Our Inspection Services

General Inspection: Structural & Mechanical

The purpose of a home inspection is to provide you with an accurate picture of the visible aspects of your home at the time of the inspection.

For Van Horn Home Inspection Services, it’s important to set honest and realistic expectations for our clients. A home inspection takes 2-3 hours and we report on issues observed upon visual examination of your property. We will tell you how old your furnace(s), air conditioner(s), and water heater(s) are so you can be prepared for the major cost of replacing those components.

We promise to share our findings in a truthful manner and will adhere to ASHI’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice at every inspection.

We’ll review these aspects of your home when visible and safely accessible:

Roof & Gutters
Basement, Foundation, Crawlspace & Structure
HVAC – Heating & Cooling Systems
Plumbing System
Electrical System
Attic, Insulation & Ventilation
Doors, Windows & Interior
Built-In Kitchen Appliances

At the end of your inspection, we invite you to walk through the property with us so we can show you what we discovered. This is a valuable opportunity to learn about your potential new home, and we consider this review an important part of the inspection process.

We focus on solutions rather than problems and help you understand what are major and minor issues. Our goal is to give you knowledge, confidence, and support as we partner with you on your home inspection.

Additional Services

Final Inspections on New Construction

Hire Van Horn Home Inspection Services to inspect your newly built home before the drywall is installed and before your final walk-through with the builder. Pre-drywall is a critical point in the building process because it allows us to observe completed work before the components are hidden behind your walls. Our final inspection before your walk-through with the builder is an opportunity to get an unbiased report on any areas of concern regarding your new construction.


Pre-Listing Inspections

If you’re a homeowner considering selling your home, we recommend having a Pre-Listing Inspection before putting your home on the market. When your home is pre-inspected, you have the chance to fix any items discovered at your inspection so you can list your home in the best shape possible. A Pre-Listing Inspection often speeds up and simplifies the sale of your home!

1 Year Warranty Inspection

Most all newly built homes come with a 1 Year Builder’s Warranty that covers the major systems and components of your home. Hire us in the 11th month to conduct a full home inspection before your warranty expires! We will give you a detailed report showing any areas of concern you should address with your builder while your home is still under warranty.

Review of Repair/Re-Inspections

Are you a potential homebuyer who has asked the seller to make repairs based on a previous inspection? Hire Van Horn Home Inspection Services to re-inspect your property and confirm that the requested repairs were completed before closing on the home.

Home Maintenance

As your largest investment, it’s important to schedule Home Maintenance Inspections to keep you informed on the condition of your property. A maintenance inspection allows you to plan for costly repairs and helps you prioritize a to-do list in order to keep your home operating efficiently.

Should you have any other inspection needs not shown here, please ask us for a referral! We’ll gladly recommend local experts who specialize in those services.

Your Inspection Report

We use HomeGauge Software to generate the best home inspection reports in the industry. You’ll receive a detailed report showing notes and high-resolution images from our inspection of your home. You can securely access your report online using your mobile phone, tablet, laptop,  or desktop computer.

We are always available to answer your questions and we encourage you to call us as needed, now and in the future. We want you to have the confidence and peace of mind to enjoy your new home, and we are here to support you through the process.
