Home Inspections by Professional Engineers

Buying a home in Nevada is an exciting process.

A careful examination of a house is not easy. Criterium-McWilliam Engineers provides home inspections by Professional Engineers who are licensed by the state of Nevada and adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards. In addition, the state of Nevada regulates home inspectors through its three-tiered Inspectors of Structures program – Residential, General, & Master. David Taylor, P.E. is a Master Inspector; each of our other engineers is a Residential Inspector. With a Master Inspector on staff, we are able to inspect buildings larger than 10,000 square feet.

The purchase of a new home is a time when an expert, professional home inspection is needed most. Criterium-McWilliam Engineers can provide you with a detailed report to help you learn about the house you want to buy and avoid costly surprises in the future.

Our inspection is a limited visual inspection consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE), designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property's current condition.

We look at the following areas during our Standard Home Inspection :

Structure Interior
Wood-Destroying Insect Activity Exterior
Basement Water Roofing
Ventilation Life and Fire Safety
Heating and Cooling Pool and Spa
Plumbing Environmental
Electrical Energy Efficiency

Following the on-site home inspection, you will receive a detailed written report that our clients find easy to follow. The most popular features of the report are our Executive Summary which summarizes the deficiencies to be addressed before taking ownership, and the Maintenance Plan, which provides homeowners with useful information about what they can expect to repair/maintain in the first few months, year, five years, and ten years of ownership, as well as general annual maintenance items.

Call Criterium-McWilliam Engineers for our pricing structure, which is determined by the property's size, age, location and the services you request.
