Radon Testing and Mitigation

Radon Testing and Mitigation

Radon is a toxic gas that causes health conditions as severe as lung cancer. In fact, it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and the leading cause of lung cancer among those who do not use tobacco products. Radon cannot be seen, tasted, or smelled. We use a Continuous Radon Monitor to measure radon levels in the home throughout our inspection.

If dangerous levels of radon are found in a home, we also offer Mitigation services. By creating suction underneath the home with a Subslab Depressurization System or a Submembrane Depressurization system (if the home has a crawlspace), we can create an easy path through which radon can escape. The home’s radon level will be measured after mitigation to ensure that it is safe. Call us today for radon consulting, and check out the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website for more information about radon.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging is offered as needed with a General Home Inspection at no additional cost. With an infrared thermal imaging camera, we can visualize areas of heat loss and excessive heat that the unaided human eye cannot detect. The images created help us find moisture intrusion, electrical problems, and more.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

We offer Pre-Listing Inspections for home sellers. By having the home inspected before it’s listed, sellers can be made aware of any issues that buyers might find and get to repair them ahead of time. This increases negotiating power and makes the home more appealing to potential purchasers.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction Inspection

We will do a New Construction Inspection on new homes before the builder’s final walkthrough. During the inspection, we check for any defects in construction and issues that the builder may have overlooked.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Newly constructed homes often come with a one-year builder’s warranty. The warranty is for defects in construction, so that the new owner doesn’t have to pay for damages covered by it. We will inspect a home during the 11th month, finding the problems that the warranty covers so that they can be repaired before the warranty runs out.
