Get a general home inspection from Blue Ridge Home Inspections

A Home Is a Large Investment. Don't Go in Blind.

When you purchase a new home, you're also buying any problems that come with it. These problems can add up to a large expense. You can think of a home inspection as a safety net which protects you from falling into a poor investment. Problems found during the inspection which were not disclosed by the seller can put you in a stronger position for negotiation.

A happy family moving into their new home.

The Emotional Roller Coaster

Buying a home is a stressful process, full of ups and downs. It's easy to become attached to a home before you've bought it, making it difficult to see problems clearly. That is why it's wise to bring in an unbiased inspector with specific training to assess the condition of the home.

By knowing the issues and shortcomings of the house you can avoid surprises later and rest easy in your decision.

We Go Above and Beyond

With our general home inspection, you're getting more than your average home inspection. We cover all of the items considered in a typical home inspection, but we also perform the additional inspections listed below. Some of these services act as an extra layer to check for major potential issues, while others help to ensure comfortable living in your home.

  • Check for moisture intrusion in specific areas, using a moisture meter that is capable of both probing and scanning.
  • Look for grading & drainage issues, which can lead to major problems.
  • Look for signs of different types of foundation settlement.
  • Inspect the water supply line.
  • Check water flow and pressure.
  • Test the hot water temperature.
  • Delta-T test (HVAC system).
  • Inspect electrical panel and sub-panels in all buildings.
  • Visually inspect the well equipment or water supply.
  • Visually inspect porches/decks.
  • A passive Thermal Imaging scan is also included (roof insulating systems and other areas).
It's About More Than Just Money

A home inspection doesn't just save you money. It also helps to protect your family. Safety issues can arise from dangerous handyman work, outdated electrical systems, lead pipes, and more. We'll check the home for potential safety issues such as fire hazards, electrical hazards, structural problems, and hazardous materials.

First-Time Home Buyers

We highly encourage you to come along for the inspection, especially if you're a first-time home buyer. We'll show you around and help you get familiar with the mechanics of the home, as well as the location of any water or gas shut off valves. Feel free to ask questions along the way. We'll even give you home maintenance tips — especially useful if you've never owned a house before.
