What We Offer
We Take Your Home Investment Seriously
Buying a home is a big decision. Having a thorough and accurate home inspection report allows you to make a well-educated decision and provides you with more negotiating power. At Bennett Home Inspections, we evaluate the various aspects and systems of the home. When we discover issues, we clearly describe the situation and recommend a solution.
Want to make sure the contractor or the seller has done what they promised? Bennett Home Inspections will re-inspect homes to verify that items have been corrected as specified by your contingency agreement. You will receive a second inspection report with updates on the corrected issues. Talk to us today to order a re-inspection.
Did you know homeowners are responsible for maintaining the sewer lines that connect their homes to the city sewer system? Get a professional opinion on the state of your sewer line or drain line by a certified sewer scope inspector. It is crucial because it helps you avoid any large plumbing bill once you move in. Getting a sewer scope inspection with us will provide peace of mind!
Water is life! It’s scary to think that your private well water sources and city water can be tainted. Even plumbing distribution and fixtures inside a home can affect water quality. At Bennett Home Inspection, we take you and your family’s health safety seriously. It’s important to know for sure if your water has been contaminated. Talk to us today and get started with water quality testing!
Pest and Dryrot
We detect wood destroying organisms (WDOs) and the conditions where they thrive. We discover if insects are inhabiting or destroying the structure. We identify moisture-related problems that lead to mold, fungi, and wet rot. We are licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture as a structural pest inspection firm. Our inspectors are individually licensed as structural pest inspectors.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is the second-leading cause of lung cancer. It’s a dangerous health hazard but not hard to test for and mitigate. Depending on where you live in Oregon & Washington, Radon testing might be smart and necessary. Let’s make sure your Radon exposure doesn’t exceed the EPA’s safety recommendation.
Who WE serve
Let Us Help With Your Home Inspections
Home Inspections for Buyers
A quality home inspection is a tool to help make your decision. Understanding the true condition of the home you are considering is an important part of your process. We give you an accurate, trustworthy, and solid inspection. We give facts and insight into the home, which will help make your decision. When issues are discovered, we clearly describe the situation and recommend a solution. You are encouraged to accompany us through the entire inspection.
Pre-listing Home Inspections for Sellers
See your home through a buyer’s eyes. Bennett Home Inspections gives you an unbiased report on your home. Our pre-listing inspection alerts you before unknown or ignored defects become a concern to potential buyers. Rather than hope a buyer’s inspector doesn’t find anything, have Bennett Home Inspections first give you an accurate report of your home. Allow us to show you any items in your home which could delay the sale.
