Ask About Environmental Inspections: Mold and Radon Testing

No, you aren’t required to be there for the inspection. But we highly recommend that you be present. It’s a valuable learning experience for most people and will help you get the most benefit from the inspection.

The home inspection process is the non-invasive physical examination of the readily accessible and installed structures, systems, and components of your home from top to bottom.  We provide an impartial evaluation and a detailed custom comprehensive report on the condition of the major aspects of the property. You will also receive specific recommendations to correct or monitor any significant deficiencies that exist at the time of the inspection, as well as helpful tips on maintaining your home.

Our standard inspection report covers all the major systems and structural elements of the house.

• Structural
• Grounds/Flatwork
• Roof Systems
• Interior Areas
• Major Appliances
• Gas and C/O Testing
• Heating and A/C Systems
• Electrical System
• Plumbing System
• Insulation and Ventilation Systems
• Garage and much more…

With our experience being in construction and remodeling, we can accurately estimate what it costs to repair existing issues within your new or existing home.

We provide high resolution full color digital photos of any trouble areas embedded inside the report.

The time will vary depending on both the size and condition of the home. For most homes, 2-3 hours is pretty typical. But for larger homes, or homes in poor condition, it may take longer.

Absolutely. A professional inspection of a new home is important. We can spot potential problems early, while they are still easy to correct.

Chances are that even if you are very familiar with home construction, you still don’t have the knowledge, training and experience of a professional Home Inspector. We’ve inspected thousands of homes.

Our report will tell you the condition of the house, including needed repairs and expenses. No house is going to be perfect. It is up to you to decide how any problems the inspection uncovers might affect your decision to purchase.

No. The code of ethics of The National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) prohibits its members from doing repair work on properties they inspect.

The best time to consult the inspector is right after you’ve made an offer on your new property. The real estate contract usually allows for a grace period to inspect the building.

No. A professional inspection is simply an examination into the current condition of your prospective real estate purchase. It is not an appraisal or a Municipal Code inspection.

Definitely! Now you can complete your purchase with peace of mind about the condition of the property and its equipment and systems. You may have learned a few things about your property from the inspection report, and will want to keep that information for your future reference.

The inspection fee varies depending upon the size of the house, particular features of the house, its age, and possible additional services, such as crawlspace, mold or radon testing. However, DO NOT LET COST be a factor in deciding whether or not to have a home inspection, OR IN THE SELECTION OF YOUR HOME INSPECTOR. The knowledge gained
from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspector is NOT necessarily a bargain. The inspector’s qualifications should be the most important consideration.
