There are a few things that I think should be considered when ordering a home inspection. You want to make sure that you get the most out of your home inspection and that you don't waste money or time.
First I think that you should always consider hiring a home inspector based on their qualifications and not solely on price. There are a bunch of reasons for this but mainly that if you hire an unqualified inspector you may not get the inspection you need and deserve. There is a much higher chance that the inspector will miss something major if they have not been properly trained. At Lifespace Inspections we stay current with all of the latest innovations in both training and equipment available to use during your Certified Home Inspection.
Secondly I would strongly encourage everyone to have radon testing done as part of your Certified Home Inspection. Radon is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous radioactive gas that is found everywhere but can have dangerously high levels in your home. It is estimated that radon is the third highest cause of deaths in the US. At Lifespace Inspections we perform a radon test during your Certified Home Inspection or as a stand alone service to the highest quality standards in the industry.
