This inspection is a detailed evaluation of a home that is going to be put up for sale. Prior to sending out your listing for the home, we’ll thoroughly inspect the property for defective or damaged components. Knowledge of this information can support a successful sale by giving you a chance to make repairs and to keep prospective buyers up to speed throughout the negotiating process.
New Construction Inspection
A new home should be evaluated by a licensed third-party home inspector prior to construction being completed. This will give you knowledge of potential defects or unsafe material application so that the matter can be taken up with the builders at a time that’s still convenient.
We’re licensed to perform our own residential Termite Inspections. We’ll methodically look over the entire home for signs of termite damage so that you’ll be prepared to negotiate repairs with the seller of the home if necessary. We’ll also look for signs of current infestations.
Radon is a naturally-occurring gas that leaves radioactive compounds behind as it breaks down. Because the gas is odorless, invisible, and can easily enter a home through cracks in the foundation, it’s important to have the home tested by a professional. Radon is known to cause serious lung conditions over long-time exposure, including lung cancer. Inspector Michael Mackey is a licensed Radon Measurement Tech who performs radon tests in schools as well as homes.
DRONE ROOF INSPECTIONS
We will always walk the roof if it is accessible and safe to do so. If a roof is too tall, steep, damaged, or debris-covered to walk, or if weather conditions are unsafe, we will still be able to perform a high quality roof inspection by employing a drone equipped with a camera that can be remotely controlled.
In the 1930s, heating oil was the most economical way to fuel home furnaces. The oil was delivered to the home as needed and stored in a tank located in the basement, outside the house, or buried in the yard.
