High Standard Inspections
At Windy River Home Inspections LLC, we make sure that all of our inspection services meet the high standards expected of us. We abide by the Standards of Practice (SOP) as stated by both the state of Washingtonand the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).
Buyer’s Home Inspection
The Buyer’s Home Inspection is designed to help home buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into before deciding to purchase a home. Without this inspection, buyers run the risk of hidden issues and damages in the home popping up after purchase and requiring expensive repairs that the buyer didn’t count on. We will do a thorough walkthrough inspection of the home to analyze each system and component’s condition and uncover damages or defects.
The following areas, as long as they are visible and safely accessible, will be inspected:
- Roof including gutters and downspouts
- Structural components
- Foundation and crawlspace
- Exterior including cladding, doors, and windows
- Deck, porch, and patio
- Driveways and walkways
- Attached garage
- Interior including doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, and stairs
- Attic, insulation, and ventilation
- Electrical system
- Plumbing system
- Heating and cooling systems
- Built-in appliances
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
Home inspections can be just as helpful for sellers as they are for buyers. Putting a home on the market before having it inspected can lead to the seller having less negotiating power and being blindsided by issues that turn up during a Buyer’s Home Inspection. During a Pre-Listing Home Inspection, we thoroughly search the home for any damages so that the seller has the opportunity to repair them before potential buyers see the property.
Termites and other wood-destroying organisms may be small, but the damage they can cause is severe. Termites, which are attracted to wood and moisture in a building, tunnel through important structures and cause weak spots and expensive structural damage. We will search the building for signs of a termite infestation and any damage present, then offer our professional advice about remediation.
