Buying a new home, getting ready to sell your home? These are difficult decisions to make. Is it the right move for you and possibly your family? Are there defects present in the home that you need to know about, that will cost a significant amount of money to repair? Are there safety hazards that may pose a risk to you and your family? It's a lot to consider, where to begin?
The best way to begin is with a quality home inspection. My name is Chip Adalian and as the owner of Capital Area Home Inspections, I guarantee that is what I deliver to each and every one of my clients. Home inspecting isn't a hobby to me, it's something that I'm passionate about. Passing the knowledge that I've gain throughout a lifetime of working in the construction industry during the course of the home inspection to the client is incredibly satisfying to me.
WHATS INCLUDED IN THE HOME INSPECTION?
A home inspection is a visual, non invasive inspection of the home and it's systems. I will be inspecting these items with an eye on safety, operation, and condition. I will go from the basement floor of the home up to the roof covering, as well as the grounds, decks, patios, and porches. During the inspection I will be noting and photographing items that are defects for use in the report. After the onsite portion of the inspection I will take my findings to the office and create a professional report. This report will contain the defects found with photographs to identify the area and a brief narrative which will identify, describe, explain, and inform you what actions to take regarding the defect. The report will also contain information regarding the age of individual systems, ie; hot water tank, heating, cooling. This information is critical as these system have average useful life cycles and repairs or replacement may become necessary as the units age. There will also be deferred maintenance items in the report. Many people appreciate this as it gives them a "to do" list for the property. Within 48 hours of the onsite inspection, the report link will be delivered to you by email so you can access the report via the web. For those without web access printing is also available.
I offer inspection times throughout the week. We can do your inspection at a time that fits your schedule. Don't want to take time off from work? Let's start after you get out of work. Only have time on the weekend? No problem, I can accommodate weekend times. As long as I don't have another inspection booked, it's likely that I'll be able to accommodate your scheduling needs.
Capital Area Home Inspections can be your one stop shop. Offering ancillary services to include; radon monitoring, termite (WDO) inspections, mold testing, well flow testing, water quality testing, septic testing, pool inspections, and spa inspections. Over the past 20 years I've forged relationships with some of the best vendors in the area. If there is a service you need that I don't offer, I'll be able to provide you with a great vendor.

As a member in good standing of the International Association Of Home Inspectors, www.INACHI.org,
I am required to far exceed the continuing education requirements of New York State. As such I am always learning new things that I am able to bring to my inspections. The construction industry is constantly evolving with new products and best practices. Do you want an inspector that does the minimum to satisfy the state's continuing education requirements or one that greatly exceeds those requirements inspecting your prospective new property? My membership also requires me to abide by their Code Of Ethics, which is the strictest in the industry and always puts the clients interests first.

No home is the same. People need different services. As such, providing a flat rate price here will not service your needs. Give me a call. Within a few short minutes of discussing the features of the home and your needs I will provide a quote. Your satisfaction is my goal and speaking with you about the home before we arrive onsite is the best way to ensure that you will be completely satisfied with the experience.
- "Thank you so much Chip I cannot tell you how much I appreciate how quickly you were able to get out and inspect the house."
- "Thank you for your patience with Chris walking through the house with you. We feel a lot better since he was able to talk with you and learn more about the house."
- "I will not hesitate to email you if we do have any more questions! And we will pass along your contact info if we meet anyone who needs an inspector."
- "Good morning Chip, thanks for the inspirational report it help out a lot. I had a plumber over there already and a mason tomorrow. Things are going well and will be in-touch if any help is needed, thanks again"
- "Thanks, Chip! Very nice to know all the things we need to do. It is nice to have a to do list now so we know what should be done. I think we'll focus on the safety hazards first!
These are just few samples, but there are many more satisfied clients out there. My goal is to ensure that each and every clients receives a first rate inspection, report, and as much follow up service as they need. The biggest compliment I can receive is having a client tell me they will refer me to anyone they know that needs a home inspection. That is always what I'm striving for.
