We will inspect the hard to reach areas of every attic and crawlspace. Important structural issues, leaks and insulation issues among many other problems can be missed with a lazy inspection of the attic and crawlspace. You are not getting the home inspection you deserve if the inspector doesn't inspect these areas thoroughly. We will provide you with pictures of these areas in every report so you know we went the extra mile to give you the most thorough inspection possible. 

Our prices do not increase for travel or the age of your home. Many companies will charge extra for travel outside their service area and increase costs if inspecting an older home. We will not charge for travel to any location within an hour of Eugene (Salem included) and will never charge extra for older homes.

We follow the Standards of Practice laid out by the State of Oregon and InterNACHI. Reading these Standards of Practice will give you a more thorough idea of what we cover in our inspections. 

Our homes are often the biggest investments we will make. An in-depth inspection will provide peace of mind for a buyer, certainty for a seller and protect your investment as a homeowner. We will inspect:

  • Foundations
  • Built-In Appliances
  • Basements 
  • Garages and Driveways
  • Doors and Windows
  • Exterior Finishes
  • Balconies and Decks
  • Heating and Cooling Systems
  • Kitchens and Bathrooms
  • Roof and Gutters
  • Attic and Crawl Spaces
  • Electrical Systems
  • Plumbing
  • Fireplaces
  • Water Heaters


Thermal imaging

Marathon Northwest sets itself apart by including free thermal images in our reporting. These images help find issues such as overheated electrical wire or missing insulation which can be missed in an ordinary inspection. 


Moisture scans

We will scan your entire house for moisture levels and inform you of any problem areas. 


Pest and dry rot

We are certified to conduct Wood Destroying Organism and Pest and dry rot inspections.
