Property Inspection

Property inspections make good sense whether buying, building or selling. Understanding your home’s systems and components are critical when it comes to purchase, repair and maintenance decisions.

  • What is Included in the Inspection?
    AccuSpect will provide a thorough, comprehensive, professional, and unbiased report on the condition of the home - your key to a sound investment!


    How Long Will it Take?
    The average inspection takes three to five hours depending on the size, age, and condition of the property.


    Should I be There?
    We strongly urge the prospective buyer to be present for the walk-through at the end of the inspection. By being present, you will have a far greater understanding of your new home and the report.


    About the Report
    We are proud to provide the highest quality reporting system available. The Inspectvue Computerized Report is a highly detailed narrative style report that is typically between 20 and 25 pages in length & includes digital photographs of anything that is of concern or particular interest. This very comprehensive report covers Structural, Exterior, Roof/Attic, Plumbing, Electrical, Heating & Air Conditioning, Chimney, Living Areas, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Common Areas & Garage.

    You will also get a summary report that just details items needing attention & also includes the digital photographs.


    When Do I Receive My Report?
    The report is available the same day – either e-mailed to you or you can access the reports via the internet with a web address and password given to you at the time of the inspection.


    What is Radon?
    Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the U.S. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home can trap Radon inside.

    Any home can have a Radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.

    Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. is estimated to have elevated Radon levels. Elevated levels of Radon gas have been found in homes in Georgia.


    Why Should I Test my Home for Radon?

    Everyone should test their homes for one of the leading causes of lung cancer in the country: indoor Radon gas. In some areas of the country, as many as one out of two homes has high levels of Radon. Radon levels can soar during the colder months when residents keep windows and doors closed and spend more time indoors.

    "Twenty-two thousand people die from lung cancer each year in the United States from exposure to indoor Radon". "Yet Americans could help prevent these deaths and protect their families by testing their homes for Radon as soon as possible." Christine Todd Whitman, Former EPA Administrator.


    Which type of Radon test do we perform?
    We perform a Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) test which takes readings every hour over a 48 hour period. Averages are taken from these readings (using EPA test protocols) to determine the level of Radon concentration in the home.

    Based on a national residential Radon survey completed in 1991, the average indoor Radon level is 1.3 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) in the United States. The average outdoor level is about 0.4 pCi/L.

    Levels higher than 2.0pCi/L are considered a potential health hazard, and a level of 4.0pCi/L or more should be mitigated.

    Comments from Satisfied Clients...
    "Thank you, thank you for the very thorough job you did inspecting our home. By finding the moldy spot under the dining room floor and noticing that the dining room wall seemed damp, you have saved us many thousands of dollars in repair work. It turns out, the entire wall was rotted away inside from water damage. Our daughter has asthma, and the mold situation would have been very bad for her health. We are very thankful to have found this out, so that it can be fixed before we close on the house. Your services were definitely worth every penny!" Shane & Amy Bussler

    "I have reviewed the home inspection report you prepared for our home. I found it to be very thorough and reassuring. I appreciate your professionalism and excellent work." Kim Cook

    "We were so lucky to have AccuSpect working on this property. Gary does a first class inspection and your customer service is exceptional and so appreciated. Thank you so much!" C. Wolski

    "We were impressed with your professionalism and knowledge. You also took time to explain everything to us in a way we could understand. I am definitely going to recommend your services to the next crew relocating to Atlanta from sunny Orlando." M. Kleg.

    "Mr Edge's professionalism, experience & integrity are a credit to his profession and I would highly recommend him to anyone who requires his services." D. Peebles.

    "Gary was very thorough in his inspection of my home and was in no rush to answer all the questions I had. He came back again the following day at no extra charge to explain a concern I had, and recommended ways of rectifying the problem. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, reputable Home Inspector. " A. Young.

    "His work - accomplished with characteristic thoroughness, knowledge & ability to clearly describe each item in his reports - has enabled both the listing agent & myself to minimize time and frustration and to channel our efforts toward meeting the needs of our clients. Through his outstanding professionalism and exceptional performance, Gary earned my respect & confidence." Coldwell Banker Realtor.

    "Thanks, again, for all your hard work yesterday. Mac and I enjoyed meeting with you and appreciate your thoroughness. We enjoyed working with you!" S. Traxler
