Standard Home Inspection
Our standard inspection covers key important areas, including all functioning or visible major elements and systems plus associated components. It is conducted following recognized home inspection industry standards (ASHI – American Society of Home Inspectors).
Radon Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. Testing is inexpensive and easy. You can fix a radon problem. Radon reduction systems work and they are not too costly. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.
Termite/Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) Inspection
Termite/WDI Inspections are an examination of the structure to determine the presence of any wood destroying insects. This service is typically performed at the same time as the general inspection and is performed by a third party state licensed inspection company.
Sewer Lateral Inspection
A lateral line is the private sewer line, sometimes called a house tap or building sewer, that connects your home to the public sewer system. Waste water from your toilets, sinks, showers, washing machines travels through your lateral line to the public (or mainline) sewer system which carries it to the nearest waste water plant for treatment.
11-Month Warranty Inspection
A warranty Inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of the interior and exterior of your new home and its major systems and components. It’s conducted during the 11th month of your occupancy – before your builder’s warranty expires. We follow ASHI Standards of Practice.
When it’s time to sell your home, we recommend scheduling a Pre-Listing Inspection before it hits the market. We’ll arrive on-site to provide a full home inspection of the property for any defective components that you may wish to have repaired or simply mention when showing the home. This will give you a more accurate idea of the home’s value and promote smoother negotiations when a buyer is made aware of existing issues.
Walk Through Inspection
Most insurance agencies require this inspection to be performed on older homes before they’ll issue a policy. The inspection will cover key areas of the home that are vital to a property’s overall condition: the roof, attic, electrical system, HVAC systems, plumbing system and foundation.
Gas Safety Inspection
A gas inspection checks your natural gas system to ensure all appliances, fireplace, etc. are working properly. Some municipalities require this so check with your local city hall.
For mold inspections we have partnered with a 3rd party professionally certified mold removal and mold inspection company. They can provide clean air and peace of mind to homeowners and those involved in real estate transactions by treating mold problems in an unconventional way. If you need a mold inspection or test, we will schedule it. Most of the time, mold testing is unnecessary if the mold is visible. Free estimates are often provided.
Re-Inspections are offered to clients who have arranged for the repair or replacement of a component that we found to be defective during the original home inspection. We’ll return to the property to ensure that the contractors properly resolved the issue and that there are no additional safety concerns.
Individual Component Inspection
This inspection is ideal for clients who don’t need an entire home evaluated. Whether you require an inspection of a home’s foundation, electrical system, roof, or any other component—we’re able to arrive on-site to offer our professional, unbiased assessment.
