Additional Inspection Services
Selling a home can become more difficult than anticipated if a prospective buyer’s inspection turns up existing issues that were previously undiscovered or otherwise undisclosed. We can help to mitigate this problem by performing a full inspection of the property prior to it being listed on the local market. We’ll evaluate the entire home’s condition, reporting back to you about any defects that we identify so that you can seek out repairs if necessary or simply inform prospective buyers ahead of time to build and maintain an air of trust.
New Construction Inspection
We offer this inspection service for new home construction, arriving prior to the builder’s final walkthrough to perform a comprehensive assessment of the property. We’ll inspect the home’s structure and installed mechanical systems, taking notes about any issues that we identify and providing our unbiased opinion about the most viable solutions. You can, in turn, take this information with you to final negotiations to obtain assurances that your interests will be protected before a transaction is final.
New Construction Phase Inspections
Similarly, this inspection service is also for new home construction, but it will take place at several different instances throughout the build. Starting during the initial concrete pour, we’ll carefully look over progress on the home to catch potential issues as they arise, continuing to visit the property at critical stages all the way up to the builder’s final walkthrough.
Commercial Property Inspection
If you need a light commercial property inspected, such as a storefront, strip mall, or restaurant space—we’re always up to the task! We’ll inspect the property’s buildings inside and out to learn about existing issues that should be factored into your eventual investment decision. The inspection includes all accessible structural components as well as the installed mechanical systems.
After we’ve inspected your prospective home, you may wish for us to return for a follow-up inspection once the seller of the property has carried out your repair and project requests. We’ll be more than happy to do so, focusing on the components that were repaired or replaced to ensure that the underlying issues were fully resolved.
Our sister company, Radon Protection Services of Gettysburg, Inc., can provide a free radon mitigation estimate. Radon contamination in a home can have nasty side effects for exposed individuals, even contributing to serious health issues such as lung cancer. Radon is an odorless and invisible gas that occurs naturally underground, potentially infiltrating homes through small fissures in the core structure. We are trained and equipped to test for radon, recommending mitigation of this dangerous gas whenever necessary.
WDO / Termite Inspection
Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO) spell bad news for homeowners, and before you finalize the purchase of your future home, we highly recommend scheduling this inspection service to determine if termite damage is present. We’ll meticulously look over the home’s structure for evidence of termite damage and still-active infestations, recommending repairs and pest control whenever necessary.
If radon measurements in your current or prospective home have revealed unsafe levels of this hazardous gas, then radon mitigation will be necessary in order to protect yourself and your family. Our Sister company, Radon Protection Services of Gettysburg, Inc. will conduct a minimally invasive procedure on the home to vent the radon, performing follow-up measurements to ensure that the gas levels have been sufficiently reduced.
This inspection service aims to prevent a health risk to home-buyers by analyzing the home’s water supply for potential contamination. Water samples will be taken from the tap to be tested at a local laboratory for heavy metals, coliform bacteria, and several other dangerous contaminants.
