What is a home inspection?

The main focus of a home inspection is to give you the information needed to make a decision of a purchase or to make repairs if needed. Whether it is before the purchase of a house, after the purchase or even before selling your current home. 

How much does it cost/How long is an inspection?

The cost and time of an inspection is dependent on the size of your home and any additional services requested. Please call for details 

What if the report reveals problems?

If the inspection report reveals necessary repairs, you can go back with your realtor and discuss your options. In some cases you can get a credit to make any repairs, you can ask if the seller can do any repairs before the closing date, or you can negotiate a price. If a home inspections report shows too many defects and the seller isn't willing to do anything about it, this would be a reason to back out of the deal. Make sure to discuss all of your options with your realtor or attorney you are working with at the time. 

What is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon gas is inert, colorless and odorless. Radon is naturally in the atmosphere in trace amounts. Outdoors, radon disperses rapidly and, generally, is not a health issue. Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools and workplaces. Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after it enters buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Indoor radon can be controlled and managed with proven, cost-effective techniques.
