About Home Inspection Fees
Home Inspection fees vary widely depending on the type of dwelling, the size, the age, and whether there are crawlspaces and detached garages. Fees may also vary depending on season. Please call me at 978 568-8100 to discuss specific fees for your prospective property inspection.
I strongly recommend an additional termite inspection if you are purchasing any type of dwelling that has its own basement and/or crawlspace. I am a NEPMA Certified Wood Destroying Insects inspector and can also do this for you. Fees for termite inspections vary depending on the type, size, and age of the dwelling, and whether the house has a crawlspace or detached garage..
Radon testing is also recommended (radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that collects in basements. It has been linked with lung cancer). If you have a private well, I strongly recommend you have water quality and flow testing done as part of the home inspection. I also provide all of the above testing services.
Lead testing is also recommended for home that have been built prior to 1978. I don't do lead testing but certified lead inspectors can be found at the ASHI-New England links at the following web address: http://www.ashinewengland.org/ashine_affiliates.php.
I am also offering the Neighborhood Environmental Report, a data search of past environmental problems that could affect your property. It includes leaking underground oil and gasoline tanks, hazardous waste spills, and hazardous waste sites in proximity to your prospective property.
