Serving the North Carolina Triangle Region
A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home. The home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house. It is not an inspection to verify compliance with appropriate codes. Home inspections identify current and potential future problems then recommend appropriate solutions.
Pre-inspections can give you an opportunity to promote what’s great about your home. If your inspector gives you any good news — like your furnace is still under warranty — you can promote those in your listing. Just making the results of your pre-inspection available to buyers is a way to build trust. Building trust with your buyer is especially important if you’re selling for sale by the owner (FSBO), as you’ll be working with your buyer directly.
Post Purchase Inspection
Didn’t get an inspection but want to learn more about your new house? A post-purchase inspection will provide the buyer with information about the systems and components of the home. Your inspector will assess the roofing, foundation, attic, HVAC, plumbing, electrical system and other interior and exterior features. After the inspection, you will receive a detailed report of the inspector’s findings.
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. An estimated 21,000 people nationally die each year from radon-induced lung cancer. Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and chemically inert radioactive gas. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil and water. Testing for radon is the only way to know how much is present in a building.
New Construction Inspection (Phase Inspection
A new construction inspection, also known as a new home inspection, is an inspection of a newly-built property before closing. A third-party professional inspector conducts the inspection to assess the home’s structure, systems, and other aspects. After the inspection, your inspector will deliver a report with the key findings. If any problems were discovered during the inspection, you can ask the contractor to fix them before the project is complete. Usually consists of a pre-drywall, at closing and 11 month inspections so the customer knows exactly what they are getting and corrections can be made before the contractor warranty expires.
Water Quality Testing
A laboratory test can be used to detect one particular contaminant of concern or several common impurities together. A lab test report will usually tell you not only what your water contains, but how the quantities of these contaminants compare to their individual public health regulations.
A pest inspection is a thorough visual search for wood destroying insects (WDI). Termites and various other bugs like powder post beetles, old house borers, or carpenter ants can be a concern to your home.
Septic Tank Inspection
A lot of people forget about the septic system because it’s out of sight and out of mind until there is a problem. An inspection can catch potential problems and may save you from having to replace the entire septic system. It’s important whether you are buying or selling to know that your septic system is in good shape.
A well inspection is a non-invasive evaluation of your private water source. Inspecting the yield/flow of the well, pressure tanks, and all the visual components.
