OUR HOME INSPECTION SERVICES
Home Inspection Gurus provides their professional home inspection services by licensed home inspectors who are very experienced and professional.
In House Inspection our certified home inspectors use sophisticated instruments to evaluate many of the structural inspection, electrical inspection, radon inspection, roof inspection, septic inspection and etc. These services are very vital for home inspections provided by our professional home inspectors. All these services are provided on apartment inspection or condo inspection and also in home inspection services at New York State.
SOME AREAS AND COMPONENTS OF THE HOME THAT WE EVALUATE AS PART OF OUR HOME INSPECTION SERVICES ARE AS FOLLOWS
The soil and grading of the property should be such that water run-off is always directed away from the foundation. Proper grading will lessen the moisture penetration into the foundation and basement and reduce dampness.
UTILITY POWER LINES
Electromagnetic fields are virtually everywhere and are created by electricity. Fields emanating from the utility main power lines have been the source of health concerns in recent years. We will measure field strength when applicable.
LEADERS & GUTTERS
A properly installed and functioning gutter and leader system diverts water away from the foundation and basement and consequently helps to reduce moisture penetration and dampness.
A buried steel oil tank will rust and eventually leak. It is recommended that older tanks be properly abandoned (filled with sand or foam) and a new tank installed above ground or inside.
Faucet water temperature should be no higher than 125¬∞ F. Temperatures above this can cause injury, especially to children. We measure the water temperature.
BASEMENT AND CRAWLSPACE
Crawl spaces need venting so that air movement can remove moisture that is generated by the soil. Moisture accumulation in an unvented crawl space can cause damage to and promote mold growth on flooring, joists and other support structures.
Double insulated and low emissivity coated window designs help reduce heat loss. The double insulated window has 2 panels of glass separated by a space that is filled with an inert gas like argon. The low emissivity coated window has a thin metallic film on the inner side of the glass. Many of the newer windows have both of these features.
Condensation frequently occurs on skylights in the winter months. Over time this can cause staining and water damage to the surrounding areas. One way to prevent this is to provide for and install a plexiglass or thin plastic film barrier over the skylight opening in the ceiling. This plastic film has been used for years as a window insulator and is readily available at home centers.
Low voltage conditions can stress and ultimately damage appliances and electronics. We measure the voltage.
