How do I pick a Home Inspector?

We get this question a lot. We always like to recommend the inspectors our clients have had positive transactions with such as Dave Scott with Housemasters, Allan Davis with Elite Inspections, and Doug Smith with Home Inspection Services.

What about Termite Inspections?

We understand your concern and wanting to ensure that your new home is pest-free. This is why we recommend contacting well-reviewed companies such as Black Diamond, Bright Pest Control, and Envirosafe to ensure your home is free of termites and other pests.

Is Radon Testing Essential?

All three of the home inspectors listed above do radon testing, but if you need mitigation we recommend contacting Houser Canter or Joe English Mold and Radon.
