First Choice Inspectors Services
Top-to-Bottom General Home Inspections
At First Choice, our goal is to provide complete home inspection services while providing Southern hospitality, straight talk and honest dealings. We specialize in general home inspections for homebuyers. These inspections begin with examining visible and accessible areas of the house, from the roof to the foundation, inside and outside. Trained home inspectors also check all major appliances and systems, such as the electrical system, the plumbing, and the roof.
We include Thermal Imaging in every Top-to-Bottom General Home Inspection. By using a cutting-edge camera for infrared thermography, our home inspectors can detect problems that an unaided eye can miss. These can include such issues as water leaks, pest infestations and much more.
These general inspections collect and document defective or damaged areas of the home, including evidence of water damage and faulty wiring. You deserve to know the condition of the home you’re buying. With the complete inspection report completed by First Choice home inspectors, you’re able to take care of repairs or replacements as appropriate before you actually buy the house.

A listing agent or seller typically wants this service. Providing a thorough assessment of the home, this inspection is completed before your home is listed.

11-Month Warranty Inspections
This is one of the home inspection services that can save money right away. Your new home contract may include a one-year warranty on appliances and major home systems, such as the plumbing. For this inspection, we examine what’s covered by your warranty after 11 months to ensure any issues or defects can be fixed before your warranty expires.
New Construction Inspections
This inspection takes place prior to your last walk-through to ensure that you have no concerns when you move in. Most people take it for granted that their new home is perfect, but newly constructed homes often have more defects than previously-owned ones. Make sure your builder is held responsible for safe and proper construction.
Standalone Deck Inspections
You want to feel confident that your deck can hold heavy and lateral loads. We not only verify that your deck is built to withstand constant use; we also ensure that all the handrails are safe. Protect your family and guests — not to mention your personal property — with a deck inspection.
First Choice inspectors examine the interior, exterior and accessible areas of your chimney — even on the roof. We make sure your chimney is sound and free from obstructions, such as flammable roofing material debris. Chimney fires burn hot, but slowly. You may not even be aware of it until it’s too late. A chimney inspection reduces your chances of a cataclysmic fire.
We assess your roofing material, whether it’s made of tiles or shingles, which can blow off, blister or curl, rendering them ineffective. Your roof is your first line of defense against intrusive water damage. We also check all roof appliances — like swamp coolers, heaters and air conditioners. These home inspection services make sure your home is in working order before you move in.
Mold and Allergen Inspections
Mold causes respiratory health problems, especially for children and the elderly. Detecting mold and the conditions causing allergens keeps your home safe. Any mold specimens found are sent to a lab to determine the type of mold. Once it’s identified, the mold can be treated to remove it and to keep it from returning.

These inspections provide you with real advice for saving energy and money by optimizing your new home for maximum efficiency. We inspect the general insulation, the energy-conserving properties of the windows, the HVAC system for energy efficiency and the energy ratings of the water heater and other plumbing appliances. We also search for places where heat or cold air can escape, such around doors and windows. The report generated by this inspection gives you a list of money-saving actions to take.
First Choice will fly a camera drone over your home and property to ensure the roof is sound. Drone photos can spot particular issues that an inspector can’t otherwise find. Also, drone photography gives you a bird’s eye view of your property.
