These services can be performed by themselves as a stand-alone service or added to a complete home inspection.
Drone/Thermal Imaging Photography
I use state of the art drone and thermal imaging technology. I am level 1 certified in thermal imaging and have my FAA part 107 pilot's license. I use this technology whenever possible as part of my complete home inspections. These services can be used as stand-alone surveys or diagnostics as well. Inaccessible roofs can easily be inspected using drone technology. Heat losses and moisture intrusions can be found using thermal imaging. Regular visible light photography and videos can be used to market your home as well.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas which mainly emanates from uranium deposits under the ground. Radon decays rapidly, as it decays Alpha particles are released. These Alpha particles are so small and powerful that they can collide with and actually damage DNA. Since radon gas is inhaled it can be caught in the lungs and thereby damage lung tissue and can lead to lung cancer. Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, second only to smoking. Corrective actions can be taken to relieve these gasses harmlessly to the exterior of the home. Here is what the EPA has published in regards to Radon in the home.
WDI Pest Inspection
Wood Destroying Insects are comprised of carpenter ants and bees, reinfesting powder post beetles and termites. From the basement to the attic these small insects can do a great deal of damage to the integrity of the home's structure. A WDI inspection can be done with or without a complete home inspection. Some loans such as VA or FHA will actually require this inspection.
Water sampling can be done to comply with FHA/VA requirements. This test will report the existence of Fecal E. Coli, Total Coliform, Nitrogen as Nitrates or Nitrites, Lead, Iron and will measure the ph. This is not a complete well test.
