Papp and Associates, Ltd. conducts the following inspections: Full
Home and Building Inspections, Pre-Listing Inspections, Construction in Progress
Inspections, and Radon Testing.
Full Home and Building Inspections
A full home inspection is performed, before the contract between the
buyer and seller is finalized. For new construction, it is
recommended that the inspection be done after the builder receives the
certificate of occupancy, just before the walk-through with the
builder. Using advanced
inspection equipment, we carefully inspect each of the following.
If you want to sell your property for the best price, and peace of
mind then, a pre-listing inspection is for you. Nothing is more
frustrating than to receive a contract for sale with a contingent upon
satisfactory home inspection, and then to have the inspection disclose a defect
that was not disclosed to the buyer and the buyer backs out of the
contract. This frustration can be prevented by having us inspect
your home before you list the home with a Realtor or sell the home
yourself. Not only will you receive a full home or building inspection
report, we will also offer suggestions and answers to questions that may
help you sell your home faster. You will have the option of
making corrections to your home, and having a disclosure to give the
buyer. Call, or email us today
to order the inspection.
Construction In Progress Inspections
If you are planning to have your home custom built and want the
satisfaction of knowing you will get the quality and price you
contracted for, then a construction in progress inspection is for you.
You will have a licensed home inspector and contractor working for you
as a consultant during the construction of your home.
Many pitfalls in custom building start
in the beginning. If you are not able to take the time off from
your job during the construction period and have no contracting
expertise, do not try building the home yourself. In most
instances you will not save money and the quality will not be in the
final product. Choose a Professional Licensed Contractor to build

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the
US. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil rock
and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically
moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home
through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon is
especially high in areas where granite is present.
