Inspection Types & Services Offered
This inspection is the most common inspection and is conducted once a contract has been placed during the option period. This inspection is designed and intended to aid in determining if any issues exist within the house.
This is an outstanding tool in helping you as a buyer make an informed decision on your new home.
This inspection is for those of you that are thinking of selling or are getting ready to sell your house. Prior to listing the house you hire Grand Slam Home Inspection to come in and discover any possible hidden issues that might exist and offer possible corrective solutions to them. This could potentially increase the property’s value while reducing surprises later down the road.
This is an inspection for newly built homes. This inspection is done just before the home is one year old. During this inspection we are looking for defects that might be covered under the home's one-year warranty offered by most builders.
These inspections are for new construction homes and are split into three phases. Phase 1 (Pre-pour), Phase 2 (Pre-drywall), Phase 3 (Final). In phase 1, we look at the foundation elements such as plumbing, rebar tension cables and more before the concrete is placed. In phase 2, we inspect the structure systems such as electrical, plumbing and structural members before the drywall is placed. And phase 3 is the final inspection when the house is completed before the final walk. These inspections are very beneficial to find hidden issues before they are covered up by concrete or drywall and to avoid potential problems down the road.
Termite (WDI) Inspection
Wood Destroying Insects (WDI) Inspections, also called a Termite Inspection include Termites, Carpenter ants, and beetles. Over time they can do extensive and expensive damage to homes and other structures. This service can be done at the same time as your home inspection. A WDI inspection can help identify the presence of these insects as well as conditions that are conducive to them. A WDI Inspection is a visual survey of the home and it’s immediate surroundings for the presence of wood destroying insects or conditions favorable to their presence. These inspections are done by our inspectors in house in conjunction with our sister company Grand Slam Pest Control LLC. TPCL 0894723
