Why Choose Signature Home Inspection?

At Signature Home Inspection, we’ve been raising the bar since opening our doors in 2002. We bring years of experience, professional training, and unparalleled attention to detail to every home inspection and commercial property inspection we conduct.

Purchasing a home or commercial space is a large financial commitment. Our goal is to educate you with a thorough understanding of the property condition so you can make a confident decision. Contact us at 888-860-2688 to schedule an inspection in Orange County, Los Angeles and the surrounding areas of California or to learn more about us.

Cheaper Isn’t Always Better

Imagine moving into your new home to find six inches of water sitting in the basement. That’s not likely the welcome you anticipated. This expensive mishap could have been avoided if your inspector was trained to recognize the weak polybutylene pipe in your house, poor roof system drainage, or improper grading at the exterior of the home. These are just a few examples of many possible conditions that show the importance of hiring trained inspectors.

Due to the proliferation of substandard inspection training schools, there are now more underprepared inspectors than skilled ones. To make matters worse, law does not require California home inspectors to be licensed. Some inspectors may even claim that they are “licensed,” but they’re only referring to their local license to operate a business — not to professionally inspect a home.

If you hire an inexperienced or poorly trained inspector, you may pay a lower rate. However, you may also pay thousands of dollars later to fix a crucial problem the inspector didn’t notice. We’ve been called by hundreds of clients to re-inspect homes because inexperienced inspectors missed serious problems. Don’t take that risk with the largest investment of your life.

Training and Experience Matter

We hold our inspectors to an incredibly high standard. We require them to be certified and experienced, as well as members of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors® (NACHI). Moreover, we have them train for months before evaluating a home on their own. Even our most skilled inspectors are continually attending seminars and expert training sessions. We also do cross-training so they can perform specialty inspections such as mold testing, radon testing, pool / spa evaluations, meth testing, and more. On average, we save our clients more than $7,500 per inspection.

Beware of Biased Inspectors

Some inspection companies offer kickbacks to realtors in order to gain a greater market share. While this arrangement is unethical, it has recently become a big problem. Since NACHI-certified inspectors are prohibited from offering or receiving kickbacks, several inspection firms have had to leave NACHI.

90 Day Warranty

At Signature Home Inspection we are there for you even after the home inspection has been completed. We offer a 90 day limited home warranty starting the day of the inspection and provided by a third party company, Residential Warranty Service. Imagine moving into your new home and the dishwasher that operated for the last several weeks started to malfunction. Signature Home Inspection is there for you.

With a quick call our professional staff can help you contact the warranty company and get things moving in the right direction. Visit residentialwarrantyservices.com for more information.

Home Owners Network

All Signature Home Inspection residential inspection customers receive a complimentary membership to the Home Owners Resource program. Home Owners Resource is a FREE service provided by your Orange County Home Inspector that gives you access to ask a Professional any question about your property. This service is especially useful for any maintenance issue that may arise in your home where you would like an expert’s input and/or suggestion!

SewerGard Protection

With every full home inspection, we provide Sewer Line Protection from SewerGard – the world leader in underground repair coverage. Buy with confidence and worry less knowing that main water and sewer collapses and breaks are covered, up to $4000, for the first 90 days after the inspection.

Complimentary Lifetime RecallChek Reports

Since the early 1970’s, American homeowners have been protected from dangerous products in their homes by federal law. Congress prescribed a system whereby if a manufacturer designed a dangerous product, they MUST recall all those items and FIX THEM FOR FREE!

The problem with this consumer protection law is that the customer must search an enormous database every month for each individual product including HVAC equipment, water heaters, and kitchen appliances to learn about a potential fire or safety hazard. There is a database designed and managed by the government, but you would have to wade through 195 MILLION recalled items to find out if a dishwasher, microwave or heat system is a hazard to your family.

How the RecallChek system works:

Signature Home Inspection records and submits your appliance data for the property to the RecallChek center.

At RecallChek Headquarters, your manufacturers and model numbers are computer matched against MILLIONS of recalls using our Model Number Algorithm (MNA).

RecallChek will then hand-check the report to eliminate wrong numbers from worn plates and ID cards and other problems.

In the event of a potential recall, RecallChek issues a report including:

  1. the nature of the recall,
  2. where the product was sold,
  3. how to remedy the defect, and
  4. how to get the item repaired or replaced (in most cases, absolutely FREE).

Visit RecallChek’s website for more information.

MoldSafe Protection

When you purchase a Signature Ultimate home inspection package from Signature Home Inspection, you’ll receive an extra level of protection for your home with MoldSafe. For the first 90 days after the inspection, if mold is found in your home that was not present at the time of inspection, you are covered for remediation, up to $2000.

At www.SignatureMore.com, we believe that our dedication to training and excellence makes a difference. However, don’t take our word for it. Read our client reviews to learn even more about what sets us apart.

*Client must sign required pre-inspection agreement, pay for the service before starting the inspection and be present at the time of the home inspection. If dissatisfied, client must request a refund in writing before leaving. Any re-inspection must be completed on the same property within the original due diligence period of the Real Estate Contract.
