Vetter Home Inspections provides Residential Home Inspections to Central North Carolina, including Wake, Durham, Johnston, Harnett, and Chatham.
Our unique system allows us time to carefully guide you through a tour of your house at the conclusion of the inspection allowing you the opportunity to ask questions. Note taking is not necessary as you will receive an extensive narrative report designed specifically for the home. As an agent you can feel confident that we sensitive to what is truly important in an inspection so as not to burden the buyer with non-essential information.
This is often a forgotten inspection because people don’t feel it’s as necessary as the pre-closing inspection or the 1 year warranty inspection. However, some of the most critical components of your home are hidden behind the walls. Our Pre-Drywall Inspection evaluates the condition of your new home’s major systems – plumbing, HVAC ducts, electrical, structural – prior to concealment.
In the first year your home moves more than any other time. It has to go through it’s first expansion and contraction or summer and winter. During this period your house settles typically causing cracks, creeks and possible structural issues. Do you know a structural crack from a settling crack? Our inspectors are trained to know the difference in cracks and when they are a problem. We document all the issues we find so you have a comprehensive list for the builder.
No matter where you are in America, your home may be exposed to dangerous radon gas. Radon is a natural, radioactive gas which is produced when uranium in the Earth’s crust decays, and turns into radium. Outdoors, radon will naturally dissipate harmlessly into the atmosphere as it rises through the crust. But in homes, it can become trapped, which is dangerous for the health of you and your family. Radon is colorless and odorless, and it is extremely carcinogenic.
We will take one sample in your home and one sample outdoors so that we can let you know if the general level of mold spores in the home is abnormal. This will paint a general picture of the mold spore types and quantities that you may be breathing in. We have chosen the industry leading Breeze ET Environmental Tester for accurate results.
Surface testing involves taking samples from household surfaces to find the amount of mold growth and spores deposited around the home. Samples are typically collected by swabbing or tape lifting. The sample is then examined in a laboratory. Like with air testing the results can vary because mold growth and spores aren’t spread evenly across surfaces in the home and can change over time. Unlike air testing though, surface tests can’t identify the exact concentration of mold spores in the air.
