RADON TESTING. Alex is a Certified Radon Measurement Specialist. This is a higher qualification than others, who only can place radon testers and must send them to outside laboratories for reading and results.  We do not depend on third-party, outside labs!  We are certified to place, test, evaluate and interpret the results. Our own NOVAhi™ accredited radon testing means you receive quick, accurate resultsdirectly from us.
NOVAhi™ inspections may take longer than most—averaging 3 to 4 hours—because we are very thorough. Based on visual observations we make every effort to provide the best information which you can use to make good real estate decisions about the condition of the inspected systems and components of a home. In addition to detecting any major deficiencies, we point out issues or concerns that may avoid future expense and repairs, and we recommend possible upgrades to improve homeowner safety and energy efficiency. Your report will clearly explain all the findings so they are easily understood, answer your questions, and make recommendations for repairs. Your home inspection is a home education

We may be referred by your agent, but you hire us, we work FOR YOU and only you, it's that simple.  ASHI inspectors are prohibited from receiving compensation for referrals from realtors and contractors, and from performing paid repairs on houses they inspect. We’ll attempt to find significant deficiencies and report it accurately, objectively, without bias or emotion.
