ADDITIONAL INSPECTION SERVICES
Before you attempt to sell your home, it’s important to learn everything you can about the property’s condition—which is why we offer this comprehensive inspection service! Before the listing is made for the property, we’ll conduct a full inspection, investigating the home’s many components for evidence of existing defects. We’ll share this information with you, giving you the guidance you need to implement practical improvements that could make for an easier and more successful real estate transaction.
New Construction Inspection
When we’re contacted for a New Construction Inspection, it needs to occur prior to the builder’s final walkthrough of the property. We’ll proceed to inspect the home from top to bottom, seeking out existing issues so that you’ll have time to arrange for corrections to be made before you agree to terms on a final purchase.
New Construction Phase Inspections
This inspection service is set to occur at several different phases of new home construction. The first time we evaluate the property’s condition should be around the time that the foundation is prepared—and we’ll continue coming back at critical phases throughout the build to make sure that everything is progressing smoothly.
Home Maintenance Inspection
To maintain your home properly, you’ve got to know what exactly needs improving—and a home inspector is just the right person to help. We’ll inspect all of the home’s visible and readily accessible areas, taking note of the deficiencies we encounter so that we can provide the appropriate home maintenance guidance.
4 Point Inspection
For this inspection service, 4 critical structural and mechanical systems in your prospective home will be evaluated—information that is typically required by insurers before coverage for the home can be offered. The areas that we’ll inspect are the roofing system, heating and cooling systems, plumbing system, and electrical system.
We use cutting-edge technology to monitor a home for the presence of radon gas. Radon is naturally occurring underground, rising into homes through small cracks and gaps in the foundation and other structural components. As the second leading cause of lung cancer, radon exposure is a serious matter—underscoring the need for all prospective home-buyers to schedule this inspection service. If radon is detected at high levels, radon mitigation will also be recommended.
WDO / Termite Inspection
To ensure that your prospective investment isn’t impacted by termite damage that can devastate the home’s structural integrity, it’s a good idea to schedule this inspection service before a final purchase is made. We’ll thoroughly look over the home’s readily accessible areas, making a precise record of any termite damage we encounter, while also searching for ongoing infestations.
This inspection service will provide a laboratory analysis of a home’s water supply. We’ll collect water samples from both the tap and well, testing them for contaminants such as coliform bacteria, heavy metals, nitrates, and nitrites.
We’re also able to comprehensively test a home for evidence of mold and the moisture that is a catalyst for its growth. In addition to investigating the property for clear signs of mold proliferation, we can also collect surface and air samples as necessary to have tested at a local lab.
Tank Sweep Service
We live in an area of the country where oil heating used to be prevalent—and often, the underground tanks would be abandoned when a new heating system was implemented. It’s all too common that there is no record of the tank’s presence on the property, and because a leaking oil tank can pose a major environmental hazard, it’s important to have a professional sweep the property to see if a tank is on-site before you buy the home.
Sewer Scope Service
To ensure that a home’s sewer system is in good condition and not in need of major maintenance or overhaul, we can perform this inspection service. We’ll utilize a specialized camera that can be inserted into the sewer, showing us areas that are normally inaccessible so that we can check for damage and potential blockages.
Pool / Spa Inspection
If your prospective home comes with a spa or pool, let us inspect it to make sure that you’re not getting dealt a bad hand along with an otherwise solid investment. We’ll inspect the spa or pool’s main structure, accessories, and mechanical systems to pinpoint existing safety issues or other defects that could wind up costly if the seller doesn’t address them in advance.
