Our Inspection Services
H & I Home Inspections offers investigative home inspection services to Denver and the surrounding municipalities. Our goal is to help each customer broaden their knowledge of a home, revealing the condition of most readily accessible areas and carefully explaining what can be expected from a prospective purchase. H & I Home Inspections complies with ASHI’s excellent Standard of Practice.
General Property Inspection
This inspection is a thorough evaluation of a home’s visible and readily accessible components. Your inspector will take time to meticulously investigate the condition of most structures and installed mechanical systems, ensuring that you’re aware of any issues that may require repairs or extensive maintenance.
We inspect the following areas during inspection services:
✓ Structural Components
✓ Foundation & Crawl Space
✓ Driveways & Walkways
✓ Attached Garage
✓ Exterior (doors, windows, siding)
✓ Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
✓ Fireplace & Chimney
✓ Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
✓ Electrical System
✓ Plumbing System
✓ Heating & Cooling Systems
✓ Built-in Appliances
This inspection is for individuals and their families who are getting ready to sell a home. Your inspector will thoroughly evaluate the structure and the installed mechanical systems, searching for any defects that you should be aware of. This will enable you to make repairs at your own discretion and to otherwise inform prospective buyers of known issues so that the negotiating process can proceed without interruption when they schedule their own inspection.
New Construction Inspection
When construction is nearly completed on your new home, it’s good time to schedule an inspection with an unbiased third-party home inspector. Your inspector will arrive to the property to assess the condition of the interior and exterior structure as well as the installed mechanical systems. Your complete inspection report will give you the information you need to determine whether or not the builder needs to go back to correct any oversights—and will otherwise give you peace of mind knowing that your home is ready for the movers.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
This inspection is recommended for any new homeowner who has lived in their home for less than a year. The builder of your home likely protected your investment with a 1-year warranty, and it’s a good idea to have the property evaluated before the warranty expires. H & I Home Inspections will inspect most readily accessible areas, informing you of any defects that need to be addressed. Depending on the terms of your warranty, the builder may be obligated to assist with repair expenses.
Radon is a radioactive gas that has been known to cause serious lung problems in individuals who have been exposed over long periods of time. The gas forms underground and is sometimes able to rise through the surface and into the structure of a home. Radon is invisible and odorless, requiring specialized equipment to detect. H & I Home Inspections uses electronic radon tests that provide results within 48 hours.
This inspection is referred to local experts who will utilize a sewer scope to access and evaluate the inner workings of a home’s sewer system. The company that performs the inspection specializes in a providing a thorough analysis but does not service or repair sewer systems—that way, you know that there’s never a conflict of interest.
For the convenience of our customers, H & I Inspections will schedule and take payment for the Sewer Inspection.
“Ken went over everything with a fine tooth comb. He found a list of items in the house that required my attention. What I really enjoyed about it was that he stayed in his scope and only recommended what services I should look towards to remedy these areas, and did not mislead me on anything at all. Ken told me that after his inspections, many buyers may feel discouraged about issues he finds. I was honestly more than thrilled about what he found, as it made me feel more informed and confident going forward in the home buying process. It was also an unexpected courtesy on his end to discount the inspection for being a first responder. I recommend Ken highly if you are looking for a thorough and professional inspection.”
