In full compliance with InterNACHI’s Standards of Practice, a Criterion Home Inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property. For each inspection, we provide a comprehensive inspection report with high-resolution images with same-day turnaround upon request. Buyers who have accompanied us say they appreciate our flexible scheduling and maintenance tips. Customers who couldn’t be there in person say that our comprehensive report made them feel as if they were.

Termite Inspection

Termites are no friend to homeowners, so before you decide to buy a home, we strongly recommend scheduling a termite inspection. We’ll inspect your home for signs of existing termite damage and current infestations. 

Thermal Inspections

Thermal Imaging

This inspection service utilizes infrared thermography to check for issues that are not visible to the naked eye. Issues such as plumbing leaks, electrical hot spots, or moisture intrusion. We’ll also be able to check for any areas of heat loss within the walls. 

Radon Inspections

Radon Testing

An invisible and odorless gas with radioactive properties, radon has been linked to numerous health ailments, including serious lung conditions in exposed individuals. Because the gas is so elusive, it’s important to bring in a professional to have a home tested for radon contamination. We’re able to do the job right, using specialized equipment to test the home, while returning the results of the test back to you in a timely manner.
