Not all inspections are created equal. At Tyee, our background in every facet of home building gives us the edge. We know and deliver the information you need to make an informed buying decision. Our background in Contracting, Structural Design and Project Development provides the experience to complete thorough building inspections and gives you the confidence you need to either follow through with a purchase or find a different home.
Our reports are concise and easy to understand and combined with photo's of defective areas. Many of our competitors reports are so full of fluff that can be very overwhelming and difficult to understand that you will fall asleep after the first page. To the inspector writing these novels, I believe it makes them feel more knowledgeable but we aren't writing novels. Would you rather receive the information you need in 50 pages or 25? The goal of any inspection report is to inform the buyer and we do so in a simple and easy to understand format.

Inspections can vary in type and size of the building. We offer two types of pre-offer inspections, also called a pre-inspection, verbal and hand written. These are used in a highly competitive market where many offers are made without contingencies. Pre-inspections cover major systems of a building and report on major defects that could cost a buyer a lot of money.
A pre-listing inspection and mutual acceptance inspection are generally what we call full report inspections. Full reports are highly detailed and focus on every area of the home that is visible. Descriptions of defects are no limited to just major defects and pictures are included of defective areas.
Please contact us for information on commercial and multi-family building inspections as we have options for those as well.
How much is an inspection? Well costs vary and depend on the type of inspection and the size of the building. Please call, email or text for pricing.
