Inspection Services

A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any existing problems along with recommendations for follow up repairs, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision on your purchase.

We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them.

All of our home inspections include Thermal Imaging and Drone Photography (when necessary) at no extra cost.

Sewer Scope

For a sewer scope, a trained, professional inspector will run a specialized, flexible borescope camera, which feeds images and video to a monitor. Then, this camera is run through your home’s drainpipe, to examine the sewer lines and other underground pipes for any flaws, imperfections, or serious problems.

Wondering what to look for during the inspection? You’ll typically watch the video feed throughout the process. You and your inspector will be looking for:

  • Serious clogs or blockages in the sewer line
  • Cracks, damage or imperfections in the line
  • The type of material used for the line (clay, concrete, plastic, metal, etc)
  • Roots growing through the line
  • Separation or failure of the line
  • Potential damage or issues with the septic tank (if present)

Radon Testing

Hi-Tech Home Inspections uses Airthings Corentium Pro continuous radon devices which are regarded as one of the most accurate and reliable testing devices on the market.  Our radon tests are conducted over 48hrs for most real estate transactions and longer tests can be conducted if necessary.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in the soil, it’s a gas that moves up through the soil to the atmosphere.
  • ​High radon levels have been found in all 50 states and in all parts of Colorado.
  • In Colorado, about half the homes have radon levels higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommended action level of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L):

Well Inspection & Water Analysis

Many homeowners tend to forget the value of good maintenance until problems reach crisis levels. That can be expensive. It’s better to maintain your well, find problems early, and correct them to protect your well’s performance.  Proper well construction and continued maintenance are keys to the safety of your water supply. Private water systems, while also vulnerable to contamination from bacteria, usually have no governmental oversight. If you rely on a private well, it is your responsibility to ensure the water is safe to drink. You should inspect the condition of your well regularly and test a water sample every one to two years.

Our water analysis tests include total chlorine, total hardness, iron, pH, total alkalinity, copper, nitrates and nitrites, lead, total coliform bacteria, pesticides, iron bacteria and hydrogen sulfide.

Our well inspections cover the well head, well casing, well pump, pressure tank, pressure switch and electrical components.  We also conduct a flow test to determine how many gallons per minute the well is producing.

Drone Photography

Drone Photography

Roof Inspections are pretty straight forward, except when they are not. Hazards and the inability to access using a ladder may prevent other inspectors from being able to inspect the property roof. Hiring an inspector who cannot fully inspect the roof could cost you thousands!

Infrared Thermal Imaging

Infrared Thermal Imaging

What is Infrared Thermal Imaging and why do I need it in my home inspection? Simply, thermal imaging uses infrared technology to detect very small differences in temperature. Every material has a unique thermal signature, when moisture, heat, or cold is introduced into a building structure the thermal signature changes. With the help of an infrared camera we can see many things that simply are not detectable to the naked eye.
