Veriguard Home Inspection Services
Veriguard Home Inspections offers investigative home inspection services to Northern New Jersey. A quality home inspector is a valuable asset to prospective homebuyers, and we take our responsibility seriously. We pay close attention to every detail of a home’s condition, communicating precisely what effect a discovered defect may have on a home’s integrity. We adhere to New Jersey’s strict Standards of Practice.
General Home Inspection
Our buyer’s inspection is a meticulous evaluation of a residential property’s condition. We’ll thoroughly assess the home’s visible and readily accessible features, providing you with a detailed report of our findings within 24-36 hours.
The inspection includes these components:
- Roofing System (including gutters, downspouts, and roof penetrations)
- Foundation & Crawl Space
- Structural Components
- Deck & Patio
- Driveways & Walkways
- Exterior (doors, windows, cladding, soffits, fascias)
- Interior (doors, windows, floors, walls, ceilings, stairs)
- Attic, Insulation, & Ventilation
- Fireplace & Chimney
- Plumbing System
- Electrical System
- Heating & Cooling Systems
- Built-in Appliances
A free thermal imaging scan is included with every home inspection. This process utilizes infrared thermography to determine the temperature gradient of scanned components, revealing potential sources of moisture intrusion. A moisture meter will also be used to measure the extent of moisture penetration inside the home.
We offer these additional inspection services:
The seller of a home should have a comprehensive understanding of their property’s condition before a listing is made. This inspection will evaluate most readily accessible components of a home, cluing you in to safety issues or other defective areas. With this information, you can make repairs as necessary and communicate honestly with prospective buyers—preventing disrupted negotiations once they bring in their own inspector.
It’s natural to feel unsettled by the discovery of a defective component during our inspection of your prospective home. To give you peace of mind, we offer Re-Inspections once defective components have been repaired or replaced. We’ll check for safety hazards or additional issues that need to be addressed by the seller of the home before negotiations continue.
If you haven’t heard of radon, it’s a good idea to do some research so that you can fully understand the risks. Radon is a radioactive gas that forms underground from the natural breakdown of certain types of rock and soil. If the gas is able to rise up into the circulated air of a home, it can cause numerous health problems, including lung cancer. And to complicate matters, radon is both odorless and invisible, making it a challenge to detect. For this service, we’ll utilize specialized equipment that can accurately detect radon inside a home.
New Construction Inspection
Before the contractors have completed construction on your new home, you should consider bringing in a third party to evaluate the property. We’ll look over the readily accessible structural components as well as any installed systems, identifying any safety hazards or material defects that need to be brought to your attention. If defective areas are discovered, you’ll have a chance to pass along the information to the builders before the project is over and scheduling repairs becomes a headache.
Mold can be a burden on both your home and your health if it’s able to go unchecked. This inspection will assess a home for any signs of established mold or moisture penetration that could pave the way for a future problem.
Termites are destructive insects that have a long history of frustrating homeowners, causing costly structural damage to homes that often goes unseen for long periods of time. This inspection will evaluate a home for any indications of previous termite damage. We highly recommend scheduling this inspection before you agree to terms with the seller of your prospective home.
For no extra cost, Veriguard Home Inspections is able to schedule and coordinate specialized third-party inspection services such as Oil Tank Sweeps, Pool Inspections, Asbestos Testing, and Lead Testing. We can arrange for these services to take place on the same day as your home inspection, saving you from the headache of having to coordinate several different specialists yourself.
