Here’s What We Do!

Our Certified ASHI Inspectors will spend three to four hours thoroughly evaluating all aspects of the property you are purchasing, from the roof to the basement and all areas in between.

And you know what; we want you to come along with us during the course of the inspection. Ok, if you’re a veteran home buyer it may not be as important that you’re there the entire time. However, if you are new to the home buying process, it’s very important that you’re there from start to finish receiving the priceless information we give you so you can make an informed decision about the property you are considering purchasing.

We’ll not only inspect the house you’re buying but we’ll share with you what needs to be maintained and why to keep your home in working order. You’ll get a real education about your new home. Don’t worry, we’ll explain everything in terms you can understand. We are a Jargon Free Company!

Our Home Inspection Reports

Our Home Inspection Reports are generated by our own custom reporting software. Your report will identify any defects, the location within the home, implications of not repairing the defect, and a time frame for action. Digital photos of significant defects are also placed in our reports.

We also provide you with recommended maintenance items and an E-book of how your home operates along with critical maintenance intervals.

Download a sample inspection report right here on our website! Inspection Reports are normally emailed the next morning post inspection but guaranteed 24 hours after the inspection to your inbox.

We do not provide onsite inspection reports. We consider these types of reports to be precisely vague and do not offer home inspection clients a true piece of mind!


Let Me Mention One Other Issue

Radon gas: Unfortunately the majority of the Akron and surrounding suburbs are located in the EPA’s Highest Radon Zones – Zone 1. Not many people, including most real estate professionals, are aware of this issue and the health problems associated with radon gas exposure.

Radon gas is a radioactive gas that seeps into homes through the foundations. And it doesn’t matter if your home is built on a basement, crawlspace or a slab; this deadly gas can seep in and into the home, doesn’t matter if it’s brand new construction or a 100 year old home.

It’s estimated that Radon Gas kills 24,000 Americans each and every year. As a matter of fact, Radon Gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, only second to cigarette smoking.
The good news is that Radon Gas can be detected with a simple test and if the home you’re purchasing has elevated levels of Radon Gas, it can be easily fixed and not too costly. The key to the issue is Getting a Radon Test. Then you know if the problem exists and if so, to what degree.

Please know that I personally would not live in a home in Akron Ohio that had not been tested for Radon Gas!

Robert Lawrence, President

Fact: Prestige Home Inspections tested over 175 homes in Northeast Ohio for radon gas in 2011. Over 32% of these homes had elevated levels above the EPA’s action level of 4.0
