Our 4 Pillars

Similar to core values, we at First Glance Home Inspections uphold ourselves to the 4 pillars of strength. Just like a homes foundation, without these values our structure would crumble.

What To Expect At The Home Inspection

We will arrive at the inspection early and eager to meet you. We search for all visible defects and maintenance items. First, we begin our inspection process on the roof. We carry up to a 32 ft ladder to get us up to 2 story homes. If it’s safe to climb, we walk them on foot. Furthermore, the ones that aren’t safe we can still view. We carry a FAA 107 commercial pilot license to perform drone inspections. We then inspect everything in between, down to the foundation. If applicable, we save the crawl space for last. This is because we want to run a large amount of water in order to ensure there are no active leaks.

Subsequently, as seen in the video above, we use thermal imaging on every inspection. With this technology we search for water intrusion, missing insulation, electrical concerns, etc. Also, don’t be afraid to follow us around at the inspection. You can ask questions along the way. That’s what you paid us for. Therefore, take advantage of it!

The Report

Modern, intuitive home inspection software

We do not finish our reports on site, because we want to focus on every detail. However, at the end of the inspection, you receive a brief summary of the major concerns (Red immediate action on report). Furthermore, the full report will be completed within a maximum of 24 hours of the inspection. However, the vast majority receive it the same day. I use an industry leading, modern reporting software. This interactive HTML report is easy to read and understand. As a result, you can view the full report or focus on the summary at the click of a button. Need the report printed? No problem, there are tabs in order to view and print the PDF version as well.

My Home Owners Say

“James inspected our home with great detail and care. He treated our home purchase as if it were his own. Very professional, affordable, and donates a portion of his business proceeds to a charity of choice. I highly recommend First Glance for your home inspection needs. Thank you so much James!”

Kirstie & David • New Home Owners

“James was professional, honest, and thorough. I’ve been to many inspections for myself and for clients. Some inspectors have rushed and seemed annoyed with my questions, but James was patient. The roof was almost brand new, so I was sure it wouldn’t be an issue, but James informed me of some problems. I am so thankful because I never would have gone up there to check!”

Dawna • Realtor & Home Owner

“I received very quick availability from first glance, and near-immediate email response to my inquiry. James was incredibly thorough with our inspection, from the crawlspace to the roof and everything in between. They also didn’t use drone photos to inspect the roof, but actually got up there and inspected it which I appreciate. he checked the wiring systems, plumbing, flooring, the whole 9 yards. I was even more pleased when I received my report same day with a breakdown of every space and system, clearly outlined with the severity of each problem and suggested fix. Wasn’t even sure how he had the time to put it all together so fast for the amount of detail and corresponding pictures. Id definitely recommend using their services.”
