What kind of home inspection service are you looking for?
Here’s an Index of Services I offer.
Full Home Inspection
This is my full, comprehensive and most detailed service I offer. When buying a new home, it’s imperative you get one done, in order to get an easy to read report that details the present status of the house. More details about this service here: Full Home Inspection.
Mold Inspection and Testing
Mold is present everywhere and scientists still don’t have a definite answer on how it affects us humans. This service is supposed to offer you an insight into whether or not there are increased mold amounts in the home you’re about to purchase or move into, or after a flood recovery remediation.
Radon Gas Testing
Radon is a radioactive gas naturally produced in the Earth’s crust. It is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert. Unless you test for it, there is no way of telling how much is present. I can perform radon testing to put your mind at ease when it comes to this issue, which according to the Surgeon General of the United States is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.
Pool and Spa Inspection
Pools and Spas (Hot Tubs) are a staple in today’s modern society. They are prevalent in the area I serve, that’s why I made sure I’m certified to perform inspections on these items. They are often overlooked in a real estate transaction, but can cause real big issues in the future if they are not properly maintained and cared for.
New Construction Inspection
You’re having a new house built and it would be great if you could be there to make sure the contractors you hired are doing their job properly and according to modern standards of practice. Unfortunately you live out of town at the moment, or maybe your full-time job and family commitments don’t allow you the luxury to do just that. That’s why you want to hire me and have me look over the project at different phases/times in order to make sure that you get a good and sturdy home.
11th Month Home Warranty Inspection
You’ve bought a new house and it came with a standard 12 month warranty. There are a lot of defects that can appear after 11 months of living in the house. Why not get peace of mind and have the builder honor their warranty before it runs out? After it runs out, you’re liable for all costs of the repairs.
Often called “4 Point Insurance Inspection”, is typically performed for a home owner when requested by their insurance company to obtain a new insurance policy or renewing an existing policy. A “4 Point Insurance Inspection” is far less in scope than a standard home inspection. This “4 Point Insurance Inspection” is a limited, visual survey of the heating/air conditioning, roof, electrical and plumbing systems.
You should always get a home inspection before buying a property, especially when you’re buying a bank-owned foreclosure. In such cases, it may be impossible to find out how well the home was cared for, or whether major damage was done right before the past owners left the property. If the inspection goes well, you’ll enter into the deal with peace of mind and a better idea of what repairs you’ll have to deal with. That alone is worth the price of an inspection. If the inspection reveals a costly disaster, you can back out of the deal and save tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Private Well/Septic System Inspection
Did you know that 1 in 4 homes in the United States of America are not connected to a public water supply and/or public septic system? That’s why this kind of inspection is so important when you’re about to purchase a home that has a private well and/or septic system and make sure you’re making a safe purchase when it comes to this. Get peace of mind before you have to deal with a backed up toilet. This is one of the most important services after a home inspection is performed.
“Aging in place” is the phenomenon describing senior citizens’ ability to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. Those who age in place will not have to move from their present residence in order to secure necessary support services in response to their changing needs. You may get recommendations for corrections and adaptations to the home to improve maneuverability, accessibility, and safety for elderly occupants.
Annual Home Maintenance Inspection
This service is geared towards people who own a second home in the area and who want to make sure their house is properly maintained and cared for. This service can be useful also to new home owners who are hesitant on how to properly maintain their houses and who want peace of mind that they are not missing important clues that can lead to bigger damages if not addressed properly and timely.
