Additional Inspection Services
To help you sell a home while avoiding setbacks during negotiations, we can fully evaluate the home’s condition before you make a listing. This way, you can both make repairs in advance and also inform prospective buyers of existing issues from the outset so that promising negotiations aren’t derailed once the Buyer’s Inspection reveals those same issues.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection service is geared toward new home construction, and it needs to be scheduled for a date prior to the builder’s final walkthrough. We’ll thoroughly evaluate the entire property, taking note of any issues that should be corrected by the construction team before final closing.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
A new home warranty can be a tremendous asset for homeowners, but you want to make sure you have this done before the warranty expires—typically within 1 year. We’ll inspect the home’s readily accessible areas, providing a full inspection report that will detail any defects we discover. You can then review the warranty to see if repair costs will be covered.
Home Maintenance Inspection
To help you take better care of your home, we can perform this inspection service, providing a detailed account of existing maintenance issues in the home’s readily accessible and visible areas. We’ll take the time to review our findings with you, guiding you through the most pressing maintenance tasks and how extensive the work will be.
If a home tests positive for unsafe levels of radon, then radon mitigation will be promptly recommended. We’ll conduct a minimally invasive procedure to exhaust the gas from the home, bringing concentrations down to safer levels in accordance with EPA guidelines.
In the event that the seller of the home agrees to your repair and project requests, allow us to return to the property to perform a Re-inspection. This can help you have peace of mind in the moments leading up to final closing by ensuring that previous issues have been sufficiently resolved.
A naturally occurring gas, radon is nonetheless dangerous to humans—especially when the gas is able to concentrate in confined spaces such as a home. As the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking, living in a home contaminated with radon is a risk you don’t want to take. We’re able to professionally test a home for radon using state-of-the-art equipment that can pick up on even small concentrations of this odorless and invisible gas.
When water is contaminated by hazardous compounds or pathogenic bacteria, it’s usually not apparent until the person consuming the water becomes ill. Before you close on a home, we encourage you to allow us to collect water samples from the well and tap to send off for laboratory testing. The results of this test will reveal if there are harmful levels of heavy metals, coliform bacteria, and other potential contaminants.
General Contracting Services
In addition to our wide variety of professional home inspection services, we can also provide General Contracting. Whether you need a structure built from the ground up, remodeled, or otherwise worked on, we’re happy to work with you to get the job done right.
For this inspection service, we’ll bring in a professional third party to evaluate your prospective home for signs of termite damage. Termite and other wood-destroying organisms can cause an incredible amount of damage to a home, and that damage isn’t always visible on the surface—making it critically important to have a trained professional inspect the property.
Moisture Mitigation Services
Moisture intrusion in a home can cause a host of issues, and the costs add up. Before the problem gets out of hand, we can arrive at the property to assess exactly what is causing the moisture to penetrate the structure of the home. After determining the source, we can then conduct the necessary repairs to ensure that the moisture issue doesn’t continue to cause further damage.
Mold Inspection & Testing
A good home is a safe haven for families, but that feeling can be diminished when there are elements of the home that are detrimental to your family’s health—and one of the most common offenders is mold. For this inspection service, we’ll comprehensively test a home for mold, providing you with a detailed analysis so that you can take action for mold removal if necessary.
We’re also able to provide home repair services for our clients, whether those repairs are minor or a substantial remodeling project. From leaky roofs to defective decks, we can help restore your home to the condition you want it to be in.
