Our Services

residential Inspections

Certified Inspectors will evaluate your property for safety, quality, and habitability. They inspect and identify issues in key systems such as structure, electricity, plumbing, HVAC, and roofing, throughout both the interior and exterior of the home.

pre-sale inspections

A pre-sale inspection evaluates a property before listing, identifying issues and repairs needed. It covers the home's structural components, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roof, and systems. A detailed report outlines deficiencies, assisting homeowners in making repairs and potential buyers in evaluating the property.

Commercial Inspection

We inspect commercial properties such as offices, warehouses, and retail spaces. Our team assesses the entire property, including structure, electrical, and plumbing systems and provides a detailed report with repair and maintenance recommendations. Trust us for peace of mind as a commercial property owner.

Retrofit Inspections

Retrofit inspections ensure buildings meet city / state requirements in water conservation and safety. We do the inspection and make necessary corrections if needed. We work closely with real estate professionals to insure a smooth escrow process.

Mold Testing & Sampling

There are over 400,000 types of mold, and while there are only a few dozen that are toxic, exposure to many molds can lead to health problems. It can also cause structural damage to your house.

Infrared Inspections

Infrared inspections use specialized cameras to detect heat patterns and identify potential issues before they worsen, preventing costly failures, breakdowns, fires, and reducing utility costs and carbon emissions. It's valuable for complex systems in commercial, industrial, and residential properties.

Floorplan / Electrical Mapping

Floorplans are great for investors or homeowners that want to better understand the layout of the home, or plan for where the furniture will go. Electrical Mapping is an add-on to the floorplan that will identify where all the lights, outlets and electrical devices are located and what breakers they are connected to. This helps understand if certain circuits are overloaded or provide guidance of where to turn off power to a certain circuit.

Radon Testing

Radon testing can identify if the levels of radon in your home are dangerous. Radon is a radioactive gas that is odorless, tasteless, and invisible. It is naturally formed from the breakdown of heavy metals in the earth and can enter a home through cracks in floors, walls, drain systems, and other sources. The EPA has estimated that over 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year are attributed to radon. It is the number one cause of lung cancer deaths among non-smokers.

4-point Inspections

A 4-point inspection assesses electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and roof systems, required by insurance companies for older or high-claim homes. A licensed inspector evaluates these systems' condition and age, providing insurers with an overview of the house, reducing risk and ensuring adequate coverage. Homeowners learn about the systems' condition for informed decision-making.

Water Testing

Water quality testing is a specialized laboratory test that checks a home’s water supply for contaminants and pollutants, such as Nitrate, lead, and coliform bacteria. Testing can also reveal chemical imbalances of the pH, and other attributes, such as hardness. Testing ensures that the home’s water is potable and safe for everyday use.
