WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?
A Home Inspection is a written report based on a visual inspection performed to provide a better understanding of the conditions of the property. It is an objective, third-party review meant to identify major deficiencies, items would be costly to repair, and items that pose safety or fire hazard. Inspections protect both the buyer and seller against hidden costs and help all parties avoid surprises and delays.
Remember, home inspectors, do not profit from the sale or repair of the property.

WHY TEST FOR RADON?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Surgeon General’s Office, American Lung Association, National Cancer Institute and the
Consumer Federation of America recommend that ALL home buyers test for Radon. Radon gas cannot be seen and is odor-less. The only way to know if radon is present is to have a test performed by a licensed professional. Duke Inspection Services is an affiliate of Radalink. We use their tamper proof-electronic monitors to provide accurate test results. A written Radon Report
is provided. Testing is fair and impartial – we do not sell radon mitigation systems. An extra fee is required for Radon testing.

We used Duke Inspection Services for a home inspection in Spring 2018. Dave was very thorough, detail oriented, and went the extra mile to ensure that my wife and I understood what he was pointing out. Of course he caught some of the more obvious items, but what impressed me was his careful eye to catch a couple items that may cause an issue down the line. He also made several recommendations that ended up saving us money, to his own professional detriment. I felt like he truly wanted what was best for us. Highly recommended.
