High-Quality Commercial and Home Inspection Services
At ABIR Inspections, we provide high-quality, professional commercial and home inspection services that typically involve a 5-7 hour thorough walk-through of the property to assess the condition of the visible and accessible components. We are fully insured and participate in HomeGauge’s Extra Care Service so that we can help you with your home insurance quote at the time of inspection.

Aerial Drone Photography (Coming Soon!)
When weather and terrain permits, we will use an Aerial Drone during the property inspection to collect photos and videos from overhead. This allows our client to see the entire property view and get a better understanding of the roof. This video of the property will be included in your inspection report.
During a Buyer’s Inspection, we make sure that our client has all the information we could possibly give them about a property’s condition, the repairs it will require, and the best way to go about making these repairs.
A property purchase is a huge investment, and we will thoroughly inspect each area of that investment to help make sure that you move into a building that is safe, comfortable, and everything you have been looking for.
Radon is a radioactive and cancer-causing gas that, once trapped inside a building, becomes very dangerous to anyone exposed to it. We offer professional Radon Testing to measure levels within commercial buildings and residential to help insure they are safe.
We highly encourage all property owners and buyers to professionally test for radon, but we believe this test is so important that we also offer a coupon for a DIY Radon Testing Kit with all of our standard inspection services.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
After construction, many new homes are sold with a 12-month builder’s warranty which protects homeowners from having to pay to repair defects in construction.
During an 11th Month Warranty Inspection, we thoroughly search the home for these defects and let the owner know exactly what to repair before their warranty is over.
Commercial Building Inspection
Buying a commercial property is a huge decision, and buyers deserve to know exactly what they’re getting into before closing.
During a Commercial Building Inspection, we thoroughly inspect a commercial building’s visible and accessible components so that buyers have a good idea of the property’s condition and repair needs.
Our Other Inspection Services
During a Pre-Listing Inspection, we come to a property before it gets put on the market to help the seller identify issues that would stand out to potential buyers. This gives the seller a good understanding of how to communicate with buyers and also provides them with an opportunity to make repairs before listing.
New Construction Inspection
A New Construction Inspection is completed before the final walk-through with the builder and serves to help make sure that the buiding is defect-free. During the inspection, we search thoroughly for the small oversights that can be made during the construction process so that they can be corrected before occupancy.
New Construction Phase Inspections
We offer New Construction Phase Inspections to help builders identify and repair any defects in construction before moving on to the next phase of the project. Doing this lessens the risk of defects getting sealed away behind finishing materials, going unnoticed until they cause major issues later on. We offer any number of Phase Inspections that our client requests.
Home Maintenance Inspection
Home Maintenance Inspections help owners stay a step ahead of their home’s repair needs. During the inspection, we find sometimes hard-to-notice maintenance issues in the home that can be addressed now so that they don’t turn into more expensive and difficult-to-repair issues down the line. Implementing a yearly or bi-yearly maintenance inspection can also help identify unsatisfactory repairs and maintenance done by others.
Wind Mitigation Inspection
Your insurance provider may ask to see the results of a Wind Mitigation Inspection before offering certain insurance credits. During the inspection, we check the home and assess how equipped it is to handle wind damage in the future.
4 Point Inspection
A 4 Point Inspection is typically required for homes 30-years or olders and is completed for insurance purposes. During the inspection, we assess the condition of the roof, plumbing system, electrical system, and HVAC system. A 4 Point is a quick overall view of the 4 main components; it is not as thorough as a standard inspection report.
A Re-Inspection keeps buyer and seller on the same page after a Buyer’s Inspection. Once the repairs made from the initial report have been completed, we will revisit the property to ensure that all agreements were met and that changes in the building are up to standard.
We offer Water Testing, which should be completed before using or consuming the water in a building, especially if built prior to 1986, which may contain lead in water pipes. During this service, we will test the water for bacteria and other harmful contaminants.
Problematic Drywall Inspection
During a Problematic Drywall Inspection, we check to see if a home has “Chinese Drywall,” which has a high sulfur content and can be responsible for certain health issues, corroding pipes, bad odor, and other home damages.
Thermal Imaging can be added on to an inspection service for an additional fee. We use a FLIR C3 Thermal Imaging Camera, which picks up on hot and cool spots to diagnose improper insulation in the ceiling.
Consultation with no Report
For $200, we offer consultations with no written report. During these consultations, we will answer specific questions you have about the property and explain visible defects.
We offer Mold Testing through a professional third-party. Mold in the home can cause damage to the surfaces where it grows and becomes a health concern once spores get into the air.
We offer WDO Inspections through a professional third-party. Wood-destroying organisms, like termites, can cause major structural damage to a building by tunneling through the wood, so it is important to find and remedy an infestation as soon as possible.
