While I perform most of my inspections for potential buyers, I also provide inspections for sellers and homeowners.
This is a partial inspection, intended to provide homeowners with insight as to how the exterior of the home is performing.
Not everyone has the understanding of what to look for on the exterior of the home, or the ability to get to all of the areas. With a maintenance inspection, I focus on the exterior envelope of the home and assess grading, slope, vegetation which may adversely affect the home and watch for signs of animal intrusion.
No home is maintenance free! Extreme temperature swings through the seasons, rain, snow, ice and the power of the sun put your home under constant attack. Over the years these elements breakdown the very components that protect the home from water intrusion. Caulking around windows, doors and flashing, painted or stained wood, asphalt shingles all require ongoing maintenance / monitoring.
During my inspection, I will note all concerns I see and take pictures of these areas. Upon completion of my inspection, I will provide you with a report and recommendations.
Keen-Eye Home Inspections is not affiliated with any contractors. My inspection is solely to provide you with an honest report on the condition of your home.
I also offer unbiased, partial inspections on other components of the home. Please contact me for a quote by completing the "Maintenance Inspection" form shown on the right side of this web page.
