Types of Home Inspections

Buyer's Home Inspection

The most common type of home inspection - used  to determine the condition of the home and identify any potential issues before a purchase goes through.

Pre-listing Home Inspection

An inspection used by sellers to identify any home defects prior to listing, in order to remove potential barriers and ensure the optimal price for the home. 

New Home Warranty Protection Inspection

An inspection that occurs at the end of a new home 1-year warranty period (usually month 11) to determine if any repairs are needed before the warranty expires.

Preventative Maintenance Home Inspection

An inspection used by a homeowner (recommended every 5-7 years) to determine the condition of a home in order to address any potential issues and budget for any major repairs in the future.

What is a Home Inspection?

An inspection is a thorough examination of the exterior and interior of the residential property including the grounds, the structure, and the mechanical systems that comprise the property to determine structural defects, broken or obsolete components, and damage due to water, wear and tear, and other conditions.

Our Process

PDX Hive will professionally assess each component of your home, looking for visible defects, damage, and safety concerns. The process usually takes about 2-3 hours, and you are welcome to join the inspector during the walk-through. At the end of the inspection, you will be provided with a verbal summary of key points, and are encouraged to ask questions and seek any additional information you need to understand the condition of the home. After the inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report with helpful illustrations targeting the issue. The report covers the following 10 components: 

roofing, exterior and site, structure, electrical, heating, central air conditioning, insulation and ventilation, plumbing, interiors, and built-in kitchen appliances. Our Lead Inspector is ASHI trained, and our unbiased evaluations are presented in a way that you can understand. 


*Please note: Per Oregon law, inspectors are not allowed to inspect certain components in your home. Please review our Agreement and the Oregon Standards of Practice for more details.
