Buying a home can be one of the most exciting and stressful experiences all at the same time. Today's market conditions can add even more stress to this process. Tighter inventories have increased competition among buyers making it a seller's market.
One way to protect your investment is to conduct a home inspection.
Homebuyers are not the only people who hire a certified home inspector. Home sellers and realtors use inspections to determine the asking price and uncover any issues the property might have.
A seller's home inspection can give you a better chance for a fast and easy close. Waiting to long for the buyer's home inspection could cause the deal to fall through.
The ASHI was established more than 30 years ago with the goal of building consumer awareness and the highest standards of the home inspection process.

Radon Gas Inspection
Radon gas is undetectable by sight, smell or taste. Radon is a by-product of the natural, radioactive decay of uranium in soils and rocks and can sometimes be found in well water. The gas is naturally found in the air we breathe, but can also enter a home or building through drains, cracks or holes in the foundation or basement.The radon gas can then become trapped inside the home or building and build up to dangerous levels. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the U.S. and claims about 21,000 each year per EPA estimates. Radon is measured in picocuries per liter of air represented as "pCi/L". The average concentration of radon in outdoor air is .4pCi/l, but the radon levels inside a home that are 4.pCi/l or higher should be mitigated.
Wood Destroying Insects Inspection
A visual inspection is conducted of the readily accessible areas of the structure including attics and crawlspaces (permitting accessible entry) for evidence of Wood-destroying insects (WDI). Wood destroying insects include termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and reinfesting wood-boring beetles.
