Whether you're a seasoned homebuyer or a first-time purchaser, our thorough inspection process offers valuable insights into the property's structural integrity and potential maintenance needs.

NEW BUILD

Congratulations on buying a brand new home! Now is the time to have an experienced, third party evaluation of your recently built property. We will look closely at the finished and newly installed components to make sure they are working property, and without safety issues, before you move in.

11-Month Warranty

As your one-year builder's warranty draws to a close, now is the perfect time to ensure that every aspect of your home is in top-notch condition. Our 11-Month New Build Warranty Inspection is designed to give you peace of mind by identifying any potential issues that may still be covered under your builder's warranty.

PRE-DRY WALL

This critical inspection takes place before the drywall goes up, giving us an unparalleled view of the infrastructure, wiring, plumbing, and ventilation systems that will soon be concealed.

First Step Home Inspections should be your first step when you are getting ready to close on your home. Matt Jenks did an outstanding job with identifying issues that were unseen and not obvious to the naked eye. His inspection was thorough and took several hours. His report was thorough and very detailed with lots of pictures and explanations for the issues he found. Matt went above and beyond and saved me several thousand dollars when he identified a root issue. The homeowner was notified of the issue and had it fixed before closing. For all your home inspection needs, make it the First Step experience.

First Step Home Inspectors is the home inspection company I recommend to all my real estate clients. As an Exclusive Buyer's Agent, I appreciate that their online order process is smooth and efficient, prices are reasonable, and the services they offer are incredible (thermal imaging, sewer scope, etc.). The reports they provide arrive quickly and are easy to read. First Step Home Inspectors provides quality work to my clients and makes me look great as an Exclusive Buyer's Agent.

Top notch! Discovered soooo much and took time to explain options. Very pleased! A house is like a snappy dresser... there's usually a mess underneath!
