AMERICAN BUILDING INSPECTORS, INC.
You've Found the Best Inspector in Northeast Ohio
FULL HOME INSPECTIONA home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. I’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.
WDO TERMITE INSPECTIONWood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later.
RADON GAS TESTAlthough radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.
COMMERCIAL BUILDING INSPECTIONA commercial building inspection is an important step when buying or selling a commercial property. It offers valuable insights into the property’s condition and can reveal any potential issues that may require attention. Our thorough inspection examines the property and building, from the inside out, and top to bottom, to provide you with the information you need to make a well-informed decision in your commercial real estate transaction.
PRE-DRYWALL INSPECTIONOne way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.
NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTIONAre you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.
PRE-LISTING INSPECTION / SELLER INSPECTIONAre you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.
11-MONTH WARRANTY INSPECTION FOR NEW HOMESThe 11-month warranty inspection for new homes involves a comprehensive evaluation of the entire house, from the foundation to the roof, and everything in between. This inspection is specifically designed for homes still under warranty and aims to identify any unresolved issues before the warranty expires. I will provide a detailed and easy-to-understand report that will help you negotiate with the builder to make the necessary repairs or replacements.

My Promise To You
Choosing the right property inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing.
Ultimately, a thorough property inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new property, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
This, I promise you.
