Our Home Inspections
Freedom Express Home Inspections meets and exceeds the Oklahoma Standards of Practice for Home Inspectors. As a home inspector my concerns are always the client and his or her needs when purchasing a home. I like to use the Navy term Stem to Stern as we inspect all drainage in relationship to foundation stability, from the foundation to the roof with all structural and mechanical items in between.
All built in appliances are operated according to MFG specifications the heating units are operated reguardless of outside ambient temperatures, cooling units are not operated with an outside ambient below 60 degrees as per MFG recommendations.
We inspect all aspects of the exterior of your home possible. We walk on 95% of roofs to provide you with clear, accurate information. Our inspection of the exterior includes:
- and Exterior Doors
For budget expectations we supply dates of MFG for water heaters, heating and cooling units along with an national average life expectancy for the specific type of equipment. Keep in mind Home Inspectors do not have crystal balls and any mechanical equipment is subject to failure at any given point in time.All plumbing systems are subjected to heavy use during the 3 to 4 hour process of inspection to determine proper flow and or blockage. Components include:
- Heating and Cooling
- Drain lines
- a\Water supply lines
- Electric panel
- Circuit wiring
- service wires
- water heater
Interiors and Structure
On the interior of the home we spend a great deal of time exploring the areas of your home that other inspectors may miss. In our inspection we thoroughly check all of the following items and more:
- Roof Framing
- Bearing Walls
- Doors and windows
Infrared technology is used for moisture intrusion from shower pans , roof flashing, electrical panels.
We utilize this technology because the naked eye alone will not find all of the issues that may be lurking behind your walls.
On our thermal scans we are able to find air leaks, water leaks, pests, and even at times possible framing issues.
Don’t settle for anything less than a comprehensive home inspection from Freedom Express Inspections!
