Purchasing a home in Las Cruces NM? What is a Home Inspection?


  • A home-commercial inspection is a professional, complete visual examination of all the systems and physical structural elements of a home or commercial building. Our emphasis is on identifying existing or potential problems that would affect a purchaser's buying decision. It is very important to hire a Licensed and Certified Home Inspector.

  • The commercial and home inspector will point out problems and explain to them so that you understand them.  Our home and commercial inspection reports also indicate the good points of the building as well.  The home inspector will explain what routine maintenance is needed to keep your home or commercial building in top condition. This will help you to get the most benefit from the property inspection and gain more understanding of the systems as well as how to maintain them.

What does a typical home inspection cover?

  • The Inspector will assess all the major structural elements and systems within a commercial building or home. These include heating and cooling, electrical, plumbing, roof, foundation, attic, walls, doors, windows, and more.  Our real estate inspectors will ensure the most thorough home inspection investigation of the property is conducted. 

  • Common Defects

    • No house is perfect. Even the best built and best-maintained homes will always have a few items in less than perfect conditions. Below are some of the items we most commonly find when inspecting a home:

      • Roofing Problems with roofing material are the single most common defect we find. Usually, it doesn't mean the roof needs to be replaced, simply that it is in need of maintenance or repair.

      • Ceiling stains Caused by past or present leaks, ceiling stains are very common. It can be difficult to tell whether the stains are from leaks still present, or were caused by leaks which have since been repaired.

      • Electrical hazards Most common in older homes, but often found in newer homes as well. Electrical hazards come in many forms, from non-grounded outlets to wiring done incorrectly by the homeowner.

      • Rotted wood Caused by being wet for extended periods of time, most commonly found around tubs, showers and toilets inside, or roof eaves and trim outside.

      • Water heater installations Many water heaters are not installed properly or have visible evidence of nearing the end of their service life span.

      • Gas furnace Most gas furnaces seem to be in need of routine maintenance such as new filters or service by a technician. Many have other issues such as faulty operation or inadequate fire clearance as well.

      • Plumbing defects Plumbing issues commonly found include dripping faucets, leaking fixtures, slow drains, etc... Even in brand new homes, it is common to identify minor plumbing defects.

Does newly constructed homes also need a home inspection?


  • A professional new home inspection is important.  We can spot potential problems early, while they are still easy to correct.  As licensed home inspection professionals, we may find problem areas where a builder may have taken shortcuts or not followed good building practices. 

  • If it is "move-in ready", we still typically find some areas that the builder or the subcontractors overlooked.  In fact, most people are surprised at the number of deficiencies that their brand-new home has.  In other cases, where the home builder had done due diligence in attention to detail, with a good oversight of his subcontractors, a clean home inspection report will give the client more peace of mind that they won't have to be trying to call the home builder back several times to fix things over the next year.

  • New homes can have problems, too.  Sure, a new home may look flawless, but that's because no one has lived in it to see if anything's amiss. Ever notice how new products can be riddled with flaws that are caught only after they've been tried out by consumers? 

  • Well, the same is true for homes. Buy a new one, and you're essentially the guinea pig testing how well the HVAC system works and whether the basement floods during a storm. An old home, by contrast, may have more wear and tear, but the owner is required by law to disclose any known problems.

  • Once construction is complete, ask your home inspector to review the house a few days before your final walk-through with the builder. The inspector is trained to notice details that escape the unpracticed eye. Add these issues to your final punch list, and don't fork over the final payment until each problem is solved.

  • BEWARE of the home builder that will tell you "you do not need a home inspection, we send an inspector ourselves" - This is typically an employee of the builder who is not a State Licensed / Certified Inspector - Independent Inspectors work for their clients only.
