HOME INSPECTION

Read more

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. The Home inspection report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems, the roof, attic and visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, the foundation, basement and structural components.

COMMERCIAL INSPECTION

Read more

Many things are taken into consideration when deciding upon a commercial property: its location, size, and parking situation are just a few. But one of the most important things to keep in mind is the potential for repair costs. A roof in need of replacement or a defective HVAC unit could drastically increase your overall investment, which is why a pre-purchase inspection is essential. A comprehensive commercial real estate inspection will complete your due diligence so you can make an informed decision regarding your acquisition of a commercial property.

PRE-LISTING INSPECTION

Read more

If you are planning to sell your home, you can request a professional assessment of your home before putting it on the market. A pre-listing inspection provides you with upfront information about the condition of your property, which gives you more control over repairs and potentially strengthens your negotiating position. Our detailed pre-listing inspections can boost home sales and help you defend your asking-price.

LEAD-BASED PAINT INSEPCTION

Read more

Lead is a toxic, naturally occurring element and heavy metal in our environment that was widely used in commercial products such as gasoline, paint, cosmetics, spices, and pottery. Lead exposure in children can cause nervous system and kidney damage, as well as learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorder, and decreased intelligence. It can also cause behavior, speech and language problems, hearing damage, decreased muscle and bone growth, and poor muscle coordination. All dwelling units required to be inspected pursuant to P.L. 2021, c.182 (Single, two, multi-family dwellings) must be inspected for lead-based paint within two years of the effective date of the law, July 22, 2022(Must be hold a Lead-SAFE Certificate or a Lead-FREE Certificate to comply). To get a Lead-SAFE Certificate, a visual inspection and/or dust wipe sampling should be done. To get a Lead-FREE Certificate, surface to surface inspection utilizing a certified XRF Analyzer should be performed by a certified lead evaluation contractor. All inspections are to comply with a method approved by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development(HUD). These samples must be undertaken properly to ensure that results are accurate. Get a Lead-SAFE or Lead-FREE Certificate to avoid $1000/week penalty, https://www.nj.gov/dca/codes/resources/leadpaint.shtml

OIL TANK SWEEPING

Read more

Hidden underground oil tanks can be a major financial liability when buying a home and even if no signs point to a home ever having had an underground oil tank, a tank sweep of the property is recommended, especially in older homes. These tank search inspections protect you from liabilities and hazards that can arise from exposure to toxic substances that may seep from these tanks. Improperly abandoned underground oil tanks are a financial liability and health hazard. For minimal cost, an oil tank sweeping can potentially save thousands of dollars in soil clean up if a previously undisclosed heating oil tank is discovered during the sweep.

TERMITE INSPECTION

Read more

Termites cause an estimated $5 billion in property damage a year in the United States, according to the National Pest Management Foundation, making these pesky insects even more of a threat to wood-based structures than fire, flood, or wind. A home owner's best defense is to schedule regular inspections with a termite specialist. Even if your state or lender does not require it, you might recommend a separate termite inspection.

SEWER SCOPES

Read more

A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A lateral sewer line is the privately-owned pipeline connecting the property to the publicly-owned main sewer line, HOA tap, or septic tank. A sewer scoping can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and home buyers to be aware of. Sewer line repair can be one of the most expensive repairs in a home. Depending on severity, costs for full sewer line replacements can range from $10,000 to $40,000.

RADON TESTING

Read more

Known as a silent killer, Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium in soil and rock. It is invisible, odorless and tasteless, and can only be detected by specialized tests. Radon enters homes through openings that are in contact with the ground, such as cracks in the foundation, small openings around pipes, and sump pits.Radon, like other radioactive materials, undergoes radioactive decay that forms decay products. Radon and its decay products release radioactive energy that can damage lung tissue in a way that causes the beginning of lung cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that all homes be tested for radon. Testing your home for radon is easy and homes with high levels of radon can be fixed (mitigated).

MOLD TESTING

Read more

Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to mold are common. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold allergic and non-allergic people. Symptoms other than the allergic and irritant types are not commonly reported as a result of inhaling mold. Test mold in your house, Be informed health environmental.
