Standard Home Inspection
I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.
I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.
As a Certified Professional Inspector trained by InterNACHI, I adhere to a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I will inspect all of the following, when visible and accessible:
Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
Private Well Inspection
Private wells that are constructed properly are usually safe, but problems can occur that can introduce contaminants into the water supply. I’ll check your private well for basic structural issues and take a sample to test it for lead, microbial pollutants and dangerous chemicals.
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it is also the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. The Surgeon General and the Environment Protection Agency recommend testing for radon because 1 out of every 15 homes has unsafe levels indoors. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested, and you should too!
Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot and ruin dry wall. Most importantly, mold can cause serious health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I will take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.
Water Quality Testing
Let me test your potable water supply, especially if your property has a private well, cistern or septic system. I will check it for coliform and other harmful bacteria which can endanger your family’s health.
