Our services don’t stop at home inspections! We perform a variety of ancillary inspections and services to ensure every aspect of the property can have a detailed description of the current condition.
We conduct an incredibly comprehensive septic evaluation and provide education to the client regarding how the system works, necessary maintenance, and tips to extend the life of the system.

203 K Evaluations
These are completed to determine if the home may be refinanced or needs repairs completed with a 203(k) Loan.
Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that is undetectable by our senses. We test levels over a 48-hour period to determine if it is present and can offer referrals to mitigate it, if necessary.
We use special cameras to examine the pipe from the home to the city connection in the street, checking for type of pipe, tree root infiltration, blockages, and other damage.
Air Quality/Mold Testing
If organic growth is noted during an inspection, we can do both swab and air samples to determine the type of growth and the levels in the air.
Using specialized equipment, we can check for temperature differences in walls and ceilings which may be indicative of water leaks or poor insulation.
In homes built prior to 1980, asbestos may be a concern in insulation, “popcorn” ceilings, or tile. Our inspectors are trained in obtaining samples which are sent to a lab for analysis.
Lead Paint Testing
In homes built prior to 1978, lead based paint may be present. If this is of concern to you, our inspectors can get a sample and have it analyzed at our lab.
