INSPECTION SERVICES

We provide complete and ancillary home inspection services according to a Home Inspection Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Here are the services we offer:

FULL HOME INSPECTION:

A home is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. We will provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems, and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every issue that may exist, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

RADON GAS TEST:

Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses for radon. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.

MOLD INSPECTION:

Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. We will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and we’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.

INFRARED INSPECTION:

Infrared Certified InterNACHI logo

We use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, we can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. 

ANNUAL HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION:

Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let us help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, an inspection can verify whether your home maintenance practices are sufficient, and any problems have developed. 

MOVE-IN INSPECTION:

Are you selling your home? Let us inspect it before you list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates and/or repairs. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.

SEWER SCOPE INSPECTION:

We can see inside sewer lines and assess their condition.  We will use a special camera to scope your sewer line to visualize problems and blockages that are interfering with your plumbing system’s proper drainage. Using our locating equipment, we can also locate and mark on your property where those issues are underground. Finding and addressing problems now can head off catastrophic and expensive repairs later.  This service will include a narrated video showing the inside of your sewer line and any observed defects.

ROOF INSPECTION:

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? We will perform a standalone Roof Inspection & Certification and evaluate your roof from the eaves, as well as walk it (when it is safe to do so) to assess its overall condition, including the presence and status of flashing around chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.

4-POINT INSPECTION:

Many insurance companies require a 4-Point Inspection for homeowner’s insurance and renewals for an existing policy on an older home. The “four points” covered in this inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their approximate age, and assesses their overall condition. 

MOISTURE INSPECTION:

Moisture meters and infrared can help detect and quantify the amount of moisture that is actually in a specific building material. We use a moisture meter and infrared technology to check areas around plumbing pipes, air conditioning units, bathroom toilets and showers, and at wooden components near or in contact with the ground surface. Appliances with water leaks or condensation problems may cause elevated levels of moisture in unwanted areas. We are equipped to find the source of moisture and water problems in a house. Once discovered, all moisture intrusion problems should be immediately corrected before mold growth develops.

IRRIGATION SYSTEM INSPECTION:

In this inspection we will check the controller, visible water lines, presence of a backflow device, and run through the watering cycle for every zone. The most common problems we will be looking for are, cracked, clogged, broken, or improperly set sprinkler heads, damaged lines or backflow prevention device, malfunctioning valves or solenoids, or a faulty controller. Any of these problems may result in a malfunctioning system, poor spray patterns, inadequate coverage, or little or no water supply. We will also check for any other visible defects in the system.
