My Specialty Inspections
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among non-smokers in the United States, according to the Surgeon General. One out of every 15 homes is estimated to have elevated levels of radon. Protect your family today by hiring ARK Home Inspections + Radon Detection to test your home for radon.
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on the materials and workmanship of a new home. Contact ARK Home Inspections + Radon Detection to inspect your home in the 11th month before your warranty expires so you can save on costly repairs that fall within your Builder’s Warranty.
MOLD INSPECTION AND TESTING
Moisture intrusion is the number one cause of mold in a home. Using state-of-the-art equipment, ARK Inspections takes both air samplings and surface swab tests to determine if mold is present. The home is fully inspected to find any moisture problems and the results are analyzed by a lab followed by a detailed report.
After your home is built, hire me to inspect it and see if the work was completed properly and according to your specifications and contract. I’ll help you make a punch list for your contractor showing any missing or deficient items before you issue your final payment.
If you’re a seller wishing to put your home on the market, I’ll provide a thorough home inspection first so you can address any issues before listing your home. A Pre-Listing Home Inspection simplifies the sale of your home and ensures there will be no surprises for the buyer, allowing you to close quickly without difficult, time-consuming negotiations.
Hire ARK Home Inspections + Radon Detection to check for defects specific to these structures. This includes fire safety issues, plumbing, heating and electrical systems, as well as the home’s body, frame and foundation requirements. I’ll also check for affixed seals that certify the home was built in compliance with U.S. federal housing codes.
Your Inspection Report
Following my inspection, I will compile my findings in an easy-to-read report that includes detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email your report to you on the same day, and am available to answer any questions you may have. My job isn’t finished until you understand everything in your home inspection report.
