Welcome to the Grapevine Home Inspection Services!

Home inspection is a vital part of the home buying process. A qualified inspector will inform you of existing and often potential problems with your new property.

Grapevine Home Inspection Services is a team of professionally trained building inspectors that have been servicing Pike, Wayne and Luzerne counties since 2014.

Mold and moisture damage 

 Moisture infiltration can not only destroy home structural and finish components, it can be detrimental to one's health. Although mold can be found in all homes, it is important your home is at normal levels. During a standard home inspection, visual evidence of mold will be identified on the report. If you are unsure of

what constitutes a safe level, I suggest also having a more extensive mold/moisture inspection. Mold sample trays will be placed in multiple locations around the home then sent to the lab for analysis and report. For more info from CDC, click here.

 

Wood destroying organisms
 a.k.a WDO, covers anything that destroys wood. This includes subterranean termites, dry or damp wood termites, beetles such as powder post beetles. You also may have various infections of fungi that can destroy wood such as white rot and dry rot.

Offer your buyer a pre-sale report 

A smart move for sellers is to provide a pre-sale inspection report. This summary brief report  offers you the seller the opportunity to identify and repair any major issues that may compromise negotiations.  The potential buyer has less anxiety while considering your property.

 
 
Air Quality and Radon Testing 
At minimum, the average person spends a third of their lives inside the home. The quality of the air you breath has substantial impact on your health. Indoor air quality issues include Mold, Radon, Biologicals, Carbon Monoxide, Formaldehyde, Pesticides, Asbestos, Bacteria and Lead. Please read the EPA release, "Home Buyer's and Sellers Guide to Radon" for more information.
