What Services We Offer

Buyers Inspections

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

Sewer Scopes Inspections

A sewer scope is an inspection of the lateral sewer lines from the house at or close to the foundation to the city sewer, HOA tap, and/or the septic tank. Sewer scoping can help homeowners and homebuyers identify potential problems with their sewer systems. A sewer scope operator uses a camera to view the insides of the sewer lines to determine if there are any cracks, bellying, damages, clogs, or debris. Save yourself thousands of dollars by getting a sewer scope before buying a house!

Radon Testing

Radon is colorless and odorless, and it is extremely carcinogenic. According to the EPA, radon is one of the leading contributors to the development of lung cancer, behind only smoking. For this reason, regular radon testing is key whether you’re a homeowner, or you’re interested in purchasing a home.

Water Quality Testing

A water quality test is performed by an inspector who looks for contaminants in the water supply. While public water systems must test and treat their water before distributing it, these tests only cover water that hasn't left the treatment plant. Before your water enters your home’s supply line, it travels through miles of pipes. Some of these pipes might be in poor condition or they could contain lead. The inspector checks for pH levels, fluoride levels (which may be too high), mineral contaminants (including iron, arsenic, and lead), and heavy metals.

Thermal Imaging

The purpose of an infrared scan is to find hidden issues and catch them before they become a major problem. Thermal imaging is an advanced & newer technology that inspectors use to get temperature details about a home, and assess how protected against environmental elements the home is.

The Best Modern Report in the Industry​

Cardinal Home Inspections is a locally owned and operated inspection company providing quality inspections since 2009. A graduate of Widefield High School in Colorado Springs and Fort Lewis College in Durango, I started in building supply in 2004. Gaining knowledge of all construction aspects through supply and construction management, I decided to turn my focus to inspections in 2009. Certified through InterNACHI, inspection services are held to the highest standards of ethics within the industry. During the inspection process, I encourage clients to follow, ask questions, and be a part of the inspection itself. Ensuring that you have the information needed and peace of mind in the home you are purchasing is of the utmost importance. After the inspection is completed you will receive a detailed report (no later than the following morning) displaying concerns, maintenance, and repairs needed to the property. I take great pride in helping you make the most informed decision possible on your new home.
