Your best choice for home inspections and radon testing in Eastern Iowa. With Hanson Home Inspections you get Way More Than Just A Home Inspection!
A whole home inspection is a thorough examination of the major components that combine to form the structural support and working systems in a home. The certified inspectors at Hanson Home Inspections follow the InterNACHI standards of practice and are trained to provide a non-invasive examination of a home’s structure, systems and components. Our inspections include, at the minimum, the following components:
A whole home inspection for buyers will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home buying decision. Buyers are encouraged to attend the inspection, ask questions and learn about their new home. Inspection reports are delivered the same day and we’re always available after the inspection if you have additional questions.
A prelisting seller inspection is the exact same inspection that would be performed for a buyer. There are several advantages of having your home inspected prior to listing it. A seller inspection will alert you to defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before prospective buyers discover them. You can then take the time you need to make corrections or obtain reasonable repair estimates. A seller inspection will show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith, avoid 11th hour negotiations/delays and can justify your full asking price.
Your reputation is your most valuable asset. Your clients rely on you to guide them through a complicated and sometimes crazy process. Demonstrate to them that their trust in you is justified by referring them to Hanson Home Inspections. Our team’s experience, training and professionalism will deliver the information your clients deserve and you expect.
We use a state of the art infrared (IR) camera that can identify problems that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. An IR camera can help reveal problems such as moisture intrusion, inadequate or absent insulation, electrical hot spots, air leaks in ducts and around doors/windows, structural issues, plumbing leaks and more.
The EPA encourages anyone who is buying or selling a home to have it tested for radon. In fact, Iowa has the highest percentage of homes with radon levels above the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) in the United States. You can schedule a radon test with your home inspection to ensure conditions in your home are acceptable.
