A home is a complex set of components. It would require numerous specialists — plumbers, electrician, structural engineers, roofers, etc. — to investigate every component, which would become an expensive endeavor. They also can’t promise a fair evaluation because they stand to benefit financially from the repairs. That’s why you hire a home inspector, a generalist, who can identify deficiencies and give you sound advice.
An inspection with Northbank Home Inspection means you’ll get independent analysis of the home’s systems and an inspection report that is chock full of images, videos, comments, and recommendations. All of our home inspections also include free thermal imaging.
In addition to getting a home inspection, you may be concerned about other environmental hazards in your home, such as radon and mold. In Vancouver, WA area elevated levels of radon, which is the second-leading cause of lung cancer, are found in one in four homes. Additionally, with the persistent northwest rain, there’s plenty of moisture seeping into homes and creating conducive environments for mold to grow. Northbank Home Inspection offers expert radon testing using a continuous electronic radon monitor that produces hour-by-hour results and mold testing of the indoor air that is analyzed by an independent lab. These services can be completed with your home inspection or as a stand-alone service.
