What you should inspect from our comprehensive home inspection

Comprehensive Home Inspection

A pre-purchase home inspection can help inform you, as the buyer, to any repairs or replacements that may be needed on your potential property. This will allow you to be in the position to negotiate those repairs/replacements as part of the home purchase. A pre-listing inspection can allow you, as the seller, to complete any needed repairs prior to listing your property. This will allow for a much smoother home sale process by taking the guesswork out of what needs to be done in order to maximize the sale price of your home. Our inspections are a visual inspection of the property at the time/date of the inspection. We examine the structure, different systems, and all components of the property that are readily & safely accessible to our inspector. During the inspection, we will document any defects that are present and provide a photo of the noted defect for your reference. These defects may range from simple homeowner maintenance items to more complex issues that can be hazardous to you or your family. Our inspections will cover the requested structure(s) top to bottom, inside and out. Our comprehensive report will be separated room by room to easily identify which defects are noted in which area of the structure.

radon testing

Nebraska sits inside the top five states with the highest radon concentration in the home. It is figured that half of the houses tested will have radon levels above the EPA Action Limit of 4.0pCi/l. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer overall and leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. It is estimated that Radon is responsible for more than 21,000 deaths per year in the United States.

Septic System inspection

The septic system inspection includes a scope of the plumbing lines out to the septic tank, measuring the sludge and scum levels inside the septic tank, and a dye test the drain field. The septic inspections also include aerial mapping of the property to display the locations of the system.

Well Flow testing & Visible Component Inspection

Our enhanced well flow test involves using a specialized well flow meter to monitor the well output. Periodically during the test, different amperage readings and time measurements are taken to determine if the pump is working effectively. The information collected during the inspection can be used to qualify the entire well system for a 3-month warranty with WelGard® Protection. Included with our enhanced well flow testing is a visible component inspection.

The visible component inspection views all the readily accessible well system components such as the riser/wellhead, the pressure tank, and any control switches. A water sample is also taken at the time of inspection and submitted to a local lab to ensure the water is safe for your family to consume.

Our standard water sample tests measures:

Coliform Bacteria, Nitrate, Bicarbonate, Calcium, Carbonate, Chloride, Fluoride, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Sulfate, Total Hardness (CaCO3), Total Alkalinity (CaCO3), Electrical Conductivity, pH, Est. Total Dissolved Solids, and Cation/Anion Balance

sewer scope Inspection

The average home inspection only includes those items that can be seen by the inspector at the time of inspection. This means that the standard home inspection does not cover the sewer lines from the house to the street. The national average to replace a sewer line is $8,000. There may be many hidden issues in the sewer line that can’t be found during a normal home inspection. Having the sewer line inspected with our sewer scope is the only way to know if there are hidden problems that could cost thousands of dollars after you purchase the home. We provide you with a video link to that allows you to view your sewer scope video whenever you want.

Here is a sample video that may help understand what hidden problems can be in your sewer line:

wood destroying organisms inspection

Termites and other pests are common in Nebraska. Because termites can remain hidden for so long, it can be tough to actually see the damage they are doing to the structure. Sometimes termites only leave a few clues to their presence in a structure. Failing to have an inspection or missing these clues can result in major damage to the structure.

mold & air quality testing

During a routine inspection, we may find items/areas that appear to have a microbial growth. We don’t like to jump straight to using the M-word (Mold). That can cause a lot of unneeded fear during the home buying process. In some cases, the growth may be a very common thing that just needs a good cleaning. In other cases, professional remediation may be needed to treat the problem. We can provide the testing to determine which type of solution is needed.
Our air quality testing can also alert us to microbes and allergens floating around in the air of the house that can cause allergies to flare up or even be harmful to your family.

commercial inspections

When looking to invest in a commercial property, an inspection can be critical to help reduce your liability by helping you to understand which items need repaired or replaced. Failure to identify these items may result in unnecessary liability for you as the property owner.

infrared inspections

Infrared inspections can be used to identify a number of issues in a structure that are not able to be viewed because they are hidden by the walls or ceilings. Some of the more common uses for these inspections are to detect air leaks, hidden moisture issues, or missing areas of insulation.
