Home Inspection Information

*Please see the bottom of the page for Radon and Mold Testing Information 



  • You’ve most likely come to this page from the email you received confirming your inspection date, time, and address. Please ensure you have signed the inspection agreement prior to the inspection. Payment is also required prior to the inspection. If you’d like to pay with cash at the time of inspection, that is fine, and you can reply to the email that was sent to let me know. (Unfortunately, personal checks are no longer accepted.)

  • If the home is vacant, I recommend confirming with your Realtor that the water, power, and gas are on. Please also confirm that all shut-off valves and/or breakers are in the on position, as my liability insurance does not allow me to activate and shut down items or appliances.

  • If the home is occupied, I recommend consulting with your Realtor and/or the seller(s) to ensure that the attic is accessible and that any personal belongings are removed from access locations. Personal belongings should also be removed from areas surrounding major appliances (HVAC and Water Heaters), crawl space accesses, electrical panels, etc. If personal belongings are present in these areas at the time of inspection, these items and areas will be inspected as best I can from visible portions, as personal items are not moved for the sake of accessibility.

  • You’ll receive a reminder email prior to your inspection.

  • Please inform your Realtor if you are planning on attending the inspection, as they will need to be in attendance as well. 



  • Home inspections are scheduled for either 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. daily (occasionally 10 a.m. if there is considerable travel time).  

  • You are encouraged to attend towards the end of the inspection (We'll discuss this and determine a specific time on the phone prior to the inspection). During the inspection, I’m heavily concentrating and evaluating the structure. I have a routine and system that is conducted in every home, and I must ensure I can look over everything thoroughly. You’re welcome to come earlier, but I ask that you please not shadow me and save any questions for the end of the inspection. 

  • Inspections typically last between 2 to 4 hours based on the age, size, and condition of the home.

  • The initial confirmation email contained additional services that can be added to your inspection, including but not limited to Indoor Air Quality Testing, Radon Testing, Drinking Water Analysis, etc. If these services were not added to your inspection and you would like to have them performed, please reach out to me prior to the inspection. 



  • You’ll receive your inspection report via email on the afternoon or evening of the inspection. 

  • Please be prepared for a lot of information in the report. I’m as thorough as possible on EVERY home inspection I perform. It’s not uncommon for me to find between 40 deficiencies (in well-maintained homes) and 80 or more (in older, neglected, and/or distressed homes).

  • Please feel free to contact me via text, email, or phone call with any questions whatsoever. 

  • Lastly, you’ll receive review requests from my software after the inspection. If I could ask for your help, these reviews help me tremendously and are how I attain 80%+ of my business and provide for my family. I hope you will see the pride I take in my job, ensuring you understand the condition of the structure and its components. 


Radon Information

  • Radon Testing is performed over a 48-hour period with a calibrated Corentium Pro Continuous Radon Monitor. The testing results will be available immediately at the time of device collection. Any 48-hour averages of 4.0 pCi/L or greater are recommended to have a mitigation system installed for the safety of the occupants. 

  • The Radon monitor will be set up either two to three days preceding your home inspection, allowing for results at the time of your home inspection, or will be set up during the home inspection and collected two business days afterward (dependent upon my schedule). If you have a preference for set up time (either before or during the inspection) please let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate your request. 


Indoor Air Quality Testing - Mold Testing

  • Indoor Air Quality Testing consists of connecting an enclosed laboratory slide to an air pump that pulls 15 lpm (liters per minute) of air across the slide for 5 minutes, producing a 45 liter “sample.”

  • One such sample is taken on the exterior of the home, which is called the “control sample,” this sample is used as a baseline to compare the interior samples to. 

  • Two interior samples are taken indoors and are included in the base rate of $325 w/a home inspection, or $400 standalone. An additional $50 charge is required for each additional sample. 

  • The samples are shipped overnight to a laboratory where they are analyzed. A report is produced from the laboratory within two business days of testing that details the strains of mold found and in what concentration in parts per million (ppm). This will accompany a report from me documenting the testing locations and media, along with any applicable recommendations.
