Full Home Inspection- Our primary focus at Heritage Home Inspection! This inspection will cover all aspects of your home from exterior to interior and basement to roof system. We understand the importance and value of buying a home. Take a look at a few examples below:
Exterior- Proper drainage, concrete driveways and walkways, structural components, siding, soffit, fascia, windows, doors, trim, caulking, decks, roof covering, roof flashing, roof penetrations, chimney and cap, retaining walls, electrical service, condition of foundation, and any potential water intrusion areas.
Interior- Kitchen and all appliances, bathroom and accessories, flooring, structural components, doors, stairways (including hand rails), laundry room and appliances, plumbing and electrical fixtures, electrical panel, and heating & cooling system.
This is not a complete list of items, each inspection is unique for every home.
Detached Structures- As every property is different, we ask that you inform us if you wish to have these structures inspected, allowing more time for the inspection will be needed.
Crawl Space Inspection- Although we do visual and physical entry into crawl spaces when necessary, this inspection will be more in depth. Crawl space inspections will give our inspector the chance to check for proper vapor barrier throughout, proper ventilation, proper insulation around pipes, proper rim joist insulation along with insulation as a whole. Improper or lack of several items can result in moisture build up or cold rooms throughout the home. Crawl spaces are not a place that every homeowner is excited about entering, so leave it to our inspector to do the inspection for you.
Water Testing- Clean, safe water is very important. While not every home sale requires water testing, it is highly encouraged when buying a home with a private water source or well. Our inspector will follow the recommended procedures required for water draws, collect the sample, and have lab results returned to the customer as soon as possible.
Septic Inspection- Septic tank inspection is important for a home plumbing system to function properly. It is recommended that a home septic system is pumped out every year if you have a garbage disposal, or every three years if not. During our inspection, we will look for obvious signs of structural damage or baffle issues.
Radon Testing- Radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer every year and that is why the EPA makes January National Radon Action month. We use an electronic monitoring system that will sit in your home for approximately 24 hours. Throughout this time there will be up to 4 different remote devices continuously monitoring. We will then collect the data and return the analysis to you after the report has been read. Not every home has a dangerous Radon level but it is safe to have a test done.
