Fully insured building inspection from Open Hearth is the best way to determine the true condition of a home you are buying or selling. Open Hearth guarantee’s every aspect of home construction in ways other building inspectors can’t. Most home inspectors get their “expertise” preparing for written home inspection exams. Kevin Maynard of Open Hearth has over 20 years experience in construction, roofing, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, landscaping, really just about every aspect of home construction. Kevin is also foremost expert in the inspection of  log homes, having traveled throughout Untied States and nationally as an expert witness in court cases involving inspection log homes and log home construction errors.

Make Sure your Inspection Is Fully Insured

Your home inspection with Open Hearth is completely insured against errors and omissions. Typically most inspection LLCs are set up to protect themselves, not you as the home buyer or home seller.  Be sure your home inspector carries Errors & Omissions Insurance to properly protect your home investment.

Advanced Inspection Tools, Safety, and Health Measures

Open Hearth uses many advanced home inspecting tools such as thermal imaging and moisture metering, going well beyond home inspection standards, catching problems other building inspectors miss, before they cost you thousands of dollars. Our building inspections include measurement of basement walls to obtain critical foundation conditions, which are among the most expensive home repairs, yet not required by home inspection regulations. Open Hearth also does asbestos testing, lead testing, carbon monoxide testing and radon testing protecting your family’s health.
