Your Charles Town WV Home Inspector
So You Don’t Get STUCK With A Bunch Of Unpleasant Surprises Once You Move Into The Home!
At Dash Home Inspection, I provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about the property. This is done in a clear, concise, and professional manner.
Dash Home Inspection offers trained, experienced, and seasoned home inspection professionals who provide quality inspections.
I take my time and don’t rush through your inspection to get to the next one. That often means I find defects that other guys miss. And that can mean the seller, not you, will pay for the repairs. And because I’m more thorough, our fees tend to be a bit higher. So you can pay a higher fee and get a more thorough inspection, or you can save some money by hiring a cheap inspector, and maybe spend thousands more to fix the things the cheap inspector missed.
“I feel confident that you’ll be satisfied with my inspection service and our inspection report. I know that this inspection is an important step in your purchase, and I want to make sure you get the information you need to make your best-informed decision. I also want to make sure you have an enjoyable inspection experience. This is one more way to demonstrate to you our desire and commitment to meet and exceed your expectations.”
– Wanderson Silva, Your Trusted Home Inspector
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work. Ultimately a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you.
Whether you’re buying or selling a home, you’ll want to hire an InterNACHI-Certified Professional Inspector. As a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, I represent the best-trained and most highly qualified inspectors in the business. InterNACHI is the world’s elite home inspector association because its membership requirements are the toughest in the industry.
Your home is probably the greatest purchase you will ever make. As an InterNACHI- Certified Professional Inspector, I urge you to protect your investment and protect your family by hiring me. I’m proud to bring my expertise to each inspection I perform, and I will do my best job for you. Contact me now to schedule your inspection!
I PROUDLY SERVE THE 4-STATE REGION
I am your neighbor. Dash Home Inspection knows the 4-State region like no one else. I am committed to providing top-quality, honest, and affordable service you can trust. And I do it with professionalism and the courtesy of a good neighbor.
No home is perfect, not even your dream home. You need to know exactly what you are buying when you spend all that money. Don’t spend hundreds of thousands of dollars only to discover your new home has expensive problems. Or, worse yet, problems that can’t be fixed. We can make sure that doesn’t happen in two simple steps. First, schedule your home inspection before you close on your loan. Then hire me for the best home inspection in Martinsburg, WV, or anywhere else in the 4-State area.
I provide the most professional, complete, and accurate assessment you can find. I thoroughly check a home’s major features, including the foundation, roof, walls, attic, basement, plumbing, electrical system, garage, and large appliances. You can even come along with me for a guided walkthrough to gain a complete understanding of the home’s condition.
You don’t want any nasty surprises when trying to sell your home. Hidden problems can lurk behind walls. A seller’s home inspection lets you know the exact condition of your home before it’s listed. You’re not obligated to fix anything but the buyer can walk away if they’re not satisfied. You don’t want to go into the buyer’s home inspection blind and risk killing a deal. It’s better to know ahead of time if your house has any defects worth fixing.
Getting a pre-listing inspection can help you get your asking price. Put the report on the table when buyers visit. Show them what you’ve fixed and provide receipts. This will give peace of mind to both seller and buyer and speed up the sale of the home.
A Pre-drywall inspection should be completed prior to the insulation installation, but after ALL trades have completed their “ROUGH-IN” portion of the project and before you meet with the builder for the buyer’s inspection. This way you will have the report on hand to discuss with the builder any findings.
I also include 360° photos of every room with the report. You will always know what is behind the walls.
Buying or building new construction is miles apart from walking into a resale home. At Dash Home Inspection, we perform inspections on newly constructed homes in Charles Town WV and surrounding areas. We’ve seen how troubling it is for new homeowners moving into new construction that did not go through a thorough inspection.
A home is like a jigsaw puzzle made up of thousands of components put together by different teams. It is a complex endeavor involving many people that are split into sub-contractor groups, each working on certain areas of the new home. Great builders do exist, but it is also nearly impossible to complete the build of a new home without missing something.
Getting a builder’s warranty inspection before the end of the first year in your newly constructed home can save you a lot of money. You may not see any trouble, but statistics show most problems in 5 to 20-year-old homes begin in the first year of occupancy. Building materials often expand and contract with weather changes, and the new construction will move and settle over time. We can spot those hidden defects.
The builder is responsible for repairs to your home while it’s still under warranty. And the cost of warranty repairs has already been calculated into the purchase price of your home. In reality, you have already paid for any needed repairs. It will cost much less to get an inspection now than to pay for big problems out of your pocket in the future.
Whether you are looking to purchase in our 4-State area for NEW or existing homes for sale, it’s the same across the board. An inspection is completely necessary!
Radon is a silent and invisible killer. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. A radon test is the only way to know if you have this deadly radioactive gas in your home. Radon comes from the natural decay of radioactive material in the ground and seeps into structures. It can reach deadly levels in any home. I use the best measuring equipment available for radon testing in Charles Town WV, and the entire region.
Molds are usually not a problem indoors unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions) and irritants. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed.
Testing water quality is more important than ever. So many new contaminants are going into the water supply that authorities can’t test for them all. Local authorities often don’t even know what these chemicals are. Or how many of them are in the water. These new chemicals come from new products such as pharmaceuticals – the EPA calls them “emerging contaminants.” Fortunately, I can detect hundreds of contaminants with the best independent laboratory testing available. We can also test to ensure your water has not been contaminated by old pipes or industrial and agricultural pollution.
Termites will cause substantial damage to your home if left unchecked. They feast on a variety of wood sources, including structural timbers and hardwood flooring. Termites usually work from the inside out. Being vigilant about termite prevention and abatement is paramount, because as soon as a homeowner is able to notice minor damage, considerable damage has most likely already occurred. Our professionals inspect your home for potential termite entry points. These areas are found in foundation cracks, roof vents, or areas of your home with inadequate ground clearance. Once termites find their way in, they don’t just visit and leave, no, they make your home their home.
Every Dash Home Inspection home inspection comes with a free thermal imaging inspection. We use an infrared camera to spot potential problems, including water leaks, moisture buildup in walls and ceilings, cold air drafts, and gaps in your insulation. We also use thermal imaging to inspect your pipes and electrical system and measure your heating and cooling efficiency.
It’s the perfect home tour every time. We can provide potential buyers with a virtual tour of your home using high tech. A virtual tour allows visitors to see inside the home from any angle. We take a 360° photo of your home – one long, continuous image in high def 4K that a viewer can control online. Viewers can walk through the house at their own pace and explore rooms in detail. Visitors can enter and exit the rooms, rotate the scene in any direction, zoom in and out, and move left or right.
A virtual tour gives you more exposure in the market and can maximize offers while minimizing showings. It can eliminate casual viewers and attract only serious buyers for showings.
