A home is probably the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, so it’s important to understand the condition of your investment. We’ll provide a non-invasive evaluation of the home’s accessible structure, systems and components. While a home inspection can’t reveal every concern or condition that exists, it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

Wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to the wooden structural components of a house. They can hide and go undetected for a long time, but there are many telltale signs for different species that indicate their presence. We’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later.
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.

Unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, ruin drywall, and most importantly, mold can cause health problems. With all home inspections we do a full house screening and if we discover conditions for mold growth or a mold like substance, we highly recommend testing. This helps determine not only if mold exists but also the type of mold through laboratory analysis. With this information we can prescribe a remediation plan that is specific to you and your home. We also offer mold services without a home inspection.

Foundation Evaluation for Pyrrhotite - Connecticut
We are certified by the Connecticut Foundation Solutions Indemnity Company (CFSIC) to evaluate foundations for pyrrhotite, a mineral that can cause foundation deterioration and cracking.
The CFSIC offers financial assistance to homeowners with crumbling foundations caused by pyrrhotite. Foundations poured after 1982 should have an evaluation done by a CFSIC Certified Foundation Inspector or have a core sample pulled and evaluated.
We use a state-of-the-art infrared camera to find problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera translates the heat signatures of objects into colors on a gradient scale, with higher temperatures appearing as lighter colors, and lower temperatures and wet areas appearing as darker colors. By evaluating these images, We can detect sources of energy loss, locate areas of moisture intrusion, pinpoint dangerous hot spots in the electrical system, and uncover other problems, such as wood-destroying pest and rodent infestations, as well as flue leaks in the chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
