Thank you for performing a mold inspection in our attic and providing a great report and a fast turnaround on lab samples. It helped us catch the problem before it got out of control.
Thank you so much!! Your report is thorough and detailed but also readable and understandable. We are far more than simply “satisfied” with it — we couldn’t ask for more.

The only way to know if the home you intend to buy is going to be an excellent investment is to have a professional home inspector in Raleigh such as Blueberry Inspections LLC, use our trained eye to spot defects that may cause problems for you in the future. Or, if you plan on selling a home, being able to present the potential buyer with an updated inspection, builds trust and can speed along the selling process.

What Really Matters in a Raleigh Home Inspection?
The home inspection process can be stressful. A home inspection in Raleigh is supposed to give you peace of mind but often has the opposite effect. You'reasked to absorb a lot of information in a short time, and this often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies, and minor imperfections, and these are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:
1. Major defects: An example of this would be a significant structural failure.
2. Things that may lead to major defects: A small water leak coming from a piece of roof flashing, for example.
3. Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home: Structural damage caused by termite infestation, for example.
4. Safety hazards. Such as a lack of GFCI-protection.
Anything in these categories should be corrected. Often a serious problem can be fixed inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in both 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.
What the Heck is a Home Inspection Anyway?
A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of a residential dwelling, designed to identify observed material defects within specific components of the home. Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, and other essential systems or portions of the house, as identified and agreed to by the client and the home inspector before the inspection process.
There is no crystal ball. A home inspection in Raleigh is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall condition of the home. The home inspection is an observation based on the visible and apparent condition of the structure and components on the date the home inspection took place and is not the prediction of future conditions.
You may later find problems in your house that were not identified in your home inspection report. That’s because a home inspection will not reveal every problem that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection.
A “material defect” is a specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people. The fact that a system or component is near, at or beyond the end of its normal useful life, is not, in itself, a material defect.
An inspection report describes and identifies the inspected systems, structures, and components of the home, and identifies the material defects that the home inspector observed. Your Raleigh home inspection report may contain recommendations regarding the conditions reported and suggestions for correction, monitoring, or further evaluation by professionals.
