Purchasing real estate
has many hurdles, understanding the condition of the property is one of
the primary considerations to giving the land and structures value.
With over 25 years experience working in real estate from; inspections,
thermography, construction (new & remodeling), flood damage
remediation, etc.. Barber Inspection Services LLC has better
comprehension of commercial and residential buildings from the inside
and out. As an inspector with construction experience my visual
inspections are enhanced, then by adding the use of thermal imaging I
add a 6th sense to observe temperature differences that can't be seen
with the naked eye.
Additionally, with larger homes and commercial
inspections I team up with other inspectors and consultants as needed. I
don't have the technical knowledge or qualifications to perform every
inspection requested by clients but I can arrange for, and facilitate the
Your residential inspections are performed by a qualified inspector with a construction background. This blends real world understanding of homes with the written materials and classroom education needed to become a TREC licensed professional inspector. Adding the use of thermal imaging, essentially adding a 6th sense, allows me to observe temperature differences that can't be seen otherwise. With a sharp eye and the latest technology Barber Inspection Services LLC will deliver the most comprehensive reports around so you can make decisions based on the most accurate condition of the home!
Detailed Reports Reports will be sent to you most often within 24 hours. With so much to do for a real estate transaction I don't want you waiting on me. I will promptly deliver the report with pictures and descriptions that are essential for negotiating repairs or better deals.
Fair Prices My pricing starting around $400 may be adjusted for many reasons. Inspections of condos or homes with small SF, the price may drop. Older homes or larger SF will add to the time I need to spend doing the visual inspection and report writing, therefore increasing the price.
Typical Inspection Depending on the age and size, usually a home inspection will several hours. Major components and systems of the home are evaluated from the foundation to the rooftop and most anything that is attached inside and out. Afterwards I will give you "the tour" with a verbal summary and answer any question you may have at that time.
Pre-lease or listing If you need the condition of a home to be evaluated before signing a lease, you will have documentation to prove the condition upon move out so you don't wind up paying for pre-existing conditions. Additionally you will know what your getting into if your moving into a lease property or preparing to sell a home.
Why should you add an IR scan to the inspection? Moisture Intrusion; HVAC or Building Envelope Air Leaks; Thermal Bridging; Gaps/Missing or Insufficient Insulation; Potential Electrical Issues; Plumbing and Roof Leaks.
Thermal Scan Pricing Adding this service to include thermal images in your home inspection is $100 for median sized homes. Not adding the service can cost you in energy loss over time and/or costly repairs from moisture damage that could have been caught early.
