Residential Home Inspections

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

New Construction Pre-Pour Inspections

A foundation inspection involves checking trenches, footers, metal components, pipes, and sleeves to ensure that everything is properly placed and connected. We typically visit the site before the foundation is poured, then return afterwards to ensure that the work has been done correctly.

Pre-Dryall Inspections

During a pre-drywall installation inspection, we look for issues such as warped or missing framing, exterior electrical and lighting fixtures, wood quality and placement, exterior walls, windows, and sealants, framing fasteners and connectors, and HVAC rough-ins and duct conditions. Identifying these issues before the drywall goes up can prevent costly repairs down the line.

Sewer Scope Inspections

A sewer scope is an inspection of the lateral sewer lines from the house at or close to the foundation to the city sewer, HOA tap, and/or the septic tank. Sewer scoping can help homeowners and homebuyers identify potential problems with their sewer systems. Save yourself thousands of dollars by getting a sewer scope before buying a house!

Pool & Spa Inspections

Our inspection process includes a thorough visual examination of the equipment and components of the system. We also measure the depth of the water, check the pH level, and test the water temperature. We provide you with a comprehensive report including photos and recommendations for repair or replacement if necessary.

Wood Destroying Insect Inspections

Termites can go unnoticed until they cause catastrophic damage to your home. Whether you’re shopping for a home and suspect a termite issue, or you think your current home may be affected by termites, we can provide you with comprehensive testing, and help you understand your options for termite remediation if we do discover an infestation.

While Dexter’s Dedicated Home Inspections encourages our clients to walk through the home with us, we understand that you may be too busy, and may not have time to do so.

Regardless of whether or not you attend the inspection, we will compile a comprehensive Spectora report, which includes all of the information you need to determine the condition of the home.

We will deliver our report within 24 hours of the conclusion of your home inspection, so that you can quickly access a full overview of our findings – and discuss them with us and your agent.
