Residential Home Inspections:
Whether you’re buying or selling a home, an inspection is crucial to the process. We will help identify any potentially problematic concerns, or give you peace of mind that your home has a clean bill of health. There are many things that only a trained eye may see, and a thorough inspection by a certified professional could save you thousands.
Just like a home, commercial buildings should be closely scrutinized for interior and exterior problems or concerns before a sale. We will meticulously examine your property to help you make a confident and informed decision.
Mold can not only be dangerous to the health and well-being of you and your family, but it can also be structurally damaging as well. It is always a good idea to have your home or building tested for mold.
Radon is an odorless, tasteless gas that is naturally occurring. The radioactive properties are detrimental to your health and can, over time, lead to cancer. Radon exists in many different geologic regions and can be hazardous to your home’s indoor air quality.
New Construction Inspection:
Building a new home or office can be extremely overwhelming. Having a trained, professional opinion regarding the quality of work and installation practices can be invaluable. We have extensive construction knowledge and look forward to making sure your project is completed successfully and soundly.
