MAIN INSPECTION SERVICES

Residential Home Inspection Services

When it comes to making sure that you and your family have a safe, sturdy, and reliable home for years to come, the inspectors at SPS Inspections leave nothing to the imagination. Our residential home inspections are so comprehensive, we only allow our inspectors to perform one home inspection a day so that proper attention can be given to the inspection as well as the report. Although we are not residential code inspectors, our inspectors do utilize building codes in their evaluation of the property and reportings.

Mold Testing and Inspection

If you live in the Pacific Northwest and are looking for mold testing near me or mold inspection near me, you have come to the right place! SPS Inspections provides Western Washington with quick and accurate mold inspecting and testing services!

Manufactured Foundation Certification

For anyone refinancing a manufactured home or taking out any kind of funding, VA loans, or FHA loans for example, for a manufactured home, you will need to have a site inspection for professional engineering certifications of the permanent foundation systems to ensure the foundation meets FHA guidelines and building code.

Drone Inspection Services

As of August, 2020, Jarrett Ferris and SPS Inspections received certification and licensing to commercially fly a drone, and will be providing aerial photography and drone inspection services going forward! Contact us today to learn more.

Environmental Testing

Lead, asbestos, water quality – SPS Inspections provides inspection, sampling, and laboratory testing of all three of these potential environmental hazards. If your home was built before the 1980s, the possibility of lead existing in the paint exists. For homes built before 1989, the possibility exists that building materials with asbestos in them are present in your home. For water quality, identification of any coliforms, or coliform bacteria, especially e. coli.

3-Phase & New Construction Inspection

when you shell out the extra cash to buy new construction; you want that house to be as perfect and as “out-of-the-box” brand new as your perception of it. When you hire SPS Inspections to inspect your new home construction, we accomplish this in three phases throughout the build. This means that your new home construction will be inspected three times while it is being built

Whether you have bought a hundred houses or are a first time home buyer, we will work with you to make sure you get the home inspection services you need – even your real estate agent will love us! Home loans or cash purchase, it doesn’t matter to us how you are buying the home either, so give us a call today to schedule your next home inspection with SPS Inspections!

The time it takes to finish an inspection report is also largely dependent on the type of home being inspected. A smaller home will likely take less time than a larger home, and a house with more defects and problems is likely to take longer than one without as many defects or issues.

How comprehensive the inspector also plays a part in determining the time it takes to finish the inspection report – Does your inspector examine every element of the electrical system, or only a majority, etc.

With SPS Inspections, your home inspection report will be done and delivered within 48 hours from the inspection. If there is any reason you need to get the report sooner, please just let us know and we will always do what we can to work with our clients.

With every comprehensive residential home inspection, SPS Inspections will provide you with your own copy of our custom, full color, 96 page Home Maintenance Manual!

Client
SPS Inspections was wonderfully helpful in inspecting our new home for purchase. Jarrett was quick to fit us in and even worked around our schedule. His inspection was thorough and easy for us to understand. We haven’t found any issues with our home since moving in last July. We would recommend SPS Inspections to anyone!

Home Inspector Frequently Asked Questions

YES!

At SPS Inspections, all of our professional home inspection services are performed by a licensed home inspector. In Washington State, all inspection companies or certified home inspectors are required to be licensed to perform a professional home inspection in the state of Washington.

YES!

When you hire SPS Inspections to perform your home inspection services, have some peace of mind knowing that any home inspection is performed by an InterNACHI certified professional home inspector. The American Society of Home Inspectors is another national home inspection certifying organization in the home inspection industry, but certifying with more than one organization is not needed, and we truly believe InterNACHI to provide superior support and services to their member inspectors!

At this time, SPS Inspections does not carry a pest inspection license and as such we are unable to make observations or perform any visual examinations specifically for termites, nor are we able to identify termites or any other specific type of pest in the written report.

We can, however, speak generally to “wood destroying organisms” when pest-related damage is found in the home. With this information, depending on the current condition of the home and the affected structural components, you can have a pest professional come out to perform repairs to the damage and remediate any remaining infestation.

The systems or components of the home that are inspected by us during any given inspection depend largely on the types of homes that are being inspected, as well as the condition of the property.

For example, if the physical structure of the roof at the time of the inspection seems to suffer from safety issues, then chances are the roof will be inspected either from a ladder or from the ground rather than having the inspector walk the roof if it is in an unsafe condition.

The time it takes to finish an inspection report is also largely dependent on the type of home being inspected. A smaller home will likely take less time than a larger home, and a house with more defects and problems is likely to take longer than one without as many defects or issues.

How comprehensive the inspector also plays a part in determining the time it takes to finish the inspection report – Does your inspector examine every element of the electrical system, or only a majority, etc.

With SPS Inspections, your home inspection report will be done and delivered within 48 hours from the inspection. If there is any reason you need to get the report sooner, please just let us know and we will always do what we can to work with our clients.

Yes, residential septic tanks are required to be inspected at certain times. Essentially, there are just two instances in which the state or local public health authority requires a septic tank inspection.

The first instance is every one to three years, but no more than every three years to have your septic tank professionally inspected.

The second is anytime a property changes hands, i.e. anytime a house with a septic tank is purchased or sold, it is required to have that septic tank inspected by a licensed and certified professional.

At this time, SPS Inspections does not perform inspections on septic systems, nor do we offer any other ancillary septic services for homeowners, buyers, sellers, or otherwise. If we do start offering septic tank inspection services, we will update our services as soon as possible, so make sure to check back if you are in need of septic services!

Radon is an invisible gas that is harmful to people and enters a home through its basement or crawl spaces.

For now, SPS Inspections does not offer radon testing or radon inspection services. This is possibly something we will offer in the future, but not right now.

If you believe radon to currently be a problem in your home, we have an excellent article with information and tips on choosing from the various radon mitigation systems available and the remediation of radon from your home.

If you are buying a house or are the owner of a house associated with a home sale, SPS Inspections offers services that examine every square foot of the home. The following is an example of the different aspects of a home that are covered during an inspection with SPS Inspections:

  • Plumbing,
  • Appliances,
  • Furnace/ HVAC,
  • Attic,
  • Insulation,
  • Floors and Ceilings,
  • Fireplace and Chimney,
  • Water Heater,
  • Exterior Building Envelope,
  • Roof,
  • Gutters, and
  • So Much More!

Keep in mind, this is by no means an exhaustive list, and every home is at least a little bit different from the last making every inspection a new experience. If you are in need of additional inspections, or ancillary inspection services, speak with your inspector as we do offer a myriad of ancillary services to our clients!
