In Maine the home inspectors of

North Country Home Inspections

specialize in one thing only ......

Home Inspections!!

Think of us as general practitioners.  Our job is to examine the entire home and all of its systems and give you an evaluation with our recommendations.

Sometimes we may recommend consulting a plumber,  an electrician, a structural engineer, a pest control specialist or some other expert about a particular problem that is uncovered.  If you were to initially hire all of these experts individually to come in and inspect for their area of expertise, the total cost of the inspections would run into the thousands of dollars.

Often, we can save you money in the event that we find a condition that the homeowner was unaware.  For example, if we discover that the roof has some cracked rafters due to the heavy snow loads from the previous winter, the homeowner may be willing to get the roof fixed at their expense.  Or you could negotiate a lower price and have it repaired yourself, after the home was purchased.  Similar situations occur all the time and it is our job to spot them when they exist.  We consider ourselves to be experts in general home inspections and therefore our full inspections include the following:

Our Full Inspections include:

  • Roof, vents, flashings, and trim.
  • Gutters and downspouts.
  • Skylight, chimney and other roof penetrations.
