Our Home Inspector will be happy to review the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything and answer any remaining questions.
General Home Inspection: $350*
A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.
Roof Inspection: $150*
A roof inspection is a visual process where all of the components of the roof are inspected for any visual defects. This includes but is not limited to, the roof covering, gutters and downspouts, chimneys, vents, skylights, and flashing. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.
Radon Testing*: $150*
Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon. Buckeye Inspection Services is a licensed radon testing service. We use measuring devices that are placed in the lowest level of the residence for a period of 48-96 hours, with the results available within 24 hours from the end of the test.
You can find more information about radon on the EPA website: www.epa.gov/radon
*Radon test may be performed by third party
Termite Inspection: $75*
Wood destroying insects and other organisms can cause serious problems in the wood structural components of a house and may go undetected for a long period of time. A termite inspection is available with all our home inspection services, saving you money and time in one appointment, or as a stand alone service.
Buckeye Home Inspection Services starts with a full termite inspection which includes visual and probing methods. We will look for termite mud tubes, tunnels, and wings on window ledges, door frames, and in boiler rooms. Termite damaged wood beams, joists, and wood support columns in your basement and garage are also inspected. Upon completion you will receive NPMA-33 report form.
Gutter Evaluation and Cleaning: $150*
Clogged or poorly draining gutters can lead to a number of moisture issues and costly repairs. Our Gutter Evaluation and Cleaning service will remove debris from gutters and downspouts in order to provide feedback on the condition of the roof drainage system. Debris will be scooped into buckets at the roof edge to minimize the mess, bagged in yard waste bags, and left at the curb. Customers will be provided with verbal, photo, text, or email feedback on the condition of the roof drainage system. (Limited to gutters safely reachable with a 24' ladder. Buried drainage not included. Additional fees may apply for gutters with covers/guards)
Annual(Seasonal) Maintenance Inspection: $250*
Part of responsible home ownership includes, of course, regular home maintenance. And there are some tasks that, if deferred, can lead to a home system that’s inefficient and overworked, which can result in problems and expenses. Annual Maintenance Inspections are a great way to identify problems early before they become more costly.
