Our inspections include a detailed evaluation of your home’s electrical, plumbing, and the heating and air systems, but that’s just the start. With a thorough home inspection report from expert home inspectors, homeowners can fully understand the condition of their home or property before they finalize their purchase.
Existing Home Inspections
When purchasing an existing home in the Atlanta area, you need to know everything about the property and its current condition. Some homes in the Atlanta area can have underlying problems that surface once you move in, which can cost you thousands of dollars and possibly the safety of you and your family. At Top to Bottom Home Inspection Service, we focus on identifying and explaining these concerns so that you can make an informed decision.
New Construction Home Inspections
When building a new home in Cumming, Buford, Dacula, or anywhere in Northeast Atlanta, owners are hoping to avoid any problems that are associated with an existing or pre-owned home. While a newly built home is a great option, there can still be concerns during construction, such as items that are overlooked or do not comply with the codes applicable in the State of Georgia. These can be minor or life safety concerns.
Our three-phase home inspection service is for clients looking to have a home built in cities like Dacula, Suwanee, or Lawrenceville. We will inspect three different aspects of the building process: the slab or foundation prior to concrete being poured, the rough in framing (pre-drywall), and then the final inspection once the house has been completed and is ready for occupants. Our job here is to ensure that every part of the build, from the ground up, is monitored and up to code. Not only does this help you, the buyer, but it also helps the builder eliminate the need to return to the house to make any adjustments or repairs.
11-Month Builder Warranty Or Anniversary Inspections
Once you have lived in your new home for a while, you may have noticed some issues with your home that may have gone overlooked before closing on the home, or that arose during your time in the home. We offer these warranty or anniversary inspections that can be completed prior to the expiration of your 1-year warranty with the builder. If issues are uncovered, then they can be fixed by the builder and help the homeowner feel satisfied with their property.
One of the best times to have a newly constructed home inspected is the pre-drywall or rough-in phase of construction. At the pre-drywall phase of construction, all of the framing and roughed in plumbing, electrical, and HVAC are fully visible for inspection. This gives our expert pre-drywall inspectors the perfect chance to ensure your home is safe, secure, and ready for the next construction phase.
Radon Testing Services
Radon is an invisible gas that is odorless and comes from the ground. It has been determined that radon gas can cause cancer if a person is exposed to excessive amounts over a prolonged period of time. Radon can be present in areas with rock formations. We offer tests that can determine if radon is present in the home and at what levels.
Mold Inspections and Air Quality Tests
Mold is a serious health hazard that can cause respiratory problems and other health issues. Mold can be very hazardous for young children, older adults, and anyone else exposed to high levels of mold, especially people with allergies. One of the most important steps in the buying process is knowing whether or not mold is present in the home you want. During our home inspection, we visually inspect for mold. If mold is present, we offer additional tests that can determine what types of mold are present and at what levels. These tests can also determine if the types of mold present are dangerous to humans. We also offer this as a stand-alone service to anyone who is concerned about mold in their home.
