Protect your Investment

New Home Inspections

Buying a new house is likely one of, if not the largest purchase decision you’ll ever make. The whole process is fraught with emotion and stress. A professional home inspection will substantially reduce the risk of your large investment in a new home. It just makes sense to learn as much as you can about the quality of your new home, before signing off on everything.

For the relatively small cost, a professional inspection of your new dream home can pay big dividends in peace of mind and getting any problems identified and corrected before they can become an unpleasant surprise. We will find problems while it is still early enough for you to bring them up with the builder and have them corrected before you sign off and start moving in.

Gain your buyers' trust

Seller Inspections

Why would a seller want to have a home inspection? One of the most compelling reasons is the comfort factor it gives potential buyers. Every legitimate effort you make to build trust with a potential buyer will bring them that much closer to deciding to buy your property. A Pre-Listing Inspection lets them know your property is in good shape. They’ll feel good about you and the property. That can make all the difference.

You’ll immediately see the advantages this inspection provides you as a seller. If you have any questions about pre-listing inspections, just give us a call. You won’t run into high-pressure sales tactics. Just honest, informative answers to your questions. We’ll be pleased to assist.

Keep your home safe

Radon Testing

Colorless, odorless, and undetectable by your average human, radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Once in the home, the gas can collect in certain areas especially basements and other low-lying, closed areas, and build up over time to dangerous levels. How widespread is the problem? Radon has been found in homes in all 50 states. Certain areas are more susceptible than others, but no location is immune.

If high concentrations of radon are found in your home, you have several options. Since radon is only a problem when it is concentrated in a high volume, improving the ventilation in an area is often enough to solve the problem. In other cases, it may be necessary to limit the amount of radon getting into the home by sealing or otherwise obstructing the access points.

If you’re buying or selling a home, radon can be a significant issue. Buyers should be aware of the radon risk in their area and determine whether a radon test is desirable. So whether you have an old home or a new one, live in an old mining town, or the middle of the Great Plains, radon is a reality. But it is a reality that we can live with. Proper testing and mitigation can eliminate radon as a health threat. We are New Jersey Licensed Radon Technicians and are prepared to help you resolve any radon issues.

Test for potential dangers

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is a tiny fiber that was used in the past primarily as insulation. The problem with asbestos is that it has been shown to cause lung cancer and mesothelioma in individuals that were exposed to large amounts of free-floating asbestos fibers in the air. Because of the health hazards of asbestos fibers, its use in insulation and paint was banned in the 1970s.

Renovations or demolitions of materials containing asbestos can release the fibers into the air. Therefore, the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) requires the owner of any property containing asbestos building materials to get an asbestos inspection before any demolitions or renovations of that property. Our inspectors are trained in asbestos detection and will take samples from your home for further analysis, ensuring that the property is safe to be in.
