Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified™ home has been pre-inspected, which means that the seller can confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement, and no known safety hazards. A Move-In Certified™ Seller Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. We will provide you with a Move-In Certified™ yard sign to help attract potential home buyers. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home inspected now. (Visit MoveInCertified.com for more information.)
Northeast Indiana counties are within an area of the US with the highest radon levels. Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it is also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths. Nearly one out of every 15 homes in North America is estimated to have elevated radon levels. Millions of homeowners have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too. I will use specially calibrated canisters to test for radon in your home. If they show elevated levels, I can make recommendations for how to mitigate the problem.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that mold is a health hazard. Not only can mold cause negative health effects, but unchecked mold indoors can damage the structure of a home, cause wood rot, and ruin drywall. I will investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and I will take mold samples for laboratory analysis and report the findings back to you with a recommendation on how to eliminate the problem, if any.

While I'm conducting your Standard Home Inspection, hire me to perform a Home Energy Inspection. I will collect about 40 data points related to energy. I will then use an advanced energy calculator developed by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors to:
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. I will come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder's warranty expires. Our non-invasive inspection is based on observations of the visible and apparent condition of the interior and exterior of the structure, including its major systems and components. Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any material defects observed on the date of the inspection. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they're still in force.
