for your Safety and Security
Our goal at 2 Rivers Inspections is to detect any major defects and past, present or potential problems that might affect the homeowner’s safety, finances or enjoyment of the property. We provide professional home inspections with well-documented written reports on the condition of the property. We check the interior and exterior as well as outdoor components such as driveways, sidewalks, decks and patios. Our process includes checking and testing all accessible and visible elements of the property, and our written report clearly states our findings and any recommendations for repairs or updates that might be needed. We include photos and other resource information that might be helpful to the homeowner in the future.
We do the due diligence for you with our professional evaluation, analysis and documentation regarding the condition of the property. Our home inspection analysis will give you confidence as you protect your investment and make future decisions about your property. This holds true for homeowners, rental property owners and property managers as they build equity and create budgets for anticipated repairs, replacement projects and discretionary property upgrades.
Home buyers tell us that having this critical data is a key factor in their decision-making process. It helps them better understand the investment and its ultimate effect on their financial stability, comfort and safety.
Our inspections include the following accessible and visible evaluation checkpoints as well as building code compliance:
Exterior building components— structural, roof, flashing, vents, chimneys, gutters, downspouts, siding, caulking, windows, screens, doors, garage doors, trim and lighting.
Interior building components— structural, attic, insulation, ventilation, walls, doors, windows, floors, foundation, crawl space, fireplaces, stairways, all rooms, storage and closet spaces. The home will also be checked for past or present water damage, insect or rodent issues.
Systems— mechanical, heating, cooling, humidifier, plumbing, drains, electrical, water heater, water softener, water pressure, circuits, fuses, fans, outlets, switches, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, laundry and kitchen appliances and alarms.
Outdoor and grounds— driveways, sidewalks, stairs, decking, balconies, porches, patios, handrails, retaining walls and grading of property away from the building.
Radon testing— Also available from our certified radon inspector at an additional charge is a current check of the interior radon levels. The analysis will include a full report on the fluctuation and acceptability of the levels, the potential risk to the occupants and suggested measures to decrease radon exposure within the home, if needed.
