We can also help you sell your house faster with our Move In Certified program, which allows potential buyers to download the inspection report from a national web site.
|New Construction Inspection||

|Builder’s Warranty Inspection||
Is it getting near the end of your new home’s 12 month builder’s warranty? Is it becoming difficult to get the builder to fix the problems? Why not have an expert on your side? Ask for warranty repairs with a state defined, legal report in your hand and there won’t be any excuses.
|Environmental Testing||Check if your new house has problems with mold, Radon, allergens, water quality, air quality or lead. Done as a stand alone test or as part of a regular home inspection.|
|Mold testing||Did you know that the Federal Housing Administration requires both mold and Radon testing of houses or a signed waiver by the buyer that they agree to accept all liability is the house has mold and/or Radon problems? Why not know before you buy?|

|Appliance Serial Number Trace and Recall Check||Included in all home inspections.
