Enhanced Property Inspection

Most homes buyers in California expect to see a home inspection report and now BPN is offering an Enhanced Property Inspection.  BPN provides an in depth analysis that includes an inspection of the home’s systems.  Our inspectors are BPI certified, which allows us a deeper understanding of what is or isn’t working properly, giving a prospective buyer/ seller a more complete vision of the home.  Below is a look into the future of a coming trend that BPN is using  NOW when performing an enhanced inspection on your home.

The system currently in place is about to change and the Building Performance Network is implementing the “Whole House Approach” philosophy into a typical home inspection -NOW!  California is leading the way by mandating 2014 Code compliance & BPI’s www.bpi.org auditing standards using an open, transparent, consensus-based process using sound building science and will be requiring a “Whole Home Audit” performing diagnostic testing to ensure the SAFETY, COMFORT and EFFICIENCY before any home is bought or sold in California (after 2014).  Doesn’t it just makes sense for a home buyer to know what they are really getting when making the large investment of  a home purchase?  Now you can.

Enhanced Property Inspections:  a new twist that includes “Building Performance Analysis” from above as well as a typical property inspection covering: STRUCTURAL, ROOFING, EXTERIOR, ELECTRICAL, HEATING, COOLING & HEAT PUMPS, INSULATION / VENTILATION, PLUMBING, WATER HEATER, INTERIOR, KITCHEN/APPLIANCES, AIR QUALITY, ASBESTOS, LEAD PAINT, MOLD, SEPTIC, TERMITES, WATER QUALITY, ETC.

*adoption of this inspection service will be mandatory of any home bought or sold in California after 2014*
