You cannot see, smell, or taste radon but it could be at an unsafe level in your home. Any home can have radon -- new homes, old homes, well sealed or drafty homes, also homes with or without basements. You and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home because that is where you spend most of your time. Learn more about radon.

Home Inspection FAQ

Why do I need a home inspection?

Obtain a clear understanding of your property with a home inspection. Your report will not only document conditions of the many systems within your house but will also identify those that need routine maintenance. Your home inspector will thoroughly review your report with you.

If you are buying a home, a home inspection allows you to buy with confidence. Your new home is the largest purchase you'll probably ever make. It only makes sense to find out as much as you can about the property before you buy.

If you are selling a home, a home inspection will point out any potential problems that might be uncovered later by the buyer's inspector. Finding them early will allow you to address them before listing your home, making for a faster and smoother sale.

If you are building a home, a home inspection before the construction is complete ensures you are receiving a quality home.

If your home warranty is expiring, a home inspection ensures that you are not paying for repairs that your contractor should be covering. You will also need a home inspection when you decide to purchase a home warranty plan.

Do I need to be there during the inspection?

No, you are not required to be at the inspection. However, we highly recommend that you be present. It can be a valuable learning experience and you will get the most benefit from the inspection. By walking the house with your inspector, you can ask questions directly. We are happy to provide maintenance tips. You will have a good working knowledge of the property when we are finished.

How long will the inspection take?

The length of a home inspection depends on the size, age, and condition of your home. A typical home inspection takes 2-3 hours. Larger and older homes in poor condition may take longer.

How do I get started?

Contact us. We will ask you some baseline questions about your home and its location. Then we'll be able to provide you with the cost of the inspection and schedule a time that works for both of us. Most home inspections are scheduled within a week, depending on the real estate market. If you are using a real estate agent, we will notify them of the scheduled inspection. We will have a lockbox key and will meet you on-site the day of the inspection. Once the home inspection is complete, a PDF report will be emailed to you and your real estate agent.
