Home Inspections

Our home inspection is a visual examination of the readily accessible components of a home.  Huffman Inspections performs an examination of the property per the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) Standards of Practice including:

  • General Home Inspection

    A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property. Evaluation of the major home systems including HVAC, electrical, plumbing,& roof, their essential components as well as their function, especially where their failure can result in dangerous conditions or expensive repairs is our primary focus. The attic, exterior, grounds and draining, interior rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, garage and foundation are areas included in this inspection. Any defects in these systems will be clearly described, and the report will include repair recommendations and photographs. Maintenance deficiencies will be addressed and future maintenance recommendations will be provided. Read More...


    No home is perfect, not even a newly constructed home. Over the past 20 years we have been in business, a professionally conducted home inspection has become standard procedure in a Real Estate transaction. An experienced home inspector knows how the home’s many systems and components interact and work together. A primary purpose of the inspection is to educate the buyer about the home they are purchasing. Huffman Inspections encourages the buyer to attend the home inspection. Attending the inspection provides an important opportunity for the buyer to learn firsthand how their prospective new home works.

    During a resale home inspection, the primary focus is on the condition and functionality of the numerous components of the existing home.
    Huffman Inspections Colorado, Inc., records observations during your inspection on a Motion Tablet PC. This assures a comprehensive inspection meeting the highest professional standards. This system enables us to give you a full and extensive report on site describing the components of the home on site.

    Our home inspection is a visual examination of the components of a home per the InterNACHI Standards of Practice. Huffman Inspections, Inc. performs a thorough examination of the property, including (but not necessarily limited to):

    • Siting and Drainage
    • Utilities
    • Exterior – roof, walls, doors, & windows
    • Electrical system
    • Plumbing – supply, drainage, & fixtures
    • Water heater
    • Heating & cooling
    • Insulation
    • Structure
    • Major Appliances
    • Attic & Crawl spaces

    We report the conditions observed during the inspection both verbally and in our computer generated report. The report includes photos of the areas of concern when verbal descriptions typically raise questions. The report is presented in a three ring binder which includes additional homeowner information and maintenance tips. We also furnish the buyer’s agent with an “executive summary” that gives an overview of the home and observations made at the inspection.

  • Seller’s Pre-Listing Inspection

    Eventually, your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.  Having an inspection performed ahead of time is beneficial in order to alert you to immediate safety issues before agents and potential buyers tour your home, allow you the opportunity to make needed repairs ahead of time so that defects won’t become stumbling blocks for negotiations later, and may help alleviate a buyers concerns and suspicions.

  • New Construction

    Many assume that because a home has passed all local building inspections, it must be in good shape. Unfortunately, even a new home can have flaws, sometimes major ones. The fact is, construction workers occasionally make mistakes, and some have even tried to disguise the problem instead of fixing it properly. A home inspection can detect errors and allows you to negotiate with the builder in order to get them corrected before you take ownership of the property. An inspector is your last line of defense against major defects.

  • Insurance Inspection

    Huffman Inspections performs inspections for homeowners and HOAs, helping them evaluate severe weather damage to their properties. Hail and wind can damage roof coverings including shingles, tiles and membranes as well as walls, breaking and chipping wall claddings such as vinyl siding, stucco, EIFS and other materials. Our team can inspect the damage and review the storm event to help you achieve a proper adjustment for the weather damage to your property following a severe storm.

  • 1-Year Warranty

    Congratulations on your upcoming one year anniversary in your new house. More than likely you had a home inspection done before you bought the home, but now that you’ve lived there for almost a year, it’s time for another home inspection. Many times a problem arises with the home before the first year is up, but a lot of homeowners don’t realize there’s a problem until after the first year mark has passed. Obviously, discovering warranty issues is the biggest benefit to a one year home inspection. Once any warranty issues have been detected, you can get the builder out to fix them.
