Additional Inspection Services
When you’re ready to sell a home, a professional home inspector can help you establish a good relationship with prospective buyers so that a successful transaction can occur in a timely manner. We’ll provide a detailed report on the property’s condition, giving you a better understanding of what improvements need to be made. You can either choose to make improvements before you send out your listing for the home, or you can simply pass along the information to a prospective buyer to make sure you’re both on the same page before negotiating a transaction.
New Construction Inspection
For this inspection service, we’ll come to the construction site during the final build phase on your new home to perform a full evaluation of the property. By learning about potential issues before the builder’s final walkthrough, you’ll be able to work out a timely solution that shouldn’t significantly delay your projected move-in date.
We offer this inspection service so that our clients are able to determine whether or not it’s a good idea to move forward with an investment after our previous inspection uncovered defective areas. After the seller of the home or their real estate agent has informed you that repairs are in place, we’ll return to the property, re-inspecting the areas in question to make sure that the repairs have fully addressed the original issues.
When most of us think of mold inside a home, we typically expect it to be clearly visible—but that’s not always the case. Mold can develop in areas of the home that are out of sight, hidden within the walls or ceiling. This inspection service will thoroughly assess a property for mold, using a moisture meter when necessary to identify suspect areas that could be concealing mold growth.
As licensed radon measurement technicians, we’re trained to test radon levels in a home in order to determine if radon mitigation will be necessary. Radon is a naturally occuring gas, but it has extremely carcinogenic properties—and it can be a serious risk for residents inside a home if radon has concentrated to an unsafe level. Because radon is invisible and odorless, it’s important to entrust a licensed professional with this inspection service.
When termites infest a home, serious structural damage can occur. In many cases, that damage is largely hidden beneath exterior cladding and interior drywall, and it can be difficult to spot with the untrained eye. We’re able to perform a comprehensive inspection for damage caused by termites and other wood-destroying organisms.
This inspection service should be scheduled before you close on a home to ensure that the property’s water supply is free from dangerous contaminants such as heavy metals and certain bacteria. We’ll collect water samples from both the tap and well, sending them off to a local laboratory for a comprehensive analysis.
Oil Tank Scanning
If a residential property happens to have an abandoned underground oil tank, it could be an environmental hazard due to potential leaks—a hazard that’s incredibly expensive for homeowners to have corrected. These tanks were in common use before being replaced by modern heating solutions, but unfortunately, many tanks were left underground without being brought to the attention of new homeowners. We use a specialized magnetic locator to determine if a buried oil tank is present.
