ESI Property Inspection services<
ESI Property Inspection is your one stop shop home inspection company, In addition to standard home inspection services, I also offer:
- Termite Inspection

Pre-purchace home inspection
A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. I will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets.
All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. I will prepare (and deliver the same day) your Home Inspection Report with easy-to-read details on:
- The condition of every major component from the roof to the basement
- Major and minor deficiencies
- Any major expenditures necessary
- What to watch out for
- Helpful home preservation tips
- Safety concerns
- And much more
New construction inspection
New construction inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent. It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the Builder depending on the Builder's policy. The inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before you final walk through with the Builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection a completed report will be distributed to you.
Pre-waranty expiration inspection
Warranty inspections are performed during the 11th month of your 1-year Builder Warranty. The inspection will be performed to verify that proper building techniques were used and that the various components of the home were properly installed. You will be presented with a completed report at the end of the inspection along with digital photos taken as needed for inaccessible areas.
Investor property inspection, including multi unit housing
Investor property inspections are performed prior to purchase as well as periodically during ownership. Pre-purchase inspections are performed to identify defects prior to taking ownership to negotiate repairs or price adjustments which reflect the condition of the property. Periodic inspections for properties currently in your portfolio would ensure the identification of needed repairs following say a long term tenant's departure. Long-term tenants sometimes neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy. Identifying those problems early is the key to profitable ownership.
Seller certified home program (pre-listing inspection)
Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.
Sound advice from the home Inspector expert<
A home Inspector does not obtain a working knowledge of every system in a home by taking a few courses, buying a franchise or reading a few books. It comes from field experience and training. Neither warranties nor insurance policies can take the place of knowledge and experience gained from a hands-on education and I have it.
- I have 15 years experience in the building industry. 10 of which were in home remodeling with an emphasis on historic properties. The other 5 on the commercial construction and development side as a project manager with over $400 million in management experience. I bring professional experience that is not often found in the typical home remodeler turned inspector.

What is Radon Gas?
- Radon is a natural gas that rises up thru the ground and is safely disbursed into the atmosphere when it is in an open environment. With the improvements in home construction where natural air movement is constricted in these areas that gas expels from the earth, it is concentrated and can become a serious health issue.
What is Mold?
- There are over 100 known genuses of mold with the majority of them not being dangerous.
- Termites, which play a positive role in recycling wood and plant material, become a problem when they consume structural lumber. Every year thousands of U.S. housing units require termite treatment. These pests cause serious damage to wooden structures and posts and can also attack stored food, household furniture, and books. Successful termite management requires special skills, including a working knowledge of building construction and an understanding of termite biology and identification. In most cases, it is advisable to hire a professional pest control company for the inspection and control problem.
What is Vermiculite Insulation?
- Vermiculite is a granular insulation that has been associated with asbestos. Not all vermiculite has asbestos, and, even if yours does, that does not necessarily mean it needs to be removed.
At ESI Property Inspection, integrity is an integral part of all I do. I act in your best interest. Always. From the first phone call to the final report, you can count on me to remain honest, professional, unbiased, credible and ethical.
- I will not offer to repair concerns I find during the home inspection.
- I will not try to sell you additional, costly and often unnecessary home-related products such as home warranties.
- I only refer local service providers whose services I would personally use myself; including real estate professionals, licensed pest inspectors, NEHA certified radon gas mitigators, mold & asbestos testing professionals, certified septic inspectors & EPA approved water testing labs.
- I do not offer special promotions to those who refer my services.
My inspection fees are dependent upon type, size and age of the property to be inspected. I take into consideration the amount of time necessary to provide a comprehensive inspection and deliver a meaningful inspection report.
