Inspection Services

Sterling Home Inspections, LLC offers investigative home inspection services to the greater Raleigh area. We carefully plan our inspections in accordance with North Carolina’s excellent Standards of Practice, taking our time to identify any issues and to accurately inform you of anything that needs to be done in order for a home to reach its highest potential.

General Property Inspection

Our residential home inspection involves a comprehensive assessment of a property’s visible and readily accessible areas. We’ll take careful notes about the home’s condition as we go along, compiling a full report of our findings that you’ll be able to access within 24 hours.

The inspection includes the following areas:

  • Roofing System
  • Structural Components
  • Foundation & Crawl Space
  • Basement
  • Garage
  • Driveways & Walkways
  • Deck
  • Exterior (doors, windows, cladding)
  • Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
  • Attic, Ventilation, & Insulation
  • Fireplace & Chimney
  • Electrical System
  • Plumbing System
  • Heating System
  • Cooling System

Pre-Listing Inspection

This inspection is designed for current homeowners who are planning to put their home up for sale in the near future. Before you make the listing, we’ll make sure that there are no defects present in the property’s readily accessible structure or mechanical systems. If we do discover any issues, you can use this information to make repairs so that your home is as appealing as possible—or you can simply inform prospective buyers before they schedule their own inspection to establish trust during the negotiating process.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

A 1-year warranty was likely offered by the builder of your new home as an additional incentive and for your protection. Before that first year is up, we recommend scheduling this inspection so that we can make sure that your home is in good condition for the years to come. We’ll evaluate the home’s readily accessible areas for any defective structural components or malfunctioning mechanical systems. Depending on the terms of your warranty agreement, you may be exempt from all or a portion of the repair costs—saving you money in the long run.


This inspection is for customers who have already had an inspection with us that led to the identification of a defective component. Once repairs have been put in place, we’ll return to the property to reevaluate the component—making sure that there are no safety violations and that everything is installed or applied correctly.
