for more details. Warranty Inspection
Most builders provide a one-year warranty
for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections for
the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent
to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will
be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal
down the road. Environmental Services
In addition to your Home Inspection, Home Quest can
also provide you with some optional but recommended environmental testing.
See our Environmental Issues
page for more information.
- Radon: The EPA recommends testing for Radon. Radon is a naturally
occurring radioactive gas found in soils, rock, and water throughout the U.S. A high level of Radon can be a threat to health
because it tends to collect in homes, sometimes to very high concentrations. See Radon FAQ.
- Termites or other wood-destroying organisms: These pests can cause serious damage to wooden
structures. See Termite Facts.
- Water contaminants (public or well water): Drinking water, especially well water, may contain
several contaminants, some of which are hazardous, and some not. Nevertheless, even when the water supply appears safe, problems
can be present. We always recommend testing well water for bacteria, physical & Inorganic Chemicals, and Radon. See Water Testing
