Structural Conditions

Foundations, Doors, Windows, Trim

The basic structure and foundation is the heart of any home.  We start by thoroughly inspecting all the structures of the house, including the foundation, doors, windows and trim.  We look for water infiltration issues, rot, mold, mildew and other issues that we might find.

Heating and Cooling Systems

Plumbing, Furnaces, Fixtures, Main Shutoff

The heating and cooling systems are crucial components of any home.  A system that doesn’t function could mean costly repairs.  We inspect the entire system and inform you of any problems so you can assess costs before purchase.

Roof and Attic

Roofs, Attics, Gutters, Downspouts

Without a sound roof, moisture can find its way into your attic and other structures of your house causing decay, rot and mold.

We inspect the condition of the roof plus the flashing, gutters, insulation and ventilation.  We’ll locate and report on any problems plus give you an assessment of the approximate life expectancy for your roof.

Electrical System

Electrical Panels, Breakers, Fuses, Grounding, GCFI, AFCI Outlets

The electrical system is another fundamental component of a home.  If problems are not discovered and left unresolved, it could lead to many more repairs bills and be a hazard to your family’s safety.

We carefully check the electrical system including the electrical box and other components and point out what may need attention.

Radon

Radon is a naturally occuring colorless, odorless radioactive gas that is present in some homes.  It is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer.

We are certified radon measurement specialists utilizing the latest technology.  Radon measurement is fast (a test is complete in two days) and accurate and will inform you if any radon mitigation measures are necessary.  

Rodents, Pests and the Unexpected

The outside likes to try to find its way into your house.  Mice, ants, cockroaches and even birds may find their way into any warm and inviting house looking for refuge.

We look for structural damage from pest infestations and we’ll point them out so you can make a more informed purchasing decision.

We’ve inspected thousands of homes in 24 years and there are many other signs of potential problems that we look at.
