Do you need a pre-purchase or buying home inspection?

WETT stands for Wood Energy Technology Transfer, a WETT inspection is an inspection of a wood burning appliances such as a stove or a fireplace by a certified WETT inspector.  A WETT inspection can give you the peace of mind you need when buying or selling a home, living in a home, and can also be a requirement when securing insurance.

Why would I need a WETT inspection?

When your home has a wood burning appliance, the potential for harmful pollutants to be released into your home as well as combustible materials to ignite is increased, so it is important that these appliances are regularly inspected and properly maintained.  Level 1 site basic WETT inspections are also now being required as a part of the home insuring process. If purchasing an older home that includes any of these wood-burning appliances, a WETT inspection is an absolute necessity.

What is included in a WETT inspection?

A WETT inspection is an inspection that must be conducted by an inspector who is WETT certified, it includes an inspection of all the visible readily accessible elements of a wood burning appliance, to make sure that it has been installed correctly and is installed with compliance to building codes and regulations.

The inspection might include an examination of a wood stove, flue pipe, chimney, and wood-burning fireplace. An inspector should look at the positioning of the system, and its distance in relation to any combustible materials.

The bottom lines is that a WETT inspection is more than just something to offer you peace of mind, if wood-burning appliances are a part of your home’s features, it is of paramount importance that these appliances are both installed properly and inspected for your safety.

Do you need a Home Warranty Home Inspection?

Building your new home was a long process that has finally ended, you are about to or have just moved into your wonderful finished home, but you want to make sure that the home is up to standard, and that any building deficiencies or safety concerns will be corrected. Unfortunately, we tend to find even more issues in newly constructed homes then we do older houses. Arranging for a Warranty Home Inspection from a friendly, certified master home inspector with a background in building is the right choice.

Your home is under a Home warranty and any issues that are found can still be fixed. This way any issues can be resolved before they turn into larger problems down the road.

At Kelk we use only the newest technology on the market to offer the best inspection available. Kelk Inspectors are Certified Infrared Thermographers, allowing them to properly use specialized thermal imaging cameras, paired with calibrated moisture meters to produce thorough, quality inspections.

Do you need a listing or selling home inspection?

It is becoming more common for sellers to arrange for Pre-listing or Selling Home Inspection as a part of their listing marketing strategy; along with professional photographs, de-cluttering, home staging, virtual tours, and overall cleanliness. We complete an objective examination of your home, informing you know of any issues before it’s too late and a potential buyer finds them.

This way necessary repairs can be completed and/or competitive estimates can be gathered before the house is shown to potential buyers. With this strategy you are able to show buyers a house with less defects, reasonable repair quotes, or with an overall clean bill of health. Reducing the time on the market and helping to eliminate back and forth negotiations based upon buyer inspection findings. Arranging for a Seller Pre-Listing Inspection from a friendly, certified master home inspector and receive a great inspection with a fully customized, pictured filled, easy-to-read report with tons of useful information pertaining specifically to your home.
