We’ll look for damages, including missing siding, cracks and excessive soil contact to ensure pests cannot easily sneak their way in.
We check for possible foundation failure, indicated by cracks or settling.
Our inspectors check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the house, which prevents water from entering the home or causing damage to the foundation.
If accessible and visible, we look for roof damage or poor installation that may allow for water penetration. We also check the condition of the gutters and we can even use drone technology for a closer look!
