Residential Home Inspection

A limited, non-invasive, visual inspection of the systems and components of a home to determine their condition as it relates to the maintenance or sale of the home.

We will thoroughly inspect the major systems of the home and their components including plumbing, electric, HVAC, and structural (roofing, attic, foundation), and report on any observed defects. We use a variety of specialty equipment including thermal imaging and moisture meters to detect evidence of possible leaks and insulation deficiencies, wood rot, possible microbial growth, and other common defects that often go unnoticed. You will receive a detailed report with high resolution photos and easy-to-read explanations of the defects we found. Our inspectors are all trained and certified through a nationally accredited program and are fully insured. Our goal is to not only provide you with the most stellar service, but to also educate you so that you can recognize defects and take action to prevent long term damage to your investment in the future.

Radon Testing

An evaluation of the quantity of Radon gas present in your home using sophisticated measuring instruments to determine the toxicity of the air you are breathing on a daily basis.

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of Uranium in the soil. You can’t avoid it, but you can mitigate its presence and should be aware of how much Radon is in the air you breathe at home. Because of the limestone content in our region, Georgia residents are particularly vulnerable to Radon exposure. Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer and cannot be detected without sophisticated testing instruments.

Wood Destroying Organism Inspection

A thorough inspection of the property including the residence as well as ancillary structures for the presence or evidence of activity of any organism that impacts the structural integrity of wood. In other words, we will search every nook and cranny to find out if you have critters or fungus that will eat your wooden structural members and cause damage to your house.

Termites aren’t the only threat to your home’s structural integrity. So that termite bond you have is only partially protecting your investment. There is a long list of wood destroying insects and fungi that may be living in your home right now. As they feed on the cellulose, the structural integrity of your home begins to weaken and will eventually fail. Let us find them for you before it’s too late.

Mold Inspection and Testing

A detailed inspection of the desired structure for the presence of microbial growth, and the testing and verification of any found substances within the inspected area.

Mold is all around us and can grow in all sorts of places that are not readily visible. We will inspect every environment within the structure for the presence of active as well as dormant mold spores. We will also compare the amount of mold spores within the home to the amount of spores in the environment outside to ensure that the air being circulated in your home is clean. Mold exposure can cause allergic reactions which become more severe over time. In some cases it will lead to major health defects such as asthma attacks and chronic sinus infection.

4-Point Inspection

A 4-Point inspection is an abbreviated residential home inspection that only includes the four major home systems: plumbing, electric, HVAC, and roof.

The 4-point inspection for your home is much like getting an annual check-up at your doctor’s office for your body. Defects occur over time and cannot be predicted. It’s important to have an expert examine your property’s most crucial systems on a regular basis. We recommend getting a 4-Point inspection every year or every other year. This will ensure that you catch small defects before they become major defects. Major defects can affect other systems and components in the house that may compound the financial burden of repair. It’s much cheaper to pay for an inspection and catch a small leak early than it is to replace your subflooring after years of slow leaking.

pool inspection

Pool Inspection

A detailed inspection of the residential pool including the structure, the decking, the drainage system, and the equipment.

Pool maintenance and repair can be a very expensive line item on your budget sheet. There are many components to consider, and if you aren’t trained in pool inspecting then you won’t know what to look for when you do a walk-through of your perspective property. When purchasing a home with a pool, you want to protect yourself against those unexpected high cost repairs. We will make sure that you have the information you need to bring to the bargaining table when it’s time to negotiate.
