  • Why an inspection is important...

A home purchase may be the largest investment of your life. Before you purchase the property you should learn as much as you can including what may need to be repaired.

A home inspection will also point out all the positive aspects of a home, as well as, required ongoing maintenance that will be necessary to keep the property in good condition. By having a professional home inspection you will have a clear understanding of the home you are purchasing so you can make a confident decision in this purchase.

A home inspection can also be valuable if you have owned your home for a long period of time. The inspection can identify potential problems and recommend solutions that will potentially save you a great deal of money in the future.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging can detect many things that the human eye cannot see!

Advanced technology is only as good as the quality of the equipment and the experience of the user. I have been certified in the thermal imaging and have invested over nine thousand dollars in FLIR thermal imaging equipment, allowing me to offer you the most advanced technology in the industry.

 

Energy Loss

Thermal Imaging has the ability to detect missing insulation and air leaks with no damage to the home.

 

Moisture Problems

Thermal Imaging can detect moisture in walls, under floors, under roofing materials and many more places not visible by the human eye.

 

Electrical Issues

Thermal Imaging can detect electrical issues before they become a fire hazard.

Radon Testing

EPA Recommendations

(per the EPA website http://www.epa.gov/radon/pubs/citguide.html)

*Test your home/business for radon — it's easy and inexpensive.
*Fix your home/business if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher.
*Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced.
*Radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.

Radon Health Risks
* Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003). The numbers of deaths from other causes are taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 2005-2006 National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Report and 2006 National Safety Council Reports.

Overview

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas.

You can't see radon. And you can't smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home.

Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Radon can be found all over the U.S.

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building — homes, offices, and schools — and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.

Testing

Testing takes a minimum of 48 hours.
