Direct Inspections is a locally owned and operated company, dedicated to providing you with the best Home Inspection, Wind Mitigation Inspection and Four Point Inspection possible.

While the cost of a home inspection varies from company to company, so does the quality. A lone inspector will surely struggle to provide a detailed review of your entire home. Imagine being tasked to accurately review each of the items in the list above, in the course of 2-3 hours (length of an average inspection). This is why we bring a team.
Once your future home has been inspected by a home inspector, termite inspector, HVAC inspector, roofer and pool inspector, you will rest assured knowing your house has been professionally reviewed. Home inspections do have limits – inspectors cannot see through walls or estimate future occurrences. We strive to provide a detailed overview of the current condition of the property so that you can make an informed decision.
