More than an inspection, it’s a Survey.

So This is the House You Want to Buy…

Be Sure You Know What You are Buying with a Detailed Survey by Custom Building Surveys, LLC First off, Custom Building Surveys (CBS) provides more than a home inspection… you will be receiving a detailed “Home Survey.” Our inspector, Dane Christy is a licensed builder and a certified ASHI inspector whose vast experience gives you peace-of-mind in assessing the overall state of your new home, as he conducts a highly detailed survey. You’ll have an extra measure of assurance in your new purchase, as the report will provide you with a detailed analysis of the major mechanical and structural aspects of the building’s condition.

Solution-Oriented Surveys

Our comprehensive inspections explain how the systems in the home function, and how these systems are currently functioning. If there are any defects in the home, Dane will explain the probable causes, give solutions, and even provide a range of cost for repair.*
