Home Inspection

When you hire a home inspector, you are hiring a professional who has training and experience in the building industry. It is the job of the home inspector to not only evaluate the condition of the house’s major systems and structural integrity, but also to evaluate how these systems are working together and identify areas that need to be watched, repaired or replaced.

Your home inspector gives you the "big picture" analysis of the house you are purchasing.

Our home inspection service is a visual inspection of the structural elements and systems which are accessible. This typically includes:

  • Attic

  • Doors and windows

  • Electrical systems

  • Exterior, walls, siding etc…

  • Fireplaces

  • Foundation

  • Heating and air conditioning systems

  • Interior

  • Plumbing systems

  • Porches and decks

  • Roofing

  • Ventilation

We strongly encourage you to accompany the inspector throughout the visit so that you may ask questions and gain a better understanding of the systems in the home.

Radon Testing

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. Radon has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water, and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above, and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water. Your home can trap radon inside.  Any home can have a radon problem, including new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.  Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level.  The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend that you test your home.  Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. You cannot predict radon levels based on state, local, or neighborhood radon measurements. Do not rely on radon test results taken in other homes in the neighborhood to estimate the radon level in your home. Homes which are next to each other can have different radon levels. Testing is the only way to find out what your home's radon level is.

Termites and Other Wood Destroying Insects

Termites are relentless pests that if left untreated, can cause severe structural damage to your home.  An inspection of the interior of the home, with special emphasis on areas that are particularly prone to WDO infestation is necessary in order to determine whether or not termites are present.  After the inspection has been completed, the inspector reports findings and proposed remediation.
