We offer three different Home Inspection Packages that allow you to select the range of services you prefer, so you can have peace of mind about buying the home you love.
We professionally inspect residential single and multi-unit homes, apartment buildings, and light commercial office/retail buildings within the greater Indianapolis area by utilizing ASHI Professional Standards of Practice.
Clients are encouraged to attend and participate in the inspection of their home. During the inspection we highlight the home’s strengths and/or which improvements are needed to save you money and time in negotiations.
Upon completion, a computerized Inspection Report is printed and emailed to clients before we leave the home.
All information is provided to clients in a customized, easy-reference binder.
Your binder also includes:
- A Seasonal Maintenance Checklist
- A Personal Home Filing System
- A Repair Cost Estimate Guide
In addition to our core inspection, we also offer added services including:
We recommend that every home we inspect include a termite inspection; lenders often require a copy of a termite or Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) Report.
The EPA, Surgeon General, American Medical Association, and World Health Organization are all in agreement that Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer (behind smoking) around the world.
- Radon is a radioactive gas that is found in every home. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.
- Radon testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk in your new home. This simple test determines if the concentration or levels of radon in your home warrant installation of a mitigation system which keeps radon out of your house. While Radon levels may not be important to you as a buyer, it may impact the saleability of the home if and when you decide to sell.
Faulty septic systems can be extremely hazardous since improperly treated effluent can harm both the homeowner's health and the health of the environment, as well as extremely costly to repair if they deteriorate.
The water quality of your home is a key source in your overall health but it can be affected by many factors, such as possible contaminants in water. The only way to be certain is to take test samples and obtain a detailed lab report.
Mold exists almost everywhere and plays a critical role in our environment. Therefore, all homes have mold to a certain extent. But how do you know if the mold in your home is dangerous?
If there are visible signs of mold, if there was a previously disclosed moisture issue in the home, if you or family members have health issues that would be compounded by mold (e.g. allergies, respiratory issues, immune disorders, etc.), or you are just generally concerned about the health risk, potential damage to the structure related to mold we recommend that you perform a simple test which will help you understand this risk at the time of your investment.
Asbestos can be found in a number of areas in your home: from wrapping around heating pipes to insulation in the attic. If there is evidence of asbestos-like materials in your home, your local Pillar To Post inspector has been trained to take a sample and send it to a qualified lab to confirm if the sample contains any amount of asbestos.
Lead can be found in many different places within the home – from the old paint on the wall to plumbing supply lines. Your local Pillar To Post Home Inspector is trained to take test samples and provide a detailed lab report for your reference.
Our pool and spa inspections are not typical when compared to services offered by other home inspectors. Poor maintenance can produce problems that are best discovered early. Our pool inspector dons scuba attire and dives in non-winterized pools year round to thoroughly inspect the pool foundation, liner, cover, and mechanicals, to ensure peak performance. Pool repairs can be one of the costliest items for a homeowner to fix.
