Expertise & Peace of Mind
Standard inspection on an existing dwelling. Focus is on four (4) areas of concern: Safety Hazards, Structural Concerns, Components Life Span and Components Installation. Inspection of major systems such as plumbing, electrical, crawl space, attic, interior rooms, exterior, roof & gutters, etc.
A Home Inspection performed within the first year of owning a new home. Typically completed around the last months before the builder’s warranty expires.
NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION
Conducted prior to taking possession of your new home build. All major systems along with exterior and interior rooms are inspected for material defects and builder workmanship. A minimal cost to protect your new investment.
We make sure you understand all the major systems in the INTERIOR of your house, and what YOU are responsible for apart from HOA (Home Owners Association) responsibility.

What Our Happy Clients Are Saying
Les H. - Seattle, WA
“Brandon from Key Inspection was awesome. Aside from being very professional, Brandon was very responsive to our questions and requests. The inspection was thorough and complete with a very understandable summary. We will definitely use Key Inspections in the future.”
Jeremy R. - Seattle,WA
“Brandon was awesome. He took time to explain his process and everything he had found. Highly recommend using this company for inspections.”
Stefan S. - Seattle, WA
“Never met Brian face-to-face. Our agent coordinated everything and what I got was a very detailed phone call before making the offer, and an even more detailed written report after offer was accepted. The written report is gold. It's pretty much the roadmap for home improvement / maintenance over the next few years. While Brian was hesitant to give ballpark estimates on how much repairs would cost, he gave enough for me to understand what I'm walking into. The whole thing was as smooth and convenient as can be and I would gladly recommend Brian and Key Inspection.”
Justin W. - Austin, TX
“As others have said, Key Inspection Services is amazing. We had Farren come out for one inspection, which fell through. Then we had Brian come out for another, which we're closing on in the next three weeks. Anyways, the group is super knowledgeable, patient, and made the inspection enjoyable. We have nothing poor to say (except a small problem that was more on us then them). For any inspection in the future, we won't even research who to go with, these guys were amazing.”
C J. - Minneapolis, MN
“We've used Key Inspection for 3 homes, and Florin, Brandon, and Brian each were amazing to work with. As a first time home buyer in the ferocious Seattle market, it's difficult to have to give up so many contingencies and legal protection in order to just be competitive. These guys have made our decisions to bid or not immensely easier and given us a lot more peace of mind. Each have been incredibly thorough, kind, and so great about explaining the details they see. They really are pros, and we're super grateful for their work.”
Christina G. - Seattle, WA
“Our realtor's normal inspector wasn't available in a rush, so she called Brian from Key Inspection Services. He did an amazing job, and walked us through everything and answering every single one of our silly questions. We were super impressed! Finally got a chimney sweep out to address Brian's concern for our chimney/fireplace, and even he commented that our inspector was really great to catch that the smoke shelf needed cleaning. It's a pretty big deal when you get complemented on your inspector.”
Ping J. - Redmond, WA
“Farren helped my husband and I inspected a few houses in the past. We feel very comfortable working with him. He's knowledgeable and humorous. Every time we are well informed with the house condition. Also it is really convenient to book with them through their website. We trust him!”
