Pre-Purchase Inspection

A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.

New Construction Inspections

New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder's policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.

Infrared (Thermal) Imaging

Thermal infrared scansThermal imaging is a non-destructive means of scanning for moisture, missing insulation, wet insulation, leaks in roof systems, and other building anomalies. We focus on heat or cooling loss by finding missing, misplaced, or damaged insulation in the walls, ceilings, and floors, as well as leaks around doors and windows which lets heat escape.

Drone Inspections

Drone Inspections

Drones can take pictures and video from above, enabling the inspector to view the entire roof. Many homes have roofs with sharp corners and angled window ledges that are inaccessible with typical inspection equipment. By using a drone, we can work around problematic areas to get a good look at the condition of the roof. Thompson Home Inspections offers drone inspections for both residential and commercial structures, including towers and bridges.

Pre-Warranty Expiration Inspections

Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty.  The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
