Pre-Listing Inspection

A Pre-Listing Inspection gives sellers the opportunity to learn more about a home’s issues before putting it on the market. We find the deficiencies in the home before buyer’s start requesting inspections of their own. A Pre-Listing inspection can increase a seller’s negotiating power and makes the home more attractive to buyers.


Once we have finished a Buyer’s Inspections and the repairs in the CRL™ have been made, many buyers find peace of mind by requesting a Re-Inspection. We will revisit the home and make sure that all agreed upon repairs were made accurately and completely.

New Construction Inspection

A New Construction Inspection is completed when construction is done but before the final walkthrough takes place. We thoroughly inspect the home for any defects in construction, giving the builder the opportunity to repair these before the walkthrough and finalize the home.

An infrared inspection can identify and document moisture intrusion, energy loss, and even unexpected hot spots.


Thermal Imaging Inspection

In terms of energy loss, an IR camera can detect:

  • heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and  doors;
  • damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
  • air-conditioner compressor leaks;
  • under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss; and
  • broken seals in double-paned windows.

In terms of detecting moisture intrusion, an IR camera can locate:

  • plumbing leaks;
  • hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage;
  • missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; and
  • water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold.

IR cameras are equally effective at locating hot spots in the home, including:

  • circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
  • overloaded and undersized circuits;
  • overheated electrical equipment and components;  and
  • electrical faults before they cause a fire.

Additionally, based on the color gradients that thermal images provide, an inspector can locate:

  • possible pest infestation, as revealed by energy loss through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects;
  • the presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected because of their heat signature that the IR camera captures; and
  • dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents.

Radon Testing

Radon is a dangerous invisible gas that is found everywhere in the United States. This tasteless, odorless substance can easily get into your home through cracks and openings in the property’s foundation. Radon exposure can be dangerous to your health, which is why CPF Home Inspections knows how important radon testing is.

In the past 30 years, half a million Americans have died from radon-induced lung cancer. The fatality statics associated with radon exposure are staggering. As harmful as radon exposure is for adults, the risks are even greater when it comes to children. If there are young children in your home, a radon specialist can test the levels to make sure the house is inhabitable.

WDO/Termite Inspection

When termites infest a home, serious structural damage can occur. In many cases, that damage is largely hidden beneath exterior cladding and interior drywall, and it can be difficult to spot with the untrained eye. We’re able to perform a comprehensive inspection for damage caused by termites and other wood-destroying organisms.
