An NPMA-33 inspection report is issued with the findings of the report and inserted into the Pillar To Post report binder.

Radon Testing

Testing is performed using EPA and state protocol for home sellers and buyers. A passive radon monitor is placed in the home for a 48 hour minimum testing period by a State of NJ Licensed Radon Sampling Technician. A Sampling Report is mailed directly from the lab to the client. Someone from our team will be available for an explanation of the lab report. If a reading of 4.0 pCi/l or higher is detected a retest will be required. If the retest also comes in above 4.0 pCi/l, than a Radon Mitigation Specialist should be contacted for advice.

Bulkhead Inspections

A visual examination of the bulkhead wall and attached components is performed. The examination is designed to detect material defects or installer error, that has or may result in structural failure or personal injury. All areas where damage is suspected will be probed. Water entry is sometimes required for this inspection and is at the discretion of the inspector. When scheduling please consider that these inspections should be performed, at, or as close as possible to, low tide.

Mold Inspection with Air Samples

This is an initial step to determining if a home has a mold problem. The Inspector will perform a visual examination of all accessible areas of the residential home which is designed to identify current or past moisture problems which may lead to mold contamination. The client is encouraged to attend the entire inspection. Up to four air and/or surface samples will be collected and sent to a laboratory for analysis. Laboratory results are available in approximately 3 to 5 business days. If the report analysis reveals elevated mold readings the next step is consultation with a Certified Industrial Hygienist for advice on remediation.

Pool Inspections

The pool and its associated components are visually inspected to identify any structural or surface defects by a Certified Pool Operator (CPO). The electrical and safety components, including but not limited to, gates, fence, ladders and railings, are also evaluated. The pool pump and filter are tested to insure they operate as intended.

Above Ground Storage Tank (AGST) Certification (Oil Tank, etc. Testing)

A Certified Inspector will take measurements of the tank’s thickness, using cutting edge ultra-sound technology. Prior to this technology, a decision to replace a tank was usually made only after it has already leaked. This reactive approach is obsolete and quite frankly, not smart. With our new proactive approach to inspecting AGST’s, homeowners and home buyers no longer have to wonder when their tank is going to start leaking, wait until a tank starts leaking, or make the mistake of replacing a good tank just because it is old. We are the only home inspection company in the area that is qualified or equipped to perform this test.

Well Water Yield Test

A water meter is connected to the well water hose bib, while the water runs for at least one hour to determine the amount of water the well is capable of supplying.

Asbestos Sampling

When asbestos is suspected, a bulk sample is taken and sent to a certified lab for analysis. The lab than confirms if asbestos exists in the sample, the type of asbestos present, and the percentage of asbestos in the sample. Lab results are typically available within three to four business days. If asbestos is detected, the next step is to consult an asbestos specialist for advice.

The following services are not provided by our inspectors. We have negotiated discounted rates with local contractors for clients who book through our office.
