Standard Home Inspection
The standard home inspection includes a thorough evaluation of the house and its components. This will provide buyers with on objective examination of the visible and accessible components of the home. This inspection not only identifies current and potential issues, but also includes information that will help the buyer have a greater knowledge of the house and the components within the home.
When preparing to sell a home, many clients complete a “pre-listing” inspection. Doing so helps a home stand out compared to other homes and gives potential buyers more peace of mind when writing an offer. This is similar to the Standard Home Inspection and enables the seller to identify problems up-front that may need to be addressed prior to selling the home. Clients interested in a Pre-Listing inspection receive a discounted inspection rate.
New Construction and One-Year Warranty Inspections
Although many people believe purchasing a new home does not require an inspection, experience has shown that even new construction homes have defects that the average home owner would not be able to identify, even after moving into the house. Another option to consider if a new construction house is not inspected prior to moving in, is a warranty inspection. Most builders provide a one year floor-to-ceiling warranty on the house, so many clients elect to have an inspection prior to the warranty period expiring. This enables the home owner to provide a punch-list for the builder while the home is still under warranty.
Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rocks and water throughout the U.S., including here in Colorado. Radon gas found within the home can easily be mitigated to meet the EPA’s requirements. Short-term radon assessments require a 48-hour test period and results are available immediately using our continuous radon monitor (CRM) devices. We follow the standards of the NRPP for radon measurement. For a sample radon report, click here. Radon testing is available for an additional fee.
Thermal imaging is an advanced, non-invasive technology that enables the inspector to detect problems in a house that can not be identified through conventional inspection methods. It is a special type of photography which has many uses, including in the home inspection world. Thermal Imaging in a home inspection can help detect various types of leaks, ventilation issues, insulation gaps and energy loss through heat signatures rather than light. This means the inspector is able to see things that otherwise might be hidden or invisible.
