Never buy or sell a home without a professional home inspection. It protects you, your family and your investment!
A professional home inspection serves many purposes. Generally, it is a visual inspection that informs you of the current condition of the property. Keep in mind a minor plumbing, electrical, structural or even exterior issue could cost you thousands more than a quality home inspection.
- Life threatening issues ranging from electrical concerns, gas and carbon monoxide leaks to structural deficiencies that can be present in homes.
- Legal liability issues (trip hazards, loose, or missing hand railings for example) and
- Unexpected and costly repairs.
I am Mike Engle, founder of Pro-Tec Home Inspections L.L.C. I am a certified and insured home inspector.
Certification training was obtained through both:
"Kaplan Professional Schools Training Associates" &
"International Association of Certified Home Inspectors" (InterNACHI)
I am not only a current member of InterNACHI, which requires on-going and advanced training, but Pro-Tec also combines that training with advanced electronic equipment to ensure the best possible inspection and guarantee that piece of mind every homeowner should have.
Thermal Imagers: For example, when issues are visually observed (water stained wall, damaged or hot electrical components, etc.) we are able to better assess the internal or hidden damage and the extent of the damage can become more obvious via thermal imaging.
Electronic gas detector: The smallest of gas leaks can be lethal so we don't take chances by relying on sense of smell alone. Gas detectors (sniffers) can identify the precise location of a leak.
Electronic Moisture detector: Checks moisture % in drywall, concrete and wood for potential rot damage and mold risks as well as hidden leaks or water intrusions.
Instant electronic inspections reports: This is the best part of our inspections. You don't have to wait days for the mail or need to decipher messy handwriting. Your report will be completed by your Home Inspector and in most cases, sent to your email prior to even leaving the inspection site. The report is easy to follow, color coded and will contain needed pictures from the actual inspection site.
