HOUSE EXTERIOR

 

The exterior is the first line of defense against water intrusion, pests, and overall quality of the interior. Important items that are noted during the inspection are:

  • Water intrusion
  • Vegetation near structure.
  • Wood destroying organisms
  • Condition of roof

INTERIOR COMPONENTS

 

The plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and visible structural items are often overlooked during a purchase, but often cost the most to replace or repair. During the inspection we will look for:

  • Material defects
  • Any previously visible repairs.
  • MIssing/damaged components
  • Proper installation and function

RADON

 

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S., behind smoking. Due to the nature of this gas, every home has some level of Radon, new and old. Each home is different, your neighbor's house could have low levels, but yours may not. These reasons are why the EPA has established a set of parameters to determine if radon mitigation is recommended. Anything higher than 4 pCi/L is recommended for mitigation. This test can be performed as a stand alone or in addition to the inspection.
