Buying a home is a large investment, and making sure the house is in the best condition possible is a top concern for any buyer, regardless if it’s your first home or an investment property. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying a home, but you’ll want to make sure you include a home inspection in your list of priorities to avoid any potential issues or unforeseen costs as you get further into the homebuying process
A detailed and systematic inspection of the property, its structure, design,roof, HVAC, Plumbing and electrical systems. When it comes to buying a home, you want to make sure you know all there is to know about the property before signing on the dotted line
We will locate and assess the septic tank, sludge layer, and absorption area to ensure all components are in working order and that the tank is the right size for the home.
Nearly 1 out of every 5 homes in the United States has elevated radon levels, and the EPA recommends that all houses be tested for radon levels during the point of sale. In most cases, you can request the seller’s previous radon test results as part of the home inspection and use that as a point of comparison.
Just because you can’t see mold doesn’t mean there isn’t any lurking away in your dream home. In fact, a mold problem could indicate that the home is harboring larger issues such as water damage, leaks, or even flooding. Our inspector conducts a visual assessment and samples the air and surfaces in the home to determine the type of mold present. This type of home inspection may even use thermal imaging to locate damp or cold spots behind walls where mold tends to thrive.
Termites and other wood-loving pests can cause irreparable damage to the property that is costly to replace. A general home inspection may show areas of damage that might attract these unwanted guests, but only a trained specialist can definitively identify if there is continuing presence of pests, such as termites, carpenter ants, rodents, spiders, in your home’s exterior and interior, how large the infestation is, and how long the pest has been there.
While they could add up in costs and time, specialized home inspections can give you peace of mind in the long run. These types of home inspections help reveal problems in-depth that a general home inspection might only highlight as a possible issue. You can notify the current owners as soon as possible to get the repairs underway in case you want to continue with the home purchase. Addressing these issues early on in the home buying process is key to saving you money down the road.success throughout the years.
