Certified Well Inspections

When you depend on a private well for your water supply, it just makes sense to schedule an inspection. It can be added to a home, pre-listing, new construction & warranty, or commercial inspection for a reduced rate or purchased separately. There’s nothing worse than turning on a faucet only to discover that the well has malfunctioned or run dry. These types of situations always seem to occur at the most inopportune times when the system is under heavy use, such as holiday get-togethers or during open houses.

Septic System Inspections

Replacing a septic system is not only a huge expense, but it also usually requires extensive excavation of your yard. Avoid this unhappy surprise with a septic system inspection of the home prior to purchase. Ask anyone who’s experienced it—living with a failed septic system is not a fun experience and replacing the system is not a quick fix. An inspection covers the following:

  1. Accessible component checks
  2. Functional flow testing
  3. Site drainage and clearance
