Home Inspections

CH Construction offers our customers with complete home inspections.  We visually inspect all accessible systems of the home, from roof to foundation.  However, we also focus on  defects and the overall integrity of the home.

Accessible systems and components of the home include; structural, roof, exterior, plumbing, electrical, heating, air conditioning, insulation & ventilation, interior, and fireplaces.

We provide a computer generated reports with the professional opinion of the inspector. Moreover, we also add recommendations to correct or monitor the defects found in the report.

As a licensed contractor, CH Construction offers their customers the confidence of knowing our inspector has experience in the construction industry.  Additionally, we have a high ethical and moral standard.  Therefore, you will truly know you are in good hands.

Types of Home Inspections:

  • Standard Home Inspection – Includes the structural system, roof system, exterior and plumbing system.  Electrical system, heating, air conditioning, insulation & ventilation.  We also inspect the interior and fireplaces.
  • Framing Inspections – After the framing has been erected and the rough-ins completed, our inspector will make sure everything was done right. This type of inspection must be performed prior to installation of insulation in the wall and roof cavities.
  • Only then can your home inspector observe all of the structural elements. These include beams, girders, posts, piers, pilasters, bearing and partition wall framing, duct work, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing runs, exterior cladding application, roof cover installation, truss, and rafter framing.
  • Additionally, we look for evidence of improper installation practices, poor or incomplete point load distribution, and structural defects.
  • Warranty Inspection – Warranty Home Inspections happen before the one year warranty on a new construction has expired.  Usually at about the 11th month.
  • The inspection report provides homeowners with a punch list of home issues to be addressed by the builder.  This is while it is still the builder’s responsibility to make repairs if necessary. Warranty inspections cover all of the items covered in a standard inspection, as well as cosmetic issues that are not caused by the homeowner.
  • Maintenance and Pre-Sale – This inspection is tailored for the homeowner who would like to know more about their home. Oftentimes, people who have lived in their home for years have concerns about hidden safety hazards.  Or they want to maintain their home properly. This inspection would be  beneficial for those who have recently purchased their home without a pre-sale inspection.  Or for sellers who wish to discover existing problems before listing their home.
  • Insurance Claims – Homeowners who have an insurance claim and need an unbiased inspection on any damage reported in the claim.
