ADDITIONAL INSPECTION SERVICES
The inspection will help you minimize delays and other stumbling blocks that are often experienced when attempting to sell a home. Before you make the real estate listing for your property, we’ll thoroughly evaluate the condition of each readily accessible area. If discoveries are made that involve defective components, you can communicate that knowledge with prospective buyers so that negotiations can proceed without stalling due to avoidable issues.
New Construction Inspection
Our comprehensive inspection of new home construction should be scheduled sometime before the builder’s final walkthrough of the property. We’ll perform a full evaluation of each readily accessible area to look for defects that you as the home-buyer need to be aware of before final closing.
11th Month Warranty Inspection
It’s a good idea for every new homeowner to mark on their calendars when the home’s warranty will expire. If you schedule this inspection before that day comes, we can catch potential deficiencies in the home’s construction that you may not have to pay to repair depending on what is covered by the builder’s original warranty agreement.
Home Maintenance Inspection
This inspection service is designed to help homeowners keep track of a home’s maintenance issues so that the property’s value can be preserved and inflated repair expenses can be avoided. We’ll inspect each readily accessible area of the home, giving you a complete rundown of any issues we discover so that we can work together to determine the best maintenance strategy moving forward.
Don’t let the discovery of a defective area in your prospective home get you down. We’re able to schedule a Re-inspection in the days or weeks after our original Buyer’s Inspection so that we can look back over specific areas of a property once the seller has had the original issues corrected—allowing you to confidently resume negotiations to close on the home.
Our professional Radon Testing service will help you learn for sure whether or not your prospective home is safe from the health hazards, such as lung cancer, that occur as a result of radon contamination. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that originates deep underground, slowly escaping over long periods of time. Radon is odorless and invisible, and if able to enter a home, the gas is a known health risk—so professional testing should be a priority for all prospective home-buyers.
To determine whether or not a home’s water supply is safe, it’s important to have samples of the water tested at a local laboratory before proceeding with a prospective investment. The samples we collect from the home’s tap and well will be tested for a multitude of potential contaminants, including heavy metals and pathogenic bacteria.
For this inspection service, we’ll thoroughly test a home for evidence of mold. Many types of mold are serious allergens, and mold growth is often associated with moisture intrusion that could be causing serious damage to a home—underscoring the importance of having your prospective home tested as soon as possible.
A Sewer Scope is designed to take an inside look at a home’s sewer system to determine if there is any damage or backup present. Repairs to a sewer system can be a massive, time-consuming headache for homeowners—so it’s a good idea to schedule this inspection service before you’ve agreed to terms on a home purchase.
Thermal Imaging (FLIR) Scan
A Thermal Imaging scan is included for free with a Buyer’s Inspection whenever necessary, but we can also perform the scan as a standalone service. Thermal Imaging allows us to photograph a home’s components in the infrared spectrum, revealing potential issues such as energy loss and moisture intrusion that sometimes cannot be detected through other unobtrusive means.
It’s estimated that 1 in 7 Georgia homes will test positive for meth—and that’s something that every home-buyer wants to avoid. This inspection service will evaluate a home for evidence of methamphetamine production—which, if tested positively, can detract from a home’s value and pose safety issues for prospective residents.
