Our expertise, and over a decade of experience, has saved our clients thousands of dollars, time, and sleepless nights. We delight in the fact that we provide a "peace of mind" once our services are complete.
When taking part in a real estate transaction, the home inspection process is one of the most pivotal areas. A home inspection informs the parties involved of the condition and the responsibility that come with the property. The phrase caveat emptor, "let the buyer beware" arises from the fact that buyers often have less information pertaining to the home then sellers. Our inspectors are able to find many of these latent defects which can lay upon the premises.
Fees are based on square footage.
We do not have a set amount of time for each inspection - we work until the inspection is done. On average, inspections take two to three hours to complete. It is highly recommended for our clients to attend-however in certain circumstances we understand the client is not always available to attend. We do provide detailed/ hand written reports that are reader friendly. Contact us for an estimate using our appointment form, or call us at 216-469-4620

What is covered during an Inspection?As Certified Members of the The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI), we perform every home inspection as outlined in the NACHI Standards and Practices and Code of Ethics. Virtually every system and feature of your home that is visible is covered in a general inspection, including:
What is Radon?
A radon inspection is important when purchasing a home.ﾠ Radon is a radioactive gaseous element formed by breakdown of radium, that occurs naturally especially in areas over granite, and is considered hazardous to health.ﾠ Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in homes, especially in confined areas such as attics and basements.ﾠ Radon levels fluctuate naturally, therefore testing for high levels is important. A radon test consists of using a radon kit that would be hung or placed in the lowest habitable floor of the house for two to seven days.ﾠ After the kit has sat for the required amount of time, the inspector would then send the kit to a lab for analysis.ﾠ If a radon test comes back high, some ways to alleviate the radon could be:ﾠ sealing concrete slab floors, basement foundations, and water drainage systems.ﾠ This could be a costly fix, suggesting the importance of radon inspections.
Checking for Mold
To give you a better understanding of what mold inspections should and need to include, here are important factors to consider for mold inspections.
• If you have an allergic reaction such as a runny nose, sneezing, or itchy eyes associated with being in a certain room or building.
• To verify that sources of moisture have been successfully stopped and that no residual mold growth has been left after a known water and mold problem has been fixed.
• To confirm that there is not an existing moisture or mold problem associated with a new building or home that you plan to rent or purchase.
The water that we drink is at least as important as the food we eat. Many companies’ advertising strategies emphasize that their products contain “clean water.” However, many consumers are skeptical of such claims and come to their own conclusions after doing their own research. In addition, frequent reports in the media describing the dangers of polluted or toxic water working its way into our neighborhoods and communities have caused people to want to know exactly what makes up the water they consume on a daily basis and whether the water in their homes is safe to drink and use.
Research has shown that the quality of indoor air can be worse than that of outdoor air. Many homes are built or remodeled more tightly, without regard to the factors that assure fresh and healthy indoor air. Our homes today contain many furnishings, appliances and products that can affect indoor air quality.
