Further evaluation is absolutely suggested by a licensed marine contractor and is recommended on boatlifts, docks, and seawalls over 15 years. This is not a technically exhaustive inspection and maintenance will be required.

SEWER SCOPE

A sewer scope inspection uses a video attached to a snake-like cable to examine the home’s sewer line. This privately-owned pipeline leads from the house to the publicly owned main sewer line or septic tank. A sewer scope inspection can reveal damage to the pipes, blockages, and other problems. In addition, it can spot potential problem areas before they develop into serious issues or hazards. After the inspection, clients will receive a report with findings and recommendations. This allows homeowners, home buyers, and home sellers to act before extensive damage, health issues, or expensive repairs.

DRONE SERVICES

Drones provide a way to inspect roofs that would otherwise be inaccessible. Often a roof is inaccessible when it is too high, too steep or too wet to safely access. 

PEST INSPECTION

WELL WATER TESTING
