PROPERTY INSPECTIONS

A home inspection is an opportunity to get an understanding of the condition of the different systems of a house. Although a property inspection is only visual, we are able to gain a comprehensive understanding of the condition of a house.

The inspector will examine all structures and major systems of a home. This includes structural components, basement, foundation, windows, doors, floors, ceilings, walls, attic, roof, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. The inspector will identify important factors for you to consider as you make your home ownership decision. Your home inspector is always happy to answer any questions you have during the inspection.

RADON TESTING

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that forms naturally when radioactive metals break down in rocks, soil and groundwater. People can be exposed to radon primarily from breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes. The amount of radon that escapes from the soil to enter the house depends on the weather, soil porosity, soil moisture and the suction within the house. The EPA recommends testing for radon if you are buying a home or selling your home. For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested. For more information we recommend you review the EPA’s Home Buyer’s/Seller’s Guide to Radon which can be found here.
