The Most Detailed Home Inspection Available
Welcome to Spectrum Inspection Group,
Home of the “Advanced Scope Inspection™”
Since becoming established in 1998 in Las Vegas and with more than 40,000 residential home inspections performed to date Spectrum Inspection Group is one of the oldest and most respected home inspection firms in the Las Vegas Valley.
Not a franchise and not a “mom and pop” organization, we have multiple inspectors whose backgrounds range from former custom home builders to retired nuclear engineers. We’ve received the Honor Roll award from the Better Business Bureau of Southern Nevada on multiple occasions because of the high quality of our work and our attention to detail. Every home is inspected with the same level of depth and detail we would provide if we were buying the home ourselves.
Our “Advanced Scope Inspection™” means that we review more components and provide greater depth and detail than the typical real property inspection. This means we offer our clients more useful and meaningful information that will allow them to make intelligent, informed decisions to better protect themselves. We have recently added thermographic imaging equipment to our arsenal allowing us to discover issues that most other inspectors just can’t see and won’t find. We do not charge an additional fee for using our thermal imaging equipment.
Most home inspection reports in Las Vegas provide the consumer with ambiguous disclosures of problem or issue found in the course of the inspection i.e. “The roof appears serviceable”. This type of disclosure is of little value to the average consumer. In every report we produce our disclosures are specific and not written utilizing industry jargon. Every finding in our reports includes four key elements;
- A description of the issue or problem.
- An accurate description of the location of the problem or issue.
- Discussion about the ramifications of the problem or issue.
- A course of action or path of resolution for addressing the problem or issue.
Every finding has at least one associated photograph; many finding have multiple photographs (see our example report), and since our job is to ensure the client has a full understanding of the property condition we also include disclosures about the positive features of the home. The home is fully profiled telling the client everything from what kind of roof is installed to where the water heater is located and its’ capacity.
When a client retains our service they also obtain a level of commitment that is unsurpassed in our industry. If needed we restore water service to the home, de-winterize the home, light water heaters, fireplace pilot lights and furnaces. We fully traverse all accessible roofing and attic areas. And we never review only a “representative number” of issues like most Las Vegas home inspections. We review all accessible components. And if the seller performs repairs to issues disclosed in our report we will come back to the home to review the work and make sure it was repaired properly. There truly is no inspection in all of Southern Nevada that is more comprehensive.
