Tools & Technology

It used to be that a flashlight and a clipboard was all an inspector carried. Times have changed and we now have access to cutting-edge tools that make us more efficient and allow us to see more of the home.

We also provide advanced services like thermography and mold testing. Ask us about it when scheduling your inspection!

Clear and Concise Report

Understanding the condition of your new purchase is important. We inspect the critical components of a home and provide you with clear, detailed descriptions and photos of your home.

Our report is our product in many ways. That’s why we’ve invested in modern reporting systems that incorporate photos and video into a dedicated webpage for each inspection. You can also download a PDF version of your report and print it out if you’d like to read a hard copy version.

Extra Protection

Most home inspection reports point out that the condition of a home may change after the inspection and so they can’t predict the future. While this is true, it doesn’t help home buyers when a repair may be needed shortly after an inspection or a safety recall is issued on an appliance. That’s why we provide a RecallChek report and several warranties with every inspection that cover items from structural and mechanical to underground sewer lines and roofs.

Quality First Inspection

As Certified Professional Home Inspectors, we have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with a thorough and professional, non-intrusive, visual inspection of your home, from the roof to the foundation. Outside the home, we will check the exterior walls, roof, driveway, deck, etc., then we will move inside to examine the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows.

The heating, air-conditioning, plumbing, and electrical systems will all be examined to ensure that they function as intended. Bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms receive a thorough check, along with the attic and basement or crawl space.

Customer Service is Our Highest Priority

You might be wondering, “Do I need a sewer line inspection before buying a house?” The short answer is yes! In our opinion, a sewer inspection should be a mandatory part of your home inspection checklist. When considering what inspections to get when buying a home, do not overlook the sewer line. Getting a sewer inspection is one of the most important home inspection tips for buyers. Sewer line inspections are inexpensive, but sewer repairs can be extremely costly. There’s no such thing as a typical cost for repairing your sewer lines. It can start at a few hundred dollars to clear a blockage; or it could be tens of thousands of dollars to excavate your yard and replace the pipes. The repair bills depend on the sewer line condition, the problem’s location and, the root cause (pun intended).  Avoid spending money on costly repairs after your new home purchase, with a simple sewer inspection, you can see the condition of sewer line.

Morales Home Inspection has been amazing and I can’t imagine NOT using them in the future. My request for repairs for my client was so clean and easy because you just click on the repair to add to your report for backup. James was my AMAZING technician and he was very thorough, beyond friendly and super detailed! Personally when buying my own property in the past, I’ve never had good luck with home warranties, but this company was referred to me by a colleague who has closed over 300 home sale transactions just last year alone. That being said, I knew that they were tried, tested and true. If that’s not enough, another benefit when hiring them, is you can get your clients an 18 month warranty that allows your client to pick their own contractor if something goes wrong with the house. Most companies will pick and send someone out to you that they know. They offer more for less but the quality is worth more and waaaay more valuable in my opinion than any of the other companies out there.

Morales Inspection Services go beyond reliable professional inspection reports. Their inspectors are professional, timely and create a good impression with your clients (from a Realtor's perspective). In addition, the Home Pre-Inspection they offer before a seller puts their home in the market can save thousands of dollars for the seller and create a smoother transaction overall. Their service is so trustworthy as to cause a free 6 month extended warranty for your buyers.

I have been in the real estate business for almost 19 years and I have used a few inspectors and all were decent but in 2017 I started to add Morales Home Inspections as my go to and they are hands down the most thorough, responsive, friendly, super knowledgeable and ethical professionals in the field. Marco, who owns the company, stands by his work and is a man of his word. I have not met any home inspector who has the standards, professionalism and overall knowledge and skill that Marco and his team deliver. I believe in providing 5 star anticipatory service for all of my clients and can assure you that Marco understands this and is in true alignment with our white glove concierge service that we provide all of our clients. You need look no further if you want the best of the best. Marco and his team are the Ritz Carlton of home inspectors. Truly!! Look no further as if you are looking out for your clients and at a high level then this is the inspection company to use.

There is so much to consider when looking for a new home, and its easy to over look items when walking through a property. James made sure that nothing was missed and explained in detail any areas of concern. His knowledge and know how was much appreciated.
