Home Inspection Services
Every year Fire Departments in the USA respond to over 47,000 home fires caused by electrical failures. At Blue Ridge NC Home Inspections we are trained to locate these potential risks and make recommendations for repairing these potential safety hazards.
While this is not a structural engineering report, we can help point out deficiencies that might be indicative of bigger problems.
Proper Appliance Operation
You’ve just moved into your new home. You unpack your dishes and place them in the dishwasher to help knock the dust off them. You go on about your chores and do not notice the water starting to come out of the cabinet under your sink. What to do now? During our home inspections we test for the proper operation of all your appliances and include it in our digital HomeGauge Report.
HVAC System Inspection
As part of our home inspection we will operate the Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning system. We will make sure that the HVAC system is heating or cooling to within the manufacture’s specifications. There are certain conditions that may exist during the home inspection that may prevent the testing of either the heating or cooling system.
Inspect Roof Coverings
What causes more damage to single family homes in the US than anything else? Water… We will visually inspect your homes roof covering for existing or the presence of past water intrusions into your home. At Blue Ridge NC Home Inspections our reports will also give you an idea of the relative condition of the roof covering, vent boots and other penetrations that could cause problems.
Licensed Pest Inspections
Don’t let Termites, Powder Post Beetles and other insects destroy the structural components of your home. Let Blue Ridge NC Home Inspections detect the presence of an active or old infestation.
