I believe your Atlanta home is a very complicated structure that can present problems in many different areas. I provide Atlanta residents with services to keep you informed of the most important areas of your home. Below is a list of all the services I perform and a brief explanation of why they are important.
Mold Screening & Sampling
Moisture can be hiding in your walls and you would not even know it. Excessive amounts of moisture can lead to mold growth in less than 24 hours. Mold is known to cause health issues for those with asthma and other respiratory ailments. I can identify all areas that have existing mold growth and also point out areas that need to be monitored regularly. Mold is not always readily visible, yet can still cause the associated health problems by infiltrating the HVAC system inside your home. If you’re considering purchasing a home, and notice any stale or musty odors, it is highly recommended that you have a mold inspection before purchasing. There is much to know about mold.

Radon is a radioactive gas which has been linked to lung cancer and is estimated to kill 21,000 people a year. It comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It can be easily controlled if it is present and the first step is to determine whether it is indeed a problem. I have state of the art radon testing equipment that takes hourly readings to determine whether your Atlanta home has safe or unsafe conditions. Most of the state of Georgia has Radon present in the soil. The levels vary depending on the geology of the region. Homes today are built with tight sealing techniques to help with efficiency, but tend to trap the gases as they rise from the ground into your home. I feel that it is very important to have your home tested. To learn more about radon inside your home click here.
New Construction Inspections
Pre-drywall inspections are an important step in assuring the quality of a newly constructed home. Our new construction inspection services are tailored to your specific needs and include, single pre-drywall inspections and final walk-through inspections. Most contractors have some type of quality control, however their quality control may only consist of a single review at the final phase of construction. Without inspecting each system of the property before the drywall goes up, it is impossible to determine if there are any hidden construction defects. City and county building inspectors are only required to verify that buildings meet minimum code requirements. The inspectors are often rushed to meet a busy schedule, which can lead to construction errors going unnoticed.
We provide consulting for your home improvement projects such as remodeling, additions, and new construction phases. Key benefits for you include quality control of contractors that you hire and unbiased knowledge on construction techniques being used. We can customize any inspection report to fit your needs.
1 Year Warranty Inspection
We identify items that need to be fixed or corrected before your builders warranty is set to expire. You will then be able to submit a well documented inspection report to the builder, so they may repair the defective items before it is too late.
