Home Inspections:

We inspect the structure, foundation, exterior, roof, plumbing, electrical, interior, heating, cooling, attic, crawlspace, and appliances. We identify any defects, improper installations, safety hazards, and items that could become problematic if not fixed quickly. We also show you where your utility shutoffs are and give maintenance tips to keep your home in good condition.

Pre-Listing Inspections:

Get a home inspection before you sell. This will help you identify areas that you can repair now, before you list your home, so that there are no surprises when the buyer gets their own home inspection. Once any repairs are done, we can come back and update the report. You can then print out a copy of the report to leave for showings.

11-Month Warranty Inspections:

Did you build a brand new home? Most builders have a one or two year warranty that will cover repairs on items in the home that break within that time period. A warranty inspection can be done to identify items that need repair which can be shown to the builder so that they can fix it before the warranty expires.

Home Maintenance Inspections:

After living in your house for several years it is a good idea to have it inspected for any maintenance or repair items. These items may go undetected especially if they are in areas of the house that you rarely, if ever, see such as on the roof, in the attic, or in your utility room where your water heater and furnace are. We will perform a full home inspection and report on items that need attention or repair.

Radon Gas Measurement:

Radon is a radioactive gas that has no smell, taste, or color. It is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. 1 in 3 homes in Utah have high levels that would necessitate having a mitigation system installed. Have us do a 48 hour test to determine if you have high levels that could be damaging to your health.

Infrared Camera Scanning:

Infrared is a technology that shows temperature differences such as a cold water leak on a wall or ceiling. Doing a scan of your home can identify unseen moisture issues, areas of missing insulation, overheating electrical components, and more that can’t be seen by just simply looking at your home with your eyes.

Methamphetamine Sampling:

Not many years ago Utah was in the top 5 in the country for meth lab busts. Although much has been done to prevent meth labs, there are still people who use and cook meth in Utah. Living in a house with meth residue is detrimental to your health. Have us perform a meth sample to determine if there is residue that needs to be professional cleaned so that you and your family are safe.

Mold Sampling:

If you have visible mold or suspect you have mold in your home we can perform a swab or air quality test to identify whether the substance is in fact a mold or fungus. Our lab will also identify the type of mold and the health issues it could cause.

Termite Inspections:

In Utah, we have subterranean termites that live in the ground and build mud tubes to gain access to wood and drywall. They often go undetected because a lot of people don’t know that we have termites in Utah or they can’t be seen because they come up through small gaps and cracks in the foundation. Most termites we find are in older homes, but we have found them in homes built within the past 10 years. Whether buying an old home or a new one, having a termite inspection is always a good idea.

Sprinkler System Inspections:

Most home inspectors do not check sprinkler systems because it is not required. Be sure to add this to your home inspection (weather permitting) if you would like us to run the sprinkler system and check for any leaks, broken heads, or sprinklers spraying your house.

Asbestos Sampling:

Asbestos fibers were commonly used up until they were banned in the 70s. They were used in roofing materials, flooring, siding, insulation, ceiling tiles, and ceiling texture. Asbestos is problematic when it is disturbed and becomes airborne. If you are planning to remodel or remove something in your house that could contain asbestos be sure to have us take a sample of it first.

Lead-Based Paint Sampling:

Lead was used in paint up until the late 70s. It is hazardous to your health and especially the health of children. We can take samples in several areas of the home to identify lead paint so that measures can be taken to protect yourself and your family.
