Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. We're here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.

We'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

Hire a Home Inspector Who Has Your Best Interests in Mind

You probably won't get to meet your home inspector before hiring them, so it's important to find someone who is dependable, trustworthy, and properly certified. Make sure you're hiring a home inspector who has your best interests in mind.

We've been certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you're armed with the best information possible.

We also encourage our clients to be present for the inspection, where we'll educate and familiarize you with your new home.

Happy Customers

For several years there has been an organic substance in our home that my husband and daughter were highly allergic to. We have had three remediation companies come out, but they were unable to find the source. Preventive Inspections came out with a Thermal (Infrared) Imaging tool and location several places where high levels of moisture were behind the wall, along with several leaks in our roof. They went the extra mile and checked every nook and cranny of our home. Matt and Laura were professional and great to work with, and reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to use their services again. I would rate them as an A+ company!

We are so glad we hired Preventative Inspections for our one year new construction home inspection. Matt and Laura did a phenomenal job! Our builder even took notice of how detailed the report was and the turn around time was fast too. They certainly do not cut corners! Matt and Laura were knowledgeable and professional. They made the whole process really simple. Hire them, you will be so glad you did!

When I began inquiring about a home inspection, Matthew was very quick to respond to my emails and answered all my questions. He and Laura were so friendly and professional during the inspection. They verbalized all of their findings and also provided an extremely easy-to-follow report that included pictures. They were so thorough and clearly took their time examining the house. We are so thankful we chose this company to do our inspection and feel it was worth every penny!

Preventive Inspections came out to do the inspection of the home I am in the process of purchasing and did a wonderful job! They were EXTREMELY thorough, efficient, professional, and friendly as well. They also explained a lot of what they did and found to me during the process and answered my questions, as I am a first time home buyer, which made the inspection experience extremely less stress inducing. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a home inspection!

Matthew performed a home inspection for us a few weeks past and did an outstanding job. He was very professional and extremely thorough. The report he provided was detailed and easy to understand and included precise images of concerns he found. He also took the time to discuss his findings and offered great recommendations of items we needed to address. I highly recommend Preventive Inspections.
