What to expect from a Property Inspection from ECS 5.8
Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home or commercial property, ECS 5.8 of Linden, IN, provides professional and quality inspection services from the moment you call us. Our licensed home and commercial inspectors will walk through your property with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for property inspectors established by InterNACHI, the best in the industry.
After we walk through the property together, we will personally explain the general condition of it and its systems with you. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
Our job is to make sure you understand all aspects of the inspection process, and we do not stop there. Should you have any questions or concerns after the report, you are encouraged to give us a call. We will provide you with an explanation of the report and options to assist you in making a confident decision about your property.
Home inspections are a vital part of the home-buying process because they help the buyer avoid any surprises with the home they are purchasing. A home inspection includes an evaluation of structural elements, electrical features, plumbing, and heating and cooling systems. A buyer would be crazy to skip the home inspection. That’s why a good real estate agent will make sure it is part of the home-buying contract.
Commercial property inspections are a general overview of all major systems and components present in the building including the structure, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, exterior and interior (similar to the complete home inspection). Light commercial inspections include low-rise office complexes, apartment complexes, investment properties, restaurants, warehouses, churches, motels, resorts, and other types of buildings.
A mold inspector is a professionally trained specialist who evaluates both the presence of microbial contamination and the source of any underlying moisture intrusion. We are trained to properly perform air and surface samples and to interpret the results of the selected analysis method for these samples.
Your home’s roof is its first line of defense against storms and extreme weather, be it a foot or more of snow dropping from the sky overnight or high winds that tear through the town. When homeowners place blind faith in their roof and neglect it completely until the first sign of a leak appears in the ceiling, they could already be facing much larger problems—unwanted structural issues, mold growth, or damaged insulation, for starters. Spare yourself a headache down the road by having your roof periodically inspected.
Finding out that your home has termites instills a sense of fear among most homeowners. You typically can’t see or hear them and frequently only a trained inspector can find signs of infestation. Treatment by the homeowner for the control of termites is virtually impossible. Specialized equipment is used and we have the knowledge necessary for control strategies.
