Wherever you are in your real estate transaction, WIN Home Inspection Charlottesville can help. WIN Charlottesville provides a thorough, objective analysis of your home whether you are a homeowner, buyer or seller from a Pre-Listing Inspection to a Full Home Inspection.
A WIN full home inspection is a visual, non-invasive inspection of many different components of the home using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology. We bring care and compassion to each inspection, and a consultative approach focused on solutions.
During the inspection, your highly trained and certified home inspector will examine the home and major systems including site, foundation, roofing, exterior, interior, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC where accessible and safe to do so. A detailed, visual, and easy-to-read report complete with recommendations for maintenance and repair will be delivered within 24 hours (often the same day).
Many home sellers opt for a pre-listing inspection prior to placing their home on the market. Along with providing a professional and personalized evaluation of the home, WIN Home Inspectors deliver a detailed home inspection report that includes recommendations for repairs and next steps. This report allows home sellers to make repairs and address issues early, which can improve home value and even help the home sell faster!
WIN Home Inspectors have the training and experience to provide essential home inspection services for homes of all types and ages. We’ve got you covered with personalized inspection for condominium, townhome, duplex, and manufactured home inspection. The thorough home inspection and easy-to-read report will cover the home and major systems, but some common areas controlled by the homeowner's association may fall outside of the inspection scope.
WIN Home Inspection provides home buyer consultations for homes that have already been inspected by WIN. We will review and explain the home inspection report and answer any questions you may have.

A One Year Anniversary home inspection is performed approximately 30 days before the expiration of the builder's one-year new home warranty to address any warranty-related concerns that you may want to bring to the builder's attention and allows time for any necessary repairs before the warranty expires.
A Move In home inspection is ideal when your newly constructed home is finished and ready for occupancy, but prior to the final walk through by the builder. You get critical information about your new home prior to closing, giving the builder time to make any necessary corrections before the purchase is finalized.
In a hot housing market, a verbal consultation can be a valuable tool for home buyers looking for a fast close. During a verbal consultation, a professional WIN Home Inspector will conduct an on-site consultation covering the major components of the home. This process will include a walk-through of the home with a verbal overview, tips for maintenance and repair, and a final debrief.
A Pre-Drywall Inspection identifies any issues in a new construction home before the drywall is installed. We thoroughly evaluate the framing of the structure as well as the rough in work completed for all the major systems in the home. If issues exist, a Pre-Drywall Inspection can help uncover them and provide suggestions on how to correct them before it’s too late or costly.

Radon is an odorless, colorless, and naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause serious health issues over time. It is the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and is only detectable through testing. A trained WIN professional uses state-of-the-art equipment to check radon levels in the home, which can be mitigated once identified.
Homes that rely on private wells are at risk of radon exposure from elevated levels of radon in groundwater. Radon-in-water testing check drinking water for health and safety, in partnership with accredited laboratories.
Problems with the septic tank can lead to sewage backup, structural damage, and health issues. In a standard septic inspection by your WIN Home Inspector, all the visible components of the septic system are examined and a dye test is performed to check for leaks.
Hidden issues in sewer lines can cause flooding, mold, structural damage, and result in serious health problems. Highly trained WIN Home Inspectors use specialize, state-of-the-art equipment to check sewer lines for tree roots, cracks, and blockages, while providing recommendations for needed maintenance and repairs.
Water contaminants such as bacteria and nitrates can cause serious health issues and even structural damage to the home water system. WIN Home Inspection professionals partner with accredited laboratories to test the water quality in the home and protect home and health.
Well Flow Testing (also known as 'well pump performance') by a trained WIN Home Inspector checks for needed repairs or adjustments to a home’s water flow. During the test, the inspector will determine the rate at which the home well is able to supply a steady flow of water and simulate normal water usage to help identify any issues.
Mold growth in the home can cause serious structural damage and pose a threat to human health. Trained WIN Home Inspectors check for hidden mold growth using specialized equipment to collect air samples, and can also provide mold surface sample testing for visible mold issues. We partner with accredited laboratories to provide professional and fast test results to home owners, buyers, and sellers.
Some potential issues in the home, such as missing insulation or overloaded electrical circuits are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared (IR) thermography allows WIN Home Inspectors to help identify otherwise hidden issues using innovative technology. Once identified, these issues can be proactively addressed, which can result in lower energy bills and a safer home.
