Whether you are a home buyer, seller, or homeowner, there is a home inspection service for you! No matter what stage you are in regarding home ownership, it is important to understand how the house works! Maintaining your investment is key. Knowing that the systems of the home are working properly can ensure that you remain safe and sound, no matter if your selling, buying, or staying where you are. Rankin Home Inspections will help you make an informed decision, while giving you the information needed to maintain the property.
Home Buyers Inspection
Pre-Purchase inspections, also known as the buyers inspection help to ensure that the home of your dreams is in the condition you expect. Buying a home is the biggest purchase most of us will make in our lifetime. Having knowledge of the property condition before purchase allows for an informed buying decision and reduces the risk of major costly issues.
Purchasing a home can be a stressful process and more so if the home has issues that were not evident before buying. A pre-purchase inspection gives the buyer comfort in knowing the condition and operation of the home.
Home Sellers Inspection
Home inspections are becoming a necessity for home buyers. Pre-Listing inspections help the home seller gain an advantage in the selling process. Sellers who have knowledge of any deficiencies will have the ability to correct problems before the home buyer finds them. In doing so the seller may increase the value of the property and reduce the time on the market.
Home Maintenance Inspection
There is very little in a home that is maintenance free. A maintenance inspection provides a homeowner with the necessary information needed to maintain and improve the value of the home. Maintenance inspections can help a home owner prioritize repair needs, extend the life of many components in the home and reduce the risk of major repairs in the future. Inspections are generally recommended every 3 to 5 years to identify conditions so corrective action can be taken.

What can a thermal imaging inspection find in your home?

Moisture Intrusion

Exterior water leakage can cause serious problems in your home, not only to interior finishes but the structure as well!  Thermal imaging home inspections can help to see what the human eye cannot, revealing wet and potential problem areas that may otherwise go undetected.

Leaking Plumbing Pipes
Pipes can leak for quite sometime before the problem is noticed. Not all pipe leaks are major and show up right away. Thermal imaging home inspections can help to reveal leaking pipes and plumbing. Correcting the problem before it causes any major damage to structure or finishes will not only save money in the long run but will also ensure that the structure of your home stays intact.
Points of Heat Loss
A thermal imaging home inspection can save you money by identifying areas of the home that are missing insulation and losing heat helping to reduce utility bills. Missing insulation in walls can cause a loss of heat or cool air during heating and cooling seasons causing your furnace or air-conditioner to work that much harder to keep up with demand.  Knowing if and where these problems exist can greatly help in keeping more money in your pocket!
Over Heating Electrical
Overheating electrical components are dangerous!  Posing a serious risk to the safety of your family and home,  a thermal imaging home inspection can help to identify problem areas before they turn into a life safety situation. Having the knowledge of this potentially dangerous situation allows for the problem to be fixed before that problem becomes an emergency!
