Buying a home is stressful, full of ups and downs. When viewing a home it is difficult to see issues when your heart is content on purchasing that home. We provide an unbiased inspection with specific training to assess the condition of the home you would like to purchase. Having a full detailed inspection of the viewed home, will aid in your decision before purchasing. When you purchase a new home, you're also buying any problems that come with it. These problems can add up to a large unexpected expense. You can think of a home inspection as a safety net which protects you from falling into a poor investment. Problems found during the inspection which were not disclosed by the seller can put you in a strong position for negotiation. Saving money is not the only thing that an inspection can do for you, it can also keep your family safe. Unlicensed handymen can create electrical system, plumbing, HVAC, and more safety issues. We will ensure to check previous construction and check for fire hazards, structural problems, and hazardous materials.
Being a seller can be just as challenging as being a purchaser. Not knowing what needs to be fixed before entering into an agreement with a seller may cause you to fix, renegotiate, or both. This can cause more expenses and a possibly reduction in your home price. Educating yourself and understanding what an inspector is looking for can help maximize your return by removing the issues before they are pointed out to the purchaser. Having these pointed out before putting your home on the market will also give you time to repair items at your leisure.
New homes can have construction mistakes that even the best construction providers can miss. Since homes are built by people and the same standards of building a home may be different for each construction company, you are under the assumption that everything was built without any mistakes. Having a new set of eyes to view the newly built home will help with an unbias opinion on the new home construction. More often than not, problems with a newly constructed home occur through circumstances of human error rather than malicious intent. Not all builders are equal with varying levels of experience and professionalism. In addition, problems may occur from rushed work in order to meet tight deadlines. It is not uncommon to find minor issues with a newly constructed home. However, occasionally a brand new home can turn out to be an absolute nightmare despite looking perfectly fine on the surface. Some issues, such as leaks or improper grading, may not become apparent until well after the warranty has expired.
Radon is a chemical element (Rn) and a member of the noble gases. It is radioactive and so can cause damage to the DNA of a living cell. Radon is naturally produced from the radioactive breakdown of uranium, thorium, and radium.
While radon is present around the world, it can be especially troublesome in certain regions where there are high concentrations of uranium in the ground, such as in northern regions of the United States. The main source of radon is from rock and soil, therefore basements are prone to radon. Radon is invisible, odorless, radioactive, and tasteless - making it impossible to detect without specialized equipment. For more information on radon, CLICK HERE to go to the EPA website.
Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Approximately 18,000 lung cancer deaths related to radon occur in the United States every year, and it's estimated that 1 in 15 homes have radon level above the 4.0 pCi/L threshold set by the EPA
What Can You Do About Radon? The first step to protecting yourself and your family is to check the concentration of radon in your home. We provide radon testing using specialized equipment to give you an accurate measurement of radon concentration levels. If the radon measurement is greater than 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L), then it is recommended that you install a radon mitigation system. The most common radon mitigation systems use a fan to pull in radon from beneath the home and vents it outdoors where it is quickly diluted to safe levels.
