Homebuyer Inspections

Hiring a professional home inspector to investigate the property for major defects and safety issues is vital to a successful purchase. Certified inspectors take a systematic approach to inspecting the homes various systems and they follow standards of practice that have been created through state licensing laws, or national home inspector associations. This is important because while some defects are known by sellers, there are often deteriorating systems that the seller does not know about. Most homeowners do not go up into their attic, look around their foundation, or get up on their roof on an annual basis and only notice that something has gone bad when the system fails. We find broken rafters, foundation cracks, rotted wood boards, missing shingles… things that you need to know as they may impact the marketability, or safety of the building. Check out our blog page to read some of the articles on the top ten defects, or list of major defects we find during our inspections. Then call us. The money you spend investigating the home can save you ten fold or 100 fold in expenses down the road. Prices are based off square footage and if you click the scheduling link, it will show you services and prices.

We look for major defects, systems that may be in the process of becoming a major defect, safety hazards, and items that may restrict your ability to obtain financing or insurance. The following areas of the home will be inspected as long as they can be accessed safely:

  • Structure
  • Exterior
  • Walls, doors, floors, and windows
  • Roofing and flashing
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Foundation
  • Attic
  • Insulation and ventilation
  • Basement and crawlspaces
  • Heating system
  • Cooling system
  • Plumbing system
  • Electrical system
  • Fireplaces

Additional services such as radon testing, sewer lateral line scopes, termite inspections, gas inspections, chimney or pool… are available. Some items we outsource to other specialists, others we handle in house. Our inspectors are appropriately licensed and trained on all services we provide, and we maintain proper insurance coverage for general liability, professional liability, and worker compensation. Our inspections adhere to the strict Standards of Practice (SOP) as stated by InterNACHIASHI, and the State of Illinois Licensing Laws.

Sellers Pre-Listing Inspection

Let’s be honest, the practice of having an inspection after an offer is accepted is a little backwards. Wouldn’t it make sense to understand what is being sold before it goes on the market?

A home seller pre-listing inspection allows the property owner some control of the property inspection process. When you hire an inspection company to perform a systematic review of the home before you put it on the market you move forward with solid information. Pre-listing inspections help with:

  • Reducing stress of the unknown for both the buyer and the seller. Expectations are set at the time of offer and nobody likes surprises on what they bought after they bought it.
  • Preventing renegotiation of the home sale halfway to closing which often leaves both parties upset.
  • Controlling the cost of repairs as you have time to shop out options and choose your own repair person.
  • Obtaining higher, and faster offers. Having the home move-in certified by Evergreen increases buyers confidence. When you share the report and the items you elected to repair or leave for the next homeowner  everyone is on the same page and decisions can be made with confidence.

Have your home Move-In Certified! Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected by Evergreen Property Inspectors.

Commercial Property Inspection Services can be found on our commercial page.

Thermal Imaging

A Thermal Imaging camera is used as needed during the inspection. The camera allows us to see areas of heat loss, moisture, or other deficiencies that we can’t see with the naked eye.

Moisture Meter

Our Moisture Meter measures the levels of moisture in the air throughout the home. With this tool, we can find areas of moisture intrusion and possible mold growth.

Aerial Drone Photography

An Aerial Drone can be used to take aerial photographs of a roof that we cannot access safely on foot. These images can be used to find any areas of the roof that may be damaged.

Additional Services

Re-Inspection

$99 fee
It can be helpful for buyers and sellers alike to schedule a Re-Inspection after the repairs in the CRL have been addressed. We will re-inspect specified repaired items to verify whether indications of defects still exist.

Pre-Listing Inspection

A Pre-Listing Inspection can be a great option for sellers who want to increase their negotiating power and make their homes more appealing to potential buyers. An ASHI Certified Inspector (ACI) will inspect the home before it is put on the market, finding the issues that sellers should repair before listing.

New Construction Inspection

Oversights in construction should be addressed before a new home’s final walkthrough. We will thoroughly inspect the new home, allowing builder’s time to address any final issues before completing the project.

New Construction Phase Inspections

Phase Inspections are a great option for builders who want each new phase of their project to be in perfect condition before moving on to the next. We will inspect individual phases in the process and then perform a final walkthrough inspection at the project’s end.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Homes that were sold with a one-year builder’s warranty should be inspected for defects during the 11th month. We will find the issues in the home that are covered under the warranty, allowing the owner to request repairs before becoming financially responsible for them.

Sewer Lateral Line Inspection

A sewer lateral line inspection, or sewer scope, looks at the main plumbing waste line under the home taking waste to a public or private sewer system.
