Don’t wait until the last minute to get surprised by a major defect in your home. Instead, turn to our professional team to get a Pre-Listing Inspection. This service works just like our Buyer’s Home Inspection, but it is intended to help sellers make informed choices about what to repair vs. what to disclose to potential buyers. When you utilize this inspection service, you can impress buyers by getting your home in great shape before it goes on the market.
New Construction Inspection
Contractors occasionally make mistakes, so it’s wise to get a New Construction Inspection before you sign off on everything. We will closely inspect the property to look for any construction mistakes, including common shortcuts that could come back to haunt you later on. This inspection service is designed to give you peace of mind as you move into your new house. A New Construction Inspection can also save you from paying for a lot of unnecessary future repair bills.
New Construction Phase Inspections
If you’re just getting ready to break ground on the construction of a new home, Red Mill can help ensure everything goes smoothly. Our New Construction Phase Inspections are a great way to keep a trained eye on the builders as they work. By performing multiple inspections throughout the construction project, we can quickly find issues that need to be remedied. This approach often saves a lot of time and money on the backend.
Why should you take on an exorbitant repair bill that you may not even be responsible for? Let us perform an 11-Month/Builder’s Warranty inspection to look for items that the builder is responsible for fixing. But be sure that you schedule this inspection service before your warranty expires. For most new construction homeowners, that means you have only the first 12 months to make a claim.
Home Maintenance Inspection
A home inspection shouldn’t be a one and done procedure. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of the importance of getting regular follow-up Home Maintenance Inspections. Failing to get these inspections is like forgetting to get an oil change or a tune-up for your car; it can lead to major repair bills and a lot of heartache. Avoid these problems by scheduling this preventative service today!
If you’re buying an older home, the odds are high that your insurance company is going to require a 4-Point Inspection service. Instead of looking at the entire house, this inspection is geared toward the home’s four most critical areas: Roofing, Electrical, Plumbing, and HVAC. The results of this inspection can make a major difference in the home’s ability to be insured, along with the rates for your policy. Our experienced home inspector will provide an inspection report for you and your insurance provider.
Your initial inspection is done and the seller has just announced that everything from your home repair addendum has been completed. You’re probably eager to finish the paperwork to close on the house, but don’t forget to get a Re-Inspection first. This follow-up inspection service is the only way to know for sure that everything is in the agreed upon condition. If we find any outstanding issues, you’ll get another chance to have them resolved before all repairs become your responsibility.
Did you know that radon exposure is second only to smoking in terms of causing lung cancer deaths? Unfortunately, radon can work its way into any home, and you won’t be able to see, smell, taste, or hear it. Right now, at least 7% of all U.S. homes are contaminated with radon, and most of their owners are unaware they’re facing a ticking health timebomb. Protect yourself by scheduling a professional Radon Test via Red Mill Home Inspections.
Water contaminants can lead to several illnesses. This is especially problematic for any property that uses well water, although contaminants can get into the city’s water supply, too. We are certified to draw water samples in Westchester County, New York. We’re also registered to draw water samples from properties in East Fishkill, New York. These samples are then tested to determine if there are any potentially harmful contaminants present.
Commercial Buildings/Property Inspections
With more than 40 years in the construction industry, our home inspector has a lot of experience working with commercial buildings. Our Property Inspection service is available in NY and CT for light and heavy commercial buildings. Examples of some of the building types we’ve inspected include strip malls, storefronts, warehouses, and industrial properties.
