Home Inspections

We use the InterNACHI Standards of Practice as the basis for our home inspection standard and build on that to create an easy to read interactive report using our own proven method developed over thousands of inspections.

What We Inspect

Here are some of the parts of the home and it's systems that we’ll look at in a standard residential home inspection:

  • Roof
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Exterior windows, doors and siding
  • Balconies, porches, patios and walkways
  • Exterior grading, retaining walls and driveways
  • Attached garages
  • Attic structure, insulation and ventilation
  • Electrical system: panel, devices and fixtures
  • HVAC system
  • Plumbing system and fixtures
  • Interior doors, windows, floors and ceilings (non-cosmetic)
  • Built-in appliances
  • Foundation and floor structure
  • Crawl space or basement

You can view the complete InterNACHI Standards of practice here.

Home Inspection Reports

Method Inspection reports are some of the best in the industry. We have spent hundreds of hours writing the template that makes up our reporting platform in order to provide you with a report that is easy to read, understand and take action on. Your report will be full of useful informational photos and video of the home and its systems. The items in need of repair are categorized by severity and many times include useful graphics showing the proper repair method. A Method inspection has all the information you need with none of the frills and fillers. We won’t fill your report with useless information or gimmicks to give the appearance of value. Our value is embodied in our slogan: Simple, Fast, Accurate.
