Radon gas occurs naturally from the breakdown of uranium in the soil. What makes it particularly dangerous is that it is carcinogenic. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers in the United States. Additionally, radon is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, so the only way to detect its presence in your home is through testing. Homescope Radon Services provides non-invasive, cutting-edge radon testing to determine that the levels of radon in your home pose no threat to your family’s health and safety. If unsafe amounts of radon are present, we have the information you need to begin the mitigation process. Protect your family today from the invisible threat of radon exposure with a certified radon test.
We will examine the accessible systems and structural feature of your commercial property to ensure you are making a sound investment for your unique business needs.
Builder’s Warranty Inspection
While your newly constructed home is still under warranty, capitalize on its coverage. We will inspect your home during the 11th month of occupancy for defects that might have been missed during the building process. The subsequent inspection report will outline recommended repairs to address with your builder. This inspection enables you to take advantage of your home warranty and correct issues before they become out-of-pocket expenses.
Ensure your home is real-estate ready with a pre-listing inspection today. This inspection will enable you to see your home through a potential buyer’s perspective. You will gain insight into the true condition of your home, learn where improvements can be made to increase value, and verify a fair market price. Let the convenient CRL™ guide you and your realtor through the repair process with ease. Each party will be able to modify the repair addendum according to your budget and schedule.
When recommended repairs are completed after an initial inspection, we will perform a re-inspection. This follow-up will establish that repair materials and workmanship comply with state and ASHI standards and practices.
Our inspections now go beyond the capabilities of the naked eye – we include thermal imaging as needed to learn more than before about your potential property. Thermal imaging allows us to see differences in temperature, which can highlight potential issues such as moisture intrusion, electrical hot spots, pest infestations, insulation issues, and more. For a more complete inspection, ask about our thermal imaging capabilities.
