As a certified Home Inspection service in Vail, Tiger Home & Building Inspections provides a full range of services to give you the information you need to ensure you know the condition of the property you are purchasing. Real Estate is the largest purchasing decision a person makes. Many homeowners appreciate the opportunity to walk through their new home with an independent and knowledgeable person who can show them the facts.
Residential Home Inspections
A professional home inspection is extremely important. Our consultants will provide a general evaluation of the home – a visual inspection from the foundation to roof. Our certified home inspection service experts in Vail adhere to or exceed national (ASHI) and (NACHI) standards. Click here to see a sample of a residential home inspection report.
Infrared Thermal Imaging
Infrared thermal imaging allows us to see things that the human eye cannot see. This allows Tiger to perform a more thorough inspection even beyond but we can see. IR technology helps find areas of hidden moisture from roof or plumbing leaks, see the heat lines for in-floor radiant heat, check for dangerous hot spots in the electrical panel, find areas of missing insulation and more.

A sewer scope is a camera that goes through the sewer line from the house to the city main or septic tank. This can allow us to see if any problems exist in the sewer line such as broken or crushed pipe, root infiltration, joint offsets or disconnects, sagging lines, or blockages. Don’t get stuck with costly sewer line repairs after you purchase a property.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer according to the EPA. We use continuous radon monitors to test the building for radon. CRM’s allow us to have instant results once the test is complete and there is no additional shipping or lab time required which can get in the way of your inspection deadline.
Water Testing for Wells
If you’re purchasing a home with a well water system, we can do flow test and a water quality test for you. The flow test gives us an indication of the volume of water being produced by the well. The water quality test lets us know the potability of the water and general overall water characteristics such as hardness, clarity, and alkalinity.
Tiger performs commercial inspections as well as residential. Whether you’re buying an entire building or just a space within a building, we can inspect these properties so that you know what condition the space is in before you buy. Our certified commercial inspection professionals serving the Vail area will give you the information you need to make an informed decision about the condition of the investment property whether it is an office building, motel, hotel, restaurant, or apartment complex.
New Construction Punch List
Our consultant will help you develop the list for your builder. You would be surprised what kind of problems you can find while inspecting brand new property. We will include the construction industry standard of marking cosmetic items with blue masking tape so the builder can easily identify the areas needing repair.
Stage Inspections of New Construction (Draw Inspections)
Out of town and not able to see firsthand construction activities on your new home? Our consultants will visit the construction site as often as you need. We will make sure the footers, framing, rough systems and insulation are done right before they are covered.
Do not let your builder’s warranty expire without scheduling this inspection. Let our consultant check your 11-month-old property to make sure you get the full benefit from the warranty program your builder gave you when you moved into your new house. Our Vail area certified home inspection experts will identify areas of deficiencies and provide you a third party report that you can give to your builder.
Sometimes you need to check just a single home component or limited components. Our consultants can come out and check any exterior, garage, heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, structure, attic, basement or crawlspace problem or question you may have.
