Home inspections can help you buy or sell your home with confidence.
As trained professionals we have seen it all, and we’ll provide invaluable help in turning you into a knowledgeable consumer. Homeowners can identify problems in the making and take preventive measures to avoid costly repairs.
D-Tect provides the following services throughout Northern and Central New Jersey.
In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection.
We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which problems may require immediate attention.
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses and we can help you identify both. We can also determine the severity of the problems within your home if present and can help identify which problems need immediate attention. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.
Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain a home inspector’s list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed.
Our job as your professional home inspector is to alert you to unknown problems and potential environmental hazards in your current or potential house. We perform a non-invasive visual inspection of your property which can alert you to possible environmental hazards. During the course of the inspection we will look for any of the following potential hazards and recommend reliable testing services if we feel such a course of action is warranted.
We are qualified to inspect for these hazards:
- Mold: There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. Molds can produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances.
- Radon: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock, and water throughout the U.S. Radon is a threat to health because it tends to collect in homes, sometimes to very high concentrations. Below we have attached the EPA Consumer’s Guide to Radon Reduction.
- Asbestos: Asbestos material that crumbles easily if sawed, scraped, or sanded into a powder is more likely to create a health hazard because it can be inhaled into the lungs, increasing the risk of disease.
- Lead: Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. In general, the older a home, the more likely it has lead-based paint.
