From Roof to Foundation
A comprehensive home inspection embodies a full visual home report. The exterior evaluation includes the siding, foundation, sidewalks, drainage, roofing, mechanical systems, windows, and decks. The interior includes testing appliances, wall inspections, windows, doors, plumbing fixtures, electrical outlets and panel, mechanical, fireplace, attic, and garage.
I visual examine and test systems to ensure all is functioning as expected and safe. During our time at the home, if there is a concern raised beyond my expertise you then bring in a specialist to further examine the area. Within 1 day of your completed inspection, you will receive a thorough report covering all findings along with a list of immediate fixes, recommended fixes, or a combination of both.
Home inspections do not include oil tank sweeps, sewer pipe scan, or chimney Level II.
We can provide a contractors list when we schedule an inspection.
Have you moved in and settled into your home for a year or two? Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed with all the maintenance that is required to keep your home in tip-top condition.
Give me a call and schedule a routine in-home maintenance checkup. I will check all systems are functioning to their ability and give you some tips on how to keep it that way. You may not be aware of all you can be doing to help your home!

The State of New Jersey DEPE requires that a licensed Radon Measurement Technician perform any radon-screening test conducted for the sale of real estate. Immaculate Home Inspection’s inspector is certainly qualified. Testing devices, whether passive activated charcoal canister test or active other active means, must be placed and removed by a licensed radon measurement technician. Anyone who touches the canister for any reason jeopardizes the test and renders the result invalid. We use R.A Data, Flanders NJ, as our state licensed laboratory.
In the United States, subterranean termite infestation amounts to billions of dollars in damage each year.

Also, when purchasing a home most mortgage companies require a Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) inspection and a written report indicating any termite activity or damage.
