The Home Inspection
General Inspections LLC offers the most comprehensive home inspection available.
We start at the roof and evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney, the ventilation system, the electrical service entrance, the plumbing stack, and any other systems or components located on the roof.
Our next step is to inspect the exterior of the home. We use a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and all the details.
We then move inside the house, and starting at the bottom, work our way up through the home into the attic. While inside, we address such things as the structure, the heating and cooling systems, the electrical and plumbing systems, the interior finishes, the insulation and ventilation, and accessories such as fireplaces.
Our evaluation is then communicated through a detailed inspection report, which includes descriptions of all the systems in the home, as well as any recommended improvements. This will help you prioritize the improvements and develop a blueprint for your future in the home.
Best of all, our services don't end with the inspection. For as long as you own the home, you can call with any additional questions - at no extra charge!
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that seeps up from the soil. Radon exposure is believed to contribute to lung cancer and is listed by the EPA as a Group A carcinogen, the same category as tobacco smoke and asbestos.
Fortunately, high radon levels are easily fixed. We offer testing to determine if radon may be an issue in the home.
Termites are a wood destroying insect (WDI) which live in the soil and feed on wood. If undetected and untreated, damage to the home can be extensive. To protect your investment, it is good practice to inspect for termites when purchasing and have periodic follow up inspections as well.
In a home connected to public sewer, the main line connecting the home to the public system is known as the lateral. Over time, this pipe can become packed with tree roots or even break open from ground movement. Repair is costly and usually at the home owner's expense. A sewer inspection involves placing a camera into the lateral and examining this pipe from the house to the street connection. This inspection can tell you the condition of the lateral, whether it may need cleaning or is in danger of collapse.
