Pre-listing inspection is a sellers' inspection. Sellers have a home inspector inspect their home prior to getting it on the market. Having this inspection completed allows them to provide information for the disclosure statement and gives them the opportunity to correct any issues. The pre-listing inspection is a great marketing tool for the seller and a peace of mind for the anxious buyer. Sellers can provide the report to the buyer and show documentation of the corrected issues.
Buyers inspections is for those purchasing a home. Buyers want to be educated about the condition of the home and its systems prior to making a huge financial and emotional investment. The home inspection gives the buyer the ability to make an educated and informed decision about the purchase of a home. No one should have to deal with unexpected repairs as soon as you move into a new home, neither should you. Knowledge is power, know your new home.
Home warranty inspection is for homeowners that have a warranty on their home that may be expiring soon. Usually this inspection is performed in the tenth or eleventh month of the warranty period to detect any issues prior to the warranty expiration. The homeowner can have the issues corrected free of charge, as long as the warranty covers those particular defects. Homeowners are encouraged to read the warranty policy or insurance policy for coverage details.
Homeowner inspection is an inspection for homeowners that want to understand the condition of their current home. If you own a home that did not have a pre-purchase or buyer inspection, a homeowner inspection can help you assess the condition and needs of your home. This inspection will give you helpful information if you are planning to remodel or make any changes to your home. Your unbiased and detailed inspection will get you on a good start.
Moisture Intrusion inspections are offered as a walk and talk service only. The main focus of the inspection is to observe and detect how moisture is being leaked, or intruded into a property. We use thermal imaging cameras, moisture meters, bore scope cameras, ladders and drones to identify the source of the problem. Homeowners are welcome to take down notes.
Mold Testing is usually followed after a moisture intrusion inspection has been performed. If we suspect fungi growth present customers are invited to hire us to perform a mold testing service. We will take at a minimum 2 samples both air or surface sampling. Any extra samples will be an additional charge. We will then send the samples to a laboratory. Once done that, the results are normally ready within 24 hours. We will send you the report and further discuss the results. If both moisture intrusion and mold testing services are combined we can offer a reduced price.
Radon Testing (Only offered when combined with our standard home inspection service) is a service that we offer through a third party company called Radon Detection Specialists, Inc. We utilize a database system that allows us to inform our clients what the radon levels are in the area they are trying to purchase. We recommend a radon test performed if the percentage of homes that tested at or above the action level is 30% or more.
Roof Inspection is performed as a stand alone service. We will walk and talk issues found. Clients are welcome to take down notes for future reference. We use a combination of ladders, surface walking and drone (if needed).
