A home inspection is a thorough visual examination of a house or property. The purpose is to discover and assess any problems with the structure itself as well as its systems. This includes looking for signs of water damage, mold growth, structural defects, termite activity, fire hazards, etc.

Once we have completed the inspection, we will provide you with a report detailing any major findings as well as recommended solutions. The report will contain information about any repairs needed, as well as other important details. It will also list items like appliances, plumbing fixtures, heating systems, electrical wiring, roofing materials, insulation, windows, doors, foundation walls, floors, ceilings, decks, garages, sheds, fences, landscaping, etc., to help you understand the overall condition of the home.

While that choice is completely up to you we strongly recommend that you do. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States after cigarette smoke.  Radon is an odorless and invisible gas that can get into homes or buildings through small cracks or holes and build up to higher levels. Over time, breathing in high radon levels can cause lung cancer.  The first step is to have us test your radon levels.

Your sewer line is often forgotten about until it’s too late.  Don’t wait until then!  Sewer line replacement can cost you thousands.  Your sewer line could have roots, cracks or other issues that have damaged the line over time.  We recommend adding a sewer scope today to help give you some additional peace of mind.
