Professional North Carolina Home Inspection Services
At Aarrow Home Inspections, we strictly adhere to the state of North Carolina’s 2018 Standards of Practice (SOP) during all of our home inspection services. During inspections, we provide a non-invasive visual assessment of the property which includes the following safely accessible areas:
- Structural components
- Air conditioning
- Insulation and ventilation
- Built-in kitchen appliances
We use a Thermal Imaging camera during our home inspection services. This camera uses infrared technology to show us areas of heat or heat loss behind home surfaces not visible to the naked eye alone. With this information, we can diagnose moisture intrusion, improper insulation, and electrical hotspots.
A home is a huge investment, so buyers deserve to have all of the information possible about a home in order to make wise purchasing and repair decisions. During a Buyer’s Inspection, we help the buyer understand the home’s condition, operation, and defects so that they don’t go into their real estate transaction blindly.
Sellers can benefit from a Pre-Listing Inspection by becoming more knowledgeable about the home and how to communicate its issues and strengths to potential buyers. During the Pre-Listing Inspection, we help the seller understand their property inside and out so that they can make repairs before listing and offer full disclosure to buyers who will be scheduling inspections of their own.
New Construction Inspection
During a New Construction Inspection, we thoroughly inspect a new home for the inevitable oversights that can be made during the building process. This allows builders to fix building defects and prepare the home for move-in before the final walk-through takes place.
New Construction Phase Inspections
Having the home inspected periodically throughout the construction process can help builders avoid sealing defects away as they continue to the next step. Our New Construction Phase Inspections include a Pre-Drywall Inspection, a Final Walk-Through Inspection, and an 11th Month Warranty Inspection. We offer a 10% discount when all three inspections are booked at the same time.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
A home that was sold with a 12-month builder’s warranty should be inspected for relevant defects during the 11th month. During the 11th Month Warranty Inspection, we help homeowners identify the issues in the home that are covered so that they can request the proper repairs before the warranty is over.
Home Maintenance Inspection
Staying one step ahead of minor damages in the home can save you money on larger and more serious repairs down the line. During routine Home Maintenance Inspections, we find these small maintenance issues on the property so that they can be addressed promptly and before growing.
A home’s buyer and seller will agree which repairs need to be made before closing as a result of the Buyer’s Inspection. After these repairs are made, a Re-Inspection can be done for added peace of mine. We revisit the home to check that the repairs have been completed as agreed upon and that the home is ready for closing.
Radon, a cancer-causing gas that naturally occurs in soil, can rise into a home, become trapped, and put anyone inside at risk. This gas cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted, so we use professional Radon Testing equipment to detect levels inside the home.
During a Termite Inspection, the home is checked for signs of an infestation, termite-related wood damage, and the moisture which attracts termites in the first place. We contract out Termite Inspections through a third-party vendor.
A Septic Inspection can help you better understand the age, size, condition, and repair needs of your septic system, which can’t be seen without professional equipment. We contract out Septic Inspections through a third-party vendor.
No one likes to deal with the horrible smell of sewage in the house or dirty water in the front yard. If you are experiencing these issues, it mostly means your septic tank is full, damaged, or there might be a drain field issue.
