Water Testing

A qualified inspector will look for sanitation issues such as coliform bacteria, nitrates/nitrites, and lead. Checking for all three will net you a discount at S & K Home Inspections, so it's worth checking off the full list in one convenient visit.

Exterior & Interior Components

In addition to smaller, individual tests, S & K Home Inspections excels at their comprehensive property inspection services, which cover both exterior and interior areas. Outdoor checkpoints include property grading, sidewalks, and roofing, while heating and cooling systems, windows, and walls are but a fraction of the indoor coverage. A full home inspection is the most thorough option, especially for a prospective home that must be deemed safe before you sign on the dotted line.

Beyond the broad categories, inspections can also be performed on an à la carte basis. These include individual tests for detached garages, crawl spaces, and outbuildings, as well as furnaces and electrical panels.
