NEW CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION

When a new home is finished being built or entering the final stages of construction, we recommend scheduling a professional inspection. By having the condition of a new home evaluated, any material defects or oversights in system installation can be identified and addressed before it’s time to move in.

PRE-LISTING INSPECTION / 4-POINT PRE-LISTING INSPECTION

Before you sell your home, it’s a great idea to have the property evaluated by a professional home inspector. A Pre-Listing Inspection allows a seller to have a clear understanding of the home’s condition before it goes on the market. This can give you a better idea of the property’s value, and creates an opportunity to preemptively resolve any issues that could reduce a buyer’s offer or stall negotiations.

Slopeside Home Inspections is now offering a discounted, customizable 4 -point pre-listing inspection focusing on any four major parts of the home i.e roof, crawlspace, attic, mechanicals etc. Perfect for newer homes and/or very well-maintained homes. 

RE-INSPECTIONS

If Slopeside Home Inspections conducted an inspection for you that turned up any issues that have since been repaired, we gladly offer Re-Inspections to ensure that the work was performed correctly. Whether it was defective drywall or an issue with the electrical system, we’ll carefully examine any repairs or improvements that have been made to make sure that everything is safe and operational.

RADON TESTING

Radon is an odorless, tasteless, and potentially deadly radioactive gas that originates from the decomposition of rock and soil deep underground. When radon escapes the surface, it’s possible for the gas to concentrate inside your home. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, right behind smoking. Radon is responsible for approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. Fortunately, we have the training and the tools necessary to make sure that your home is radon-free.
