Home Maintenance Inspection

Think of a maintenance inspection as a checkup at the doctor that is only needed every few years. The intent of a maintenance inspection is to identify small problems that are usually inexpensive to repair before they turn into large, very expensive problems that have to be repaired immediately. It can also help to prioritize your home improvements.

A maintenance inspection also gives homeowners an opportunity to have a professional home inspector answer questions with a completely unbiased view of the home’s condition.

  • My roofer said the whole roof should be replaced immediately; does it really need replaced this year, or can it wait?
  • Is my deck still safe?
  • Is it normal for my lights to dim, when the AC turns on?
  • Should I invest in new windows or more insulation in the attic?

These are the types of questions a professional home inspector can answer. We are not there to sell anything; our objective is only to give unbiased, accurate information to help you make an informed decision. All items that require attention will be documented in an easy to read and detailed report with pictures. This report will indicate what repairs should be done right away and what just needs monitoring.

A professional and thorough evaluation of all major items inside and outside the home is essential in every Worthy maintenance inspection. We’ll examine more than 600 of your home’s components for structural soundness, proper function, and code compliance. We will also conduct a thorough structural pest inspection on every home we inspect. In most cases, your inspection report will be delivered the same day, and we will explain our findings and recommendations.
