WIN Home Inspection Charlottesville recommends all homeowners invest in an annual Home Maintenance Inspection to stay ahead of issues, ensure safety and potentially avoid costly repairs.
WIN offers a Home Maintenance Inspection, a service any homeowner can take advantage of, to stay ahead of the issues, ensure safety and potentially avoid costly repairs.
With this service, homeowners receive an assessment of the home’s condition with a full-service company, and a detailed easy to read report provided within 24 hours, along with four season home maintenance tips. Our highly trained inspectors use innovative techniques, and state-of-the-art equipment for the early detection of home issues.
Radon is an odorless, colorless, and naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause serious health issues over time. It is the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and is only detectable through testing. A trained WIN professional uses state-of-the-art equipment to check radon levels in the home, which can be mitigated once identified.
Hidden issues in sewer lines can cause flooding, mold, structural damage, and result in serious health problems. Highly trained WIN Home Inspectors use specialize, state-of-the-art equipment to check sewer lines for tree roots, cracks, and blockages, while providing recommendations for needed maintenance and repairs.
Well Flow Testing (also known as 'well pump performance') by a trained WIN Home Inspector checks for needed repairs or adjustments to a home’s water flow. During the test, the inspector will determine the rate at which the home well is able to supply a steady flow of water and simulate normal water usage to help identify any issues.
Mold growth in the home can cause serious structural damage and pose a threat to human health. Trained WIN Home Inspectors check for hidden mold growth using specialized equipment to collect air samples, and can also provide mold surface sample testing for visible mold issues. We partner with accredited laboratories to provide professional and fast test results to home owners, buyers, and sellers.
Some potential issues in the home, such as missing insulation or overloaded electrical circuits are not visible to the naked eye. Infrared (IR) thermography allows WIN Home Inspectors to help identify otherwise hidden issues using innovative technology. Once identified, these issues can be proactively addressed, which can result in lower energy bills and a safer home.
Residual traces of methamphetamine in the home can result in accidental consumption of this dangerous substance. Particles on walls, ceilings, and carpets may not be visible to the naked eye. Residue meth testing conducted by a professional in partnership with accredited laboratories can help identify traces of this health risk before it becomes a more serious issue.
