Pre-Drywall Inspections

If you're building a new home a pre-drywall inspection is one of the most important steps you can take during the building process. It's much easier and cost effective to find these defects while the home is being built as opposed to finding out later when you try to sell the home.

Builder's 1 Year Warranty Inspections

You should schedule this inspection before the builder's 1-year warranty has expired. This is a complete home inspection with the inspection report for you to hand to your builder. The builder may have to reimburse you or repair any defects found depending on the warranty.

Re-Inspection/Repair Verifications

After the initial inspection is completed and the seller's have completed repairs on the home. We can go back out to the home to verify that the repairs were made correctly and that the repaired systems are functioning as intended. This typically costs $225 depending on the repairs and location.

Radon Testing

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is a radioactive gas that can only be detected by radon tests. According to the EPA 1 in 15 homes in the U.S. is affected by Radon. We use an electronic radon monitor that is faster and more accurate than the charcoal kits.

Water Testing

The EPA recommends that you should test your drinking water every year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids and pH levels, especially if you have a new well, or have replaced or repaired pipes, pumps or the well casing. 

* Due to COVID-19 our water testing lab is unable to complete water testing.

Radon in Water Testing

Radon can also be in your drinking water, particularly if the water source is a well. The only way to know if you have high levels of radon in your drinking water is to have the water tested. 

* Due to COVID-19 our water testing lab is unable to complete radon in water testing.
