Annual Home Maintenance Inspection
A lot happens over the course of a year and it is important to understand how the conditions of your home and property have changed as the seasons come and go. All homeowners should anticipate that their home will eventually require maintenance. It is crucial to be aware of maintenance concerns before costly issues emerge. By having an annual maintenance inspection, we help you get out in front of any potential issues and save time, money and hassle as a result. We will perform a home maintenance inspection to assess the overall condition of your home and essential mechanical components. A detailed report will be generated for you to review and make well-informed decisions on how to best maintain your home. A home maintenance book with accompanying seasonal checklists will be included free of charge for your convenience.

Radon Testing (For Homes and well water)
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. For the wellbeing of you and your family, we recommend having your home and well water tested for the presence of Radon.
Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. Most importantly, mold can cause health problems. A professional mold test starts with a thorough inspection of your property. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I’ll take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection
I use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. By evaluating the images, I can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, and flue leaks in the chimney.
Water Quality Testing
Let me test your potable water supply, especially if your property has a private well, cistern or septic system. Upon request, water samples may be collected and sent to labs for analysis; the water will be assessed for coliform and other harmful bacteria, which can endanger your family’s health.
WDO (Wood-Destroying Organism) Inspection
Our WDO (Wood-Destroying Organism) inspection service provides a thorough assessment of residential or commercial properties to identify and evaluate the presence of wood-destroying insects, such as termites, beetles, carpenter ants, and fungi that can cause structural damage. Our trained and certified inspectors conduct a comprehensive examination of the property, including the interior, exterior, crawl spaces, attics, and basements, using advanced techniques and tools. During the inspection, our experts examine visible and accessible areas, searching for signs of infestation, such as discarded wings, mud tubes, damaged wood, and hollow-sounding timber. We also assess the moisture levels, ventilation, and other conditions that may contribute to the risk of wood damage.
