Inspection Services

Services Offered

Pre-Purchase: Our standard and most common type of inspection, typically requested by the buyer during a residential or commercial real estate purchase.

Pre-Listing: This inspection is requested by the seller of the property in order to identify any potential defects in their home prior to putting their home up for sale. This can also be used as a potential marketing tool to highlight the quality of a home or in order to speed up closing on the sale by offering the home as ‘pre-inspected’ to potential buyers.

New Home Warranty: Most new home builders include a one-year warranty with the purchase of their houses. A homeowner may want to have a professional inspection done on their home before the builder’s warranty expires. The homeowner can then pass the report on to their builder’s warranty department for adjustments, repairs or replacements of home components.

**All pricing is the same for our services regardless of what type of inspection is being conducted.**

Sewer Scope

$300

Standard home inspections do not cover the structural integrity or condition of sewer and drainage line systems. With a video camera inspection on your sewer line, you’ll be able to know if your sewer lines are being compromised by: tree roots, debris, broken drain lines, clogs, sewer pipe misalignment. If there is a sewer problem identified with your video sewer inspection, you can negotiate to get it fixed before you move in or to take the cost of repairs out of the home purchase price

  • Testing is completed NASSCO certified technicians.

  • Picture and video as well as a detailed report will be sent to you and also be included with the home inspection report.

Short Term (96 Hour) Radon Testing

$300

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon gas is inert, colorless and odorless. Breathing radon over time increases your risk of lung cancer.

During a short-term Radon test we will attend the home and set up a commercial grade Radon detection monitor for a duration of 96 hours (min).

  • Upon completion of the test a digital report will be sent to you and also be included with the home inspection report.
  • A quote for mitigation is also provided if mitigation is recommended. This is a useful tool when negotiating with the Home Seller as you will be able to accurately include this cost in the negotiation
