Complete home inspections starting at just $275.
I will inspect all major systems of your home, to include: exterior, roof, foundation, attic, crawl space/basement, electrical, plumbing, HVAC components and interior features.

Mold isn’t a bad word. Every home has mold and without it the world wouldn’t be habitable for humans or animals. Mold only becomes a problem when there is too much of it, when it causes problems for your health, or when it is unsightly and causing damage to property. This is where mold testing comes in.
The results of mold testing are summarized in an easy to read report, delivered within 2 business days, with clear determinations that you can understand and act on if a problem exists. If a mold problem does not exist, your customized mold report will ease your mind.
I will closely examine the home to determine if there is any damage or potential harm resulting from dry rot conditions or insects.

Many people in the United States receive their water from private ground water wells. EPA regulations that protect public drinking water systems do not apply to privately owned wells. As a result, owners of private wells are responsible for ensuring that their water is safe from contaminants. Examples of contaminants includes lead, nitrates/nitrites, bacteria and total coliforms. Pricing varies.
"Indoor radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It's important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques." U.S Surgeon General Health Advisory, January 2005.
Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and all foundation types, to include basements, crawl spaces and even slabs. In NW Indiana in particular, it is estimated that between 25-50% of homes have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more). Testing is the only way to find out what your home's radon level is.
Having your home inspected prior to the buyer’s inspection provides you with valuable knowledge and helps you to avoid last-minute surprises and negotiations. This also allows you time to shop around for possible estimates according to your timeline, and remove overinflated, buyer-procured estimates from the negotiating table. If you would like to see what a potential buyer’s inspection of your home will uncover and remain in control of your price point, I would be glad to help.
I also include a variety of warranties with these inspections, which are easily transferable to buyers. This greatly increases the marketability of your home and eases buyers' anxiety.
If you desire only a particular portion or area of the home be inspected, I can inspect as little or as much as you'd like. Let me know how I can help!
