Inspection professionals conduct a thorough examination of each system, checking for compliance with relevant codes and standards. They assess functionality, safety features, and identify any issues that may require attention or maintenance.

This may include ensuring proper maintenance of the property and compliance with lease terms related to repairs and improvements.

Yearly Maintenance Inspections
Regular inspections to assess the ongoing maintenance needs of a property and identify any issues that might require attention. Scheduled periodic visits are conducted to ensure that the property is well-maintained. Inspection professionals identify maintenance needs, potential wear and tear, and any issues that may arise in the future. Recommendations for preventive maintenance are often provided.

Thermal Imaging Inspections
Use of thermal imaging technology to identify variations in temperature and detect issues such as insulation gaps, water leaks, or electrical problems. Inspection professionals use thermal cameras to conduct non-intrusive inspections, identifying potential problems not visible to the naked eye. This includes scanning for heat anomalies that may indicate insulation issues, moisture intrusion, or electrical problems.

National Standards For The Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE) Inspections
NSPIRE evaluations focus on performance-based inspections, emphasizing the quality of life for residents and the overall condition of the property. Our team evaluates key areas such as health and safety, structural integrity, and environmental factors to provide a comprehensive assessment.

  • Cost-To-Cure AKA Cost-To-Fix – COMING SOON!
    Cost-To-Cure refers to the estimated cost required to repair or rectify a defect, deficiency, or problem in a property to bring it up to standard or to restore it to its intended condition. Our Cost-To-Cure reports provide these estimated repair/remedy costs to the client in an easy to read and understand format.  As a property owner, lessor, lessee, or buyer, understanding the property value based on actual condition and the costs that will be necessary to replace or repair the defective and/or aging components or systems of the property is critical.
  • Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) – COMING SOON!
    A Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) (also known as a Physical Needs Assessment PNA) is a comprehensive evaluation of the capital expenditures required to maintain, repair, or upgrade a property over a specific period, typically the next five to twenty years. It is a crucial tool used by property owners, investors, and managers to plan for future capital expenditures, ensure the property remains in good condition, and preserve its value.
  • Capital Reserve Study – COMING SOON!
    (Also referred to as a Reserve Analysis or Reserve Table) A Capital Reserve Study is a multiple-year plan that forecasts a property’s expected expenses in repairs, replacements, and enhancements by considering the current condition and remaining useful life based on the findings from a Property Condition Assessment. A five-, ten-, or fifteen-year analysis is most common, especially for small businesses. Our Capital Reserve Study offers a visionary evaluation, preparing you for significant capital outlays over time. By examining the lifespan of building components and forecasting future repair or replacement costs, we aid in crafting a tailored reserve fund strategy. This proactive measure helps property owners and managers avoid financial surprises, preserving the property’s long-term health and value.

  • Pool and Spa Inspections
    Safety is the number one goal when inspecting a pool or spa; looking at safety barriers and sensors, stairs, ladders, diving platforms, electrical components and receptacles are just a few of the critical components to ensure safety. By following a comprehensive inspection checklist, recommended by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF), you can be rest assured your investment will be thoroughly inspected and a detailed digital report will be provided.
  • Retention Pond Inspections
    A retention pond, sometimes called a wet pond, wet detention basin, or storm-water management pond (SWMP), is an artificial pond with vegetation around the perimeter and a permanent pool of water in its design. It is used to manage storm-water runoff, for protection against flooding, for erosion control, and to serve as an artificial wetland and improve the water quality in adjacent bodies of water.
  • Asbestos Inspections
    Asbestos has historically been used in various applications for its durability and fire resistance. It can be found in a large number of building materials used both indoors and outdoors.  Three of the major health effects associated with asbestos exposure are lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.  We offer direct sampling of potential asbestos to be tested by certified labs.
  • Lead-based paint Inspections
    Lead can be toxic to humans and animals, causing a range of severe to minor health effects.  Lead can affect almost every organ and system in your body. Children six years old and younger are most susceptible to the effects of lead.  We are able to test for the presence of lean in water and physical samples from building materials.
  • Indoor Air Quality Assessments
    Air Quality Inspection focuses on assessing indoor air quality, conducting initial assessments, air sampling for pollutants, laboratory analysis, reporting findings, suggesting mitigation strategies, and conducting follow-up testing.
  • Radon Inspections
    Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in buildings all over the United States. Any building has the potential to contain radon. We measure your property’s radon levels and provide you with an easy-to-read report offering recommendations and peace of mind.
  • Mold Inspections
    The EPA  states that “Molds are part of the natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold is not usually a problem, unless it begins growing indoors.  Mold can negatively impact your health.  We offer direct sampling and air sampling to confirm or refute the presence of any “apparent molds”
