Buying a home in Connecticut is an exciting process.

This is a time when an expert, professional home inspection is needed most. Criterium-Mullan Engineers can provide you with a detailed report to help you learn about the house you want to buy and avoid costly surprises in the future.

A careful examination of a house is not easy. Criterium-Mullan Engineers provides home inspections by Professional Engineers who are licensed by the state of Connecticut and adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards.

Our inspection is a limited visual inspection consistent with the standards of practice of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers (NABIE), designed to identify significant deficiencies and/or repairs needed in the major systems of a home (structural, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roof, exterior) and to provide a general understanding of the property's current condition.

We look at the following areas during our Standard Home Inspection:

Structural integrity of the building Insulation and energy conservation
Termites & other damaging wood borers Chimneys and fireplaces
Foundation and settling Exterior walls
Girders, floor joists and rafters Roof surfacing (from ground)
DrainageGutters and downspouts

Following the on-site home inspection, you will receive a detailed written report that our clients find easy to follow. The report is written specifically for the property inspected and includes a summary detailing the condition of the major systems in the house.
