We recommend scheduling this inspection if you’re in the beginning stages of selling a home. Before you make your listing, we’ll thoroughly assess the condition of your property, taking note of potential defects that we identify along the way. You’ll then be able to address our findings as you see fit, either by seeking out repairs or by disclosing the information to prospective buyers so that negotiations aren’t disrupted by poor communication once the buyer’s own inspector is brought into the mix.
New Construction Inspection
This inspection should be scheduled before the builder’s final walkthrough of a new home. We’ll arrive to the project site to evaluate the completed structural areas of the home and the installed mechanical systems. If we take note of defective materials or potential safety concerns, you can relay the information to the builder so that the situation can be resolved before the project is complete and the responsibility falls on the homeowner’s shoulders.
Main Line Sewer Scope
This inspection service is performed by a licensed third-party specialist. A specially designed camera will be inserted into the main line of a home’s sewer system to check for pre-existing damage or signs of extensive wear that may need addressed before problems begin.
Radon is an odorless and invisible gas with radioactive properties. The gas naturally forms underground and can eventually rise up to enter the structure of a home. This inspection service will be performed by a certified third-party specialist who will make sure that your prospective home is free from radon contamination.
A licensed and insured third-party termite specialist will perform this service. A home will be thoroughly swept by the specialist to look for signs of termite damage and ongoing infestations. If evidence of termites is discovered, you’ll be able to take up the issue with the seller of the home as long as this service is scheduled prior to an agreement to terms.
