The decision to sell or purchase a home is an important decision, and how better to proceed than with accurate and reliable information about the property in question.
All inspections conducted by Certified Home Inspection Services, LLC evaluate all interior and exterior components and systems of the home including the roof, basement, heating, cooling, ventilation, insulation, plumbing, structure, electrical, and the lot. Often, titles to differentiate, or better suit the clients’ intentions are used which include Pre-Listing, End-of-Warranty, Pre-Purchase, etc, but the content is quite similar and all noted deficiencies or safety-related issues are detailed.
Typically, a Wood Destroying Insect Inspection- also referred to as a Pest or simply Termite inspection- is required by the lender. This inspection identifies the presence of insects or substances that may effect the integrity of the homes' wood framing and support members. Termites are subterranean insects and most often visual signs indicating their presence is found in the basement. Soil around the structure is also assessed.
Radon is a gas derived from the decomposition of Uranium and, being radioactive, is associated with health risks including lung cancer. A Radon Test consists of placing detection devices in the home for a period of at least 48 hours. They are then evaluated to determine if a mitigation system- a means of reducing the concentration level- is recommended.
