Why Choose HTI

My Promise to You

 

High Tech Inspections is Owned and Operated by me – Robert Alexander. I inspect every home as though it was my own.

I depend solely on referrals from clients and work for you – the home buyer or seller – NOT the Realtor or other individual with a vested interested in the real estate transaction.

 

Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing.

One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work – a lot of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.

Our Report

To our home inspection client, the report is what they are paying for. At High Tech Inspections, we use a state-of-the-art computerized reporting system designed specifically for professional inspection reporting. Even the most seasoned home inspector can forget to inspect things in a home – after all, most quality home inspections cover over 300 items!1

Our inspectors are equipped with handheld computers which contain a complete checklist of all the home systems and ensure a thorough inspection every time.

We deliver to our clients a comprehensive, yet easy to read narrative report complete with digital photographs and a 96-page booklet entitled, “How to Operate Your Home.” (a $15 value!)

Our Equipment/Tools

An important part of our inspection process is utilizing state-of-the-art equipment to aid in our visual inspection. Not all home inspectors carry the proper tools to perform an adequate home inspection. At HTI, we make a significant investment in our tools to ensure each client receives the very best inspection every time.

Examples of some of the high-tech equipment HTI Home Inspectors carry are:

Moisture Meter a device that uses radio frequency and/or probes to confirm/detect the presence of moisture in a home’s structural system.

Combustible Gas Detector – identify gas leaks and/or the presence of combustible gases such as: propane, methane, ethane, and butane.

Carbon Monxide (CO) Detector – while not a combustable gas, carbon monoxide is odorless and quite deadly. CO can be found around a fireplace, furnace or garage if not vented properly.

Autoranging Multimeter – verify correct voltages and electrical service to the home. Additionally, it can be used to test equipment (such as the Air Conditioner) to ensure it is operating under manufacturers recommended power load.

GFCI/AFCI Tester tests ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) and arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCI) for proper operation. Unfortunately, the “test” button on these outlets are not good insurance for proper operation. Some electrician’s and “Do-It-Yourselfers” have learned tricks of the trade to “fool” the test. Our test equipment will identify this as a “false ground or boot leg” circuit that is not wired properly.

Laser Thermometer – used to safely and accurately measure the temperature of heating elements, air from supply ducts and areas around home openings such as windows and doors. It also allows access to hard to reach areas for measurement such as supply ducts in a cathedral ceiling, etc. Additionally, the laser thermometer can be used to help safely identify overloaded circuits in the fuse panel.

Flexible fiber optic Borescope – allows the inspector to see into inaccessible places that would otherwise not allow a visual inspection such as: heat exchangers, pipe drains, vents, flue ducts, behind walls, air conditioners, heat pumps, etc. This tool is particularly useful for: checking for blocked air conditioner evaporator coils, examining heat exchangers for cracks, insect and rodent inspection, checking for ductwork clearance, or presence of moisture or mold.

Our Inspectors

At the end of the day, all of the latest technology and high-tech gagetry does NOT replace the need for a competent home inspector. All of our Inspectors are state licensed/certified and have been trained by some of the best inspectors and construction experts in the business. Additionally all HTI home inspectors are members of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) and maintain a strict code of ethics and conduct. As a NACHI inspector, we also have demanding continuing education requirements to maintain our association.

Our education is a continuous process involving a great deal of dedication and financial investment to stay up to date and proficient on building/construction standards, inspection techniques, and tools of the trade – all of this to provide the best value for our clients.
