In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention. Our priority is to educate you about the home and ensure that it will be a safe place for you an your family.
A home maintenance inspection is identical to the buyer and sellers inspection except that no one is buying or selling the home. A maintenance inspection is a proactive approach to home ownership by protecting your investment by identifying conditions that may exist and then develop a plan to address them. How do you know to take care of an issue if you are not aware that an issue exists? Let us help you understand your home and protect it.
Protecting You, Your Family, and Your Investment
The Surgeon General has warned that radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States (EPA, 2011). Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rocks, and water throughout the United States. Radon gas becomes a threat to health as it can collect in homes, sometimes in very high concentrations. We test for radon gas using EPA approved testing methods. We use a computerized Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) which provides immediate results after the testing period. No need to wait several days for lab results. Visit lowradon.org for more information about radon gas in Wisconsin.
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, its always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses. We can help you answer how serious problems are and which must be immediately addressed and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiations. The resulting physical and/or aesthetic improvements often significantly improve the home sale appeal.
