Best Inspections USA provides warranty coverage on all vital components of the home FREE with every home inspection. We believe in providing exceptional value to our clients and their real estate agents bringing them peace of mind when it matters most!



Our standard home inspection is performed for buyers or sellers and includes a visual evaluation of the structural and mechanical components of a home. This includes, but not limited to Roof, Attic, Crawlspace, Appliances, Plumbing, HVAC, Electrical, Foundation, and much more! All inspections come with our 90-Day warranty coverage, including roof leak coverage for five years as well as mold and sewer protection.


It is often asked if a new house should be inspected. The answer is always YES. Best Inspections USA will work on your behalf to help you create a final list of repairs for your builder. In the process of building a new home, there are multiple subcontractors that enter the worksite and as hard as the Builder tries, they don’t always catch some mistakes made during the build process that can even slip by the City Inspectors. This is where we bridge that gap to ensure your new home is family-safe and move-in-ready.


Our 11-month warranty inspection is a thorough examination of your home, from top to bottom. We'll check for any structural damage, as well as any problems with your home's systems and components. We'll also take a look at your home's exterior, to make sure that everything is in good condition. If we find any problems during our inspection, we'll let you know right away. We'll also provide you with a detailed report of our findings so that you can make the necessary repairs or replacements.


It may be a good idea to have the sewer line on the home you are purchasing scoped to determine if there are any issues. These issues could range from tree roots to broken piping or even complete failure. We use state-of-the-art inspection cameras to view and diagnose the sewer lateral from the house to the street connection. This camera will allow us to determine the type of pipe being used and the condition it is in. Recommendations can then be made after the scope is performed. Repairing or replacing a sewer line can be very costly and this is an inexpensive way to have some peace of mind.


Washington and Idaho regions are known for high levels of radon. Radon is an invisible gas that is tasteless and odorless and it is all around us at any given time. It does not become a problem until it becomes trapped in our homes. It is a leading cause of lung cancer. A simple 48-hour test using an electronic monitoring device can be performed to find out if any action needs to be taken. It is also recommended to be checked often as levels can change seasonally if you don’t already have a mitigation system in place.


Homeowners in Washington and Idaho can rest assured that their water quality is up to par thanks to the water quality analysis inspection conducted by Best Inspections USA. This comprehensive inspection looks at all aspects of water quality, including pH levels, dissolved minerals, and the presence of any contaminants. Best Inspections USA is dedicated to providing homeowners with the peace of mind that comes with knowing their water quality is up to par.

Let Best Inspections USA handle your property inspection so you can make an informed decision.
