Ground Up Home Inspections abides by InterNACHI’s strict Standards of Practice. We perform a visual inspection of the home and check the age and working condition of the readily accessible areas and their components.
A Professional Home Inspection is designed to help discover “the unknown” about the home you are interested in purchasing. This provides the client with information regarding the condition of the systems and components of the home. This information enables the home buyer to make an educated decision about the prospective home.

A buyer can feel overwhelmed once they discover deficiencies in their prospective home. We offer a Re-Inspection of the property once repairs are done to make sure all the repairs were properly completed before purchasing the home.
The Seller of a home should have an understanding of their property’s condition before it goes on the market.
The Inspector will evaluate readily accessible components of a home and list all deficiencies. With this information the seller can make any necessary repairs, making the home more appealing to buyers.
New Construction Inspection
Even in brand new homes some building defects will be discovered during inspection. We will evaluate readily accessible components, as well as installed systems. We will pinpoint any safety hazards or material defects. If there are any deficiencies the buyer will be able to discuss repairs with the builder.
