The Fidelity Way
In 1997 the standards for building inspections in Washington State just didn’t exist. At that time Rod was a general contractor and was repeatedly asked by home and business owners to help repair some terrible disaster that had occurred because the inspector had missed it. Fidelity Building Inspections was created because Rod believes it’s just plain wrong that people get stuck with expensive surprises they could have avoided if they had been warned in advance. Today we work to ensure that home owners and investors keep their homes and investments safe by hiring qualified inspectors to perform quality inspections.
Standards of Practice
We follow both the local and national standards of practice, adhereing to the highest standards set forth by Washington State, The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), and our own Fidelity Building Inspections quality standards.
How we Inspect
At Fidelity we inspect the same property 4 different ways to ensure we capture every aspect of what our clients need to know about to ensure their home or investment is safe and secure.
System by System
As we inspect the entire property we are testing GFCI, electrical panels and receptacles for correct wiring; faucet and tub flood drains for proper operation, doors, ducts and vents for proper function, secure connections, and more. These basic and advanced systems of the home are what provide the health and safety of the property.
Room by Room
Often times when there is a concern it is localized to a certain area. By understanding the specific room or area of the property in which an issue is discovered, it allows a clearer understanding of what caused it and whether a specialized professional is required to resolve it.
This is where we look at the vents, ducts, plumbing, electrical, joists and beams that may run in your attic or crawlspace. Often times these “hidden” or less accesible areas can hold the small problems which when addressed quickly, keep your investment secure over the long run. Properly secured vents help protect against pest intrusion, while the right brackets for plumbing will help prevent corrosion and an inevitable leak.
