For landlords/managers, it gives you independent, third party documentation of the condition of the property before or after leasing, a great way to help protect your investment. Your inspection also documents normal versus abnormal wear and tear when done both before and after a tenant's lease.
For renters, it's a great way to ensure that you don't overlook something when you fill out your damage list and then end up getting charged for a pre-existing condition when you move out. You have so many other things on your mind, let us handle the thorough inspection you need to do to protect yourself. Also, we can take you through the property and explain how to use the various appliances and systems you'll be living with.
Whether you're the landlord or the tenant, you'll receive a written report, with pictures, that includes repair and maintenance recommendations.

Some had us inspect their current home years ago when they moved in and hired us again to do their next home as they upgraded or downsized. Some hired us when they bought their home, and hired us again when their children bought homes. And some saw us inspect the home they were selling, and then hired us to inspect the home they were buying. There must be a reason so many keep coming back when they need us.
You can put our experience to work for you when you call today to schedule your appointment, 913-268-0222. Complete Home Inspection. The numbers 17 and 10,000 add up to peace of mind for you when you're buying or selling a home.

A great sales tool is to have your home inspected BEFORE you put it on the market. That gives your prospective buyers the peace of mind that comes from knowing the condition of your home at the time of the inspection. It may save them money since they won't need to have the property inspected themselves. It makes your disclosure form very complete and detailed. And, it may be the difference that helps them choose your house instead of the others they've looked at. Watch this...

Examples? In one new house, we filled the whirlpool bathtub in the master bath as part of the inspection. When we drained it, and the water ran out all over the bathroom floor and flooded the rooms underneath, we discovered that the tub's drain pipe hadn't been connected to anything. In another new house, we were able to determine that the control wire for the furnace had been connected to the doorbell instead of the house's thermostat. A couple of weeks into your first winter in the house, you'd wonder why the house only felt comfortable when the pizza guy rang the doorbell.
One more horror story for you, a new house's kitchen garbage disposal worked beautifully, once it was plugged in. No power cord had been connected to the unit until we figured out what the problem was. While warranties may protect you, the time lost, the inconvenience and the frustration you'll experience can only be handled by getting a Complete Home Inspection for your new property.
Call today to schedule your inspection, 913-268-0222. Whole house inspections, radon testing, mold testing, and termite inspections, we can do it all for you.

The best ways to combat a wet basement are to clean out your house's gutters and to grade the dirt against your foundation so that it slopes away from the house.
As your gutters fill with leaves, seed pods, and other debris, they overflow during a hard rainfall instead of draining as intended. That puts an unusually heavy downpour of water right near the foundation of the house. As that water soaks into the ground, it can easily find any cracks that might be in the foundation wall and then find its way into your basement. Sadly, in the Spring and in the Fall, you may need to clean your gutters every few weeks to keep them flowing smoothly.
Adding fill dirt up against your foundation and gradually sloping it away from the house encourages the water to settle elsewhere, out in the yard, where it doesn't do any harm. The amount of fill dirt you'll need will vary according to your yard. To avoid attracting termites and causing wood rot, the dirt shouldn't touch wood siding. But, make sure that it creates enough of a slope so that the water will easily flow downhill and away from your basement.
Call today to schedule an inspection for your property, 913-268-0222. Radon testing, mold testing, and termite inspections available, too.

When we test for mold, we look for visible mold to sample and we also check the air in the house for invisible mold spores. The key is to find the cause of the mold. Mold needs moisture to grow, so we look for moisture entry points like leaky roofs, basements, or water pipes, anything that could add moisture to a mold problem.
Having a mold test done, perhaps along with your home inspection, gives you added peace of mind for your family’s health and safety. Call today to schedule your inspection and/or mold test, 913-268-0222. Whole house inspections, radon testing, and mold testing, we can do it all for you.

Since your deck is outside 24/7/365, the wood deteriorates and the fasteners lose their integrity. And, with the snow and ice we had last winter, your deck may have sustained some stress damage. Get your deck inspected, fix any problems, and then enjoy your summer of fun with some peace of mind.
Call today to schedule your inspection, 913-268-0222. Whole house inspections, radon testing, mold testing, and of course, deck inspections, we can do it all for you.
