Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. We're here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will provide you with detailed, unbiased information.

We'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

We used Callahan Inspection Services for a house we are purchasing. Austin was extremely thorough with the inspection. Everything was looked over and we were able to make a decision on things that needed to be addressed and things that we could fix ourselves at a later time. Austin found a safety issue with the deck which resulted in it's replacement. I highly recommend Callahan Inspection Services, and would not hesitate to use their services again on a future purchase.

We were in a rush to get a potential home inspected during the buying process. Timing was everything due to the current competitive market. Austin made it out early the next day on very short notice which was huge. Austin also showed up right on time and got to work, and my report was delivered just a few hours later. Payment was also easy and at a fair price. I'd highly reccomend this company and would use them again in the future.

I highly recommend Austin ! We needed a home inspection sooner then we thought he responded so fast and was available that weekend. On time? No ahead of time for our scheduled appointment! His inspection was very detailed, pictures were clear and I was able to understand the final inspection. I had many questions and he answered every one I had for him.
