Proudly Serving Aurora and Centennial East of Parker Road as well as Bennett, Byers, Strasburg, Deer Trail, Foxfield, and Watkins

Pre-Purchase Inspections for Buyers

The professional home inspector visually examines the readily accessible systems and components of a home and operates those systems and components utilizing industry (ASHI) Standards of Practice. The client is encouraged to attend the entire inspection. Areas to be inspected include:

  • Property & Site
  • Exterior & Garage
  • Roof & Attic
  • Basement/Structure
  • Heating/Cooling Systems
  • Plumbing Systems
  • Electrical Systems
  • All Bathrooms and Fixtures
  • All Kitchen and Built-in Appliances
  • All Interior Living Spaces

Upon completion of the inspection, a computerized Inspection Report including digital pictures of defects is printed on site and presented in the Pillar To Post Inspection Report Binder, which also includes a seasonal maintenance checklist and a home file system for important papers/receipts.

We inspect residential single and multi unit homes, apartment buildings, and light commercial office/retail buildings.

Pre-Listing Inspections for Sellers

In preparation of listing a home for sale, the inspector will visually examine the readily accessible systems and components of a home and operates those systems and components utilizing industry Standards of Practice. At the completion of the pre-listing inspection, ten (10) individual "Feature Sheet" packets will be generated consisting of an outline of both the GOOD ("Asphalt roof covering appears to have been installed within the last three years. The entire roof system appears in good shape and functioning as designed with no evidence of deficiencies or differed maintenance issues.") and the bad ("Hot water heater is nearing the end of its typical life expectancy. Budget to replace the unit in the next few years.") – BOTH the good and the bad points will be summarized with the accompanying digital photographs and placed in a high quality folder! Ten of these "Feature Sheet" packages will be generated and left with the seller in addition to the full inspection report as outlined above. After the inspection is complete, a tasteful yard sign will be left with the property indicating a pre-listing inspection has been completed – and that the seller is committed to ensure NOTHING stands in the way of an offer!

Limited Mold Sampling (air/swab)

The purpose of Limited Mold Sampling is to detect the presence of mold in Client defined areas of the Subject Property. Mold samples will only be collected from requested areas; no screening services are employed with limited sampling.

Mold Screen with Air Samples

This is an initial step to determining if a home has a mold problem. The Inspector will perform a visual examination of all accessible areas of the residential home which is designed to identify current or past moisture problems which may lead to mold contamination. Up to four air and/or surface samples will be collected and sent to a laboratory for analysis. Laboratory results are available in approximately 3 business days. If the report analysis reveals elevated mold readings the next step is consultation with a Certified Industrial Hygienist for remediation.

Mold Clearance Inspection

The purpose of a mold clearance inspection is to assure that the mold cleanup has been done correctly and effectively in the work area and to confirm that the cleanup did not accidentally distribute high levels of moldy dust and debris into other building areas or into its mechanical systems such as heating or air conditioning systems. To avoid conflicts of interest, mold clearance testing should never be performed by the mold remediation contractor or by someone with any connection with such contractors.

Radon Testing

Testing is performed using EPA protocol for home sellers and buyers. A Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) is placed in the home for a 48 hour minimum testing period by a trained radon tester. A Sampling Report is issued with the radon levels by hour and an EPA Overall Radon Average for the sampling period.

Air Quality Testing

This valuable service will provide the client with important information about the air they will be breathing! Multiple air samples will be collected from inside the subject property in addition to a control air sample from the property exterior. These samples will then be sent to an American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) accredited lab for full analysis to include; mold spore count (ALL Fungi), pollen, rust, insect fragments, dead skin cells, etc. Pretty much everything floating around in the air. Based on the findings in your report, recommendations will be made on how to improve the indoor air quality.

EIFS/Stucco Testing & Evaluation

Following a strict EDI (Exterior Design Institute) protocol, the subject property exterior system will be fully inspected and evaluated for moisture penetration concerns. Based on the findings of the EIFS Inspection, maintenance and correction recommendations will be made in a detailed computer-generated report including digital photographs of the problems identified.

Re-Inspection

A visual examination of areas to be determined by the client designed to evaluate whether work requested in a contract addendum has been completed in a satisfactory manner. A copy of the contract addendum and the client, or the clients, representative must be present during the re inspection. A re-inspection report will be issued at the conclusion of the re-inspection.
