INSPECTION SERVICES OFFERED in Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh and Surrounding Areas
Home inspection fees are based on square footage, age of the home, and foundation type (crawl, slab, basement). Existing/older homes (i.e, 10+ years) and/or larger homes take more time to inspect and report and therefore cost more. To view our calendar and to obtain an immediate estimate, click the SCHEDULE NOW button above and type in your home’s information including foundation type.
Pre-Purchase Residential Inspections
We make sure you understand the major systems of the house you’re about to call home, including townhouses and condos. In addition, our pictures AND videos included in every report serve as very powerful communication tools when negotiating with sellers and their agents.
Pre-Listing Residential Inspections
If you are getting ready to sell your home and would like to have its condition assessed beforehand so you know what to address, Doherty Home Inspections is here to help.
Our maintenance inspections include all the items in a regular inspection, including roof, plumbing, electrical, foundation, attic, and building structure assessment. Plus we pay particular attention to any concerns you may have noted while living in the home.
New Construction Inspections
A newly constructed home doesn’t mean there won’t be any concerns or issues. You deserve to move into a house where every accessible outlet, window, and faucet (among a thousand other items) is checked and in good working order. This exceeds the NC Standards of Practice (and we do it for all inspections) which means it takes us a little longer to inspect, but trust us – you don’t want the fastest inspector, you want the most thorough.
End of Warranty (11th Month) Inspections
Most builders offer a one year warranty on a new home and during the 11th month is when you should take full advantage of this warranty by discovering any issues that have developed during the year. We perform a full home inspection so you’ll have all the information you’ll need before your warranty expires.
