When buying a home, obtaining a home inspection on the property is a wise investment to be done before you close. The home inspection is a visual inspection of the accessible major systems and components of the home for the conditions that exist at the time of the inspection. Neglecting this important part of the real estate transaction could end up costing you expensive repairs. It’s our goal to make the inspection process as clear, concise, and easy as possible for you.
Making the decision to sell your home is a huge step for most homeowners, but once the decision is made, obtaining a pre-listing home inspection is a must. To avoid the unpleasant surprises a buyer’s home inspector may discover, homeowners who are considering selling their home will get a pre-listing inspection done to get a realistic view of the condition of the home. This allows them to fix or repair any issues and helps to ease any upfront anxiety with the buyer.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking. If you smoke and live in a home with high radon levels, you increase your risk of developing lung cancer. Having your home tested is the only effective way to determine whether you and your family are at risk of high radon exposure.
We recommend when purchasing a home, a mold air sample test be done during the home inspection service, especially if the home has been vacant, has had water issues, or if someone is particularly sensitive to mold. A mold test can help identify if elevated mold spores are present in the air.
An infrared camera can identify thermal patterns that are often associated with moisture intrusion. Thermal imaging is a technology that has many benefits in a wide range of applications. Thermal imaging allows people to see what their eyes cannot see: invisible heat, objects covered in the dark, or an abnormal elevation of heat.
A maintenance inspection is essentially the same as a home buyer inspection, but the inspection is done for the current owner. Most homeowners who have a maintenance inspection done have been in their homes for several years, and may or may not have had their home inspected when they purchased it.
Lead paint is still present in millions of homes, especially homes built before 1978, sometimes under layers of newer paint. If the paint is in good shape, the lead paint is usually not a problem. Deteriorating lead-based paint (peeling, chipping, chalking, cracking, damaged, or damp) is a hazard and needs immediate attention.
Light Commercial inspections are completed for properties like apartment buildings (more than four units), mixed-use spaces (combined residential and commercial spaces), smaller office buildings, and retail stores. The commercial inspection results are reported in a concise, computer-generated, comprehensive report of the building’s overall condition.
