A general home inspection is a visual inspection for system and major accessible component defects and safety issues. The inspection is not technically exhaustive. A home inspection is designed to reflect, as accurately as possible, the visible condition of the home at the time of the inspection. Conditions at a home for sale can change radically in only a day or two, so a home inspection is not meant to guarantee what condition a home will be in when the transaction closes. It’s not uncommon for conditions to change between the time of the inspection and the closing date. Cost ranges from $375-$425 based off sq ft of home.
Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
A WDI inspection not only checks for subterranean termites and dry wood termites but will also include wood destroying beetles and wood decaying fungi. Carpenter ants and carpenter bees are NOT reportable as a wood destroying organism
Are you selling your home? Let an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified™ home has been pre-inspected, which means that the seller can confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards. A Move-In Certified™ Seller Inspection informs you of 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. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home pre-inspected now.

Protect your dream home with an 11th Month Warranty Inspection
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. We’ll come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder’s warranty expires. Our non-invasive inspection is based on observations of the visible and apparent condition of the interior and exterior of the structure, including its major systems and components.
Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any material defects observed on the date of the inspection.
Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they’re still in force.
Cost range between $375-$425 based off sq ft of the home.
Why is a Infrared Inspection important?
In terms of energy loss, an IR camera can detect:
· heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors;
· damaged and/or malfunctioning radiant heating systems;
· air-conditioner compressor leaks;
· under-fastening and/or missing framing members, and other structural defects that can lead to energy loss; and
· broken seals in double-paned windows.
In terms of detecting moisture intrusion, an IR camera can locate:
· plumbing leaks;
· hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage;
· missing, damaged and/or wet insulation; and
· water and moisture intrusion around penetrations and at the foundation and building envelope that could lead to structural damage and mold.
IR cameras are equally effective at locating hot spots in the home, including:
· circuit breakers in need of immediate replacement;
· overloaded and undersized circuits;
· overheated electrical equipment and components; and
· electrical faults before they cause a fire.
Additionally, based on the color gradients that thermal images provide, an inspector can locate:
· possible pest infestation, as revealed by energy loss through shelter tubes left by boring wood-destroying insects;
· the presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected because of their heat signature that the IR camera captures; and
· dangerous flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning of the home’s residents.

Mold is a byproduct of the breakdown of organic matter, such as plants, wood, and even food and certain beverages. The problem posed to humans by mold is their spores, which can be released into the air and land on damp surfaces indoors, where they will continue to grow, if the conditions are right. Mold growth left unaddressed can quickly spread and result in damage to the structure of a home. More importantly, mold can compromise the respiratory health of susceptible individuals.
