Pre-Purchase Home Inspection
An essential part of the real estate transaction. The inspector understands residential construction and offers consumers an expert opinion regarding the condition of a home's major systems and components before the purchase is made.
New Home Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)
As a purchaser of a newly built home, and much like a pre-purchase inspection, this is the opportunity to perform an inspection of the home just prior to closing. As a purchaser, the PDI represents your opportunity to view your home in its completed state.
Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show clients things about their homes or buildings that can't be revealed using conventional inspection methods.
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
A pre-listing home inspection is a home inspection that is performed by the current owner before they list their property. The purpose is to uncover any potential issues with the home, so that they can be rectified before the sale.
"My wife and I wouldn't have been able to buy our first home without Kevin Kennedy. That's no exaggeration. His attention to detail, his honest answers to every question and his encyclopedic knowledge of all things house related were some of the only things that put us at ease about buying a hundred year old home. We love where we live, and Kevin was and is a huge part of that."
Andrew & Emma
"He is a very personable and knowledgable guy. Not only was the
inspection completed well, but he provided insight throughout each step so we understood what the issue was, and also what was needed to fix it. I would recommend his services to anyone."
Rich & Kate
"Kevin is master of home construction and design.
He's got an amazing eye for spotting even the most subtle of issues ranging from unsafe to sub-optimal.
His expert knowledge will guide you to your own decisions as to must-dos versus nice-to-haves.
Hard to imagine anyone more professional than Kevin.
It is obvious Kevin loves his job from the energy he brings to every inspection."
