SERVING

How It Works

✓ Our home inspector records the model numbers of your built-in home appliances and HVAC systems.

✓ The Model Number Algorithm (MNA) matches your appliances against the RecallChek database of recalled items.

✓ RecallChek issues a report, separate from the home inspection report. This report is emailed directly to you.

✓ This service is intended to provide homeowners with valuable information on how to receive FREE repairs from manufacturers in the event a recalled appliance is found. This service is not meant to be used in the inspection response process.  

WE ARE COMMITTED TO RAISING THE STANDARDS OF YOUR HOME INSPECTION

RecallChek is the first service for consumer recalls in the United States and has compiled over 205 million recalls from public records to create a fail-safe system to check for dangerous flaws with home appliances. 

If a manufacturer designs a dangerous product, they must recall it and fix it free of charge! RecallChek will provide the information to resolve any potential recall issues promptly.

You need more than just a home inspection, you need the professionals you can depend on even after the job is done. That’s why we back all of our inspections with a 90 day Limited Structural and Mechanical Warranty.  See policy for complete terms and conditions.

How To Use Your 90 Day Warranty

• Your 90 Day Limited Mechanical and Structural warranty comes with your home inspection. This warranty is valid 90 Days from the date of inspection or 22 days after closing whichever comes later. You will always have at least 22 days worth of coverage.

 

• This warranty covers repairs to items the Home Inspector has found to be in good working condition at the time of inspection and are specifically listed within our warranty.

 

• You will never have a deductible to pay.

 

• Claims will be handled within 72 hours of complete submission.

 

• This warranty may work in conjunction with an existing warranty.

The water line also includes well water lines, excluding those exceeding five feet under the surface level of the yard.

2. “Sewer Line”. The sewer line is the single lateral sewer service line from the point of the home’s exterior wall to the point of connection to the sewer utility’s wastewater collection system or septic tank. See policy for complete terms and conditions.
