Description of Services

My name is Bill Ditchey, and I'm a Certified Home Inspector and owner of Cornerstone Home Inspection

A home purchase is likely to be one of the largest investments you will make. It is a decision that will affect you and your family for years to come. The process can be extremely stressful and confusing and, of course, there is always considerable risk involved when making such a large purchase decision. A professional inspection will significantly reduce your risk and help make the entire home buying process easier and less stressful.

Cornerstone understands that time is of the essence in many real estate transactions. In order to fully serve our clientele, I am available for inspections 7 days a week.

All inspections are performed according to the InterNACHI Residential Standards of Practice (SoP) . I also utilize the power of Infrared Thermal Imaging Technology to provide you with the highest quality inspections. I inspect homes using the top of the line and most efficient equipment available to date. I offer and perform all of the ancillary testing and inspections necessary to give you the most comprehensive home analysis around. Once again...why? You want your home inspection right the first time and I realize that.
Cornerstone Inspections believes it is extremely important that people investigating indoor air quality problems have an understanding of the design and operation of the ventilation system of your property.

I am a certified Indoor Air Quality Technician certified by Environmental Solutions Association and IAQ2 certified by Internachi.

I can provide Indoor Air Quality testing for Allergy producing substances called allergens. Common examples of allergens include molds, dust mites, pollens, pet dander and foods. Allergens are the foreign substances that cause allergic reactions in your home or place of business. The allergens originating from dust mites are probably the world's greatest cause of allergies and are significant triggers of asthma attacks. The role of dust mites and pet dander as a source of indoor allergens has been known for over 20 years, it is now possible to measure mite allergens in the environment.

In addition I can provide for the testing of Staphylococcus (Staph) which can be found on sports uniforms and equipment in high schools and colleges
Cornerstone Home Inspection is one of the few home inspection companies that utilizes Infrared Thermal Imaging Technology. In fact less than five percent of the home inspection companies use this technology. Its benefits are substantial. My standard inspection uses Infrared Imaging to check for water leaks from toilets and sinks that are invisible to the naked eye. This service is provided free of charge to my customers .

My building envelope inspection includes exterior walls (weather permitting), interior walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and the foundation The use of Infrared allows me to offer you significant advantages over typical   inspection companies. The moisture, insulation, and electrical problems I find using Infrared Imaging can save you hundreds of dollars. Moisture problems can lead to mold growth causing a health hazard. Missing or poor insulation allow energy loss and contributes to high energy costs. Electrical problems can be a serious safety concern
