When purchasing a pre-owned home, how do you know if the previous owner(s) preformed regular maintenance on the home? Are there hidden water leaks in some obscure area under the house or in the attic? How old is the water heater, air conditioner or furnace? A detailed, accurate home inspection by a state licensed home inspector can identify areas that need maintenance, are in need of immediate repair, do not perform as intended or can be a safety concern to you or your family.

Often a clients will ask why they should spend the money on a home inspection for a newly built home. After all, shouldn’t a brand new home be perfect? We have two words for those clients: Construction Oversight.

Construction oversights are when in the process of building a home the installation of components or systems are inadvertently left out. A quality home inspection will find construction oversights and then the contractor can take care of them before the close of the real estate transaction.

Before selling your home its important that every seller be made aware of the potential red flags that could arise during the process of selling your home.

It’s important to minimize any potential issues by finding out what isn’t working properly and fix those issues. It can make selling the home a much more enjoyable process by fixing the concerns before they are viewed as problems. This will also help make potential buyers feel more confident about buying a home that doesn’t have any red flags.

Pre-Listing Home Inspections help establish peace of mind and eliminate potential surprises from buyers down the road. Having a pre-listing home inspection is very valuable to making the home selling process a lot less stressful.

If you are fast approaching your 1 year in your new home that has a builder’s warranty that is about to expire, this would be the time to get a home inspection that explains to you any items that may be hidden from your eye that would need to be addressed. Also it is this time when it is important to make sure you have done your maintenance checks. Some defects found in these inspections are: improperly installed roof flashing, improperly constructed chimney, missing or inadequate attic insulation, foundation problems, electrical safety issues, and air conditioner and furnace issues, among many others. There is also that peace of mind that you have everything in order with your home as well.

We all go to the Doctor for periodic checkups, We all take the car to the shop for preventative maintenance, and have it inspected annually. Why would you not do the same to ensure that your home is running smoothly?

A maintenance inspection will help to prioritize a home improvement list, and to hopefully find out about small problems before they turn into big ones. In some cases, a maintenance inspection will reveal that what was thought to be a small problem has already turned into a big one.

A foundation inspection is where it all starts. To make any decisions about your foundation you must start with the facts the inspection will provide. Our foundation inspections are very thorough and will provide you with valuable information. Our foundation inspectors do their best to be open and honest about any foundation issues you may have. We want to offer a solution that will fix problems, not just temporarily delay them. From a simple and free prevention strategy (like extend your downspout away from your house) to a $10,000 repair they tell you how they see it.
A termite inspection is a visible inspection of accessible areas of a structure for the purpose of identifying wood-destroying organisms such as termites, fungus, dry rot, beetles, carpenter ants and carpenter bees. These items, which indicate current infestation, infection or damage.
In addition to identification of wood-destroying organisms, the inspection will also identify conditions that can lead to infestation or damage such as earth-to-wood contacts, cellulose debris, excessive moisture conditions (leaks, inadequate ventilation), large foundation cracks, faulty grade levels, grout cracks).
Using Infrared technology, our home inspectors are able to reveal things that other inspection methods cannot. For example, thermal imaging enables them to locate missing insulation, missing structural members, moisture intrusion and faulty electrical components hidden within the walls.

No, thermal imaging does not enable you to see through the wall. Instead, our home inspectors are able to detect the temperature variations related to heat and moisture among the building surfaces. Every system and/or object in a residential or commercial property emits thermal energy. Using state-of-the-art infrared technology, they capture those thermal emissions in digital form for diagnosis. Once downloaded, the captured images, are interpreted by our certified inspectors who provide a written report highlighting any safety and/or structural issues that have been revealed.

There are two goals of a mold inspection. The first is to find if and where mold is growing in your home. The second is to find the water problem which caused the mold to grow in the first place.

The obvious reason to have a mold inspection is if you think you have a mold problem in your home. Even if you already know where mold is growing in your home it is a good idea to perform a mold inspection since visible mold growth often means there is more mold growing somewhere out of view.

Whether you are looking to buy a home, sell one, or are just interested in good home maintenance, you want to make sure the air in the home is safe to breathe.
IAQ Home Survey is a low-cost state-of-the-art indoor air quality assessment that can identify numerous chemical sources, whether they are from known sources (e.g., new paint, potpourri, or carpeting) or from mold that might be hidden from view but potentially found during a full home inspection. The IAQ Home Survey analytical report can be utilized to create an action plan to remove or remediate any issues found prior putting your home on the market.
Repair Verification inspections are for clients that would like to validate the level of compliance afforded by their general contractor or builder. A Repair Verification or Re-Inspection is a follow-up inspection to your previous full home inspection, after required or recommended repairs and/or modifications have been made.

When you choose Kingsmen Property Solutions, one of our certified inspectors will re-inspect any component, system or other feature within your property as proposed in their Standards of Practice using an infrared thermal imaging camera where applicable.

Each re-inspection is performed by the original home inspector within 90 days of the initial inspection. The aim is to confirm that work completed only by a licensed contractor(s) was done right and any prior issues observed by the inspector have been resolved. Repair Verifications are conducted under the same guidelines as a regular home inspection.

If your home, facility, or property was built before 1978, you and your family, tenants, or employees may be at risk of lead poisoning. This metal was commonly found in paint before being banned and can still be dangerous, especially to young children. To help protect the people you care about, Kingsmen Property Solutions’ Home Inspectors offer comprehensive testing for the parts of your property that are most at risk.
EPA estimates that around 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the U.S. are radon-related. Radon is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas in soil and water. Kingsmen Property Solutions’ Home Inspectors use the latest equipment to test for radon.
Everyone should have their home or building tested. Radon is well known in most Northern States, but it is getting more attention in the recent years, and there is a big campaign to raise awareness of this radioactive gas. There is a misconception about a home not having Radon because no one else in the neighborhood has it. One will not know for sure until tested.
