recommendation of our neighbor, we called Scott for an inspection and within 30 minutes he identified a pipe leak in the wall and significant mold in the wall beside my wife’s office. It appeared the leak had been there for possibly 1-2 years. Scott Biller showed up, quickly found the issue when No one else could, and now we are able to fix the leak and remediate the mold. He was professional, proficient, logical and straight forward. Thanks to Scott, my wife can start her healing process and we can get back to normal. We will use his Mold investigation services after we have remediated the mold to make sure that it is all gone. Thank you and God Bless you Scott!
