Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas. It forms naturally from the decay (breaking down) of radioactive elements, such as uranium, which are found in different amounts in soil and rock throughout the world. Radon gas in the soil and rock can move into the air and into underground water and surface water. Radon is present both outdoors and indoors.

Don’t wait, get your new home tested to alleviate any concerns you may have. Testing is inexpensive, completed in 48 hours and results back from the lab within 24-48 hours.  Further information for radon via the link below

Public Water Systems

What type of health issues can be related to water quality?

The presence of certain contaminants in our water can lead to health issues, including gastrointestinal illness, reproductive problems, and neurological disorders. Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and immunocompromised persons may be especially at risk for becoming ill after drinking contaminated water. For example, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Federal law requires that systems reduce certain contaminants to set levels, in order to protect human health.

As a private well owner, should I have my well tested?

Yes, as a private well owner, you are responsible for testing your well to ensure that your well water is safe to drink. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for making sure that the public water supply within the United States is safe. However, the EPA does not monitor or treat private well drinking water. 

I am working toward my certification for WDO’s. I can provide you the names of several technicians to inspect your home. This can be done on the same day and time as your home inspection.

  • Termites
  • Carpenter ants
  • Carpenter bees
  • Powderpost beetles

I will conduct a visual inspection of your home, however, I am currently not licensed to conduct either lead or mold analysis. If I see mold or lead like materials or substances in the home, I will make note and suggest a few qualified service providers who can investigate further for you.

Any asbestos like materials will be pointed out for further qualified analysis.

This is a service best left to a septic professional. While I can conduct a septic dye test, it’s recommended you seek the advice of a septic contractor to evaluate the system in its entirety.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components. The scope of work may be modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process.

What information is included in my report?

You will receive a comprehensive written report with numerous digital photos describing any defects and suggested course of action. In addition, the report will also detail the overall condition of the home beyond anything noted as a defect.

What does an inspection cost and how long does it take?

Costs vary for services performed for a variety of reasons such as home size, age of the home and overall condition of the dwelling. Additional costs may include testing for water quality, radon, termites etc. Time for services rendered can vary anywhere from 2 or more hours.

Does our relationship start and end on the day of inspection?

100% not the case. I stand ready to answer your questions during and well after this process concludes.

Should I attend the inspection?

While not mandatory, it is highly suggested you attend so I can be available to educate you and answers any questions you may have.
