A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation.

Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The home inspector will test/look at over 400 items during the home inspection. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested.

Upon completion a detailed home inspection report will be e-mailed to you.


NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION

New construction home inspections are performed at the completion of construction, but prior to your final walk through with the Builder's Customer Service Representative or Superintendent.

It is always a good idea to verify that utilities (gas, water, and electric) have been turned on, either by you or the builder depending on the builder's policy.

The home inspection should be scheduled just a day or two before your final walk through with the builder. This will ensure that most, if not all, last minute items have been completed prior to your home inspection.

Upon completion a detailed home inspection report will be e-mailed to you.

Radon Testing

Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health.

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to the EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes.  (EPA 402-R-03-003)

The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon.

We use a variety of measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a minimum period of 48 hours.

You should test for radon and take action if your recorded radon level is greater than 4.0 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). If your radon level is above 4.0 pCi/L radon mitigation systems can reduce the level of radon to a safe level in your home.
