General Home Inspection
A home inspection helps provide buyers peace of mind by giving valuable information on the investment they are about to make. An AmeriSpec® inspection provides a visual examination of more than 400 items in a home from the foundation to the roof. Our inspectors are trained to perform a professional inspection that meets the highest standards in the industry and follow the technical guidelines established by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
Our 400+ item inspection findings are packaged in an attractive, easy-to-reference, three-ring binder. The AmeriSpec ReportTM - acknowledged by Realtors® as the gold standard for home inspection reports - features a comprehensive evaluation of the home, a 193 page Home Maintenance Manual, a seasonal maintenance checklist, and a variety of home-related services from our ServiceMaster® partner companies.
AmeriSpec® inspectors go through extensive training and continuing education, always striving to enhance the quality of each inspection conducted. AmeriSpec® offers the best training in the industry by combining classroom instruction and hands-on technical training in our state of the art training facility.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) Testing
This service determines if the combustible appliances in the home are releasing harmful levels of carbon monoxide. Exposure to carbon monoxide reduces the blood's ability to carry oxygen. Often a person or an entire family may not recognize that carbon monoxide is poisoning them. The chemical is odorless and some of the symptoms are similar to common illnesses. This can be particularly dangerous because carbon monoxide's deadly effects are rarely recognized until it is too late to take action against them. For more information visit:
