General Home Inspection

- Fireplace & Chimney
- Plumbing System

Carbon monoxide testing is available upon request—at no extra cost!
It’s certainly possible to sell a home without getting it inspected—but why take the chance? A Pre-Listing Inspection will give you a better idea of your home’s value and condition before you show it to prospective buyers. This will promote smoother negotiations and prevent frustrating complications that can transpire when undisclosed defects are discovered by the buyer.
New Construction Inspection
A qualified second opinion on your brand new home’s condition is a wise thing to seek out before moving in. As the contractors finalize the building process, we’ll meticulously evaluate the home’s readily accessible components and installed systems. If any problems are discovered, you’ll be able to address them with the builder before it becomes more costly and inconvenient for all parties involved.
After repairs are completed on components that were found to be defective during our initial inspection, we’re happy to return to the property to take another look. We’ll evaluate the components in question for proper installation as well as safe and sound operation.
Mold inside a home can be a nightmare. It’s costly to remove, harmful to residents, and it can cause all of these problems without anyone being aware of its presence. We’re trained to locate areas of mold and the moisture that harbors it—so that you can arrange removal if necessary and take action to prevent future problems.
Radon is a carcinogenic gas that can work into homes through cracks in the foundation and other structural gaps. Originating underground from the breakdown of certain types of rock and soil, radon is both odorless and invisible—making it impossible to detect by ordinary means. We’re trained to test a home for radon using sensitive instruments that are able to detect even small concentrations. If the test comes back positive, we offer long-term testing to ensure that your home remains safe after you’ve arranged removal.
