By definition, an inspection is a visual non-invasive examination of a building property that determines the present condition of the home's major systems, based on a visual inspection of accessible features. It focuses on the performance of the home, rather than cosmetic, code or design issues.
We believe a quality-driven, safety-focused, client-centered inspection should be more than that. For us, a building inspection will examine all components of a home or commercial property, large and small, easy to get to, and not so easy to get to.

Your septic system should be inspected once a year, including as soon as the house is put on the market for sale. This will enhance your home’s value and avoid any liability issues that might result from a malfunctioning system. Unlike most home inspection companies, our professionals are experienced in septic system testing and evaluation.
We take full advantage of drone technology to conduct visual evaluations of roofs, property and other areas that are difficult to inspect with the human eye. This provides a massive advantage in our ability to conduct inspections and evaluations for commercial and residential properties.
Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive natural gas that you can’t see, smell, or taste and its presence in your home or business can pose a danger to your family’s or workers' health. A simple and non-invasive radon test can be performed by our inspection professionals to determine if you have an elevated radon level in your home and if a relatively simple mitigation procedure is needed.
