Home Inspection

Standard Home Inspection

Criterium Engineers Standard Home Inspection is a limited visual inspection consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE), designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property's current condition.

We look at the following areas during our Standard Home Inspection:

Structure Interior
Wood-Destroying Insect Activity Exterior
Basement Water Roofing
Ventilation Life and Fire Safety
Heating and Cooling Energy Efficiency Pool and Spa
Plumbing Environmental

We write our home inspection reports in plain English that our clients find easy to follow. The most popular feature of a Criterium report is our Home Maintenance Plan, which provides home owners with useful information about their home's expected condition for the next ten years.

Exhaustive Home Inspection

This includes a standard inspection plus invasive testing and/or equipment disassembly (as approved in advance by you and the property owner). The purpose is to gather all available and relevant information about the property. This more extensive inspection goes beyond the available visible evidence and provides an even more thorough analysis.
