Snowbird Inspection
Vacation Inspections are a service we offer that is geared toward homeowners that leave their homes for extended periods. Perfect examples of our typical clients are retirees residing in a retirement community that leave our cold North Idaho winters for a warmer climate.

Our goal is to give our clients ‘Peace of Mind’ while they are away. We accomplish this by visiting the home on a weekly or monthly basis, and performing what we call a mini inspection.


Accent Home Inspections offers a maintenance program for our snowbird customers. These services are provided at a monthly cost and contain specific services. All services will be provided under an agreement which will detail out responsibilities of each party and expectations.

Services provided on each visit:

Mechanical Checks:
- Air conditioner and furnace checked for proper setting and operation

In the event a problem is detected that requires immediate attention, you will be notified by phone or email whichever you prefer. After contacting you, we will gladly contact your vendor of preference to make any repairs. If you do not have a preference, we will refer and contact someone for you. Extra services will be billed by the repair contractor directly to the client.
