Whats Included in a Home Inspection?
Home Inspections Starting at $299
At AVES Home Inspections we value experience, ability, and thoroughness. We believe a good inspector should examine certain components of the home and then produce a high quality report covering his or her findings. The typical inspection lasts two to three hours and the home buyer should be present for the inspection to get a firsthand explanation of the inspector's findings and, if necessary, ask questions. Also, any problems the inspector uncovers will make more sense if you see them in person instead of relying solely on the snapshot photos in the report.
A home inspection is an examination of the condition of a real estate property. A qualified home inspector assesses the condition of a property, including its Structural Systems, Electrical Systems, Heating Venting and AC Systems, Plumbing Systems, Appliances and other Optional Systems.

Home inspector will visually assess the condition of plumbing supply, distribution systems and fixtures, drain, wastes, and vents, water heating equipment and hydro-massage therapy equipment.
Items inspected include dishwashers, food waste disposers, range hood and exhaust systems, ranges, cooktops, and ovens, microwave ovens, mechanical exhaust vents and bathroom heaters, garage door operators, and dryer exhaust systems.

Complimentary Wood Destroying Organism Report
In an effort to provide the best possible service, a Wood Destroying Organism Inspection is included with the home inspection at no additional cost. If wood destroying organisms are observed, we will recommend that a state licensed pesticide applicator further evaluate the home for possible wood-destroying organism infestation and provide control if deemed necessary.
This report is not a substitute for a lender required termite inspection. If your lender requires a termite inspection, we can help arrange a termite inspection with a state licensed pesticide management professional in your area.
Complimentary Thermal Imaging
Minimum TREC standards require only a visual inspection of the deficiencies observed in a home. At AVES Home Inspection PLLC, all visual signs of moisture penetration or air loss will be further analyzed with a thermal imaging camera and moisture meter at no additional cost to the customer. This additional step helps the inspector support visual observations with concrete supporting evidence using advanced thermal imaging technology.
Complimentary Foundation Elevation Plot
One of the biggest concern’s clients have regarding a home purchase is whether the foundation is supporting the building. Signs of a bad foundation include foundation cracks, wall or floor cracks, other types of fractures, foundation settling or sinking, foundation upheaval, doors that stick, doors that don’t open or close properly, gaps around window frames or exterior doors and sagging or uneven floors. If during the visual inspection there are significant signs of foundation damage, a foundation elevation plot using a zip level pro will be performed at no additional cost to the customer. The detailed measurements provide concrete evidence that help determine whether the foundation needs further evaluation by a structural engineer.
