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 performed both our pre-drywall inspection and final inspection for our new build. He was super easy to work with and extremely responsive. His detailed, digital reports were also very helpful and were easy to share with everyone involved in our process. He filled out forms in a timely manner, showed up to all inspections without issues, and even followed up to make sure inspection items were addressed. Highly recommend!
