Whether it’s your first condo or dream home, at Bright Skies Home Inspections, we conduct reliable, timely and thorough home inspections.


Any quality home inspection service performed by Bright Skies comes at competitive and budget friendly prices.  We provide the following professional, thorough, licensed, budget-conscious home inspections for clients.

Pre-Listing Inspection

This inspection will eliminate all the pitfalls and hassles associated with waiting to do the home inspection until a buyer is found. These inspections are easier to schedule and are not under the time constraints of a sales agreement’s inspection contingencies. A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller and can be used as a marketing tool.

General Pre-Purchase Inspections

Our general home inspections, which follow the industry standards, include review of the structure, roof, attic, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, heating systems, cooling systems, electrical, plumbing, drainage, appliances, and attached garages. Following our inspection, we provide a comprehensive report, with photos, available usually within 24 hours of the inspection.

New Home Inspections

Buying a new home is a significant purchase, especially because you are moving into a home that is untested. By identifying issues with the home’s components while the builder is still on the hook, the value of an independent inspection performed prior to taking ownership is significant. A new home inspection is performed shortly before the final inspection walk through with your builder so you can discuss items that were identified by an expert as potential issues. A written report is provided to the buyer within 24 hours so you can discuss the issues with confidence.

One-Year Warranty Inspections

Builders typically provide a one-year express warranty on major systems and components in new houses. Having an independent professional engineer review these systems prior to the expiration of the warranty can save a home owner significant costs for potential future repairs or maintenance.

Single Family Homes

An inspection of a single family home will include the outside, all living levels in side, the attic if accessible, and the basement. In addition, detached structures on the property also can be inspected.

Multi-Family Homes
Part of owning a multi-family property is proper planning. Multi-family properties like any property need care and maintenance. Bright Skies Home Inspection will provide you the information you need to plan for the future of your investment.

Condo / Townhouses
We will inspect the interior of the condo. In addition, when the common areas, roof, and utility rooms are available for review and investigation they are also inspected.


We systematically and carefully examine the property. Typically we begin with the exterior and go through a pre-formulated procedure that ensures every component of the property is carefully examined. Following the inspection (within 24 hours) you will receive a detailed and comprehensive report with pictures illustrating various items, repair/replace needs, and/or other defects observed in the course of the inspection.
