I had the privilege of doing an End of Warranty/11th month inspection on this beautiful home this week. I also did the pre-purchase inspection for our client a year ago. As expected, new issues had cropped up over the past year and our client is now well-equipped with a detailed report (with pictures AND videos) to share with her builder to get these items repaired. Although the home was in great shape overall, the issues I did find were things that a builder should address before they become more serious. Getting your pre-purchase inspection and End of Warranty inspection are small investments that save you big in the short- AND long-term.

Our inspector, Rick Doherty, is diligently following all guidelines set by the state inspector association to ensure your safety (and his). Those guidelines include wearing disposable latex gloves and wiping down anything he touches with sanitizer wipes. It is also recommended at this time that real estate agents and buyers do not attend home inspections. If you do attend, we ask that you meet with the inspector outside of the home at a safe distance to go over his findings. We are committed to following best practices while still providing outstanding client service and meticulous inspections. Please call us at 919-914-0606 with any questions you may have or visit us online at www.dohertyhomeinspections.com. Thank you to our wonderful agents and clients who have been so supportive - we love this amazing community!
At a recent home inspection, I discovered that the drain pipe in the crawl space under the kitchen was leaking. Since we use modern, web-based reporting software, I was able to take a video of the leak (far more informative than just a photo) and include it right in the report. Just another reason why home buyers and realtors love us and our modern 2020 way of doing things. Having clear color photos AND videos really does make an impact.
