Buyer’s Inspection

Our Residential property inspection is a thorough evaluation of a home’s overall condition at the time of inspection. We’ll carefully inspect the most visible and readily accessible areas, providing a complete and easy-to-read report of the findings within 24 hours after the inspection.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Our Pre-Listing Inspection should be scheduled by interested home-sellers before a listing for the home is made. By comprehensively inspecting the home before it is shown, we can clue you in on potential issues that could make successful negotiations more difficult to attain. Since the listing has yet to be published, you can make repairs as you see fit and otherwise prepare for disclosing known issues to prospective buyers. This will help to avoid complications later during the negotiation process.

Home Maintenance Inspection

This inspection is the service provided as a home checkup. It’s a standard home inspection performed for a homeowner who isn’t involved in a real estate transaction. The home maintenance inspection is a checkup inspection for homeowners who have an interest keeping their homes in good condition as you never know what can go wrong with your home within a year.

New Construction Inspection

This investigative evaluation of new construction is designed to determine if there are issues with your new home before you move forward with the closing process. Before the builder’s final walkthrough, we’ll assess the condition of most readily accessible home components, giving you the details about any deficiencies we discover so that you can pass along the information to the builder.

Pre-Drywall Inspection

This is a inspection done during the home building process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. We’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. Our non-invasive inspection is based on observations of the visible and apparent condition of the interior and exterior of the structure, including its major systems and components. Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any material defects observed on the date of the inspection. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they’re still in force.

Additional Services

Radon Testing

We provide 48-hour short-term testing using the latest Continuous Radon Monitors (CRM). The purpose of this test is to check the property for the presence of high levels of radon.

About Radon

What is Radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas produced by the decay of uranium-238 and radium-226. Most radon enters a home because of air pressure differentials caused by air being exhausted from the building by ventilation. Radon can pass through holes in the foundation material of a home, it can be dissolved in well water, or released directly into the air by radium-containing materials in the building, such as granite counter tops, slate flooring, slate pool tabletop, stone foundations, and stone fireplace.

History of Radon

The detection of radon dates to the 1800’s. The presence of radon in indoor air was documented in 1950. In the 1970’s, research on radon began. In 1987, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) communicated that the acceptable level of radon in a living area was a reading of below 4.0 picocuries per liter (pCi/L).

Why is it important to have your home tested for radon?

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and the number two cause of lung cancer for smokers. Each year, 21,000 people die from radon lung cancer. Every home has some level of radon, so it is important to test the level of your home so that mitigation may be performed if it is within unacceptable levels. According to the “Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide to Radon,” one out of every 15 homes, or 6% of homes, have a radon level of over 4 pCi/L which would require mitigation.
