11 Month Warranty Inspection

Don't let your builder's one year warranty expire on your new home without having an 11th month warranty inspection done by Oregon Home Inspections. Many construction defects do not reveal themselves for a period of time until after the house has been lived in for some time. When you purchased your new home, your builder likely provided you with a one year warranty guaranteeing most aspects of your new home for one full year.  

 

Remember, no one will remind you that your warranty is going to expire, so it's your responsibility as the homeowner to contact the builder to inform them of items that need to be corrected.  Normally the builder's inspection is performed between the 8th and 11th month of the first year in your house. This is the perfect time to find any problems and have the builder correct them at no cost to you. Although most home owners have a list of items that need to be repaired, it's important to have a trained professional also look over your home and inspect those places that are often overlooked, such as the crawlspace, attic, and roof. Having a builder's warranty inspection done could save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Oregon Home Inspections can provide you with an independent evaluation of your home done by a professional home inspector. During this evaluation we examine your home from the foundation to the roof inspecting such areas of the home as:

 

- Grounds

- Structure

- Exterior surfaces

- Roof

- Windows & Doors

- Attic

- Interior Rooms

- Kitchen

- Bathroom

- Basement

- Crawlspace

- Plumbing

- Electrical

- Heating & Cooling System

 

 

Seller Inspections

A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller. The report can assist in your real estate disclosure and help protect you from future legal claims. Seller inspections (sometimes referred to as pre-listing inspections) are becoming more popular because they virtually eliminate all the pitfalls and hassles associated with waiting to do the home inspection until a buyer is found. In many ways, waiting to schedule the inspection until after a home goes under agreement is too late. Seller inspections are arranged and paid for by the seller, usually just before the home goes on the market. The inspector works for the seller and generates a report for the seller. The seller usually makes multiple copies of the report and shares them with potential buyers who tour the home as a marketing tool. The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, and prevent them from walking away. A seller inspection also lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations. When seller inspection reports are provided, deals are less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a last-minute problem.

 

Advantages to the Seller:

 

- The seller can schedule the inspection            at the seller's convenience.

 

- The report can help the seller substantiate      a higher asking price if problems don't            exist or have been corrected.

 

- The report might alert the seller to any              items of immediate concern, such as              plumbing leaks or active termite                        infestation.

 

-The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

 

- Gives the seller time to make repairs and       shop for competitive contractors.

 

- Permits the seller to attach repair                     estimates or paid invoices to the inspection   report.

 

- Removes over-inflated buyer-procured           estimates from the negotiation table.

 

- The report provides a third-party, unbiased   opinion to offer to potential buyers.

 

- The seller can have the inspector correct       any misstatements in the inspection report   before it is generated.

 

- The seller can assist the inspector during        the inspection, something normally not            done during a buyer's inspection.

 

- A seller inspection permits a clean home       inspection report to be used as a marketing   tool.

Buyer Inspections

It's important to keep things in perspective... Most homes have conditions that need attention. The question is, what and how serious are these conditions? We will answers these questions and explains their solutions so that you can make an informed decision before purchasing a home.

 

Inspections are performed with a systematic approach, breaking down the house as a whole into systems and components. Every inspection is accompanied by a inspection report that can be downloaded from our website, emailed or printed.

 

Our inspections are non-destructive examinations of the systems and structures of a home, from the roof to the foundation. We perform every inspection in accordance with Oregon Administrative Rules Division 8 Chapter 812. Inspections typically range from

 3-4 hours depending on the size and complexity of the home. During this time we will be evaluating important elements of the home, such as:


- Grounds

- Structure

- Exterior surfaces

- Roof

- Windows & Doors

- Attic

- Interior Rooms

- Kitchen

- Bathroom

- Basement

- Crawlspace

- Plumbing

- Electrical

- Heating & Cooling System

 

 

Oregon Home Inspections will reveal any important issues that may need attention and can suggest solutions and maintenance programs. The inspection will provide you with valuable information that will give you greater confidence in negotiations. A walk through at the end of the inspection with the prospective buyer is strongly encouraged. This allows us to present a much greater appreciation and understanding of the home’s condition and details found in the report.If the buyer cannot be present, a telephone appointment or meeting at our office can be made in order to discuss the report.

 

SOLAR SYSTEMS

If the home has a Solar system, we encourage including it in your inspection:  we are experts in solar water heating systems.

 

SOLAR SHADING ANALYSIS

If considering a solar system for the home, you should have a Solar Shading Analysis done to determine whether the house gets enough sunlight to qualify for Tax Credits and utility incentives. This option includes a separate report and sunchart for the site. We’ll also discuss if solar is a good fit for your house based on its construction.
