Your commercial inspection report includes a description of the property’s major systems, what immediate repairs should be considered, and which systems may need replacement within the next five years, along with our cost opinions.

Radon Test $99

Radon is a harmful radioactive and naturally occurring gas in over 7% of American homes. Radon levels are measured by picoCuries per liter of air (pCi/L), and interpreted Radon Test results are classified into two scenarios.

Scenario I – Radon level less than four pCi/L, which is considered to be safe.
Scenario II – Radon level above four pCi/L, which is considered to be unsafe.

The Environment Protection Agency has established levels of Radon below four pCi/L to be considered not elevated, whereas levels above four pCi/L are deemed elevated and merit a mitigation system.

Methamphetamine Test $179

With a rise in the use of methamphetamine, many people wish to test for the presence of methamphetamine residue in the home they are considering purchasing. A typical test involves collection of surface samples from the following areas:

Swab 1 – Heating, ventilation, and cooling ductwork.
Swab 2 – Main bathroom wall surface above vanity.
Swab 3 – Kitchen wall surface above oven/range.

Your test samples are then sent to a nationally certified laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art testing and analytical services.

Mold Test $279

Testing for mold in your air should be done when a visual examination of the property yields the following:

  • Evidence of water damage
  • Visible signs of dampness
  • Musty smells or odors
  • Obvious mold growth

Mold tests can be performed during your inspection to assess whether the property either does or does not have a cause for concern. The test would be paired with a sound visual inspection, which uncovers signs of mold presence or conditions conducive to mold presence.

Sewer Scope $199

Sewer scopes involve a video inspection of the main sewer line from the foundation to the municipality’s sewer tap or septic tank. The purpose is to identify visible defects such as the following:

  • Blockage or restriction
  • Standing water over 1 inch
  • Plant or tree root intrusion
  • Crushed or damaged pipe

Service can reveal potential blockages and other related problems that could cause the sewer to back up or lead to expensive sewer line repairs.

Termite Inspection $49

Are you in need of a Wood-Destroying Insect Inspection Report that complies with NPMA-33 standards? This form is often required by lenders or buyers as part of the due diligence process before a property is sold. The inspection covers various pests such as the following:

  • Termites
  • Carpenter Ants
  • Carpenter Bees
  • Wood-Borking beetles

The NPMA-33 form informs about wood-destroying insect damage on a property, helping buyers/sellers make informed decisions and carry out necessary treatments.

Opinion of Cost $99

Negotiating property prices and repairs after an inspection isn’t just about getting the best deal but also being able to budget for essential repairs down the road. Adding cost estimates to your inspection offers the following benefits.

  • Negotiate with confidence
  • Take control of the transaction
  • Save time and money
  • Get the best deal

To enhance negotiations, incorporate cost estimates in the inspection report for easy conversion into a repair estimate.
