Home Inspection

LS Construction Services is an unbiased, third party inspector working for you.  We have the experience and expertise to assess the hundreds of components of the home.  Our thorough inspections help one better understand the current condition of the property and avoid any unwanted surprises.

Why?

The purchase or sale of your home is one of the most important and costly events ever to take place.  You want to know the current condition of the home and you know that every home is different.  Some homes may have only a few problems.  Other homes may have major problems which perhaps even the present owner isn’t aware of.  Your safety is our major concern.

Our professional Home Inspection reduces your risk of home ownership by providing you with an objective visual evaluation and written report on the physical structure and operating systems of a home.

What is a Home Inspection?

The Home Inspection Profession has been in existence for over three decades and has changed greatly over the years.  From brief verbal summaries supported by little or no documentation, the professional home inspection has evolved into a highly specialized reporting process.  Our Home Inspection is a thorough examination of the major components and systems of a home. Our written report provides a detailed analysis of the condition of these components and systems based upon guidelines from the American Society of Home Inspectors. It is thorough, concise, easy to understand, and delivered at the end of the inspection.

What is Inspected?

Based upon the ASHI Standards of Practice, there are nine key areas of a final report. They are; structural, exterior, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating, central air conditioning, interior, and insulation/ventilation.

Our inspections meet and exceed ASHI standards for each category, since we offer helpful tips on maintenance, and when appropriate, suggestions for remodeling alternatives. Systems and components are identified, the existing conditions are determined, and needed repairs or maintenance items are noted. You will be familiar with:

  • Structure and Foundation
  • Grading and Lot
  • House Exterior
  • Exterior Siding
  • Electrical and Plumbing
  • Roof, Gutters, and Drainage
  • House Interior
  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
  • Appliances and Floors
  • Walls and Ceilings
  • Windows and Doors
  • Fireplaces and Furnaces
  • Water Heaters

What to Expect?

Our home inspection can help you identify items which could possibly be major problems or safety hazards. We can help you identify and correct these and hundreds of other potential problems. Our home inspection can help you determine the differences between major, serious problems and minor, simple problems. Our home inspection also highlights the positive aspects of a home. In fact, many of the home inspector’s observations help dismiss a buyer’s anxieties and provide useful repair and maintenance suggestions.
