Full Home Inspection – As a buyer or homeowner, a full home inspection is an invaluable learning experience about the condition of your home and how it functions. My full home inspection is a visual, unbiased review of your home’s accessible major systems and structural features. Home inspections are certified under InterNACHI’s Standards of Practice and performed according to their exacting Code of Ethics. I will evaluate the following areas of your home and provide a clear, concise report on their condition:
- Structural Components
- Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
- Exterior Cladding
- Porch, Deck & Patios
- Garage & Driveway
- Foundation, Basement & Crawl Space
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
- HVAC System
- Interior, including: Built-In Appliances, Ceilings, Floors, Walls, Windows & Doors
Whether you’re an investor or a local business owner ready to expand your space, I offer comprehensive inspections customized to fit your commercial property and business needs. I am familiar with the unique features of many different types of construction, from apartment complexes to multi-storied retail spaces. During this inspection, I will thoroughly evaluate the building’s condition and make recommendations concerning its viability for commercial use.
Are you selling your home? Having a pre-listing inspection offers the advantage of knowing your home’s worth in its current condition or prioritizing repairs to make before you list it. A certified pre-listing inspection offers potential buyers peace of mind and can reduce the amount of time the home spends on the market. This valuable service also protects your interests as a seller and eliminates undesired surprises during closing. A pre-listing inspection is particularly useful to have in hand when you enter into real estate negotiations.
Wood Destroying Pest Inspection
Wood destroying pests, such as termites and wood boring beetles, can cause significant structural damage to your home. Be sure the home you are purchasing or selling is free from wood destroying insects with this inspection. Having a trained professional uncover or clear your home of any evidence of these pests can save you money and a headache in the long run.

Your home’s septic system is an integral part of how your home functions and affects each part of the plumbing structure, from faucets to flushes. Maintaining your septic system is much more effective than having to address costly repairs. As a potential homebuyer or homeowner, confirm that your septic system is in proper condition and fully functional with this valuable service.

Water Quality Testing
The best way to be sure the water from your faucets is safe to drink is with a certified water quality test. A sample of your home’s water will be sent to a certified lab to be tested for contaminants, such as heavy metals and coliform bacteria. Whether your water arrives from a public water system or a private well, have it tested to determine that your home’s water is potable and safe for its many vital uses.
Mold Inspection and Testing
While mold is part of the natural environment, the last place you want to find it is in your home. If you have issues with moisture intrusion or notice a musty smell within your home, you want to consider having a visual mold inspection done to verify that your home is free of the potential health risks associated with mold growth. If any issues are uncovered, I will have samples of suspect areas sent to a lab to determine if mitigation is required to ensure your home’s indoor air quality is safe.
Radon Testing and Mitigation
Radon is a carcinogen that exists in the form of a colorless and odorless gas, which occurs from the breakdown of uranium in the soil. The U.S. Surgeon General identifies radon as the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers, and the EPA recommends having a radon test when you are buying or selling your home. I use an EPA-verified, non-invasive Sun Nuclear Continuous Radon Monitor to test the levels of radon in your home.
If detected, I also offer radon mitigation and can tailor services to fit your home’s needs. For sub-slab mitigation, I can install a custom mitigation system, which prevents dangerous radon gas from making its way into your home and compromising the health of your family.
