Your home is the biggest investment you will probably make in a lifetime! Many buyers are interested in securing there investment with documentation by a licensed inspector who can find deficiencies in a home before they make the purchase. At Oak Mountain Home Inspections, we are focused on providing quality services with the highest levels of customer satisfaction – we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
Since 2007, I have offered a limited visual, non-invasive inspection of the desired residential property (Structural, Electrical, Plumbing, Water Infiltration, Kitchen Appliances, Fences, Grounds, Exterior, Interior, Doors, Windows, Garage, Decks, Porches, HVAC, Water Heater, Plumbing Leaks, Visible HVAC Air Duct Leaks, Foundation Issues, Wall Issues, Floor Issues, Efflorescence, Gas Leaks, etc...). The inspection is a non-invasive inspection of the systems and condition of the Residential Single Family Home (1 & 2 Bedroom Houses). We make recommendations in our computerized report for a professional based on the findings from the inspection. Software is a professionally created software specifically made for Residential Home Inspections. The inspection will typically take 3-5 hours and you are welcome to attend if you wish, but it is not necessary for you to be there. You may want to bring a chair if the home is unfurnished. I use professional equipment during the inspection including AEMC Instruments Moisture Meter, TIF & TPI Combustible Gas Meters, Fluke Carbon Monoxide Gas Detector, Water Pressure Guage, Non-contact Electricity Detector, AC Voltage Clamp Meter, AC/DC Volt Meter, GFCI Receptacle Testers, and AFCI Receptacle Testers, digital cameras (Canon, Olympus, FujiFilm), digital voice recorder (Olympus), Gauss Meter, Laser Temperature Guage, digital Thermometers, BAR Activekey. I usually walk the roof if possible. I do not find it necessary to survey the roof or property with a Helicopter Drone as I can image the exterior with the digital camera. I do not use a Thermal Imaging Device due to the current legal issues of using one in Alabama. I can shoot video with all of my digital cameras if needed.

** September 2016 Inspection Times: Due to the hot temps outside, I would prefer to start the inspection at 8 a.m. or earlier, up to 10 a.m at the latest. You do not need to be present at the inspection but I will need the security code (if alarmed) and real estate key code from your realtor. I do carry the BAR code key if the house has a BAR key.
We offer a professional computer generated report with pictures within 24 hours of inspection completion.
If we missed a problem with the home, we will return to the home and inspect the problem and update your report free of charge. The inspector is licensed in the State of Alabama, license # HI-2016 and is in good standing membership with ASHI, American Society of Home Inspectors, InterNACHI (International Associaton of Certified Home Inspectors), ASHI South, and the Birmingham Association of Realtors.
