Pre-Purchase Home Inspection
AQI Inspection Services is proud to offer a residential Pre-Purchase Home Inspection that involves a thorough examination of most visible and accessible components of a residential property. This includes:
- Plumbing System
- Electrical System
- Heating and Air Conditioning Systems
We’re happy to provide the following additional services:
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
Whether you’re a realtor or an individual seller, before you list a home, you should consider scheduling a Pre-Listing Home Inspection. In a Pre-Listing Home Inspection, Derl or Dwight will conduct a comprehensive visual examination of readily accessible components of your property to ensure that everything is sound and functioning as it should. By having your home inspected before you list, you take a tremendous stride toward preventing stalled negotiations after a buyer has scheduled their own pre-final home inspection.
New Construction Inspection
We also offer comprehensive home inspections for recently completed construction. In a New Construction Inspection, either Derl or Dwight will arrive on site to assess the overall condition of a property. We’ll conduct a visual examination of the grounds, structure, and internal systems to verify that the property is free of any major defects.
1-Year Warranty Home Inspection
If you’re the owner of a brand new home, then many components of your home’s construction and internal systems should be covered by the builder’s warranty for twelve months after closing. Before the warranty on your home expires, we recommend scheduling a 1-Year Warranty Home Inspection. We’ll conduct a thorough evaluation of your home to identify any possible structural defects or mechanical deficiencies that are still covered by the builder’s warranty in order to spare you from unnecessary expenses.
Radon is an odorless and invisible radioactive gas that emanates from natural breakdown of certain types of rock and soil. If permitted into the circulatory system of your home, it can cause numerous health problems including lung cancer. Radon is difficult to detect, but Derl and Dwight are both NRPP-certified and equipped with the necessary instruments to test your home for the presence of this dangerous compound.

Light Commercial Inspection
AQI Inspection Services offers Light Commercial Inspections for properties up to 50,000 sq. ft., priced on an individual case-to-case basis. If there is a particular area of a commercial property that you’d like inspected in order to identify a possible deficiency or to confirm that everything is up to par, we’re happy to accommodate your needs.
Home Maintenance Inspection
An annual Home Maintenance Inspection is offered to existing homeowners who would like to identify any issues with their home that can be resolved to extend the property’s longevity and safeguard against potential hazards. A Home Maintenance Inspection consists of a thorough evaluation of most of the same components that are assessed in our Pre-Purchase Home Inspection. In addition to identifying any issues, we’ll also take time to educate the homeowner on ways to improve and maintain their investment.
