Our Inspection Services
The purpose of a home inspection is to help reduce the risk associated with the purchase of a home by providing a professional opinion about the overall condition of the home. This inspection will include the following systems: exterior, roof, structure, drainage, foundation, attic, interior, plumbing, electrical and heating
A listing agent or seller typically wants this service. Providing a thorough assessment of the home, this inspection is completed before your home is listed. After a pre-listing inspection, you can decide to make necessary repairs before your house goes on the market. With this inspection report in hand, you can also feel confident about the price you set.
This inspection takes place prior to your last walk-through to ensure that you have no concerns when you move in. Most people take it for granted that their new home is perfect, but newly constructed homes often have more defects than previously-owned ones. Make sure your builder is held responsible for safe and proper construction.
This is one of the home inspection services that can save money right away. Your new home contract may include a one-year warranty on appliances and major home systems, such as the plumbing. For this inspection, we examine what’s covered by your warranty after 11 months to ensure any issues or defects can be fixed before your warranty expires.
Radon Gas Testing
When radon gas, which has no smell and is invisible, is present, it poses a deadly health hazard. Advantage uses special instruments to detect the presence of radon gas in your home so corrective measures can be taken to protect yourself and your family if dangerous levels are present.
Wood Destroying Insects (Termite Inspection)
Advantage schedules a Licensed Pest Inspection Company to inspect for wood destroying insects and provide the WDIR form as required by some lending agencies. They will inspect the home for evidence of wood destroying insects, elevated moisture level and wood deterioration that draws these insects into the homes structure.
Well Water Testing
Advantage draws a water sample and processes the water to identify contaminates as set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the state health department. Whether the concern is bacteria, nitrates, nitrates or a heavy metal, know that we can provide the analysis you need for peace of mind
Septic Inspections (Dye Testing)
Septic System Loading and Dye Tests often requested by certain lenders, involve flushing a special dye down a toilet or other drain combined with a known quantity of water sufficient to put a working load on the absorption system. If waste water leaks to the ground surface (an unsanitary condition indicating possible multiple septic concerns) one may find dye in that water provided the septic system is flowing at common rates.
Advantage Inspection Reviews
Noah Franks performed the inspection for two houses that we were looking to buy. Both times, the amount of detail in his reports surprised me! He has great attention to detail, provided pictures, and told us exactly what needed to be done and why. He was professional and made sure to take his time so that every potential issue was caught before we put an offer on the house.
Advantage did an amazing job and was incredibly thorough with my home inspection. He saved me hundreds of dollars for repairs for the home I was buying!! I also recommend you retain them for your reinspect after repairs are made to ensure that protocol was followed. Will definitely recommend and use them in the future!!!
Advantage Inspection exceeded my expectations when my buyer client and I needed an inspection for closing. First, my client was encouraged to walk through with Mr. Franks. Second, the inspection report was very well laid out and explanation of items location/problem was wonderful when doing a repair addendum. Third, responses from staff were quick, helpful and informative. I will be using them again absolutely.
