Buyer's Property Inspection
This is an inspection performed for the buyer of a property, and helps establish what may need to be repaired or replaced prior to moving in. This allows you, the buyer, to negotiate the best price for your home or business.
Seller’s Property Inspection
A seller’s inspection is performed for a current owner who is interested in selling their property. This inspection gives the seller an examination of the building and focuses on issues that may affect the perceived value of your property. This allows you, the seller, to accelerate the sale of your home or business.
A system inspection is a focused evaluation of a specific system (such as the roofing, plumbing, exterior siding, foundation, or electrical, etc.) This service can be performed for contractors, renovators, or homeowners so they can have a thorough and accurate evaluation of the system.
An infrared, or thermal, inspection can be a vital part of the property inspection process. The device pictured, called a Thermal Imaging Camera, can help the inspector catch hidden deficiencies in building. It can detect active water leaks in hidden areas, track where the building has significant energy loss, and can help detect loose connections in electrical equipment.
Radon is a gas is a naturally occurring element. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Testing for radon involves placing a small box in the building that samples the air. A radon test lasts 48 hours for a real estate transaction. This is extremely valuable in determining if a property is the right fit for you.

- Caution or Routine Maintenance
- These items are going to appear blue in your report. When you see this symbol, it means that there is an item or system of your home that needs attention. It may not need attention now, but may in the future. It could also mean that you need to monitor the situation for future developments. It is considered the lowest priority symbol your report.

All Points Home Inspection does not offer any services other than the ones listed above (such as radon testing, sewer scoping, or drone flights). Our company is a progressive business and is always evolving. This website will be updated as soon as any other services become available.
An Oregon Certified Home Inspector does not evaluate whether or not a building meets local code requirements. The primary focus of a home inspector is to provide you, the customer, a clear and accurate picture of how your home functions; and if there are systems that need to be addressed prior to buying or selling.
If you have questions about whether or not your building is up to code, contact the Building Codes Division of Oregon at this website.
