Twin Lights Mission:
When a client is in the process of buying a house, so much information needs to be processed. So many factors need to be considered in a very short period of time. It can be extremely stressful! My goal as your home inspector is to help you focus on the purchase you are potentially making, to be a calming, yet informative presence. I aim to give you the vital information you need to make your home buying decision, but not to overwhelm with technicalities. I encourage all my clients to follow me around during the inspection so I can explain the components of the house- in a way even first time home buyers will comprehend. I hope by the end of the inspection- I have properly educated you and prepared you to make your step in your decision. I look forward to working with you!

A buyer's inspection: When a potential home buyer has a made an offer on a home and it has been accepted, the prospective buyer coordinates with the real estate agent and seller to arrange an inspection of the home and property. A Home Inspection is scheduled and performed.

The Inspector will then provide a narrative report with many photos which helps the buyer to make an informed decision about the home.
Radon is an odorless, radioactive gas that rises naturally from the earth. It enters the home easily through open crawlspaces, small cracks and openings in the
home's foundation, or pathways provided by the installation of utilities. Over time, elevated radon levels can have serious health consequences for those living in the home. According to the
Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. Measurement of radon levels can provide peace of
mind, or verify that radon mitigation is needed. Radon testing is an additional service provided, the cost for a radon air test is $85 when scheduled with a home inspection. Stand alone Radon
In order to ensure accurate results, it is extremely important that closed-house conditions are maintained for 12 hours before the measurement begins, as well as during the test.
