I won’t just inspect your house, I will walk you through how to take care of it after moving in. I will summarize my findings on the condition of all the systems of the house so it’s easy to understand. I will perform a comprehensive inspection which will cover all the different systems on the house.
I will provide you with a modern, cloud-based report which is easy to follow and understand. It will summarize my findings with colored pictures, links to articles about areas of interest in the house as well as recommendations for improvements.
Before listing your house for sale, it’s very important to get it inspected.
Your potential buyer will perform a home inspection, and the home inspector might find a lot of issues you are not aware of. This subsequently will cost you a lot to fix these issues, or it will decrease the asking price for your house.
With a pre-sale inspection, your house will be evaluated before you even list it in the market. I will provide you with a list of items that need to be taken care of, and save your time and money.

As a Landlord, renting your property is a liability concern. If your tenant got injured due to a material defect in your property, you are liable. Getting a rental property inspection before renting your house will point out any defects so you can take care of it before someone gets hurt.
As a Tenant, you won’t be happy after moving into a house to find out that the shower drain is clogged or the toilet is broken, or the bedroom’s window leak every time it rains. Getting a rental property inspection will save you all this nonsense, and you will rest assured that your potential rental is a safe place to live in.
General homeowner’s Inspection
Wondering how your house is holding up? Are you considering a renovation project, or thinking about adding another room and need a professional evaluation before starting the design process? General homeowner’s inspection is an evaluation of the current condition of your house and an assessment of the validity of any future plans. You would be surprised and thankful -at some times- for a general homeowner’s inspection when it reveals a plumbing pipe about to give up, or a water heater about to leak and flood your house. These are just two examples of simple yet crucial issues that can go wrong and cost you thousands of dollars on repairs. It also issues that can simply be avoided by having a routine homeowner’s inspection every year.
Radon is a radioactive gas that forms naturally when radioactive metals such as uranium, thorium, or radium, break down in rocks, soil, and groundwater. Humans can be exposed to radon primarily from breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes. Because radon comes naturally from the earth, people can’t smell, taste, or see it as it’s odorless, tasteless, and colorless. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in America, and it comes right after smoking as the leading cause of lung cancer.
High levels of Radon in the house are very dangerous and it can seriously affect you and your family.
Radon is responsible for 15,000 to 20,000 deaths annually in America, so it needs to be taken seriously.
Schedule your Radon test along with your home inspection today to make sure your family is protected. The house indoor air will be sampled for two days, and the sample will be sent to an approved NJ Department of Environmental Protection Lab, which will measure and generate a report indicating the Radon concentration levels in the house.
More Information about Radon can be found on the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) see the link(s) below
