In addition to general residential and commercial property inspections, NPI offers a suite of services that can be tailored to your specific needs. Below, you will find a list of each additional service offered by your local NPI Name team.
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.
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.
If you live in an area prone to storms, you could save money on your insurance premiums by getting your property ICC Wind Certified. Our NPI inspectors examine areas of your property susceptible to failure in strong winds, such as roof shingles, shutters and structural elements, to ensure that proper wind mitigation techniques have been employed.
Vacant homes need care and attention, and National Property Inspections offers many preservation services to keep your property well-maintained. From lock changing and winterization to lawn care and snow removal, we maintain your vacant property with regular documentation and reports to give you peace of mind.
Sewer and septic system problems can cause major issues for a home, and NPI can help diagnose them with proven techniques and the latest technology. Your inspector can document issues like pipe obstructions, tree root intrusion and sewer line bellying that can be costly and even hazardous if left uncorrected.
National Property Inspections can help you maintain an energy efficient home. Using thermal imaging cameras, blower doors and other advanced technology, your inspector will perform a complete energy audit to reveal air leaks, under-insulated areas and more.
Home Watch services from NPI give your vacant residence an additional layer of security. Whether you’re on vacation or own a second property, your inspector can conduct scheduled visits of your home, checking on essential components like electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. Home Watch services from National Property Inspections give you peace of mind while you’re away.
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 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.
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. If your NPI inspector finds radon in your home, a radon mitigation system can be installed to keep your family safe.
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.
Regular use of your home’s fireplace creates creosote, a black, oily substance on the interior surfaces of your chimney. Creosote buildup is highly combustible and causes chimney fires, which can melt mortar and create a pathway for fire to spread throughout your home. Your NPI inspector can check for creosote buildup, determine the condition of your chimney and recommend needed repairs.
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.
For homeowners and home buyers wishing to apply for a 203(k) loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, your NPI inspector can guide you through the rigorous and complex process. We’ll provide you with a detailed report documenting the condition of the property along with recommended repairs to bring it up to HUD’s Minimum Property Standards, as well as optional renovations to exceed the standards.
Your NPI inspector can check your basement, crawl spaces, attic, carpet and more for potentially hazardous mold. If mold is suspected, samples can be collected and analyzed to confirm the extent of the contamination and determine necessary remediation.
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 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 Coliform bacteria, particulates, mineral content and even radon to determine its safety to drink.
Your NPI inspector can provide many different types of field services, including occupancy status inspections, property assessment and condition reports, insurance risk assessment inspections, REO foreclosures and more. Any of these services can be tailored to your specific needs.
