Our experienced team is dedicated to providing thorough and accurate inspections, ensuring that you have the information you need to make informed decisions about your property. 45th Parallel Home Inspections services include:

EIFS Inspections: We specialize in Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) inspections, identifying any signs of moisture intrusion or damage to your home’s exterior along with performing moisture intrusion testing under the surface looking for decay, damage and elevated moisture content to give you a clear picture of how the EIFS is performing.

Radon Testing: Radon is a silent killer, and our radon testing services can help you identify and mitigate this hazardous gas, helping to ensure the safety of your family.

Stone Veneer Inspections: Stone veneer adds beauty and value to your home, but it can also hide underlying issues. Our inspections assess the condition of your stone veneer, and can also identify issues below the surface using specialized moisture intrusion testing. It’s best to detect any existing or potential problems early on.

Sewer Line Inspections: Don’t let sewer line issues go unnoticed. Our sewer line inspections use state-of-the-art technology to identify blockages, breaks, bellies, root intrusion, and other issues that could lead to costly repairs.

Re-inspections: If issues are found during the initial inspection, we offer re-inspection services to ensure that any repairs or corrections have been made satisfactorily.

Home Health Checkup Inspections: Our home health checkup inspections focus on just the three places that most homeowners never go: the roof, attic, and crawlspace, where we look for developing issues to prevent larger and more costly repairs down the road.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas of the home do you inspect?
Our comprehensive home inspections cover a wide range of areas, including the foundation, roof, crawlspace, basement, electrical system, plumbing, HVAC systems, and more. We have a saying. ‘If we can fit there, we’ll get there.’

Exterior shot of a homeDo I need to be present during the home inspection?
While it’s not required, we encourage homeowners to be present during at least some of the inspection process. This allows you to ask questions, gain valuable insights, and better understand the condition of your home.

How soon can I expect to receive the inspection report?
We strive to deliver comprehensive inspection reports promptly. In most cases, you can expect to receive your detailed inspection report the same day, but within 24 hours following the completion of the inspection. Specialty inspections like EIFS, stucco, and stone veneer take longer to write and deliver, as do commercial inspections.

How long does a typical home inspection take?
The duration of a home inspection can vary depending on the size and complexity of the property. However, most inspections typically take between two to four hours to complete.

What happens if the inspection uncovers issues?
If the inspection reveals any issues or areas of concern–and even if it doesn’t–our team will provide you with a detailed report outlining our findings and recommendations for addressing any necessary repairs or maintenance. We also prefer to do a verbal high level summary at the completion of every inspection so you can know, at least in the inspector’s opinion, what the bigger concerns are.

With 45th Parallel Home Inspections, you can trust that your property is in good hands. Contact us today to schedule your home inspection and take the first step towards ensuring the safety, integrity, and value of your home.
