Additional Inspection Services
If there is radon present in your prospective home, you need to learn about it as soon as possible—and unfortunately, without specialized testing equipment, this odorless and invisible gas will continue to go undetected. We’re able to perform professional radon testing that will take accurate measurements of radon levels in a home so that you know whether or not radon mitigation will be necessary.
Mold & Air Testing
Not only does mold look disturbing, but it can also cause severe damage to your home while causing irritating allergies and various other health issues. That’s why we offer Mold Testing, including two air samples as an affordable stand-alone and add-on to any inspection service. Find out about any major mold problems before you buy a new home.
If the seller of your prospective home has agreed to have defective components repaired or replaced after our initial inspection, we’re happy to come back on-site to conduct a Re-inspection. We’ll carefully look over the state of repairs, ensuring that they’ve been done correctly so that you can close on the home with confidence.
Learning the ins and outs of a home’s condition before you put it up for sale can only benefit you in the short-term and in the long-term. With new knowledge of existing defects, you’ll be able to make repairs in order to maintain the value of the home before negotiations begin—which will also help to prevent underbids that could result in a transaction that doesn’t live up to your expectations.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection service will provide a comprehensive overview of existing defects in a newly constructed home. We’ll conduct the inspection prior to the builder’s’ final walkthrough, leaving you with an adequate amount of time to seek resolution for issues that you don’t want to be stuck paying for after final closing.
Home Maintenance Inspection
Home maintenance can be a lot for anyone to manage, but with this inspection service, we’ll help you prioritize what needs to come next. We’ll thoroughly assess the entire home, taking note of defective areas and components in need of maintenance so that we can help you prevent more expensive repair bills that could occur due to the complete failure of a component.
Well Yield Inspection
For this inspection service, we’ll test a home’s well to ensure that it is capable of supplying a sufficient amount of water for the entire home. If the well flow is insufficient, it may prove quite costly to fix—so we highly recommend having the system checked before agreeing to terms on a home purchase.
This inspection service requires us to take water samples from a home’s tap and well. These samples will be tested by a local lab for contaminants such as heavy metals and coliform bacteria.
A comprehensive inspection of a home’s septic system will reveal potential damage or blockage that will need to be fixed before the system can function properly. We’ll also check to see whether or not the septic tank will need to be pumped before you move into the home.
Termites are high on the list of a homeowner’s worst fears, easily causing thousands of dollars of damage to a home’s structure. For this inspection service, we’ll comprehensively inspect your prospective home for evidence of termite damage—giving you the information you need in order to obtain a repair quote before closing on the home.
