We can inspect your detached building along with your home. Several different types of detached structures exist, including…
- Mother-in-Law Suites
…and so on. Because these are separate structures, usually with their own Electric, HVAC, Plumbing and roofing sections, there is an additional inspection charge.
Defective (Chinese) Drywall
Defective (a.k.a. Chinese) drywall was an imported product of substandard quality containing minerals that produce corrosive off-gassing. Homes with this product can have damage to their electrical wiring and plumbing. The drywall also poses a health risk to the home’s occupants.
We have performed hundreds of visual inspections for defective drywall. In our inspection report, we will include our determination on the likelihood of defective drywall’s presence in the home.
The inspection will go in-depth and require the disassembly of some components. However, our inspection is intentionally non-destructive. If sampling (cutting out pieces of the drywall) is needed, that must be worked out and approved by the current owner. This will incur additional fees, including the lab testing.
