Radon gas is a radioactive gas found in some homes and is the second leading cause for lung cancer in the United States. High levels of radon can be dangerous especially for children or anyone spending considerable time around the gas. Mitigation can cost thousands of dollars.
Wood destroying insects are more likely to cause more damage to a home than floods, fires, or wind. Infestations can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. Termite inspections are relatively inexpensive and can prevent the buyer from spending money after the purchase of the home.
Having gas appliances and systems checked for leaks and pressure prior to the purchase of the home can save money and provide additional peace or mind.
Sewer & Septic
Most home inspection firms do not offer Infrared Thermography during the home inspection and the few that do charge hundreds of dollars for this service. GreyStone offers this service FREE! Thermal imaging often detects what the naked eye cannot. Water leaks, improper sealing, pest activity, and insulation variances are often found properly using an IR camera.
The pipe between the home and the main sewer line is the responsibility of the homeowner. Many home buyers find assurance in having that inspected by a licensed professional prior to purchase. GreyStone Inspection Services partners with trained professionals to provide a documented video of the home's sewer line.
If you are purchasing a home with a private sewer and water systems you can have the septic system inspected for leaks or defects.
