During a full home inspection we will inspect the major components of the home, including: Foundation and structure, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, siding and roofing. After the inspection is complete and you have received the full report, you will have an understanding of the electrical system, plumbing system, type and condition of the foundation, and HVAC systems.
A typical home inspection will take us about three to four hours to complete. Answers to most home buyers questions can be found in the detailed report, which can be between approximately thirty to fifty pages. If you have any questions come up, feel free to contact us to discuss.
Having to replace a sewer line, or main lateral drain pipe from a house can cost $15,000 or in some cases much more. Before the real estate transaction is completed, it is best to have the sewer line inspected by a Milwaukie, Oregon sewer scope inspector. During the inspection we will check for clogs/debris in the pipe, cracks or damage, root intrusions, standing water, low points or bellies.
All of our sewer inspections are done using the Ridgid Seesnake camera, providing clear, high quality imaging of the inside of the main lateral drain line from the house.
Before purchasing a new home or property it is important to have it tested for radon, an invisible and odorless gas that is linked to an elevated risk of lung cancer. Milwaukie is known to have somewhat elevated radon levels, so it is important to conduct a 48 hour test before living in the home. Radon tests are conducted using continuous electronic radon monitor, results are available immediately as the test is complete. There is no waiting for lab results or shipping. We use Airthings Corentium pro continuous radon monitors, which are calibrated annually.
