At Inspector Holmes Home Inspections Services, we provide comprehensive home inspections in Wake and surrounding County including, Harnett, Johnston, Durham, Orange, and Lee County. Our vision is to inspect every home in The Raleigh Triangle Area!
Our core values are Education, Integrity and Craftsmanship. Each of these values are evident in our partnership with homeowners, realtors, buyers and sellers. We have learned the difference between a house and a home. As the founder, I have been on every end of a real estate transaction, from buying to selling, from framer to builder, from architect to engineer. Each has its role, but none more important than the hands and feet of the homeowner, who truly make it a home.
Our home inspection covers all the “Standards of Practice” required by the Licensing Board of North Carolina, including a detailed Multi-Point Inspection Report going past the basic inspection to include Videos of identified concerns around the home. For example
· Structural Components
· Plumbing Systems
· Air Conditioning
· Insulation and Ventilation
· Built-In Kitchen Appliances
I utilize a detailed comprehensive program that incorporates as many of the requests of the buyer, plus much more. I work through what's called a System by System Inspection including a multi-point check list, so that every room I'm looking at, I'm looking at the complete room, including the plumbing, electrical, HVAC, the structure, the functionality of each room and all of a finished surfaces throughout the house. This allows me to record my findings with words, pictures and video’s, organize the data in a manner that is efficient and easily understood by the prospective homeowner and making myself available to the buyer after every home inspection to answer each question.
A pre-drywall inspection is designed to happen just prior to the insulation being installed. The purpose for it is that all the contractors finished their trades to the point where your Electrician, Plumbing, HVAC and Framing have passed there inspections and it gives you an opportunity to see what's going on inside the walls before they cover them over and to verify that everything was done in the proper manner as intended.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert radioactive gas. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. It can be found in all 50 states. Testing for it is the only way of telling how much is present. It's been found to be the second largest cause of lung cancer today. Levels of Radon can be detected using a device placed in the home to calculate the amount of Radon in the home.
A healthy home check is designed to help existing homeowners fully understand their home. This is the same type of inspection as if you were to buy the house, so you'll have a complete understanding of the home your living in, giving you a better understanding of the health, maintenance and safety of your home today.
New Home Bundle includes the pre-drywall inspection, the final inspection and a radon test and give a $100 discount when paid in full at the first inspection.
Welcome, I’m Inspector David Holmes,
For 31 years I have built homes for some of the Triangle’s Nicest Home Owners. Now I am your Inspector for your homes. I made a decision a few years back to become a home inspector. I entered the home inspection industry with the same goals that I had when I started Holmes Construction in 1988, to look out for the home owner’s investment and to do the best job I can for all my home owners in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area.
I treat every inspection as if the CEO of my life, my granddaughter, will be experiencing each of her memorable moments there. With hands on knowledge and thirty-one years of field experience, tools and training has prepared me to analyze, assess and inform my clients to the issues that should be addressed prior to your real estate purchase, sell or maintenance prevention.
