Services We Offer
Residential Home Inspection
As an InterNACHI certified professional inspector all home inspections follow the InterNACHI standards of practice. Your home inspection will cover all the major aspects of the house and the major systems within the home. I look thoroughly at the roof, exterior, walks, driveway, garage, porches, decks, patios, electrical, plumbing, heating, structure, attic, basement, crawlspace, insulation, doors, windows, and living spaces. After the inspection I will provide you with a detailed report including photos and descriptions to help you understand the analysis in its entirety. This document will act as a manual for your home. I will include information regarding key systems and the recommended yearly maintenance to ensure your home is properly cared for.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be found in all fifty states. The gas is odorless, tasteless, colorless, and chemically inert. The only way to detect its presence in your home is to have a test performed. A standard radon test takes forty eight hours under closed home conditions, meaning all windows are to be closed and doors are only to be used when entering or leaving the home. Radon testing can be added to a residential inspection or performed independently. Test results are available the same day the monitor is picked up after the forty eight hour test period. More information on radon can be found on the EPA’s website linked below.
Pre-Sale Inspections, Pre-Warranty Inspections and Maintenance Checks
A pre-sale inspection is offered to a homeowner planning to sell their house. It is a great tool for a homeowner to uncover any issues that their home may have prior to listing the property. Locating any defects or areas in need of repair and informing the homeowner allows the seller the option to fix and repair any issues before the buyers inspector. Pre-warranty inspections are a service for home owners that have a builders warranty on their home. Getting an inspection before the warranty expires exposes any issues that may be covered by the builder. Maintenance checks are helpful for homeowners that want to stay on top of repairs and preserve their home. These checks help the homeowner maintain their investment and keep all systems in exceptional working order.
