You can count on WIN Home Inspection Whatcom to provide you with the best home inspection service and an unbiased, comprehensive report on the condition of the property. Our home inspectors are always reliable, professional, and knowledgeable.
A WIN full home inspection is a visual, non-invasive inspection of many different components of the home using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology. We bring care and compassion to each inspection, and a consultative approach focused on solutions.
During the inspection, your highly trained and certified home inspector will examine the home and major systems including site, foundation, roofing, exterior, interior, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC where accessible and safe to do so. A detailed, visual, and easy-to-read report complete with recommendations for maintenance and repair will be delivered within 24 hours (often the same day).
Many home sellers opt for a pre-listing inspection prior to placing their home on the market. Along with providing a professional and personalized evaluation of the home, WIN Home Inspectors deliver a detailed home inspection report that includes recommendations for repairs and next steps. This report allows home sellers to make repairs and address issues early, which can improve home value and even help the home sell faster!

We’ve got you covered with personalized inspection for condominium, townhome, duplex, and manufactured home inspection.

WIN Home Inspection's wood destroying organism/insect inspection can be performed at the same time as one of our other inspections, or on its own, so you'll know if termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, or wood destroying beetles have worked their way into your house, and your home inspector will provide you with advice on how to handle the problem.
Hidden issues in sewer lines can cause flooding, mold, structural damage, and result in serious health problems.

Water contaminants such as bacteria and nitrates can cause serious health issues and even structural damage to the home water system. WIN Home Inspection professionals partner with accredited laboratories to test the water quality in the home and protect home and health.
Mold growth in the home can cause serious structural damage and pose a threat to human health. Trained WIN Home Inspectors check for hidden mold growth using specialized equipment to collect air samples, and can also provide mold surface sample testing for visible mold issues. We partner with accredited laboratories to provide professional and fast test results to home owners, buyers, and sellers.
Some potential issues in the home, such as missing insulation or overloaded electrical circuits are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared (IR) thermography allows WIN Home Inspectors to help identify otherwise hidden issues using innovative technology. Once identified, these issues can be proactively addressed, which can result in lower energy bills and a safer home.
