Four Point Inspection
A 4 Point Inspection covers four primary areas of a property: the roof, HVAC system, electrical system, and plumbing system. Most home insurance agencies will require this inspection for individuals who are seeking coverage on an older property. I will ensure that the property meets the minimum standards as required by your insurer—giving you an opportunity to arrange repairs as necessary in order to qualify for coverage.
Light Commercial Inspection
This inspection is for commercial buildings local stores, offices, car dealerships etc. I'll assess the same areas included in the Residential Property Inspection, while taking care to evaluate the additional systems and structural features that may be unique to commercial spaces. A full report of my findings will provide you with a valuable resource for negotiating a prospective investment.
Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, as well as homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.
The US EPA, Surgeon General, American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and National Safety Council recommend testing your home for radon because testing is the only way to know your home's radon levels. Radon levels vary from state to state, county to county, home to home. There are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface.
