Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) Inspections
Kustom Home Inspection will evaluate the property’s interior & exterior, identify any signs of termite (or other wood destroying insect) activity as well as conditions conducive to termites or other infestations during a Wood Destroying Insect Inspection. The assessment includes physical and visual inspections, which usually includes inspecting, tapping and probing susceptible wood. At the conclusion of the inspection, you will be provided with an NPMA-33 (National Pest Management Association) which also satisfies VA loan requirements. To learn more, contact Kustom Home Inspection .
Commercial Property Inspections
Commercial inspections are completed for properties like apartment complexes, motels, office buildings, retail stores and warehouses. The inspection evaluates the major systems of the property and the visible structural components; it also catalogs the type and condition of HVAC equipment. The commercial inspection results are reported in a concise, computer-generated, comprehensive report of the building’s overall condition adhering to current ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) standards.
Certification Inspections are used for those times when you are in need of advice or guidance on a particular system of your home or property. For example, instead of the full home inspection, you may want someone to evaluate your electrical system, or the grading around your home. These inspections also include a report or letter and are often used for contractors or new build homes. For more information on certification inspections, please visit our Contact Us page.
