Our comprehensive home inspections:
A pre-purchase home inspection not only identifies costly repairs, but gives you better negotiating power to get a great price. It also gives you the peace of mind that the home you’re considering will be safe for your family.
A pre-listing home inspection is a great tool to attract serious buyers and reduce negotiations. And it can help decrease the time to close on your home.
For new construction homes, the best time to identify a potential problem is before enclosing the walls with drywall. Our experienced inspector examines structural, electrical, and plumbing systems.
After settling into a new construction home, it is important to identify hidden problems before your builder’s new home warranty expires. Our report gives you the support to take full advantage of your warranty.
Annual Home Health Check-up

Additional services as needed:
Radon Gas Testing
As InterNACHI Certified Radon Testers, our inspectors are specially trained to evaluate radon in your home. A 48-hour continuous monitoring test helps determine if radon mitigation is needed or if an existing system is working properly.
Our handheld scanners allow us to “see” through walls to uncover moisture damage, leaks, or insulation/ductwork issues. An infrared scan is included with most of our home inspections or can be scheduled separately when a problem is suspected.
Termite & Pest Inspections
Areas of high humidity and moisture can be prone to infestation by termites and other wood destroying pests. A home inspection can help prevent a costly repair or mitigate property damage.
Septic System Inspections
Backup from a septic tank can be a hassle and costly to fix. Real estate experts advise that all homes with a septic tank should be inspected before closing.
The quality of your water can have a big impact on the health of your family. Real estate experts recommend testing of all homes with a well before closing or whenever there is a concern about the supply or quality of your water.
Swimming Pool Inspections
Improperly maintained swimming pools increase the risk of electrocution or property damage. Realtors often recommend a pool inspection before closing for any home with an in-ground pool or whenever a safety issue is suspected.
Water Quality Testing
Testing your water can reduce your family’s risk of illness or exposure to inorganic materials when your home uses a private well, has older pipes that may contain lead, or when there is possible contamination from the surrounding area (such as after a flood).
Air Quality Testing
Poor ventilation, high heat, and high humidity can increase allergy symptoms. Air quality testing can give you valuable information when experiencing breathing, heart or lung issues or before purchasing a home for a sensitive individual.
Exposure to mold can cause a variety of health issues. Problems are most common after a flood or in homes with a history of water damage from roofing, exterior wall, or plumbing issues. Mold testing can help assess the severity and type of mold present.
Many homes built before 1978 are known to contain asbestos. Testing is recommended before renovating an older home to determine necessary precautions to decrease the risk of lung cancer.
Lead found in paint, plumbing, and other construction materials can be a serious issue, especially for young children. Experts recommend testing of homes built before 1978 if renovations are planned or if materials that may contain lead are exposed.
