Residential Home Inspections

For most of us, buying a home is the single largest investment we will make. Protect yourself and your investment with a professional home inspection by Building Inspection Services (BIS). Don’t let thousands of dollars worth of necessary repairs go undetected. BIS can make the unknown known with our thorough, top to bottom inspection of your property and detailed certified report, as well as cost estimates for repairs or replacement of most deficiencies. Before closing on a pre-owned home or new construction, or commencing litigation on a property, call the professionals at BIS.

BIS Makes the Unknown…Known

An informed client is empowered to make decisions that result in peace of mind and/or savings that far outweigh the price of our inspection service. Therefore, a home inspection should be seen as an investment rather than an expense.

“Don’t rely on others to choose an inspector for you. New and inexperienced inspectors are often able to obtain professional recommendations, regardless of their actual levels of thoroughness, competence, or lack thereof.”
– The Miami Herald

Upon completion of the on-site inspections, BIS will provide a thorough and precise certified report detailing the observed deficiencies.

We Stand Behind Our Work

To protect your investment, BIS believes it is critical that any firm performing a home inspection also provide a warranty.   BIS provides, at no additional cost, a 90 day limited warranty for selected inspection phases on owner occupied single-family homes.
