Smart Move Home Inspections goes above and beyond the standard inspection by staying on top of industry and technological changes. The top inspectors use the best available technology. SMHI utilizes a FLIR Infrared camera on every home inspection at no additional cost. See how IR works by clicking on the following link: INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY
IR is great because it provides you with an even deeper analysis of the building and its different components that the naked eye cannot. Applications for IR include:Water intrusion, moisture problems, heat loss, air infiltration/exfiltration, missing or damaged insulation and electrical overheating. These all produce different heat signatures that can be identified by infrared thermography.
Upon completion of the home inspection a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the home will be emailed asap. This report includes many digital photographs to illustrate precisely any deficiencies.
During the review process, differentiation is established between maintenance items and more important structural and safety issues. Remember, I'm a home inspector and a firefighter. I want your new home to be safe and sound.

Professional, courteous and thorough - I called Ryan after reading the many positive reviews on this site. It was just after Thanksgiving and my due diligence period was about to expire, so I needed an inspection fast. After I sent him an email, he called right away and was able to accommodate me with an inspection the following morning. He showed up on time, was very professional and did a very thorough inspection of the home. He not only pointed out all areas of concern and explained what would likely need to be done to fix it, but he also took the time to show me general maintenance that I should be doing to prolong the life of my major appliances and keep the home in good condition. I have purchased several homes previously and he is by far the best home inspector I have ever hired. I would highly recommend this company. - A. Gennari
