Reshaping Your Knowledge, Enriching Your Perspective
At Lock Home Inspections, we strive to unlock your potential as a home-buyer, identifying what obstacles may be standing in the way of a protected investment so that we can help to clear and overcome them. We inspect homes to an incredibly high standard, evaluating where the strengths and weaknesses lie, while analyzing how and why these findings should affect the home’s current valuation. This will go a long way in improving your standing ahead of final closing, giving you leverage as a prospective buyer by ensuring that you’re able to effectively renegotiate terms in order to satisfy your expectations and financial goals as a new homeowner.
Less Stress for All Involved
We’re committed to helping you understand the nature of repair and maintenance issues in a home’s construction without sounding the alarms—you can count on us to calmly and kindly walk you through what it will take to fix any existing issues that we’ve identified.
The knowledge we provide during a home inspection will help home-buyers, real estate agents, and sellers stay on the same page, facilitating a much easier negotiating process for all involved.
Free re-inspections are available after repairs and improvements have been put into place, ensuring that trust is maintained throughout a real estate transaction—and allowing the buyer to invest with confidence!

Our Tools and Technology
Lock Home Inspections utilizes several tools in order to attain more detailed information including thermal imaging and a drone. The drone flies above the property, collecting high-resolution images of the roof so that we can determine what condition it is in and if repairs are needed. The thermal imaging camera can pick up on areas of heat loss or excess heat, we can find issues in the home that would have otherwise been overlooked.
