SERVICES WE OFFER
- Buyer’s Pre-Purchase
This type of inspection is the ideal way to ensure that as the buyer, you are informed and educated about the property you are purchasing whether it is a re-sale home or brand new construction.
- Seller’s Pre-Listing
When considering selling your home this is an excellent step to take to prepare the home and help to get it in its best possible shape before listing it. The pre-listing inspection will help to reduce the possibility of surprises from unknown deficiencies that might, otherwise, appear in an inspection performed by your buyer’s inspector.
- Buyer’s 11 Month Builder Warranty
This inspection is usually performed thirty days prior to the expiration of the builder’s One-Year New Home Warranty. It presents concerns you may want to bring to the builder’s attention and allows time for any necessary repairs to be made.
- Pre-Drywall Inspection
This type of inspection is performed prior to the builder installing insulation and drywall in a home. The purpose is to evaluate the structural and mechanical components for potential defects and address them before they are covered up.
A re-inspection can be ordered by the client after an inspection has been completed. It is a new evaluation of systems or components that had been found to be in need of repair, or further evaluation, during the original home inspection.
- Homeowner’s Home Maintenance
Home: It is important to have your home routinely inspected to make you aware of arising conditions to help you prevent potentially major and costly repairs. This is similar to a checkup visit to the doctor or dentist that need only happen every four years or so.
Re-testing Radon in air: Re-testing is recommended by the EPA every two years due to fluctuations in radon levels over time. In addition, renovations to the home, especially as pertain to the heating and cooling systems, or living pattern changes, like plans to live in a lower level of the house such as a basement that was previously tested but is not currently lived in, would be reasons to re-test.
Re-testing Well water: The EPA recommends well water to be re-checked every one to five years depending on the type of tests needed. We will be able to help advise you on the best course of action for your testing.

We collect and send samples of your well water to a local certified laboratory for analysis. Depending on the type of tests to be performed (of which there are several) the turnaround time for test results can take from one day to a week or more.
