Thermography

$75

Using infrared cameras, our specially trained thermography inspectors look for items that may not be seen with the naked eye during a regular home inspection.  We've found whole walls missing insulation!  (This is a great add-on for new construction inspections.)  Thermography also highlights when leaks or moisture are present in walls.

Full Irrigation

$75

Our home inspections include a basic irrigation check, where we check the valves and for any readily visible leaks or issues with your irrigation system.  A full irrigation inspection is a more detailed and thorough irrigation inspection for the new homeowner who wants to know more.
