What's Included in Our Residential Inspection Services

Electrical Inspection

The electrical system is a significant component of your high quality Timberline inspection. We report on details such as lighting, fixtures function and condition, wiring material and distribution systems, receptacles, and electrical panels. We understand how important the electrical system inspection is for your next property purchase. Timberline has you covered!

Exterior Inspection

Nathan walks the perimeter of the building, reporting on the integrity of the exterior systems. He looks at the type and condition of the siding, windows, waterproofing, lot grading and water conditions, gutters and downspouts, retaining walls and driveway conditions. These are a few of the many systems and factors Nathan reviews as part of your inspection!

Heating & Cooling Inspection

Age, condition and functionality of the heating and cooling systems is key information to know when purchasing, selling or renovating a Home or building. Upcoming or deferred maintenance are key factors on life expectancy of heating and cooling equipment; all need-to-know factors identified by Nathan in our detailed inspection report!

Insulation & Ventilation Inspection

Insulation and ventilation play a key role in your building's longevity and utility bills. Timberline inspects for moisture, which is detrimental to finishes and structural components, making sure it is vented correctly. Nathan provides details about insulation materials, types, and amounts, ensuring you keep nice and warm during the winter, and good and cool during the summer. Helping you understand how these factors may affect your energy usage. Timberline's report will give you a clear picture of your properties, strengths, and weaknesses.

Interior Inspection

With an interior inspection, Timberline will help you understand if there are potential issues within the building, such as sloped floors, large wall cracks, doors that open and close on their own, and more! Along with many of these subtle details, Nathan also thinks it's great for you to know about any wall, ceiling or flooring damage, damaged windows and doors and affected operation, water stains and their moisture levels, and so much more! Timberline uses advanced and accurate tools, like laser levels and moisture meters, to bring details like these to light and help you make the most informed decision possible!

Plumbing Inspection

No one enjoys plumbing issues! Timberline's inspection gives you a thorough overview of the distribution of plumbing and septic materials. This includes water heater type and age, and much more to consider with your prospective purchase or sale. Our detailed reports will help with insurance coverage, as your insurance provider may want to know much of what our report covers. You'll have lots of great information about the condition of your plumbing system from your Timberline inspection!

Roof Inspection

The roof is an integral part of your building envelope and keeping you and your family dry. Nathan walks the roof when safe, to inspect 100% of the membrane and related systems. If he cannot walk a roof, then Nathan will employ other techniques, such as roof edge inspection, or ground level binoculars review, to ensure a detailed examination.

Structure Inspection

The structure of the building is an essential component in Timberline's inspections. Structural deficiencies, such as foundation cracks or rotted wood, can affect the stability and integrity of the structure, which is a priority when inspecting your property!
