Three 17 Inspections
Professional Home Inspections
Purchasing a new home also means buying that home’s problems. With a home inspection, you can see exactly what you’re buying. Problems discovered during the inspection could allow you to renegotiate to offset the costs of repairs — potentially saving you thousands of dollars.
Why Do You Need A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is still incredibly helpful because we are trained to notice things that most people simply are not aware of. As your inspector, I bring the necessary training and expertise to assess any problems I encounter. In addition, it’s easy to become attached to a home before you’ve committed to purchasing it. This makes it difficult to see hidden problems. That is why it’s advisable to have an inspector assess the condition of the home.
Existing Home Inspections
Existing Home Inspections
This is an exciting time for you. Don’t let undiscovered problems destroy what should be your new beginning. These undiscovered problems can cost you tens of thousands in repairs.
New Construction Inspections
Homes are constructed in the blink of an eye. Builders are always up against the clock because time is money — and a lot of it. Workers are human, and when they are under pressure mistakes will happen.
New Home Pre-Drywall Inspections
Many issues can be hidden beneath the drywall and insulation from wiring issues to structural problems all of which can lead to big problems down the road.

My wife and I used Aaron for our home inspection, and he was Amazing. He is very thorough and precise in everything he does. He is very professional and reliable.

Aaron did our new home inspection in May 2021, what a thorough inspection. Communicated the findings with a follow up call to explain all findings and which items needed attention before the move in and which items could wait. Would recommend Aaron to anyone needing a home inspection done, you will NOT be disappointed with his services.

Aaron was super nice and very thorough. He called us right away to introduce himself and open the line of communication. The amount of work and detail he put into our new build is so thoughtful and we are very appreciative. He truly found things we would never have thought of and that we needed to know and report back. I highly recommend getting your own inspection when getting your home and I recommend calling Aaron to do it.

Aaron was very thorough with his inspection, and prompt with communication! My husband and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.
We used Three 17 Inspections for our New Construction home after the builder advised it was completed. We wanted them to check the overall status of the house and especially help us with areas of our home that we’re not knowledgeable enough to know if something is correct or not. Aaron (Three 17 Inspections) was extremely thorough, patient and experienced. He exceeded our expectations so much, that we are proud to refer Aaron to anyone we meet that is in need of an inspection worth it’s price and more.
Aaron conducted the inspection for the buyers who purchased my ex-wife’s and my house. She told me he was very professional and respectful with her and did not provide extreme requests for simple repairs for the sellers. He provided his card and she gave it to me, as I am buying locally. I contacted him to do my pre-drywall and final inspection. Very professional and nice when speaking with him. If I decide to do a 1-year inspection, will probably contact him again for that!! Thank you, Aaron!
I have had a few of these over the years and Aaron’s was the most comprehensive report I have personally seen, very happy with his work!!

Why People Choose Us
We will not take shortcuts. We will not skip a step because it is difficult. We take our time because you deserve to have your inspection performed correctly.
We take responsibility for our inspections and our word. We understand that our clients should be protected by any issues.
We are committed to our clients. Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions, and we take that very seriously. We want you to feel confident moving forward.
Your inspection includes the following:
Top to bottom — inside and out — and everything in between. We are looking for how the house is performing so you and your realtor know what items need to be addressed.
Check faucets and showers, looking for visible leaks as well as testing water pressure. Identify the types of pipes used. Identify and inspect the water meter, and main water shutoff valve.
Test smoke detectors and ensure that the garage wall, if present, has the proper fire rating and is undamaged. Also check the fireplace for proper installation and maintenance.
Check for possible foundation failure, indicated by cracks or settling. Check to ensure that the ground slopes away from the house, which prevents water from entering the house or causing damage to the foundation.
Determine functionality of the water heater and check for proper installation. We can also determine the condition and possibly give an estimated remaining life span of the unit.
Determine functionality of the heating, air conditioning and ventilation system. Recommend repairs or maintenance.
Check all permanent appliances for proper functionality including the dishwasher, oven & cooktop, microwave oven, and food waste disposal. All mechanical exhausts are also inspected including the dryer exhaust — a poorly ventilated dryer exhaust can be a serious fire hazard.
If possible, check for structural damage and proper ventilation. Also check insulation and ensure that nothing is ventilated directly into the attic, such as the bathroom.
Check for damaged or missing siding, cracks, and excessive soil contact which can be an invitation for pests.
Test the garage door for proper functionality, check for proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, and check for risks of explosion from ignition sources too close to the floor.
Check for visible roof damage or poor installation that may allow for water penetration. Inspect the condition of the gutters.
Check for visible leaks, properly secured toilets, proper ventilation to prevent moisture related issues, and more.
Identify the type of wiring, test all outlets and make sure there are GFCIs installed where needed to protect from electrical shock. Inspect the electrical panel for safety issues and fire hazards.
From termites, wood-destroying beetles, carpenter ants, and more, we can ensure your investment has been checked for all kinds of WDIs. Termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year according to the NPMA — a cost typically not covered by homeowners’ insurance.
Pools are a fun and attractive feature, but they also come with a lot of responsibility. Equipment that is improperly connected can be a serious safety hazard. Improperly used and stored chemicals can become a serious health hazard and can cause potential property damage.
Home inspections are non-invasive. This means we will not dismantle components. Why? Taking items apart can potentially damage components, and only qualified and licensed professionals should examine and diagnose systems in deep detail.
