Britannia Home Inspection Services
Home Purchase Inspection
The Home Purchase Inspection offered by Britannia Home Inspections adheres to InterNACHI’s strict Standards of Practice (SOP). During this in-depth inspection, the following areas of the home will be checked for any signs of damage and defect as long as they can be safely accessed:
- Basement, foundation, crawlspace, and structure
- Attic, insulation, and ventilation
- Doors, windows, and interior
Re-InspectionA Re-Inspection is a follow-up to the Home Purchase Inspection and can help keep buyer and seller on the same page as they move forward with their deal. We will revisit the home when the repairs requested after the initial inspection have been completed. We ensure that all changes have been made as requested.
New Construction InspectionTo best prepare a new home for its final walkthrough, builders should consider having a New Construction Inspection completed. Bringing in a professional outside perspective can help builders find any oversights or defects in the home’s construction.
11th Month Warranty InspectionNewly constructed homes that came with a year-long builder’s warranty should be inspected during the warranty’s 11th month. We will check the home for any defects covered under this warranty, giving the new homeowner time in the final month to request repairs before becoming financially responsible for them.
Commercial Building InspectionFor safety and investment reasons, it is important to have a Commercial Building Inspection done before buying new commercial property. We thoroughly inspect the building and its units for signs of defects, damages, and safety hazards.
Moisture MeterWith our Moisture Meter, we can measure levels of moisture in different areas of the home. This information helps us diagnose any moisture intrusion issues and can point us in the direction of areas that may have mold growth.
Combustible Gas DetectionGas leaks can be dangerous for your health and are a major fire hazard. With a Combustible Gas Detector, we can diagnose a gas leak and pinpoint where it is coming from.
Pre-Listing InspectionA Pre-Listing Inspection is a great option for home sellers who want their home to stand out on the market. We will inspect the home for damages, defects, and safety concerns that the seller doesn’t want potential buyers to find, giving them the opportunity to repair the home as desired before listing it for sale.
New Construction Phase InspectionsNew Construction Phase Inspections are a great way to guarantee that a finished construction project is defect-free from start to finish. We will inspect after each phase of the building process, making sure that it is defect-free before the builder moves on to the next one.
4 Point InspectionFor insurance purposes, a 4 Point Inspection can be done of the home’s most significant areas rather than the entire property. These areas are the roof, HVAC system, plumbing system, and electrical system.
Thermal ImagingWe use a state of the art FLIR E4 upgraded E8 Infrared Camera to see areas within a home’s walls that would not others be visible to us. This camera picks up areas of heat loss within the walls and helps us diagnose a moisture intrusion issue or problems with the home’s electrical panel.
SpectoscopeIn some situations, a home’s roof or other high-up areas may not be safe for us to access on foot. A Spectoscope allows up to inspect these areas safely from the ground by attaching a camera to an adjustable pole in order to collect photos or video of the area.
Sewer Line Inspection
The cost of repairing a damaged sewer line can be astronomical. If you’re buying a new home, the last thing you want is to have a big out-of-pocket expense after moving in. Find out in advance by adding a sewer line inspection to your home inspection.
