Pre-Listing Inspection

This inspection service will help home-sellers achieve their goal of a fairly valued and overall successful sale by shedding light on the property’s condition ahead of time. We’ll be able to spot deficiencies before a listing is made so that you can adjust your plans accordingly—whether that consists of making repairs to keep the home’s value high, or simply informing prospective buyers about existing issues to keep negotiations moving steadily forward.

New Construction Inspection

While your prospective new home is being built, there’s a lot that can happen that may detract from the completed home’s overall condition—in fact, it should be expected. Building a home is no easy task, and mistakes are bound to happen. That’s we offer this comprehensive inspection service, evaluating the home before the builder’s final walkthrough so that you know what types of issues you may need to address during final negotiations.

Home Maintenance Inspection

This inspection service is all about keeping your home better maintained—which will hold the value up over time, and prevent you from experiencing unnecessary stress as a homeowner. We’ll inspect the readily accessible areas of the home, providing a full report of our findings that will highlight maintenance issues and offer strategies about how to take care of them.

Re-inspections

A re-inspection should be scheduled by the prospective buyer of a home after being notified that the seller has fulfilled requested repairs. We’ll then return to the property to make sure that’s the case, carefully examining the state of repairs while also checking to confirm that other components were not damaged during the repair process.

Radon

Radon Testing

We recommend that home-buyers have their prospective investments tested for potential radon contamination—and whether the home is old or new, it’s still a good idea for you to consider. Radon is an invisible and odorless gas that is one of the leading causes of lung cancer according to the EPA. When we perform this inspection service, we’ll utilize specialized equipment to determine whether or not the radon levels in the home are currently at safe levels.

Water

Water Testing

Instant access to clean water is a luxury that’s often taken for granted, but it’s one of the most integral components of a good home. For this inspection service, we’ll test the water from the home’s tap and well to determine if there are harmful contaminants present. Some of the contaminants that the water will be tested for include coliform bacteria, heavy metals, nitrates, and nitrites.
