Home Inspections

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with it’s sale. Home inspections should be performed a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses this information to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase.

The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components.

Standard Home Inspection - What we check
Thermal Imaging Camera

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is included with all inspections. Infrared technology is used in a variety of fields, from medicine to meteorology. At Reliable Home Inspections, we use infrared scanning, or thermography, to determine whether a house is properly insulated, has dangerous electrical connections and/or possible leaks.

A passive, non-contact technology, thermal imaging can provide 2D images in real time with a thermal sensitivity of less than 0.1°C. Thermal imaging is the only non-contact technology on the market capable of delivering detailed real-time LWIR (Long Wave Infra-Red) images.

Example:

To the naked eye the first image shows no evidence of moisture around the fan. The purple coloring in the second image indicates moisture, that was verified with a moisture meter.

Infrared Proof of Water Damage

Example:

This thermal image indicates moisture inside the wall.

Chris did a very thorough inspection in a very quick amount of time. He explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, and took extra time in areas where I had questions. He was easy to work with, and I would definitely use Reliable again.

As a Real Estate agent, finding a reliable, thorough and well versed home inspector is invaluable, not only to my business, but to my clients and the biggest investment of their lives. I have used Chris with Reliable Home Inspections on well over 30 transactions. He is detailed in his inspections, makes sure the clients understand the information he provides, and his reports are easy to read and document the condition of the home in a very detailed manner. Chris is my #1 choice for home inspections and I send all of my business to him. Why? Because he takes care of my clients and ALWAYS finds a way to get me scheduled, even when I’m short on deadlines and need an inspection ASAP. He always delivers. There have been numerous times that Chris has pointed out items during an inspection that has saved me a lot headache, and my clients a lot of money. If you’re looking for a reliable home inspector, you can’t go wrong with Chris at Reliable Home Inspections.

#1 Choice for home inspections! Michael M./Realtor

When we bought our new home, we chose Reliable to do the home inspection. They were awesome! The report we were given was very thorough and gave us a clear understanding of what needed fixing. They also did a test to check for Radon and had some pretty high tech equipment that would show any hidden water damage! We did a walk through so we could see first hand the things that were mentioned in the report which was very helpful! Because I knew they did such a good job inspecting the house, I felt much more at ease when we actually went through with the purchase. Thanks guys!

Thanks Reliable Home Inspections! Brittni V./Customer

I have had the pleasure of working with Chris Lynch on several Home Inspections. Chris is easy to get ahold of, flexible with his schedule and accommodating to the clients. Chris is always on time, prompt with his reporting and takes the time to walk through with Clients, agents and any party that has questions or concerns. I feel fortunate that Chris was recommended to me and in turn, I have recommend Chris to everyone I come in contact with. I have worked with others in the past, however, seeing first hand how dedicated Chris is to ensuring his inspections are for the safety of the buyers, security and soundness of the property, I would not dream of going anywhere else!

100% Reliable! Mandi R./Realtor
