A home inspection is a visual inspection of the structure and components of a home to find items that are not performing correctly or items that are unsafe. If a problem or a symptom of a problem is found the home inspector will include a description of the problem in a written report and may recommend further evaluation.
A home inspector’s report will review the condition of the home’s heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure. We also offer additional services not included in a typical home inspection, such as radon and water testing.
Thermal Imaging Inspections are an advanced, non-invasive form of technology that allows home inspectors to show home and business owners things about their property that can’t be revealed using traditional conventional inspection methods.
Radon is considered by some to be a dangerous gas and is considered by EPA to be a national health problem. Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that occurs naturally everywhere. Radon is present in all homes, regardless of when the home was built or what type of foundation it has. New homes and homes built on slabs are often mistaken as radon-free. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends radon gas testing on the sale of all homes.
