Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, according to the Surgeon General. Radon can enter your home through cracks in the foundation, and because it’s odorless and colorless, the only way to detect it is with a professional inspection. NPI's state-of-the-art radon testing equipment collects data for 48 hours and prints a report on-site, giving you the most accurate test results in the fastest time frame.

Your NPI inspector can check your crawl spaces, attic, carpet and more for potentially hazardous mold. If mold is suspected, microbial growth samples can be collected and analyzed to confirm the extent of the contamination and determine necessary remediation.

Indoor air pollution can be just as big a problem as outdoor air pollution, leading to increased allergy symptoms, asthma and other respiratory issues. A certified NPI inspector can perform air quality testing and provide you with a detailed report of our findings.

An NPI irrigation system inspection covers every visible component of your lawn sprinkler system, including the controller, sprinkler heads, rain sensors or gauges and backflow preventers. Your inspector will test the system to determine proper functionality and lawn coverage.

For homes with a pool or spa, NPI can perform an inspection to determine the functionality of components like the pump, filter, heater and electrical wiring. Pool and spa inspections also give you a clear idea of the safety of the system as a whole, which is essential for families with small children.

National Property Inspections recommends a well flow test to determine potential issues with a well’s connected equipment, such as the pump and storage tank. All visible well components are inspected and monitored for fluctuations and other irregularities which can signal a problem with your well equipment. Your NPI inspector will also deliver a detailed report of their findings so you can order appropriate repairs from a professional well contractor.

If you’re buying or selling a property that draws its water from public water or a private well, National Property Inspections can perform a water quality inspection. Your NPI inspector will collect water samples and send them to an approved laboratory for testing. Well water is tested for nitrates, bacteria and lead to determine its safety to drink.

To extend the life of your roof, choose NPI for your standalone roof inspection. Our inspectors use the latest technology like Telescoping Aerial Photography Masts to thoroughly document the condition of your roof, rain or shine. Identifying issues like warped shingles or worn flashings can prevent big problems like water intrusion and mold growth.

A foundation inspection from NPI Coastal Carolinas can help you identify needed repairs. From bowing and cracks to settling and water intrusion, our trained inspectors know which issues you need to address to keep them from becoming expensive problems in the future. We also provide foundation inspections on manufactured homes at the request of engineering firms and banks.

Termites and other wood-destroying organisms (WDOs) can cause catastrophic damage to your home’s structure if left untreated. Your NPI inspector can identify the presence of termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles and more before they cause irreversible damage.

Your NPI inspector can act as an expert witness to provide testimony in legal disputes. National Property Inspections provides thorough home inspection reports and in-person testimony regarding construction and inspection-related issues that can mean the difference between winning and losing a case.

Using an infrared camera specially designed to identify changes in temperature, your NPI inspector will scan and analyze your home’s walls, ceilings and more. Hot spots detected by thermal imaging can indicate potential hazards such as wiring issues, while cold spots can mean moisture or missing insulation. An infrared inspection sheds light on the small issues you can’t see before they become big problems.

Lead paint was used in the majority of homes built before 1978. Exposure to lead can lead to lead poisoning and other health issues over time. NPI can test for the presence of lead in your home, giving you peace of mind.
