General Home Inspection
Our general home inspections are a non-invasive, visual examination of the areas of your home that are safely accessible. The inspection generally includes assessing exterior components such as roofing, siding, trim, windows, gutters, and driveways. Inspection of interior components includes heating, plumbing, and electrical systems, as well as floors, walls, and ceilings.
The current inspection model is broken, often waiting until after an offer is put in for an inspection to find needed repairs, leading to the negotiation process starting all over again. Pre-listing inspections help you avoid all of that. Our pre-listing inspection lets you schedule an inspection before you put your house on the market. This will let you get ahead of a future buyer’s inspection, and give you time to find a reasonably-priced contractor to fix up your home before you list it. This inspection will only help make selling your home go more smoothly, and most of the time, you’ll get at or above asking price, no matter what the market. All pre-inspections come with a 100% money back guarantee.
New Construction Inspection
Cobblestone Inspections offers new home inspections, also known as a construction or phase inspection. This is an invaluable service for anyone who wants to have a reliable, unbiased professional opinion about the quality and installation practices being utilized during the building process. All phase inspections are done by a past builder who knows exactly what to look for.
11-Month Warranty Inspection
Just because a home is new doesn’t guarantee that everything was built the way it should have been, or that all systems are in good working order. An inspection conducted at 11 months after occupancy allows you to get your builder to address the problems and make repairs before the standard one-year warranty expires.
Investment Property Inspection
Cobblestone’s strong real estate and property management background allows us to provide tailored inspections to meet your needs and help maximize the potential of your investment property.

You’ll enjoy your time away even more knowing your home is safe and in good hands.
Well Flow Testing
A well flow test will help determine if the well or its associated equipment, such as the pump and storage tank, are functioning as they should or if they require further evaluation. All visible components of the well system will be inspected, including the well head, the pressure (storage) tank, the piping and wiring, and the well pump.
Pool & Spa Inspection
Cobblestone offers full pool and spa inspections. We’ll inspect the above ground pipes and equipment for leaks, as well as the pool motors, valves, heaters, filters, lights, and water features, if any. In addition, we’ll examine the decking, coping seal and shell of the pool, along with ground wires, GFCI connections, and safety features.
Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to show homeowners things about their homes that can’t be revealed using conventional inspection methods. Ancillary inspection reports are just as important as the reports you generate for standard home inspections. For something as specialized as a thermal imaging inspection, it’s critical that the information you present meets your clients’ needs for information they can use and act on.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that has the potential to be a dangerous health hazard if it goes undetected. The only way to determine if a home or building has a radon gas problem is through a professional radon test. Cobblestone has inspectors qualified to conduct radon testing.
A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. Sewer-scoping the lateral sewer line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and home buyers to be aware of.
