Knowing Before You Buy

Pre-Purchase Inspection

A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The inspector will run the sinks, tubs and showers, and flush the toilets. Also, check every accessible outlet. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Same day electronic reporting including pictures. Pre-purchase inspections include duplexes and condominiums.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner’s knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

Keeping Everyone Accountable

Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections

Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report sent the same day via electronic reporting, along with digital photos.

Keeping your Family Safe

Radon Testing

Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family’s health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. Timber Ridge Home Inspections LLC is a certified radon measurement provider, having completed the Radon Measurement Operator Proficiency course. We use measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48 hours, with the results available same day the test is completed.

New Homes Still Need To Be Inspected

New Construction Inspections

I offer new construction phase inspections in the Southeastern Wisconsin vicinity. New Construction Inspections are performed during the following phases:

PHASE 1- Foundation Inspection; This first inspection is usually performed just prior to backfilling of soil after the forms have been removed from the concrete. The inspector should be able to see the drain lines.

PHASE 2- Framing Inspection (Pre-Drywall, before insulation); In this inspection, the inspector examines the plumbing, electrical wiring and duct installations, the roof structure and roof surface and structural framing.

PHASE 3- Final Inspection; Before the buyer accepts the home from the builder, the inspector perform a thorough visual examination of the exterior and interior of the property just as he would for any full home inspection including all of the major systems, appliances, and surfaces. The final inspection report serves as a “deficiency list” of items to be completed or corrected by the builder prior to final settlement.

Keeping Your Tenants Safe

Investor Property Inspections

Includes Multi-Unit Housing
Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant’s departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.
