About Us

My name is Nicholas D Canepa. I am the Owner and Inspector of CANEPA HOME INSPECTION SERVICE.  I have many years previous construction expierence, and performed Home Inspections with another inspector before starting this business in 2000. I’m a member of NACHI and an affiliate member of the Sacramento Association of Realtors. I am also a member of FREA, the Foundation of Real Estate Appraisers and Inspectors. I maintain ongoing training as required by my association and to provide you with the current requirements and conditions. I have passed and maintain ethics training and I am fully Insured, and carry a  bond as required by the Sacramento Association of Realtors. I comply with all Standards and Practices of the State of California.

NACHI, the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors is the largest Home Inspectors Association, and has very specific requirements for membership and certification. You may visit them at their website www.nachi.org.
When I do inspections, I focus on customer care — bending over backwards for my customers to make sure they get everything they need. I take the extra time to provide a post-inspection walk-through to emphasize the good points and problem areas of the home, and will demonstrate how to operate everything (appliances, heater, etc.). I also instruct  you where the Emergency shutoff switches. valves and breakers are located.

You will receive a written report, usually emailed to you on the evening of the inspection, but never later than 24 hours after the inspection.. There are no codes to decipher, it’s all in plain English. Major items of importance will be in red ink and normal maintenance items, or items to be attended to after move in are in blue ink. Feel free to call me anytime after the inspection if you have questions. I will meet you at the site again to further clarify an issue.
A standard inspection includes built in appliances and any crawl spaces at no extra charge. For an additional fee, I can do water potability tests. I can schedule full IPSSA Pool  Inspections with a reputable local company to be onsite at the same time as my Inspection. He will provide you with an additional report on the conditions of a Pool & or Spa.
While same-day inspections are sometimes possible, it usually requires 48-72 hours to get one on the schedule, call,  Email me or drop me a note today if you’re interested. I’d love to work with you.

Area covered: Greater Sacramento Valley area, including all of Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer counties, and parts of San Joaquin, El Dorado, and Solano counties. Will cover outside areas if requested.

So,give me a call and see how I can give you peace of mind and make you feel sure  “this is the house for you”
