Additional Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Home Inspection Services

Pre-Listing Inspection

We can inspect your home before you list it on the local market to help make the whole process a little less stressful. By raising awareness about potential defects in the home’s construction, you can take action to preserve your property value by having defective components repaired. Even if you choose not to make repairs before trying to sell the home, you can still discuss the defective areas with prospective buyers so that negotiations don’t fall through after a buyer brings in their own inspector.

New Construction Home Inspection Services

New Construction Inspection

When the builder notifies you that the final walkthrough will soon be taking place for your prospective home, you should call us as soon as possible to set up this inspection service. We’ll inspect the entire readily accessible structure of the home, including any currently installed mechanical systems. Should we find safety issues or otherwise defective components along the way, you’ll be given a thorough summary of the issue so that you can make arrangements with the builders and the seller of the home to put repairs in place before final closing. 

11 Month Warranty Home Inspection Services

11th Month Warranty Inspection

A new home’s warranty will cover the cost of specific repair and maintenance issues if they’re diagnosed before the warranty expires—usually within one year. For this inspection service, we’ll comprehensively evaluate the home’s readily accessible areas, providing you with a full report of any issues we encounter so that it can be determined whether the builder will be responsible for the cost of repairs. 

Maintenance Home Inspection Services

Home Maintenance Inspection

For a Home Maintenance Inspection, we’ll evaluate your home to search for areas that are in need of basic maintenance or more extensive repair. We’ll then recommend the best strategy for taking care of your home’s current maintenance needs. Doing this annually will help you preserve the value of your home while also keeping it safe and comfortable.

Re-Inspection Home Inspection Services


This inspection service will involve us returning to a property we’ve previously inspected to re-evaluate specific components that were found to be defective. We’ll carefully examine any repaired or replaced parts to make sure that the area of the home in question is no longer posing a problem—giving you the confidence to continue working toward a final real estate transaction.

Radon Testing

Radon Testing

Radon exposure is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. after cigarette smoking. This inspection service will evaluate a home for unsafe levels of radon gas using state-of-the-art technology. The gas is odorless and invisible, so this detection technology is necessary in order to determine if your prospective home is affected. 

Water Testing

Water Testing

It’s ill-advised to invest in a home without knowing whether or not the water supply will be safe for your family. For this inspection service, we’ll take a sample from both the tap and well to be tested for contaminants at a local laboratory. A few of the potential contaminants that we’ll be looking for are coliform bacteria, nitrates, and heavy metals.

Mobile Home Inspection Services

Mobile Home Inspection

Sometimes it’s difficult to find a home inspector who is also able to evaluate mobile homes—but at Carlson Complete Home, we’ll be more than happy to thoroughly inspect mobile homes for our clients. We’re highly knowledgeable about how mobile homes are manufactured, and we’re prepared to inspect each readily accessible area to help you determine whether or not the home is in safe and sound condition.

Mold Testing

Mold Testing

For this inspection service, we’re able to conduct both air and surface swabs of a home to determine if a mold issue is present. Even small amounts of mold can cause allergy problems, and often, areas of confirmed mold will also clue us in to structural issues that are facilitating moisture intrusion inside the home.

Septic Home Inspection Services

Septic System Inspection

This inspection service is designed specifically to check for damage or other deficiencies in a home’s septic system. We’ll perform a dye test to determine the ability of the field lines to function properly.
