Forensics Inspection Services

CBI’s Forensics Inspection services are a Non-Invasive Visual Inspection of the property. Depending upon the needs of either the home owner or the home owner association, CBI will visually inspect all interior and exterior areas of the property. If an attic or basement is present, CBI will visually inspect those as well. This inspection is a visual inspection only. If a CBI Inspector cannot see it, it cannot be addressed. In the event an issue may be present that reveals a potential problem the CBI Inspector will suggest options such as evasive testing.

  • Visual Inspections
  • Condition Report
  • Maintenance Plan
  • Home Inspection

Depending on what kind of shape the property is in, CBI’s Condition Report includes an assessment of what items need to be repaired. The report will take a look at each aspect of the property from roof to foundation and let you know what the problems are. This would include all exterior claddings, plumbing, mechanical and electrical components.

Upkeep and maintenance are critical to every property. CBI’s Maintenance Plan is available to assess everything requiring maintenance; for example BBQ’s, fences, landscaping and windows. CBI will provide a schedule and a how-to approach to maximizing the useful life of each and every visually observable component.

Whether purchasing a new home, or looking to sell, CBI will come out and assess the residence. CBI will test various components including, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, chimney, windows, and doors to make sure they are working properly. CBI will also inspect any attic or basement to make sure everything is working in proper fashion. Once the inspection is complete, CBI will provide a detailed report for use in repairs and property documentation.

Bid Package Review & Management

The CBI Bid Package provides each client with a Scope of Work, Material Specifications and Take-Off Data.

  • Scope of Work
  • Material Specifications
  • Take-Off Data

In providing you with a Bid Package, we give you the tools to compare contractor bids without the guess work of what repairs need to be done and how to do them. This will ensure that each contractor bids on the same repair process, using the same materials.

A Scope of Work will give you step by step instructions of what needs to be done to perform the job correctly.
The Material Specifications and Take-Off Data provide you with the details of what to use and how much you will need.
