Buyer/Seller Standard Inspections

A standard home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.  To see a visual of what we check in a standard inspection, click "visual." At RED, we employ InterNACHI's standards of practice.

This includes: Roof, Exterior, Foundation, Structure, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing Electrical, Fireplace, 

Attic Insulation & Ventilation
Doors, Windows & Interior

New Home Warranty Inspections

Have you had a new house built within the past twelve months?  If so, you likely have a builders home warranty.  Most warranties end after a year.  At RED, we provide a new home warranty inspection, also known as an 11-month warranty inspection, although an inspection can be done a little sooner or a little after 11 months, as long as it is completed before your builder warranty has expired.  While most builders will go through and do an inspection for you, it is often wise to hire an inspector of your own to be sure you have an inspector who you know is on your side.  At RED, we are on you side!
