Home Inspection Checklist - MTS Inspections

What Is A Home Inspection?

So, the first question to answer, is what is a home inspection? A home inspection is a thorough examination of a home’s exterior grading, structure, plumbing system, heating and cooling system, and electrical system in addition to exterior finishes, roofing materials and the proper installation of a home’s countless other elements.

At Mountains to Sea Inspections, we spend the vast majority of our time looking at these systems and not cosmetic issues which are quite visible and easy for our clients to pick out. We want to focus on what we consider the big ticket items and those items which are not seen as a client looks at a home with their real estate agent.

It should be noted that while these inspections are exhaustive we are limited by what is visible and accessible at the time of inspection and the current conditions of the property as they exist at the time of inspection. State ordinances will not allow a home inspector to deconstruct or otherwise alter a property in order to complete an inspection.

How Is The Home Inspection Report Delivered?

How is the home inspection report delivered? At Mountains to Sea Inspections, we utilize the HomeGauge Reporting Software. This reporting software allows our home inspectors to produce a high quality digital report that not only allows to insert marked up photo details with a text description, but also allows for the insertion of videos and other customization to provide the most detailed home inspection reports in the market.

These digital reports are delivered into your inbox, generally within 24 to 36 hours of the completion of your home inspection. Once you receive the notification email you can view the report in PDF format, share the report with sub-contractors for estimating and can even prepare a repair request from the report. This is an extremely helpful feature that helps our clients and their real estate agents prepare a request of the items that must be addressed based on the home inspection report.

Your report will be saved on HomeGauge’s secure server and may be viewed 24/7/365 and may be utilized by the original client as needed, when needed.

Radon Gas Testing - MTS Inspections

Why Should I Test For Radon Gas?

What is Radon Gas? Radon gas is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that is prevalent in the natural environment. Radon gas is created through the degradation of uranium. Uranium is found in igneous rock, such as granite, and soil, and can also be found in well water.

Why You Should Test For Radon Gas! According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Surgeon General’s Office, radon gas is responsible for approximately 20,000 lung cancer deaths each and every year in the United States. Behind smoking, radon gas is the number two cause of lung cancer in the U.S. and costs over $2 billion dollars per year in both direct and indirect health care costs.

Radon Gas is easy to test for, so why not have your radon gas test performed today and remove any doubt about the air quality in your home. Radon gas is also easy to mitigate for, but you have to know that it is there!

Water Testing - MTS Inspections

Whats In That Glass of Water?
Why You Should Test Your Water

In the U.S. we are spoiled in that when we get thirsty we simply walk to the sink and turn on the tap and get a drink of water. But, do you stop to think whats else is in the water?

Water can contain contaminates such as E. coli and bacteria that can make you very sick and in rare cases, KILL YOU! Besides making you sick your water can stain your plumbing fixtures, cause accelerated deterioration of plumbing systems and lead to costly repairs.

The good thing is water testing is relatively inexpensive and can provide a wealth of information about what is contained in that glass of water. Water testing can range from a simple E. coli test & bacteria test, to make sure it is safe to drink, all the way up to a well scan that can provide further information such as concentrations of nitrites, nitrates, iron, copper, lead and also tell you the pH, the turbidity and levels of chlorine.

Stop guessing about the contents of your water and have a water test performed today!

Make sure you choose an inspector who brings that field experience to your next commercial investment property.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspections

Annual Home Maintenance Inspections

We spent $100,000’s of dollars buying our homes and yet we spend less time and effort maintaining these investments then we do our cars!

Your home is just like any other machine. It must be maintained and cared for to keep it running as long and as efficiently as possible. Thats why Mountains to Sea Inspections provides annual home maintenance inspections on variety of tiers to meet any budget.

Items Investigated During Maintenance Inspection

  • Roof Inspection

    Roof Inspection

    The roof is quite possibly the single most important element that protects your investment. Tiny leaks and missing shingles could lead to costly water damage and expensive replacements. Or, if caught early could be a cheap repair!

  • Electrical & Plumbing

    Electrical & Plumbing

    Are all your electrical safety devices working? Have you looked recently to make sure your plumbing valves are not leaking?

  • Foundation Inspection

    Foundation Inspection

    You could avoid catastrophic foundation issues if you have your foundation periodically inspected for settlement issues!

  • HVAC Inspection

    HVAC Inspection

    Your largest consumer of power may not be running as efficiently as you think. Just because its running does not mean its running well. A properly tuned HVAC system will run years longer and for less $$$.

  • Water Infiltration Inspection

    Water Infiltration

    One of the most damaging items we discover during the course of inspection is moisture problems which can lead to structural problems and environmental hazards such as mold.

Our inspectors have YEARS of experience in the construction industry. Need referrals to qualified sub-contractors and remodelers, just ask!

Paul was knowledgeable, professional, and prompt. He spent time during the inspection pointing out and discussing items that were very good as well as those that concerned him. His report was prepared and delivered the following day. This was the second inspector that we have worked with through Mountains to Seas and based on our experience with them we highly recommend this more

Working with Erik Sorensen was a very positive experience. Erik was prompt, thorough and detailed. The report he generated was extensive and his attention to detail aided us in the negotiation process. He was respectful of our home and our pets, too! Because I was at work and unable to tend to this detail I made a request of Erik related to the radon inspection. He was kind enough to take time to open the windows in our home to ensure our parakeets could have the fresh air they were used to once the radon inspection was complete. Thank you very much Erik. I would use your services again and recommend you without a second more

The inspection process went smoothly from beginning to end. Robert was very kind, easy to talk to, and very thorough with the inspection. Any and all questions, or concerns were addressed promptly, and we left with more knowledge about the house and comfort in the buying process than we could have hoped for. Would highly recommend anyone going with Mountains to Sea for any inspection more

Mountains to Sea Inspections performed a pre-inspection report to help us identify areas that needed repair so that we could get our family home in shape to sell in a highly competitive market. The inspector was experienced, professional and very thorough. His report was organized, well written, comprehensive and included lots of pictures.

Brian at Mountain To Sea Inspections has been nothing but a pleasure to work with. We landed on a price upfront, and when the project turned out to be bigger (longer) than expected he happily and professionally handled it in strides. Reporting was very detailed and the software he uses makes it easy to notate and share the data, and he delivered it very quickly. He allowed me to follow him around for two days straight sharing with me his findings, and making recommendations of fixes and/or providing referrals for professional intervention when required. Would absolutely use more

Would absolutely use these guys again!! Brian completed our inspection and found multiple issues (much to the sellers' chagrin). We were able to renegotiate the price of the house because of Brian's hard work. If we need to complete the inspection process again, we will 100% be asking MTS to do it for us. They were awesome and worth every more

Brian was EXTREMELY thorough, as an inspector should be. He was also friendly & responded to emails & texts promptly. I hired MTS to drive all the way up to my area, since they were HIGHLY recommended. It was well worth the extra expense. Brian saved me from purchasing a fixer upper that turned out to be a disaster. Then, on the next house, he gave it a thumbs up, but showed me a handful of things that needed to be done asap, and others that should be fixed when I can get to them.I highly recommend these people!!!read more

My wife met with our Home Inspector Brian for a thorough review of a house we were looking to purchase. And this is where she comes in on the evaluation. “Brian is amazing! He was to the point, thorough, crawled into areas a mouse couldn’t fit, gave very direct answers to all my questions, let me follow him without concern. I’m the inquisitive one in the household and really need to understand the existing foundation in preparation for renovations and stability purposes. Brian arrived on target and didn’t leave until he finished the job and addressed all my concerns. The bonus point for me, where Brian really struck gold, is he had the final report in my hand within 24 hours! Who does that now days!! He isn’t the slightest bit intimidated, wish washy or elusive. I love this guy. If you hire him - you will not have a single regret. Beyond worth the price of inspection.” C. Roseread more

These people are the consummate professionals. They provided a very detailed inspection report, that clearly covered every facet of the home we are purchasing. They were then quick to respond to questions and to provide additional details, when requested. The home they inspected was the third home I have purchased in the past ten years, and their inspection was, by far, the most thorough and detailed. This all gives me great confidence as I approach the closing on this home. I am very thankful we found themread more
