OTHER SERVICES:

HOME ENERGY REPORT
To conduct a Home Energy Inspection, I will collect data and use an advanced energy calculator developed by InterNACHI to:
• estimate the home’s yearly energy usage;
• pinpoint potential energy inefficiencies;
• develop recommendations for energy improvements; and
• determine your potential energy savings.


The Home Energy eBook is included with your Home Energy Report. It describes additional steps you can take right now to save energy, increase your family’s comfort, and protect the environment.


RADON TESTING
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it is also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. Nearly one out of every 15 homes is estimated to have elevated radon levels.

The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have already had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too. I promise fast turnaround time on laboratory results.


WOOD-DESTROYING ORGANISM INSPECTION
Wood-destroying insects and other pests can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. These destructive organisms can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later, and I’ll deliver your report quickly.

MY STANDARD HOME INSPECTION

I’ll inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.


I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions. My experience as a professor has left me with the heart of a teacher—I love educating people about how to maintain their homes.


As a state-licensed Certified Professional Inspector® trained by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), I adhere to a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice. This means that I will inspect all of the following, when visible and accessible:

  •  Roof
  •  Structural Components
  •  Attic, Ventilation & Insulation
  •  Exterior Cladding
  •  Porch & Deck
  •  Attached Garage
  •  Driveway
  •  Foundation
  •  Basement/Crawlspace
  •  Electrical System
  •  Plumbing System
  •  HVAC System
  •  Interior, including:
  •      Ceilings, Floors & Walls
  •      Windows/Glazing 
  •      Doors


Following my evaluation, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
