I follow a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice of the State of South Dakota. This means that I’ll inspect the visible and accessible structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology. Following my evaluation, I’ll compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll deliver your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
Performed with HI - $150 Performed separately - $175
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.
Sewer Scope Inspection:
Performed with HI - $175 Performed separately - $200
A sewer scope inspection is a type of home inspection that involves inspecting the main sewer line of a property using a specialized camera attached to a long, flexible rod. The camera is inserted into the sewer line through a clean-out access point or other opening, allowing the inspector to visually inspect the condition of the sewer line and identify any potential problems or blockages. Client will get a video copy of the scope.
Wood-Destroying Organism (Termite) Inspection:
Performed with HI - $125 Performed separately - $150
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. I’ll inspect your home for evidence of infestation now before it becomes an expensive problem later.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspection:
Performed with HI - $75
I 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, I 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.
