Additional Inspection Services
Before you begin the process of selling your home, you should bring in a professional home inspector to evaluate the condition of the property. When this information is obtained prior to the home being listed on the market, you’ll have time to make repairs as you deem them necessary, and you’ll be in a position to improve communication with prospective buyers to ensure that negotiations proceed as smoothly and painlessly as possible.
Home Maintenance Inspection
This inspection service can be a huge asset to homeowners by identifying home maintenance issues and viable solutions that will keep the home in the best possible condition. We’ll thoroughly evaluate the entire home, describing the nature of potential issues we encounter and making recommendations that will help you keep the home maintained appropriately.
Over the years, more and more discoveries have been made about the dangers of radon gas, and this has underscored the importance of having a home tested before a real estate transaction occurs. We’ll use specialized measurement equipment to test the radon levels in your prospective home—and if they’re confirmed to be over a safe threshold, professional radon mitigation may be recommended.
We’re able to perform a test of a home’s water supply by collecting samples from the well and tap to be sent off to a local laboratory for analysis. This is an important inspection service for every home-buyer to schedule because it will inform you of unsafe contaminants that may be present in the home’s water—including heavy metals and coliform bacteria—that could be expensive to eliminate.
In new homes and old homes alike, if there are certain material or structural defects, mold can all too easily begin to develop due to moisture intrusion. This inspection service will thoroughly test a home for mold growth, paying close attention to the hidden areas where mold often begins to form.
For this inspection service, we’ll assess the condition of a home’s septic system—including the septic housing and accessible mechanical features. When necessary, we’ll use a specialized camera to take a look at the components that ordinarily cannot be accessed safely. We’ll also let you know if the septic tank will need to be pumped.
As necessary during the inspection process, we’ll utilize tools such as thermal imaging, aerial drone photography, and a moisture meter to maximize the accuracy of our findings.
