Our clients include home buyers, home sellers, real estate investors to affordable housing, and homeowners associations.

We have the code certifications to inspect new construction and offer construction phase inspections: footing/foundation; framing/pre-drywall; and final completion.  We also perform first year warranty inspections on new construction.

Our inspection reports are written in a format that is easy to read and understand.  Click here to see sample reports. We limit the use of technical jargon, filler, and "boilerplate" information.  Our reports include a categorized, narrative summary, and photographs of the conditions found.  Where warranted, our reports include references to building codes, manufacturer's instructions, and recognized industry standards.

There are a great many differences between home inspectors: overall experience,; training; and the quality of service they might offer you.  Most important is the time they are willing to spend performing your home inspection.

There is no shortcut to a thorough home inspection. Do not allow yourself to be tricked by gadgets, gimmicks, and giveaways!  We posses the knowledge, experience, and dedication to perform the best possible home inspection for you!

Please call us at 404.213.1382 to schedule your Common cents inspection!
