WDO TERMITE INSPECTION: $75

Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later. Please click here to know more about WDO Termite Inspection.

radon tester internachi certified inspector logo

RADON GAS TEST: $150

Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.

Certified Mold Inspector

MOLD INSPECTION:

Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.

Infrared Certified

INFRARED INSPECTION: $100

I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. By evaluating these images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

InterNACHI Certified Water Quality Tester

WATER QUALITY INSPECTION:

Our water quality inspection service is designed to assess the safety and purity of the water in your home. Our expert inspectors will conduct a thorough evaluation of the water supply, examining various parameters to ensure it meets quality standards. This inspection includes testing for contaminants, such as bacteria, lead, chemicals, and other potential hazards. We use state-of-the-art testing methods and equipment to provide accurate and reliable results. After the inspection, you will receive a detailed report outlining the findings, along with any recommended actions to address any identified issues.

Waiting Room
Certified Annual Home Maintenance Inspection

ANNUAL HOME MAINTENANCE INSPECTION:

Especially if you’re a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your home properly. Some tasks are seasonal, and some items require more frequent attention. Let me help you start on the path of responsible homeownership by identifying any issues, and educating you about what should be done each year to keep your home in top condition. Even if you’re a veteran homeowner, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient, or whether any problems have developed during the past year. 

Waiting Room
Certified STUCCO Inspector

EIFS STUCCO INSPECTION:

Stucco is an attractive exterior cladding that has superior insulation value, weather resistance, and longevity. It can be applied over a range of surfaces, including masonry, metal, and wood. Stucco requires an expert to properly apply and repair it. Stucco also requires specialized knowledge to accurately identify its different components. I’ll perform a non-invasive inspection to determine the type of stucco system on your home, and make recommendations for maintenance and repair, if necessary.

Waiting Room
Certified Move In Inspector

MOVE-IN INSPECTION:

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified® Seller’s Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.

POOL & SPA INSPECTION: $200

Your pool requires proper maintenance and regular inspection so that you can enjoy it for years to come.

Waiting Room
InterNACHI Certified Sewer Scope Inspector

SEWER SCOPE INSPECTION:

Are your sinks and tubs emptying too slowly? I will use a special camera to scope your sewer line to visualize any blockages that are interfering with your plumbing system’s proper drainage. Finding and addressing such problems now can head off catastrophic and expensive repairs later.

Waiting Room
Certified Septic System Inspector

SEPTIC SYSTEM INSPECTION:

I will conduct an inspection of your onsite wastewater (septic) treatment system, assess its overall condition and maintenance, test for functional operation, and advise you of my findings. If the system is overloaded, I can recommend further steps you can take to remedy the problem.

Waiting Room
Certified Commercial Building Inspector

COMMERCIAL BUILDING INSPECTION:

A commercial building inspection is meant to identify the current condition of the property as well as the cost that must be paid to make any of the necessary repairs. ... Everything from the interior of the building to the ventilation and air conditioning system will be checked during a commercial building inspection.

Waiting Room
Certified Roof Inspector

ROOF INSPECTION:

Do you need just a roof inspection performed for insurance or other purposes? I will perform a standalone Roof Inspection & Certification and evaluate your roof from the eaves, as well as walk it (when it is safe to do so) to assess its overall condition, including the presence and status of flashing, chimneys, vents, skylights, and other penetrations.

Waiting Room
Certified Pre-Drywall Inspector

PRE-DRYWALL INSPECTION:

One way to ensure that a house is built according to its specifications is by performing a pre-drywall inspection. “Pre-drywall” refers to a phase during the homebuilding process just after the installation of certain elements – such as the doors, windows, foundation, flooring, wall and roof components, plumbing and electrical rough-in – and right before the drywall is hung. This in-progress or construction-phase inspection is useful because drywall can obscure some aspects of the interior and make identifying or fixing any problems both difficult and expensive, once the new home is completely finished.

Waiting Room
Certified 4-point inspector

4-POINT INSPECTION:

Many insurance companies require a 4-Point Inspection for homeowner’s insurance and renewals for an existing policy on an older home. The “four points” covered in this limited inspection include the four vital systems of the home: the roof, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. This inspection identifies their components, determines their age, and assesses their overall condition. 

Waiting Room
Certified Wind Mitigation Inspector

WIND MITIGATION INSPECTION:

Wind mitigation helps limit the amount of wind damage inflicted on a home. Many homeowner's insurance companies offer incentives, such as premium discounts and rebates, for implementing specific protections. And if you’ve already made certain improvements, a Wind Mitigation Inspection can provide the verification you need to receive credits and discounts.

Waiting Room
Certified Healthy Home Inspector

HEALTHY HOME INSPECTION:

Scientific evidence demonstrates a solid relationship between housing conditions and human health. Studies on the economic burden of specific defects in homes show costs rising into the billions of dollars annually. Defects in the home contribute to both poor health and the economic burdens on society at large.

Waiting Room
Certified Drone Inspector

DRONE INSPECTION:

I use a state-of-the-art, camera-mounted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone to capture images of unsafe or hard-to-access areas, such as tall roofs. I can get an up-close look at any issues and defects that would otherwise not be properly inspected and reported. I can also take aerial photos of the property for real estate listings and informational purposes.

Waiting Room
moisture intrusion inspector

MOISTURE INSPECTION:

Moisture meters detect and measure moisture in building materials. I use them to check areas near plumbing, AC units, bathrooms, and wooden components in contact with the ground. Appliances can cause leaks or condensation, leading to elevated moisture levels. With a moisture meter, I locate the source of moisture issues. Immediate correction is necessary to prevent mold growth.

Waiting Room
plumbing inspector

PLUMBING INSPECTION:

A plumbing inspection is a systematic process of assessing the critical areas of the plumbing system of a property. It is performed by certified plumbers to avoid the risk of pipe corrosion, clogs, leaks, and burst tubes that can cause flooding and property damage.

Waiting Room
water-well
well inspector

PRIVATE WELL INSPECTION:

Private wells that are constructed properly are usually safe, but problems can occur that can introduce contaminants into the water supply. I’ll check your private well for basic structural issues, and take a water sample to test it for lead, microbial pollutants, and dangerous chemicals.

Waiting Room
Certified New Construction Inspector

NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION:

Are you building a new home? I’ll come out during different phases of the construction process to make sure your project is being executed according to your specs. I can verify that scheduled work has been completed before you make a payment to your contractor. I’ll also come out prior to project completion to help you and your general contractor devise a punch list of remaining items. This is not a code-compliance inspection for your contractor, but a New Construction Inspection for you.

Waiting Room
Repair Verification

REPAIR VERIFICATION:

Have you had remodeling or repair work done by a contractor to address a deficiency, or to adapt or modernize some structure or system of your home? I will inspect it to make sure that the materials, installation and workmanship meet quality standards and your specifications. This is not a code-compliance inspection, but an inspection to check that the work was completed properly.

Waiting Room

HOME ENERGY INSPECTION:

I’ll collect data using an advanced energy calculator developed by InterNACHI® to: • estimate the home’s yearly energy usage:

  • pinpoint potential energy inefficiencies

  • develop recommendations for energy improvements

  • determine your potential energy savings.

The Home Energy eBook is included with your Home Energy Report. It describes additional steps you can take right now to save energy, increase your family’s comfort, and protect the environment.

Certified Deck Inspector

DECK INSPECTION:

A deck inspection should progress in much the same order as deck construction. Inspectors should start at the bottom. If a deck is deemed unsafe from underneath, the inspector should not walk out onto the deck to inspect decking, handrails, etc. The inspector should stop and report the safety issues.

Waiting Room
Electrical Inspector

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM INSPECTION:

An electrical home inspection provides a thorough examination of your entire electrical system, ensuring all electrical wires, systems, and components (such as appliances) meet legal safety standards.

Waiting Room
Certified Chimney Inspector

CHIMNEY & FIREPLACE INSPECTION:

A level-one chimney inspection includes a visual check of the fireplace and chimney without any special equipment or climbing up on the roof. The inspector will come to your house with a flashlight; look for damage, obstructions, creosote buildup, and soot; and tell you if the chimney requires sweeping.
