Complete inspections done with integrity.

SERVICES

HOME INSPECTION

Inspecting the physical condition of a house is an important part of the home-buying process and should be included in your purchase contract as a condition of closing the sale.
 
Our professional inspector will look for defects or malfunctions in the building's structure, systems, and physical components, such as the roof, plumbing, electrical and heating/cooling systems, floor surfaces and paint, windows and doors, and foundation. The inspector will also examine the land around the house for issues concerning grading, drainage, retaining walls, and plants affecting the house. 
 
Let Homestead Building Inspections, Inc. help ensure that your largest investment is a sound one.

POOL AND SPA INSPECTION

If the home you are buying or selling has one of these features, it is highly advised that your inspection include these elements as well. 
 
While most pool/spa companies only focus on the equipment, our detailed inspection will cover interior finish materials, decks, steps and coping pumps, motors, blowers, skimmer, filter, drains, heaters, automatic safety controls, gauges, visible piping and valves, cleaning system, the water supply system to ensure there are no cross connections, external bonding of the pump motors, blowers, heaters and other equipment, operation of underwater lighting, ground fault circuit interrupters, conduit, visible electrical components and timer assemblies, diving boards, slides, handrails and ladders, and the presence or absence of child safe barriers. 
 
Let Homestead Building Inspections, Inc. help ensure that your pool or spa is a  source of comfort and enjoyment.

MOLD INSPECTION

Molds are part of the natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold is not usually a problem, unless it begins growing indoors. Molds begin to grow indoors when  mold spores land on a wet or damp spots. The best way to control mold growth is to control moisture. 
 
Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions) and irritants. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash.
 
Let Homestead Building Inspections, Inc. help you to ensure that your home is not a welcome environment for mold growth.   We can also offer an independant evaluation following a mold remediation project.

MANUFACTURED HOME INSPECTIONS

Wood-destroying insects can absolutely devastate a home, not to mention your bank account. Termites damage more than half a million homes every year, and U.S. homeowners spend about $5 billion annually fighting them, according to industry statistics.
 
Many lenders, including VA loans require an inspection for wood destroying insects.
 
At Homestead Building Inspections, Inc., we encourage pest inspections be completed on every home purchase as well as annually thereafter.  Although Homestead Building Inspections Inc. has opted to no longer offer this service, our inspectors are trained to recognize potential infestations and contributing factors that will help you in preventing future issues.

RADON INSPECTION

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can't see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality.  Measures can be taken to mitigate radon exposure. 
 
Let Homestead Building Inspections, Inc. help you determine if a radon exposure risk is present in your home.
