Inspection Services Offered:
Allied’s inspectors perform comprehensive inspections involving a home’s major structural and mechanical systems for homeowners and prospective buyers.
The items examined in a typical home inspection include the plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning systems, foundation, roof, exterior and
interior structures and surfaces, and built-in appliances. The visual inspection culminates in a set of comprehensive, computer generated reports describing
the condition of the items and systems inspected.
We extend our professional service well beyond the delivery of your report by including Extended Advice with every inspection. With Extended Advice, you get
12 months of expert assistance. Included in this service are three unique programs – Customized Home Maintenance, Project Planning and Guidance and Expert Advice direct from an Allied inspector.
90 Day Guarantee
When you have an Allied property inspection you get peace of mind beyond the inspection. Every property inspection is protected by our 90 Day Inspection Guarantee* from the date of the inspection.
The guarantee is provided to Allied home-buyer clients of owner occupied one and two family re-sale houses and condominiums (excluding common elements) and applies to the listed and specified elements which were found to be satisfactory, with no “Action” or “Consideration” items noted by the inspector.
We are so confident in our training and property inspection techniques that we offer you this written guarantee on the following items:
To control your risk, you need to look beneath the surface of your building investments, evaluate the property and develop a plan to protect your assets. Our trained professionals employ a broad spectrum of commercial and multi-family inspection experience. Because our inspectors live in the cities we serve, you won’t find better responsiveness or market insight.
No surprises, no guesswork, just experience working to protect your investment.
Property Condition Assessments
A comprehensive inspection for small to mid-sized commercial properties, multi-family units, warehouses, and retail outlets.
A thorough site examination and detailed report which identifies the useful life and cost estimates of major common area expenditures — used by condominiums, homeowners’ association, office parks, churches, and apartment complexes.
An examination of a specific component or system which requires special assessment by a qualified expert – such as engineering consults for design, foundations, roofs, or structure.
When it comes to having a safe and healthy home, sometimes it’s the things you can’t see that are the most concerning. Allied’s Environmental Services can help
provide additional peace of mind.
For your current home or a pending real estate transaction, we’re here to help. Available services may vary by market and are specially priced when bundled with your home inspection or home warranty.
Radon is an odorless gas naturally occurring in the soil, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer — behind smoking. Allied adheres to strict protocols
and standards for testing, which can usually be combined with a home inspection.
Wood Destroying Insects
Termites and other wood destroying organisms cost more than $5 billion a year in treatment and damage throughout the United States. In most cases a full WDI
report can be obtained as part of our Allied Home Inspection.
Mold has become a high profile issue over the past few years as homeowners and insurance companies wrangle over the veracity of health issues and the
responsibility of cleaning up mold problems.
About Your Home Inspection
In order to ensure that your home inspection goes smoothly, we recommend the following:
All utilities must be turned on prior to the start of the inspection (electric, water, and gas). Property must be de-winterized.
All pilot lights should be lit.
Storage and clutter should be moved to allow access into all areas, especially around heating equipment, the water heater and access to the attic.
Confirm with the seller and real estate agents to allow access to the property.
Bring any questions or concerns that you may have about the house to discuss with your home inspector.
We will arrive on-time ready to inspect your home. We will take all notes and photographs necessary and follow-up with a detailed report that documents the condition of the property. We encourage you to come along during the inspection and to ask any questions you may have about the home.
