"Welcome Home" with HBC Inspection Services and our newest division, "Great Atlantic NJ", the Shore areas premiere residential dock and bulkhead inspection company. The Jersey Shore attracts many home-buyers to the allure of owning a coastal waterfront home. HBC Inspection Services/Great Atlantic NJ are able to perform all the necessary inspections associated with your special purchase, at a reasonable price.
Marine dock and bulkhead inspections are often tightly joined with the house design or renovations seen in waterfront home construction. There are many "Do's and Don'ts" when buying a shore area or waterfront home. HBC Inspection Services background and experience makes us uniquely qualified to point-out and help you understand the actions and their implications.
A dock and bulkhead inspection will also help you to understand the many materials and or construction methods associated with these marine structures. Each particular material brings it's own advantage...and sometimes disadvantage into play. Cost is also directly related to the various materials. Wood timber is more cost effective, but also has a definite life expectancy. Vinyl materials have shown a long service life, but cost can be an issue.
