Schedule your next Home Inspection or Radon Inspection with Jet Home Inspection of Vancouver, WA.
New Home Inspection
It’s far too easy to become attached to a home. We’re here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice. A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information. New home inspections play an important role when final steps towards closing are at hand. This inspection is just as important as an inspection of an existing, older property. We’ll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. We’ll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.
Below is a list of all components that are inspected in a standard home inspection:
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
Before you place your home on the market, allow me to assist you in performing a pre-listing inspection. This inspection will address possible maintenance issues, major and minor defects, safety concerns which may make the process of selling your home quite time-consuming. As well with this pertinent knowledge of your home, the direction needed may enhance its value and the time it takes to sell. Protect your investment and improve your awareness of your home with a pre-listing home inspection by Jet Home Inspection.
Pre-Purchase Home Inspection
A pre-purchase inspection should be performed by a licensed inspector to weigh your decision on the purchase of an existing home. Home purchase contracts will often contain a provision for a home inspection and certain stipulations concerning the condition of various home systems and components. Protect your investment by arming yourself with the knowledge you will obtain with a thorough pre-purchase home inspection offered by Jet Home Inspection.
New Construction Home Inspection
A brand-new home doesn’t necessarily mean well built. New doesn’t even guaranteed-good. Houses are built by people, and not all houses are built to the same standards. More often than not, problems with a new construction occur through circumstance or human error, rather than malicious intent. Not all builders are equal, with varying levels of experience and professionalism. In addition, problems may occur from rushed work in order to meet a tight deadline. When you buy a new construction home without an inspection, you’re placing yourself at the mercy of the people who built it. A new construction inspection allows you to catch construction issues early, before they become major problems down the road.
11 Month Warranty Inspection
Did you recently buy a house and have it inspected initially? Some homes have a warranty with the purchase that may run throughout the year, but afterwards nothing is covered. In order to prevent any potential conflicts and feel safe about your purchase beyond the warranty, have us come out for an 11th month warranty inspection to double check everything first. It’s not worth paying an arm and a leg for repairs that could have been spotted while the home warranty is still in effect! Our inspector will present you with a detailed report displaying any errors or problems before they get worse. We give all of our clients the peace of mind they deserve and protect their future investment.
Property Management Inspection
No matter what kind of properties you own, we will perform a proper inspection for them. Whether it’s a condo, apartment, or even a town-home, you must keep your properties checked routinely. We can make sure the properties are move-in and move-out ready when switching renters. When you don’t have a chance to keep a close eye on each individual unit, we can do check-ins to reassure your property is still in good hands by the current renter. Property management inspections will help protect lease agreements by checking for maintenance issues during a renters tenure. Also, having regular check-ups lets the renter know they must be clean and courteous of the property they are renting Have us come out for a property management inspection today.
You can’t see touch or smell radon gases. Radon comes from the decay of radioactive material in the earth. Radon is typically everywhere, including outside and in every home. It is possible for your next door neighbor’s home to be safe and yours not, so each home needs its’ own radon inspection. The EPA has determined that if the level of radon in your home is more than 4.0 pCi/L you should have a radon remediation. Radon has been linked to lung cancer and other health conditions. Is radon more prevalent in some areas than others? Yes. The best way to know if it is an issue for you is to schedule a Radon Test. There is always some risk with radon since it is everywhere. The risks can be reduced by lowering the level in your home and having an inspection.
Sewer Scope Inspection
A sewer scope inspection focuses on the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A lateral sewer line is a privately-owned pipeline connecting the property to the publicly-owned main sewer line, HOA tap, or septic tank. Sewer-scoping the line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and home buyers to be aware of. For example, if there is a damp depression in the lawn above the sewer line, or if there is backflow into the home, or if contaminants have been discovered in the potable water supply, a sewer inspection can identify and confirm these problems, which should be addressed immediately.
Well Inspections can be very different from house to house and it is very important that you are working with someone who is certified and has had many years of experience. Your drinking water is one of the most important things in your home. It needs to be inspected to make sure there aren’t any contaminants and that the water is meeting state regulations. Unfortunately, many “inspectors” of well and septic systems are very limited in their knowledge of these different systems and the quality of the information they are able to provide you will reflect that. You don’t want to wash your dishes and do your laundry with unclean water, so don’t make the mistake of not getting your well water inspection during your home inspection.
