Buying a new home may be the biggest investment you’ll ever make. Although the process is very exciting, it quickly becomes overwhelming. While the home you have selected may appear to be just what you’re looking for, how can you be sure there aren’t potentially serious defects that could make your investment a costly one?

Having your new home professionally inspected by POLARIS Home Inspections as early as possible in the buying process can save you thousands on items you may be able to have the seller or builder correct.

Our company is dedicated to providing you with valuable information about your new home. We thoroughly inspect all major components of the property to expose unknown defects and advise you about future maintenance on your home once the purchase is complete.
