Specialty Inspections

close inspection

Ralph Modica goes the extra mile to provide more than most home inspectors can.

Thermal Imagining Inspection

I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. By evaluating the images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as missing or poor insulation in ceilings or around windows and flue leaks in the chimney.

Seller’s Pre-Listing Inspection

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller Inspection alerts you to problems with your home so that you can address them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11-th hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home-for-sale inspected now.

Construction/Draw-Down Inspection

Are you buying or building a brand new home? I will come out at final completion or for different phases of construction to make sure that your project is being executed according to your specs. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you close or make a payment to your contractor. I will also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor make a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a new home or construction inspection for you.

Renter’s Inspection

Let me inspect your rental unit upon your move-in to document its condition and any issues with it, so that you can avoid any disputes with your landlord upon your move-out.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspection

This inspection helps you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some require more frequent attention. I’ll identify any outstanding issues and educate you about what should be done to keep your home in top condition year-round.

Builder’s Warranty Inspection

Does your new home have a warranty on the materials and workmanship? I’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full inspection before the warranty expires so that you don’t have to go out-of-pocket for repairs of covered items.

Aging-in-Place Inspection

Do you have an elderly family member or one whose mobility is compromised? I, too, am a caregiver in my home. With compassion for the issues you face as a caregiver, I can inspect your home and recommend corrections and adaptations that will help improve their accessibility, maneuverability, safety, and independence.
