We believe you get what you pay for and trust starts before the inspection. That why we are provide full transparency now with the costs below and have NO hidden inspection fees.

A Scope exclusive feature is an educational walk through at the end of the inspection that is designed to not only help you get more familiar with your new home but will provide tips on protecting your new investment based on our decades of experience. We are not the cheapest or most expensive inspection company in the area. We offer competitive pricing that takes into account the size and complexity of your home. Most older homes and larger homes will require additional time to evaluate the home's systems and in turn, will increase the cost.

Ozone Air Cleaning Treatments are commonly used by water damage restoration companies to eliminate smoke odors after a home has been damaged by fire. We also use these treatments to help eliminate odors related to smoke, pets, previous home owners or related lingering odors. Ozone Air Cleaning is completed before listing a home for sale and after a homeowner takes ownership. Oxygen within the home is converted to Ozone making it unsafe for occupancy for people and pets. A typical treatment is six hours, email us for scheduling options.
