HOME INSPECTIONS

HOME INSPECTIONS
Whether buying or selling a home, having the home inspected by a certified home inspector first is sound advice.  A Westview home inspection can not only help to identify potential problems, but it can help to explain how the home works.
Westview's home inspections include review of the following:
 
- Home Exterior
- Drainage 
- Foundation
- Basements
- Crawl Spaces
- Decks
- Roof
- Interiors
- Garage
- Chimneys
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
- HVAC Systems
 

- Pre-Sale Home Inspections

- Pre-Purchase Home Inspections  

 

- New Construction Home Inspections 

- Home Warranty Inspections

Westview encourages clients to be present for inspections.  This is not required, but it does provide an opportunity to discuss issues should they be found.  It also allows us to help show the client how the home works.  Within 24-48 hours after the inspection, Westview provides a detailed report noting any areas of concern and recommendations.  Each report contains photographs, is complete and easy to read.  Should there be additional questions after the report is provided, we're always available to help in any way we can.  

RADON TESTING

RADON TESTING
Testing your new or existing home for the presence of harmful Radon gas can be a life saving decision.  Radon gas is an odorless, tasteless gas that occurs naturally in the earths crust.  It can enter a home through cracks and collect at high levels.  It is everywhere and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia is known for higher levels than normal.  It is a real danger and not one to ignore.  
Westview Inspections is a WV licensed, Certified Radon Measurement Provider and a member of the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP).  We can perform radon testing, of the air or water, to see if the indoor radon levels need to be addressed.  This can be done in conjunction with a Home Inspection or as an individual service.  Many people test their homes every three years just to make sure radon levels are at a safe level.  Being proactive about radon is smart and the responsible thing to do.  Westview can help.
