Pre Listing Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

If you are preparing to put your property on the market, call Reliable to perform a Pre-Listing Inspection even before you list it. We’ll provide a detailed report about the home’s condition, you have a chance to make any repairs—and you’ll sleep better. Few but some buyers are looking for a reason to lower a price– Isn’t it better to have that relaxed feeling that you know what is really going on and what is not?

11 Month Warranty

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Many of you are buying new homes — hundreds are built in Naples every year — and if you’re going to invest in one, it’s a good idea to schedule this inspection before you’ve owned the home for a full year. Most builders extend a 1-year warranty addressing the condition of a home’s construction, and this inspection will check the home for existing issues that may be covered under the warranty agreement—potentially saving you a whole lot of money! Check your paperwork from your builder or developer to better understand your rights under the warranty.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction Inspection

When this inspection service is performed before the builder’s final walkthrough of new construction, you’ll be able to ensure that your home is safe and structurally sound before you move in. We’ll comprehensively evaluate the property, and if we find any defects, you’ll be able to take them up with the builder so that repairs can be made as soon as possible.

Energy Audit Home Inspection

Energy Audits

This is an important inspection service to schedule for both current homeowners and prospective buyers. We’ll use aerial drone video and photography in combination with infrared thermography to conduct a full energy analysis of the home. This allows us to pinpoint areas where energy is escaping from the home so that you have a clear idea of what changes will need to be made in order to maximize the home’s energy efficiency.

4 Point Inspection

4 Point Inspection

This inspection service will give you the information you need to determine whether or not your prospective home will qualify for an insurance policy. Home insurers are very specific about what they need to see from a home before a policy is offered, and more often than not, that means that four primary areas of home need to be in sound condition: the roofing system, HVAC system, electrical system, and plumbing system.

Re Inspection

Re-Inspections

Re-Inspections should be scheduled any time that our original property inspection results in the discovery of a defective home component. If the seller agrees to have the component in question repaired before final negotiations resume, we’ll be happy to return to the property to ensure that the repairs have been performed well and that no additional damage was caused during the process.

Home Maintenance Inspection

Home Maintenance Inspection

This inspection service is a fantastic way for homeowners to keep up with routine maintenance on their home, preserving the home’s value and ensuring that safety standards continue to be met. We’ll thoroughly evaluate the property, providing a full report of our findings that will instruct you about maintenance issues you’ll want to address now or in the near future.

Wind Mitigation Inspection

Wind Mitigation Inspection

This inspection service not only ensures that your prospective home is adequately protected from storm damage, but it can also clue you in to certain insurance credits that the home may qualify for through the state of Florida. We’ll carefully look over the property for any existing wind mitigation features, making additional recommendations based on our findings

WDO Termite Inspection

WDO/Termite Inspection

Termites and other wood-destroying organisms can be a major headache for new homeowners who end up responsible for the repair costs of pre-existing issues. To prevent that from happening to you, you should schedule this inspection service before going through with an investment to ensure that your prospective home isn’t affected by termite damage.

Thermal Imaging Camera

Thermography Heat & Water Issue Analysis

This inspection service will utilize infrared thermography to check for issues such as plumbing leaks inside a home and exterior moisture intrusion. We’ll also do a basic scan to look for electrical hotspots and other energy issues that you should be aware of.

Drone Roof Inspection

Roof Inspections

For this inspection service, we’ll focus on identifying potential issues with a property’s roofing system. An aerial drone will be used along with a 360-degree camera to take detailed photographs and video of the roofing system that will allow us to clearly see where and why a problem may be occurring.
