Residential Standard/ Abbreviated Inspections
& Re-Inspections

A standard home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property designed to identify defects in the structural components such as the roof, stairways, ceilings, support beams, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and more. 

HBIS will perform a detailed inspection of your home and provide you with a full written report including color photos, recommendations, safety hazards and areas of concern within the home.  This report can then be used to better familiarize with your home and help you to make an educated and informed decision in regards to your home and the property.

Radon / Indoor Air Testing

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon so testing is the only way to know your level of exposure.  HBIS can test your home to detect the levels of radon gas you can be exposed to.  The EPA recommends that concentrations of radon gas be below 4 pCi/L.  Testing is the first step to ensure that you and your family are safe from excessive levels of radon gas in the home.  High levels of radon can be mitigated by a qualified mitigation contractor but you first need to know if there is potentially an issue with radon gas in your home.
