At Accurate Home Inspections we utilize state of the art inspection equipment and also everyday tools to aid in our inspections such as:
Thermal Imaging cameras detect temperature differential. Different colors correspond to different temperatures, so an inspector is able to identify areas that are abnormally hot or cold.
This wonderful extension ladder will fit in the trunk of our car! It extends to 26 feet.
Carbon dioxide detectors Combustible gas detectors
Our aim is to reduce some of this stress and uncertainty by providing you with an accurate, unbiased inspection of the home or property you are about to list on the market or want to buy. Our professional home inspectors will ‘inspect the unexpected’ by performing a thorough visual inspection of all components of the property or home. We will identify for you components of the house that are not performing well as well as systems that may require maintenance to improve their operability.
We promise to add significantly to your knowledge of the home, but cannot tell you everything about the house. All home inspections are entirely visual and therefore no destructive testing will be performed. The inspection and report will put you in a much better position to make an informed decision.
