Other Inspection Services


Awards Home Inspections offers inspection services for new construction, rental properties and commercial buildings. It’s important to have any property inspected, and Award’s inspectors understand the unique problems that can arise from new home construction and rental properties. Our inspectors are NRS certified (New Residential Structure certified).


New Construction Inspections


New construction inspections are performed after completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the builder. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on — either by you or the builder. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the builder, ensuring that most, if not all, of the last-minute items have been completed prior to inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection, a completed report will be emailed to you.


New Construction Warranty Expiration Inspections


New construction warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your builder’s one-year warranty.  The inspection is performed to verify that proper building techniques were used, and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You’re emailed a detailed report of the inspection along with relevant photos. 


Investor Property Inspections

(including multi-unit housing and commercial)


Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments that reflect the condition of the property. 


Rather than waiting until something breaks, periodic inspections of properties currently in your portfolio ensure needed repairs are identified. Often, this is done when a tenant departs.  Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse to the property. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.


Commercial


Inspections can be performed on schools, churches, office complexes and more. After the inspection, you receive a report on your commercial property from a licensed inspector, who is also a licensed electrician.
