Your Full Home Inspection includes the following services with your home inspection at no additional cost to you: RecallChek, Limited Warranty, SewerGard, MoldSafe and Platinum Roof Protection Plan. Please see below to find out more about these important services:

You will receive lifetime monitoring and monthly updates regarding any potential recalls of the appliances in the home.  For more information or to purchase your own stand alone RecallChek report without ordering a home inspection, click the consumer portal button above.

Your home inspection will include a 90 Day Structural and Mechanical Warranty.  What this means to you is that you can rest easy, knowing that you are protected in addition to any home warranties you may purchase or have on the property.

SewerGard covers certain issues that may occur with your sewer line after your home inspection. SewerGard is valid for 90 days from the date of inspection.  Homeowners are responsible for sewer repairs up to the point where the underground pipe connects to the city sewer system.  We provide you with included protection which covers up to $4,000 in future repairs.

Your MoldSafe policy covers certain issues that may arise due to mold following your home inspection. Your MoldSafe policy is valid for 90 days following the home inspection. To find out what is covered by MoldSafe, view your policy by clicking the button above.

Homeowners insurance doesn’t cover repair cost for roof leaks, as roof looks typically fall under maintenance, and is the homeowners responsibility.  This is why we include a 5 Year Platinum Roof Warranty with every buyer’s full home inspection.  This protection, which includes a $500 deductible, will cover repair cost to new leaks totalling up to $3000 in coverage.

Each customer of ours is eligible for Full Concierge and Utility Set-Up. Take the stress out of moving with Utility Set-Up, we will set up all of your utilities for your home. This is a one-stop service. One call does it all. You will also have the opportunity to set up your other home services such as cable, phone, internet, and home security.


You want peace of mind that after you move in, there won’t be any costly surprises.  Don’t worry, you’re covered with your complimentary 90 day warranty which is included with every home inspection. Your warranty starts 90 days from inspection or 22 days after closing whichever comes later.  What this protection means to you is that should a pipe burst, an oven or dishwasher fail that tested good during the home inspection, you will be protected from having to pay for repairing or replacing the affected items.  You will never pay a deductible.  You can watch the short video below for more information on your 90 Day Warranty:

You will receive a state of the art home inspection report which includes pictures and video, as well as a complimentary RecallChek report.  There may be appliances such as dishwashers and microwaves with active recalls attached to them, some of which pertain to potential fire risks.  Manufacturer’s are responsible to remedy recalls and you will receive information on how you can contact them for repairs. You can watch the short video for more.

Why a home inspection?

Home inspections are a time for gathering as much information as you can about the overall condition and state of a property to make an informed decision whether or not to purchase a property.  A home inspection report not only will provide peace of mind, but also the potential for leverage when negotiating the final purchase price of the home.  You will save a lot of potential headache and money by having the foresight of a home inspection.  Peace of mind and providing information is our commitment to you.

Your home inspection will be a general overview of the home major mechanical and structural components.  It will be a non-invasive examination of readily accessible components within the property.  A home inspection does not include any engineering tests, geological surveys, water quality testing, well inspections, mold spore laboratory testing, septic and sewer inspections or any other type of specific inspection not explicitly covered and contained within the inspection agreement.  If at any time you have a question regarding a specific item or a potential concern, please don’t hesitate to ask.  If the inspector identifies an area of concern, he may recommend further specialized testing or evaluation by a qualified and licensed individual of the trade regarding the issue encountered.

At Red Rock Home Inspections, we understand you want a company that goes above and beyond to look out for your best interest.  That’s why we include a RecallChek and a 90 day home warranty with every home inspection we provide.

What is RecallChek?

RecallChek is the first service for consumer recalls in the United States and has compiled over 210 million recalls from public records, to create a fail-safe system to check for dangerous flaws with home appliances.

What is the 90 Day Warranty?

You need more than just a home inspection, you need 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.
