You can count on WIN Home Inspection Colonial Heights to provide you with the best home inspection service and an unbiased, comprehensive report on the condition of the property. Our home inspectors are always reliable, professional, and knowledgeable.
A WIN full home inspection is a visual, non-invasive inspection of many different components of the home using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology. We bring care and compassion to each inspection, and a consultative approach focused on solutions.
During the inspection, your highly trained and certified home inspector will examine the home and major systems including site, foundation, roofing, exterior, interior, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC where accessible and safe to do so. A detailed, visual, and easy-to-read report complete with recommendations for maintenance and repair will be delivered within 24 hours (often the same day).
Many home sellers opt for a pre-listing inspection prior to placing their home on the market. Along with providing a professional and personalized evaluation of the home, WIN Home Inspectors deliver a detailed home inspection report that includes recommendations for repairs and next steps. This report allows home sellers to make repairs and address issues early, which can improve home value and even help the home sell faster!
More common in competitive real estate markets with multiple offers, this preliminary, information-only home inspection evaluates a home’s major systems and any potential issues, giving home buyers the information to make an informed decision on whether to place an offer on a property.
WIN Home Inspectors have the training and experience to provide essential home inspection services for homes of all types and ages. We’ve got you covered with personalized inspection for condominium, townhome, duplex, and manufactured home inspection. The thorough home inspection and easy-to-read report will cover the home and major systems, but some common areas controlled by the homeowner's association may fall outside of the inspection scope.
In a hot housing market, a verbal consultation can be a valuable tool for home buyers looking for a fast close. During a verbal consultation, a professional WIN Home Inspector will conduct an on-site consultation covering the major components of the home. This process will include a walk-through of the home with a verbal overview, tips for maintenance and repair, and a final debrief.
A post-close inspection is a valuable tool for home buyers who skipped the home inspection earlier in their real estate transaction. Homeowners who opt for a post-close inspection can take advantage of the comprehensive report and repair recommendations provided by their WIN Home Inspector to address and mitigate health and safety issues prior to moving in.
A Pre-Drywall Inspection identifies any issues in a new construction home before the drywall is installed. We thoroughly evaluate the framing of the structure as well as the rough in work completed for all the major systems in the home. If issues exist, a Pre-Drywall Inspection can help uncover them and provide suggestions on how to correct them before it’s too late or costly.
WIN's wood destroying organism/insect inspection can be performed at the same time as one of our other inspections, or on its own, so you'll know if termites, ants, dry rot, or another type of destructive organism has worked its way into your house, and your home inspector will provide you with advice on how to handle the problem.
Radon is an odorless, colorless, and naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause serious health issues over time. It is the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and is only detectable through testing. A trained WIN professional uses state-of-the-art equipment to check radon levels in the home, which can be mitigated once identified.
Hidden issues in sewer lines can cause flooding, mold, structural damage, and result in serious health problems. Highly trained WIN Home Inspectors use specialize, state-of-the-art equipment to check sewer lines for tree roots, cracks, and blockages, while providing recommendations for needed maintenance and repairs.
Water contaminants such as bacteria and nitrates can cause serious health issues and even structural damage to the home water system. WIN Home Inspection professionals partner with accredited laboratories to test the water quality in the home and protect home and health.
Poor indoor air quality can cause serious respiratory problems including asthma and other lung diseases. Air quality testing by WIN in partnership with accredited laboratories examines biological pollutants like mold, dander, pollen, dust mites, and bacteria in air to help you mitigate these health risks at your home.
Well Flow Testing (also known as 'well pump performance') by a trained WIN Home Inspector checks for needed repairs or adjustments to a home’s water flow. During the test, the inspector will determine the rate at which the home well is able to supply a steady flow of water and simulate normal water usage to help identify any issues.
Mold growth in the home can cause serious structural damage and pose a threat to human health. Trained WIN Home Inspectors check for hidden mold growth using specialized equipment to collect air samples, and can also provide mold surface sample testing for visible mold issues. We partner with accredited laboratories to provide professional and fast test results to home owners, buyers, and sellers.
Some potential issues in the home, such as missing insulation or overloaded electrical circuits are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared (IR) thermography allows WIN Home Inspectors to help identify otherwise hidden issues using innovative technology. Once identified, these issues can be proactively addressed, which can result in lower energy bills and a safer home.
