Q Why should I get a home inspection

A home is a complicated combination of wood, nails, electrical systems, mechanical systems and piping. Without an inspection, a buyer has no way of knowing the functional condition of the home. A certified inspector has the professional expertise to examine every aspect of a home, including potential safety concerns and upcoming expenses, and make recommendations.

Q What are the benefits of a home inspection and do I need one on new construction?

A home inspection is a tool that can be used in negotiations before a sale is finalized. If the inspector identifies a problem, the buyer can seek compensation. The realtor representing the buyer will advise them on how to proceed based on details in the report. A New Construction Home Inspection is just as important. ust because a home is new, doesn’t mean it was built well. Builders/Developers often work quickly and corners can be unintentionally cut. A homebuyer must make sure the builder spent the necessary time and used the proper materials to make the home last.

Q What is Radon and is it harmful?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. This means everyone has radon and it's in our constant breathing space. It’s odorless and invisible to the naked eye. Radon is nine times denser than air and can easily penetrate building materials like polished concrete, granite countertops, wood paneling, crawl space, basements and insulations.
Yes, Radon can be harmful. It’s a radioactive carcinogen and the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. The only way to see if the levels in your breathing space are safe is to measure for it. If levels are elevated we can point you in the right direction on how to easily remedy this issue.
