New Construction Inspection
A newly constructed home needs to be inspected by a professional third party to make sure that the home is up to standard. We’ll perform a full evaluation of the property prior to the builder’s final walkthrough so that we have a chance to inform you of potential issues while the builder is still under contract. Inspections include: draw inspection (verification of installed elements for lender release of funds); phase inspections (conducted at several stages of the construction process); and inspections of new homes ready for occupancy and assessment of the condition of installs components to supplement code compliance inspection provided by local authorities.
Residential Home Inspection
JR Home Inspection provides the in-depth, professional home inspection services that offers you a full breakdown of your home’s condition and provides you with the peace of mind that you seek. This inspection is a thorough investigation of a residential property’s visible and readily accessible areas, including most structural components and mechanical systems. We include a free Infrared Thermal Imaging scan to give the service an even greater value, helping us to identify issues that aren’t easy to spot using conventional methods.
We inspect these areas of a home:
Aerial & Drone Inspections
An aerial drone can fly and hover over any rooftop regardless of its size or condition. Whether your roof is brand new or damaged and deteriorating, a drone captures the details with color pictures or video. Certain areas are too steep for foot traffic or, in some cases, too damaged to walk safely. This scenario calls for a drone’s assistance. The drone is directed to hard-to-reach areas to assist in taking photos or video from several angles, providing a clear view of the roof and its condition. High-resolution images are standard with aerial drones. By zooming in on the image, a we can find the smallest anomalies on the rooftop. A drone can identify problem areas that may result in leaks and water damage. Roofing issues such as: missing or broken shingles, chipped tiles, or flashing that is rusting or missing may be found during an aerial inspection. Some inspections will also survey the surrounding land on a property. Drones might fly over trees and nearby power lines in order to verify their spacing. Drones can be used to give a complete aerial view of the property and the neighboring areas.
Selling a home comes with its own set of challenges, and you want to do everything you can to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. This inspection helps you out by imparting a better understanding of your home’s condition—giving you a chance to make repairs before putting your home on the market and to communicate more effectively with prospective buyers.
A pre-listing inspection focuses on proper functionality of all major systems and components of the house: heating and cooling; electrical; plumbing; roof and structure; siding; and doors and windows. It’s a full inspection for the seller to better understand the condition of their home prior to the buyer’s inspection. This gives the seller important information to consider so they’re not caught off-guard in the midst of a transaction.
Mold Inspection & Testing
A mold inspection starts as a home inspection, which is a non-invasive, visual examination of the home's interior and exterior, and its various systems and components.
The scope of a mold inspection requires particular knowledge of HVAC systems, roofs, the exterior, and plumbing systems. Musty odors, moisture intrusion via a roof or plumbing leak, or even evidence of suspected mold can warrant a mold inspection.
Thermal Imaging Moisture Scan
Thermal Imaging is a valuable service for those concerned about hidden moisture, slab leaks, HVAC performance, missing insulation, or electrical wiring resistance. We regularly use IR to find hidden material defects such as: moisture intrusion, air infiltration, missing or compressed insulation, dangerous electrical resistance, even plumbing slab leaks.
A roof inspection is included with all of the physical inspections we perform. Our construction experts will find the material defects and installation errors by walking most first (and some second) story roofs. We still believe walking roofs is the best roof inspection method unless a safety issue such as an unusually steep sloped roof is present. In some cases roofs are either too high above the ground level or wet and can not be safely walked upon. For these cases, we have developed proprietary technology that allows us to clearly view extra tall roofs via high precision, elevated/remote controlled camera. This innovative technology helps us identify many defects that might have otherwise gone unnoticed. This also assists our clients by helping them get the seller to bear the expense of repairing the problems prior to close of escrow and/or saving them the extra cost and hassle of hiring a separate roofing professional. Additionally roof inspections assist in determining whether a roof is structurally sound or shows signs of weakness, dry rot, or leaks that should be repaired in the case that solar panels are to be installed
