Wood Destroying Organism Inspections (WDO)
Wood destroying organism inspections are structural evaluations for visible and accessible evidence of an infestation or damage by wood destroying organisms, such as subterranean termites, dampwood termites, carpenter ants, moisture ants, wood boring beetles of the family Anobiidae, and wood decay fungus (rot). Upon completion, a report will be provided.
**In the state of Oregon FHA and VA insured loans require that WDO inspections be completed by an Oregon Department of Agriculture certified inspector.
Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections
Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder's Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection.
Pre Listing Inspections
A pre listing inspection is similar to a prepurchase inspection, pointing out any major concerns that should be addressed so they don’t scare buyers away from the house when the home is inspected by the buyer’s inspector. Since today’s real estate market is considered a “buyer’s market”, there are many homes for sale and buyers have plenty of homes from which to choose. A prelisting inspection can give a seller a powerful marketing edge and instill greater confidence and peace of mind when selling a home. At the conclusion, of the inspection a completed report will be provided.
New Construction Inspections
New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk-through. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the builder depending on the builder's policy. The inspection should be scheduled a few days prior to your final walk-through with the builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your final walk-through. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be provided.
Pre-Purchase Inspections (older & newer homes, condos, manufactured homes)
A home inspection is comprised of a visual evaluation of the home’s major systems and structural elements. This inspection will determine which areas are in satisfactory working condition and also which systems and elements need to be monitored, repaired or replaced. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion, a report will be provided.
