Residential Home Inspections
America’s Best Inspections has been serving DMV residents for many years. We provide home inspections for first-time buyers, sellers, homeowners, and anyone who just wants to know more about their home or plan renovations.
Our inspections are performed in accordance with NACHI’s Standards of Practice as well as standards of practice set forward by the American Society of Home Inspectors. These two home inspection authorities are the most recognized and respected organizations for home inspectors in North America.
America’s Best Inspections will give you an accurate assessment of your home’s condition. We’ll help you understand which problems need to be addressed before the sale and which ones can wait. We help you get the information you need to be able to negotiate a fair price.

*Inspectors will walk the roof on a case by case basis depending on the pitch and access conditions. If inspectors are not able to physically walk on the roof, they will inspect from the ground using binoculars and from within the attic. All home inspectors are equipped with a 14 ft ladder. A larger ladder may be requested during scheduling for an additional fee.
