ResCom Inspections, LLC delivers several types of residential inspections, including wood destroying insects, radon gas, pool, septic, new home first year anniversary, home maintenance, and many specialty inspections.
Termites and Other Wood Destroying Insects
Termites can be a home’s worst enemy. Termites consume the foundation of a home; extensive damage often occurs before it becomes obvious and remediation can cost thousands of dollars. Like most challenges in life, prevention is the best cure against these nefarious pests.
A termite inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of a home for evidence of wood-destroying insects and organisms. The inspector inspects the entire interior of a home (including accessing and entering subspaces, including basements and crawlspaces) and exterior of the property. In geographic areas in which drywood termites are prevalent, and in houses where there are no sub-areas, the inspector may also access and inspect the attic. After the inspection has been performed, the inspector reports findings and proposed remediation.
According to the EPA, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in the US among non-smokers. Radon is a naturally occurring, invisible, colorless, odorless, radioactive gas whose origin is uranium within the earth’s soil. New or old, well-sealed or drafty, with or without basement – no home is risk-free. There are elevated levels of radon in homes in every state. The National Academy of Sciences estimates that radon is responsible for between 15,000 and 25,000 lung cancer deaths annually.
Our radon testing program boasts unrivaled accuracy and uses the most advanced electronic radon measurement instruments in the industry. Our continuous measurement devices collect one radon sample per hour, and our tamper-resistant machines collect a sample when there is a potential tamper event. Our radon monitors have consistently tested within 3% to 4% of the EPA’s accuracy requirement of 25%.
New Home First-year Anniversary
Newly constructed homes typically carry a one-year builder’s warranty—after the first year expires, there’s an increased risk of expensive, “surprise” repairs no longer covered by the builder’s warranty.
Our new home first year anniversary inspection is a detailed, visual evaluation of your home which can help you find out how your home’s condition has changed and aged during its critical first year. Our experienced, professional local inspectors provide information on the proper care and operation of your home’s major systems.
Think of it as an updated owner’s manual for the most important investment you’ve made. Protect your new home and your investment with a First-year Anniversary Inspection performed before your builder’s warranty expires.
Ever wonder about your home’s condition? Ever wonder if your contractors are providing accurate assessments of different components of your home? If you purchased your home more than a year ago, it’s time to start thinking about an update to your home inspection because home conditions change fast, particularly if your home is more than five years old.
