What We Do

As Arizona Certified home inspectors, AccuPro Inspection Services will inspect the structure and every major subsystem of your home in compliance with the Arizona Standards of Professional Practices.  Your inspection will take about 2½ to 4 hours depending on the size and age of the home and include a complete visual, non-destructive inspection of the following:

  • Structural Components:  Foundation, floors, walls, columns, ceilings and roofs
  • Exterior:  Wall cladding, soffit and trim; entryway doors and windows; garage door and operators; decks, balconies, stoops, steps, walkways, porches and railings

Throughout the inspection, the inspector will record his observations into a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) so that he will be sure to capture all of the information on the spot.   We use a full narrative report format, rather than a simple check box style, to provide you with a complete and thorough description of our inspection.  In addition, we will take digital photos when necessary to further explain and illustrate our findings.  

You are not only welcome, but also encouraged, to join the inspector so that he can point out the actual findings and explain his recommendations.  When completed, the inspector will load the information from the PDA and the camera into a laptop computer to provide you with a complete, 25-35 page printed report on the spot!  If you cannot be there for the inspection, or if you simply prefer electronic format, AccuPro can provide you with the report for download or viewing via the Internet.  Your report is password secured so that only you can access it, unless you authorize us to provide that information to your agent.
