Pre-Purchase (Buyer's) Home Inspections from Bartee Inspections

Pre-Purchase Inspections

Purchasing a new home also means buying that home's problems. With a pre-purchase home inspection you can see exactly what you're buying. Problems discovered during the inspection could allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs — potentially saving you thousands of dollars. We'll even help you become familiar with the property.

New Construction Home Inspections from Bartee Inspections

New Construction Inspections

Unfortunately, new does not always mean perfect. In fact, new doesn't even guarantee good. Material defects and human error during the construction process can lead to expensive problems later on. A new construction home inspection can help identify these problems early, when they're cheaper to fix. Some issues may even be covered under warranty.

Pre-pour inspections for new construction homes from Bartee Inspections

Pre-Pour Inspections

The pre-pour inspection, as the name suggests, takes place after the foundation has been prepared but before the foundation concrete has been poured. Once the concrete has been poured, the opportunity to inspect the foundation is gone. The Pre-Pour Inspection should be scheduled, in coordination with the builder, at least a couple of days before the pour date to ensure that any issues can be addressed.

Pre-drywall inspections for new construction homes from Bartee Inspections

Pre-Drywall Inspections

The pre-drywall inspection takes place after the home's roofing material, exterior wall cladding, and windows have been installed, along with the "roughing in" of the framing, plumbing, and electrical wiring. At this point the walls have not been covered, granting the inspector access to plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems that are normally inaccessible. Some common problems discovered at this stage include improper cutting or boring of load-bearing studs and improperly installed window flashings.

Pool and spa inspection services from Bartee Inspections

Pool & Spa Inspections

If you're looking to buy a home with a pool or spa, then it's strongly advised to get a pool and spa inspection. While these features are highly sought after, they can also be very expensive to maintain and repair. A pool & spa inspection includes checking the pool's structure, safety features, equipment, as well as the surrounding deck.

Lawn irrigation system inspections from Bartee Inspections

Irrigation System Inspections

If you're considering buying a home equipped with a lawn irrigation system (sprinkler system), we highly recommend having that system inspected by a professional. This is a visual inspection of the controllers, connections and valves, exposed lines, and sprinkler heads to ensure that everything is working properly. Damaged or leaking irrigation systems can have high replacement or repair costs, and can significantly increase your water bill.

Termite and wood destroying organisim (WDI) inspection services from Bartee Inspections

Termite (WDI) Inspections

Commonly referred to as a termite inspection, Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) inspections look for more than just termites, including wood boring beetles and carpenter ants. Termites alone cause billions of dollars in property damage every year in the United States. Because they can be difficult to detect, a properly trained inspector is necessary to check for the presence of any WDIs in your home.

Water quality testing fromBartee Inspections

Water Quality Testing

Water quality testing is important to verify that the water in your home is not tainted by any dangerous or offensive contaminants such as certain strains of bacteria, lead, nitrates/nitrites, other heavy metals such as arsenic, and more. Water quality tests should be performed regardless of whether the water comes from a public source or a private well.

Aerobic Septic System Inspection

Septic repairs can be very expensive, not to mention unpleasant. We offer inspections for aerobic septic systems to makes sure the system is safe and in good working condition. An aerobic septic inspection includes a visual inspection of the tanks, checking the operation of safety controls, checking for the presence of chlorine tablets, checking for damaged sprinkler heads, and more.

Well Flow Testing

A well water flow test will check the condition and yield of an underground well that supplies water to your home. The test checks the flow rate and pressure over an extended period of time. If the flow rate from the well is not high enough, then you may have water supply problems, especially for a large family.

Re-Inspections

Did we discover any major problems when we inspected your home? Once the issue has been resolved by a professional, we can return to inspect the items and ensure that the work has been properly completed. Remember to always have the work performed by a licensed professional.

A Standard Home Inspection Includes:

Interior

Exterior
