Marana, AZ Inspections
Residents of Marana, AZ, who need a property inspector can end their search. Bills Home Inspection has more than 30 years of industry experience and provides comprehensive inspections for homes and commercial buildings.
Buying a home is a major undertaking, so you'll want to make sure there are no hidden liabilities before you sign the contract. Even if you're the seller, an inspection can give potential buyers peace of mind.
Our inspection will cover everything from the foundation to the roof. We'll look for holes in the roof, measure the quality of the shingles or tiles, and ensure that the AC and heating system is in good working order. We'll go into the attic to check insulation levels and also be alert to signs of pests like ants and rodents. With regards to the foundation, we'll search for issues like stress cracks and uneven floors. The basement will also receive close attention because this area is vulnerable to pipe leaks and foundation leaks - and, as a consequence, mold growth.
You can count on us to inspect the plumbing and electrical systems, pointing out problems like faulty or chewed up wiring and root intrusion in the sewer lines. All interior and exterior components will be tested, including appliances and electrical outlets. We'll also determine what the shape of the siding, flashing, and trim are in. Lastly, our inspection can extend to the garage and shed.
Many banks and lending institutions require that homes undergo a Wood-Destroying Insect Inspection Report (WDIIR) inspection before a transaction takes place. Our company is a licensed pest control company, so we can fill out such reports.
The termites you want to watch out for in this area are subterranean termites. These will hollow out any wet or decayed wood on your property, starting from the foundation upwards, but they thankfully leave plenty of signs of their presence, such as discarded wings and mud tubes. We'll report any termite damage and note any signs that a termite treatment was previously attempted. The WDIIR will also require us to mention any areas that were inaccessible to our inspectors.
Commercial Building Inspections
We can work on everything from office buildings to retail stores to medical care facilities. As with a residential inspection, our team will check the HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems in addition to the ventilation. Vents can easily get clogged up with dirt and pollen and retain secondhand smoke, so we might recommend cleaning them out. From the alarm systems to construction equipment, we'll make sure each component is in compliance with the relevant safety codes.
We'll pay special attention to the landscaping, as dangerous pests can be found in the garden or in underground burrows. The entries and exits will be inspected for any fire hazards, and the parking area checked for wear and tear - it may need to be restriped. Let us also check the structure and the roof.
Inside, you can expect us to go over the walls, floors, ceilings; the kitchen and bathrooms; and any office or storage areas.
