CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTION

The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any hidden problems that could become costly surprises down the road. As professional Home Inspectors, it's our job to look for those hidden problems for you. The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the house. It provides you an expert opinion and professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a house, giving you peace of mind on what is likely the largest purchase you'll ever make. In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes 2-3 hours to complete. This of course may vary, according to the size and condition of the home. We strongly encourage you to accompany the inspector during the inspection. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.

Commercial Inspection

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT WHEN YOU GET A COMMERCIAL INSPECTION It doesn't matter if you're buying a restaurant or a corporate office space, you need to make sure your new building is adequate by your standards and by state law. Ensure both when you hire Stone-South Home Inspections to perform your commercial inspection in Birmingham, Alabama and the surrounding area.

New Construction Inspection

Just Because Your Home Is New Doesn't Mean It's Perfect.If you’re buying a new construction home, you might assume that a home inspection isn’t necessary. After all, you had the house built from scratch and customized to your exact needs. Wouldn’t a home inspection waste your limited time and money? That depends on how you look at it. For many, a home inspection can provide valuable insights into their property’s construction, as well as the chance to prevent costly repairs on the home later on down the line—after all, new houses aren't always without flaws.

Pre-Listing Inspection

Are you selling your home? You can choose Stone-South Home Inspections to inspect your home first, which may prompt the buyer to waive his own inspection contingency. And even if he doesn't, a Seller Inspection means you won't be in for any surprises. The Seller Inspection: allows you to take the time to shop for competitively priced contractors to make repairs, rather than making rushed decisions to get things fixed in a hurry; lets you attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report; and removes over-inflated buyer-procured repair estimates from the negotiating table.

POOLS & SPAS

Protect your investment in an in-ground or above-ground swimming pool, spa or hot tub season after season. Whether you’re about to purchase a new property or already have a pool of your own, getting regular pool and spa inspections can save you time, money and headaches later on. Swimming pools and spas are heavy on the fun, but with that fun comes additional maintenance and potential hazards to consider. By opting for a swimming pool inspection, you’re making safety a priority, too.

RADON TESTING

Radon is a dangerous invisible gas that is found everywhere in the United States. This tasteless, odorless substance can easily get into your home through cracks and openings in the property’s foundation. Radon exposure can be dangerous to your health, which is why Stone-South Home Inspections knows how important radon testing is. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. In the past 30 years, half a million Americans have died from radon-induced lung cancer. As harmful as radon exposure is for adults, the risks are even greater when it comes to children. If there are young children in your home, a radon specialist can test the levels to make sure the house is inhabitable. At Stone-South Home Inspections, we provide an easy and efficient radon test. A continuous monitor is placed in the home, and after 48 hours we collect the data. If the test indicates that your home contains unsafe levels of radon above EPA threshold limits, Stone-South Home Inspections will consult you on the variety of methods for mitigating the radon and reducing health risks for you and your family.

RE-INSPECTIONS

It is vitally important to follow up on the repairs to any defects found during the original home inspection. Scheduling a Re-Inspection with us will allow us to examine the work to make sure that the original defects were performed correctly and that no new issues have emerged during the repair process.
