Lugar Inspection Services have trade experience and trained to perform an unbiased, visual home or commercial property inspection. The inspectors assess the home or commercial building from roof to foundation to identify safety issues and describe the current conditions on the property. Your inspector will walk you step-by-step through significant findings. Following the inspection, you will receive an easy-to-read, thorough report for your records. This can assist you in purchase negotiations, warranty repairs or when making future maintenance decisions.
We encourage you to allow time to attend at least the final portion of the inspection. This allows us to walk through the home with you, pointing out findings and explaining elements of the report. Following is a short description of some of our inspection services:
Homebuyer’s pre-closing inspections
Sometimes referred to as a “general home inspection,” these are booked prior to closing on either brand new or existing housing. The inspection covers hundreds of components in the home and includes a written report clearly outlining safety concerns and the current condition of the home. The report gives buyers the information they need to make the best decision and prepare for future maintenance.
Home seller’s pre-listing inspections
A general home inspection completed prior to listing or selling the home to give current owners an idea of maintenance items to address. A pre-listing inspection also helps inspire confidence in prospective buyers regarding the condition of the home and reduce time spent in contract negotiation because an unbiased, independent inspector has reviewed all major systems.
Commercial building inspections
Many times commercial buyers will purchase property unseen. A property inspection helps determine the current condition and potential maintenance or safety issues. Lugar Inspection Services can provide formal bidding documents or a one-on-one approach. Our typical commercial inspections are in general accordance with ASTM E 2018 standards. Following the inspection, Lugar Inspection Services will provide a written report, complete with photos, documenting all major building systems, components and conditions.
New home builder’s 11 month warranty inspections
Most brand-new home builders provide homeowners with a 12-month Builder’s Warranty. Ordering an inspection before the warranty expires gives the homeowner a professionally-prepared report to go over with the builder addressing possible issues. If repairs are not needed, it provides peace of mind regarding the quality of the new home.
Employee relocation home inspections
Time is generally of the essence when a family is relocated for business purposes. Prior to beginning negotiations for purchase of a home, relocation companies generally order a home inspection to determine the need for repair and maintenance.
Fireplace Inspections inspections
A general home inspection is a limited inspection with fireplaces and chimneys. A fireplace inspection helps determine the current condition and potential maintenance or safety issues within and around the fireplaces and chimneys. Lugar Inspection Services can provide a camera inspection of fireplaces and components. Following the inspection, Lugar Inspection Services will provide a written report that will be emailed to you the same day of the inspection, complete with photos, documenting all major building systems, components and conditions.
