A lot goes into inspecting a home and property: it’s technical and intuitive. To do a thorough job it's important to think creatively and logically while making sure to view things from different angles, literally. Essentially, a home inspector is a mix of detective and storyteller.

Lucid Home Inspections takes the time to do a full inspection, going over every inch of a home. We use a variety of tools, including FLIR® thermographic imaging, and a good amount of experience. It is our job to fully evaluate the property and find areas of concern or problems. We focus on areas that can lead to health, safety, and fire hazards. Our typical inspection for the average home is $350. However, the price can vary based on home size and the number of systems. Give us a call at 513-550-3641 for a price quote.
