I’m am the owner of Hearthside Property Inspections LLC.
I'm an accredited, independent Home Inspector with extensive experience in construction trades and customer service. I have
an extensive background in home construction, excavating, and engineering.
I offer my clients assistance in all aspects of inspections before, during, and after closing. I use IR Thermography on all inspections to look for defects that otherwise might be missed by the naked eye. Because I take a comprehensive approach to my home inspections all my inspections are backed by a InterNACHI's Honor Guarantee and InterNACHI's "We'll Buy Your Home" Guarantee.
Home Buyer Inspections
We advocate for you in every aspect of the inspection process prior to the closing. We are unbiased in our reporting.
We report visible defects that we determine
to be material and relevant to the home buying.
We back our inspections with the
MoveInCertified® Seller Inspections
Let us inspect your home before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® home has been pre-inspected, which means that the seller can confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards. A Move-In Certified® Seller's Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now.
11-Month Warranty Inspections
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. We’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. Our non-invasive inspection is based on observations of the visible and apparent condition of the interior and exterior of the structure, including its major systems and components. Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any material defects observed on the date of the inspection. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they’re still in force.
Find construction defects before they are covered by other building materials. We can inspect all major phases of the construction process.
Foundation, pre-drywall, and a final inspection prior to taking possession of the home ensures your best possible chance of owning a new home free from defects.
Annual Maintenance Inspections
We play a vital role in a homeowner’s regular home maintenance plan by performing routine home maintenance inspections. Every home should be inspected every year to catch safety issues and issues that could lead to very costly repairs if not caught early.
