What we Offer
Home inspections are a vital component of the real estate process and should be performed in the most effective way possible. A home inspection is a buyer’s last chance to learn if there are any issues/deficiencies in the home before they make the decision to buy. In return, the home inspection is the seller’s last chance to learn of any issues in the home and address them before they proceed to sell. Once you’ve hit the tail end of the home buying or selling process in Huntington Beach and need a home inspection performed, look to none other than Sea to Sky Inspections. One of our highly qualified inspectors will conduct inspections on the home regarding sewer, mold, termites, and other pest infestations to establish if the home is ready to be sold or purchased. All inspection reports are sent to you the same day your inspection is performed so there is no delay in making important decisions about your sale or purchase. Sea to Sky Inspections is here to help all homeowners and home sellers in Huntington Beach locate any issues and make adjustments before embarking on that journey towards a new home.
Huntington Beach Home Inspection Expectations
The job of the home inspector is simple: inspect the home for issues and discrepancies. During your final home inspection, the inspector will focus on areas that concern buyers the most before doing a full sweep of the house. They will compile their findings into a report, which is given to you to help determine how you will proceed as either a buyer or a seller. Some areas of focus are mold, sewage, and electric systems. Mold and mildew are the biggest issues that scare buyers away; it’s hard to receive a good offer if mold is present in the home. Next leaks, water pressure, and the health of the septic system will be looked at. The electrical systems throughout the home will also be inspected to ensure that they are up to the current codes and are functioning correctly. These are the main components that a home inspector will look at before continuing to check out other areas of the home. Our inspectors at Sea to Sky Inspections will thoroughly inspect the entire home in order to provide you with the most detailed and reliable report after the inspection.
Because we like to be thorough at Sea to Sky, our inspections for Huntington Beach homes usually take between 2.5 to 3.5 hours. After checking the major areas of focus listed above, your inspector will precisely check out the home’s foundation, roof covering and shingles, and gas appliances. Our inspectors will show you every deficiency that they find so you can see the home exactly how they do in that exact moment. They provide explanations as to why certain areas are a concern. We use the most recent technologies like thermal imaging cameras and moisture detectors to locate any moisture intrusion problems, overheating in the electrical systems, and any missing insulation. Our main inspections include sewer, mold, termite, and pest control.
Our sewer inspections ensure that no sewer pipes have been infiltrated by anything that can cause cracks, leaks, and failing joints. Pooling water, cracks, and bows warn that something has infiltrated your sewer line’s drainage. For our mold inspections, our technologies provide us with the capabilities to perform moisture testing, take mold samples, and find any mold that may be hiding in areas like under floorboards and behind paint. If we find any mold, we will test the samples in order to come up with an efficient way to get rid of it before it spreads or does anything damaging to your home. We also look for termites if you are selling or refinancing a home. After an initial inspection, if we find termites we will eliminate them then repair any damages they may have done to your home thanks to our in house carpenters and treatment specialists. Once we are sure your home is termite free, we provide clearances you can present to any future buyer. Lastly, we conduct pest inspections - specifically for rats and mice - to establish where they might be entering your home and how to keep them from getting in. After we’ve executed a treatment that will help you remain rodent free, we clean up their mess and repair any sort of damage they might have caused. We conduct all of these inspections at one time and include our findings in one report to make the home inspection process as easy for you as we can. Our thorough home inspections bring you one step closer to selling or buying.
Why is a Huntington Beach Home Inspection Important?
Home inspections are important before buying or selling a home for a couple of reasons. For a seller, a home inspection provides a list of issues that need to be addressed in order to receive the offer they have set for the home. If you decide that you do not need to fix the issues provided by the home inspection report then there is a good chance you will have to negotiate your price for the home. For the buyer, the home inspection also provides you with a list of issues found in the home. If the issues are fixed, great you can move forward with closing. If the seller will not fix the issues, then you have the chance to decide whether to negotiate the price for the home with the issues and move forward with a purchase, or if you would like to opt out from the home all together and look for something else. The severity of the issues presented by the home inspection report can be a deal breaker for some real estate transactions. This is why it is important for us at Sea to Sky Inspections to provide you with a detailed home inspection report as soon as possible. That way it can help you make these life-changing real estate decisions. The inspection can also be beneficial after you’ve closed on a house. The report can tell you what sort of repairs and replacements you may need in the future. The report also informs you of the most vulnerable systems in the home allowing you to purchase warranties and protection for those systems before anything drastic happens. A well performed home inspection and a detailed home inspection report is very important when it comes to selling or purchasing a home.
