- Interior walls, floors, stairways, railings, countertops, cabinets, doors, windows, garage doors, etc.
- Pool, The scope of our inspection includes a limited visual inspection of the pool electrical system, primary circulation system, pool barrier system, the pool interior surface, and surrounding deck.
We do not dismantle components such as filters, pumps, and heaters. We do not test water chemistry. We do not test or operate pool heaters, cleaning systems, control valves, chemical injectors, or similar components.
When a home buyer asks a seller to make repairs to a property after a home inspection, once the seller finishes with these repairs, the buyer might order a re-inspection to verify that these repairs were completed.
Final Walk-Through / “Blue Tape” Inspection
Final Walk-through Inspection scheduled before the buyers go to settlement on purchasing a newly constructed home. We walk through the property with the builder to conduct a final inspection. This walk-through provides an opportunity to spot items that may need to be corrected or adjusted by the developer before closing or even after closing within an agreed time with the buyer. A walk-through can take an hour and a half to two hours, depending on the size and condition of the property. If it is a condo, this might take approximately an hour.
