All American Home Inspections has a number of certifications to perform our best. The study for these certifications developed a trained eye dedicated to identifying and reporting on issues that many other home inspectors may leave unnoticed. This is an area where All American Home Inspection goes over and beyond to inspect, report and advise for you.
Moisture in building materials can destroy structural integrity and nurture mold. We use Infrared Thermal Imaging cameras to try to find moisture in houses. Fresh paint and new tile can conceal stains and other defects. After running the plumbing fixtures, a scan of the interior surfaces can reveal leaks that you cannot see with the naked eye.
Indoor air quality issues that can harm you or your family include mold, radon, biologicals, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, pesticides, asbestos and lead. Working with a certified Indoor Air Consultant can help you identify these issues in a perspective home.
It is estimated that of the 45 million existing decks, only 40% are completely safe. Bad deck construction and rotted wood could lead to injury, including rail failure, or total deck collapse. A proper deck inspection relies heavily on the professional judgments of the inspector, that is why All American Home Inspection has additional certification specifically in decks for your saftey.
Home inspectors, for the most part, do not perform thorough roof inspections, but All American Home Inspections has certification as a professional roof inspector. Roofing inspectors climb up on the roof and issue reports on: possible movement, condition of roofing materials, ridges, caps and drip edges, soundness of drains, downspouts and gutters, flashing around roof pipes, chimneys, vents, valleys and mounting of HVAC units. All American Home Inspections believe in thorough home inspections for your saftey and peace of mind.
There are two goals of a mold inspection. The first is to find if and where mold is growing in the home. The second is to find the water problem which caused the mold to grow in the first place. Mold could be hidden inside walls, ceilings, floors, the basement, in crawl spaces, the attic, as well as HVAC equipment and ducts. With our mold inspecting experience and knowledge of spots where mold most often hides, you can be sure that if there's any mold in your perspective home All American Home Inspections will find it.
