Residential Home Inspection

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is considered a non-invasive visual examination of your home.  At Clarity we go above and beyond the typical home inspector standards.  We provide a detailed report including images of each defect.  We also invite every client to join us during the inspection to make sure that they have a clear understanding of what we are doing and what issues the home may have.

Why do I need a home inspection?

Simply put, because you need to protect your investment and make sure that you are informed on the condition of the home you are looking to purchase.  Don't leave yourself open to expensive surprise repairs just after closing.  We pride ourselves in working efficiently with the upmost integrity to insure that YOU have the knowledge needed to feel secure in your decision.

What all is inspected?

I take pride in examining every component possible from top to bottom during an inspection.  This includes the Roof, Exterior, Basement, Foundation, Crawlspace, HVAC, Plumbing, Electric, Fireplace, Attic, Full Interior and more.  For a full list of what is inspected and view the standards of practice I follow please click the link below.

Radon Testing

Radon Gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer

Medical research shows exposure to high concentrations of radon gas can cause health complications including lung cancer.  Having your home tested for radon is the first step to a safe living quarters.

What is Radon Gas? – Radon is a radioactive element that originates from the natural decay or uranium found in soils just about everywhere.  1 out of every 15 homes across the U.S. are reported to have elevated levels of radon. In the north-central region of Kentucky, including Louisville, the areas with the highest instances of radon issues are in Jefferson County, Bullitt County, and Nelson County. 

Where does it come from? – Radon typically moves up through the ground into the air.  While this happens just about everywhere and is not harmful out in the open air, it can be dangerous when trapped in a home.  It rises up through small cracks in the home's foundation and gets trapped inside the home.

How can it be controlled? – If there are elevated Radon levels detected, mitigation means can be installed.  The most common is a vent pipe and fan system installed beneath the home to pull the radioactive gas through the vent and outside the home.

Is it expensive? – We make your safety affordable by offering a flat $150 fee for a home radon test no matter the size of your home.The process takes roughly 48 hours to ensure an accurate reading.
