Inspections Done Right

Home Inspections

Residential home inspections are completely comprehensive. We report on more than regulations require because it’s the right thing to do and what you need in order to make informed decisions. Whether you are buying, selling, building, or your 12 month warranty is about to expire, Burnside Home Inspections has you covered! We tailor every inspection to your unique situation!

With technology like infrared cameras, moisture detectors and more, we are able to detect hidden issues that other home inspectors may overlook. Thermal imaging is included with every inspection when we feel an issue is best represented this way. We also show up in a full size truck with extension ladders and stocked tool boxes, so we have everything needed to get the job done right!

Our pricing is completely transparent and based solely on the home’s square footage. We do not charge extra fees for basements, crawlspaces, older homes, thermal images, credit card payments, taxes, etc. The price you see below is the price you pay, period. Reports ready next day!

Optional Add On Services

The following services can be added to any inspection. To book a service without a home inspection, use the Stand Alone Services Form.

Inspection Services - Radon

Radon Test

Radon is colorless, odorless, and extremely carcinogenic (cancer-causing). It can affect homes anywhere in the US, and the only way to check for elevated levels of radon in your home is with testing. High levels of radon can be found in any building. It’s important to have it tested by a certified radon tester. NC does not mandate the use of certified equipment. However, at Burnside Home Inspections we do it right and use AARST-NRPP & NRSB certified professional grade continuous radon monitors which provide hourly results and are tamper proof. Reports ready in 2-3 days!

Termite WDO Report

Wood-Destroying Insect Inspection

The Official North Carolina Wood-Destroying Insect Information Report (Form No. WDIR 100), adopted by the Structural Pest Control Committee, is used for reporting the presence or absence of wood-destroying insects in structures for sale. A person must be licensed by the Structural Pest Control Division to issue this report. It is the only form which is legal for this purpose and is issued on almost every residential structure sold. Burnside Home Inspections uses only local licensed pest control operators who meet state and lender requirements. Reports ready in 1-2 days!

Well, Septic and Water Testing

Well Water Test

Don’t assume that if the water looks good, doesn’t smell bad, and the current owners aren’t sick, that the water must be fine. Discovering that the water is unfit to drink is something you want discovered during the buying process, not after. In fact, many lenders require well water testing. FHA, VA, and USDA loans also have special regulatory requirements for testing. Burnside Home Inspections is the best choice because we use a NC DPH/EPA Certified Laboratory for our testing. This ensures your report will be in compliance with government and lender guidelines. Reports ready in 2-3 days!

Pre-Drywall Inspection

One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished. Reports ready next day!

Re-Inspection

After you’ve had an inspection, you may find asking the sellers to repair some issues makes sense. Let us head back to the house just before closing to check if any requested repairs were completed. We will apply our education, experience, and honest convictions to investigate the repairs and produce a report for you. Reports ready next day!
