*What does a home inspection include?
*What is a home maintenance check-up?

Don't let minor imperfections become major repairs. With weather conditions, wear & tear and the effects of time can impact a home both visually as well as whats hidden beneath the surface. Don't wait until something serious happens. I analyze and observe hundreds of items throughout  your home so depending on your needs you can schedule a check-up for your home to help you stay on top of your home's physical condition and plan or prepare for any maintenance, repairs or upgrades.

 *What is a radon test?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas and therefore not detectable by human senses alone. Radon is a gas produced by the decay of radium which is a cancer causing radioactive gas. The U.S. environmental protection agency (EPA) estimate that as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused each year by radon. Radon is everywhere in the U.S. and it seeps out of the soil through cracks, holes and drain pipes in the foundation or basement. A radon test by standards takes initially 48 hours and from the results action goes from there. If the test shows an average above the EPA action levels the EPA recommends mitigation to reduce your exposure to radon gas. Testing and mitigation are really inexpensive and if results show mitigation is necessary there are DIY kits and  local companies that are involved with mitigation. You receive an easy to read document with the test results and my assurance that we will have your home healthy for years to come.

*What is a renter inspection?

An inspection of your property you are about to rent is a safe and ideal way to make sure you are aware of the health, and safety issues that could arise during your contract with your landlord. It gives you a full report of the current condition and state the property is in so when its time for you to move out you"ll have a certified report on the state of the property before and after you.
