In addition to general residential and commercial property inspections, NPI offers a suite of services that can be tailored to your specific needs. Below, you will find a list of each additional service offered by your local NPI Grand Rapids team.
NPI Grand Rapids can complete a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of your property, an inspection that identifies either potential or existing environmental contamination. A Phase I report is considered to be the first step in the process of environmental due diligence. NPI Grand Rapids offers Phase I Assessments through a trusted sub-contractor.
Sewer and septic system problems can cause major issues for a home, and NPI can help diagnose them with proven techniques and the latest technology. Your inspector can document issues like pipe obstructions, tree root intrusion and sewer line bellying that can be costly and even hazardous if left uncorrected. NPI Grand Rapids offers Sewer and Septic Inspections through a trusted sub-contractor.
Using an infrared camera specially designed to identify changes in temperature, your NPI inspector will scan and analyze your home’s walls, ceilings and more. Hot spots can indicate potential hazards such as wiring issues, while cold spots can mean moisture or missing insulation. An infrared inspection sheds light on the small issues you can’t see before they become big problems.
Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas and the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, according to the Surgeon General. Radon can enter your home through cracks in the foundation, and because it’s odorless and colorless, the only way to detect it is with a professional inspection. If your NPI inspector finds radon in your home, a radon mitigation system can be installed to keep your family safe.
Termites and other wood-destroying organisms (WDOs) can cause catastrophic damage to your home’s structure if left untreated. Your NPI inspector can identify the presence of termites, carpenter ants, wood-boring beetles and more before they cause irreversible damage.
Regular use of your home’s fireplace creates creosote, a black, oily substance on the interior surfaces of your chimney. Creosote buildup is highly combustible and causes chimney fires, which can melt mortar and create a pathway for fire to spread throughout your home. Your NPI inspector can check for creosote buildup, determine the condition of your chimney and recommend needed repairs. NPI Grand Rapids offers Chimney Inspections through a trusted sub-contractor.
Your NPI inspector can check your basement, crawl spaces, attic, carpet and more for potentially hazardous mold. If mold is suspected, samples can be collected and analyzed to confirm the extent of the contamination and determine necessary remediation.
National Property Inspections recommends a well flow test to determine potential issues with a well’s connected equipment, such as the pump and storage tank. All visible well components are inspected and monitored for fluctuations and other irregularities which can signal a problem with your well equipment. Your NPI inspector will also deliver a detailed report of their findings so you can order appropriate repairs from a professional well contractor. NPI Grand Rapids offers Well Inspections through a trusted sub-contractor.
If you’re buying or selling a property that draws its water from a private well, National Property Inspections can perform a water quality inspection. Your NPI inspector will collect water samples and send them to an approved laboratory for testing. Well water is tested for Coliform bacteria, particulates, mineral content and even radon to determine its safety to drink.
Your NPI inspector can provide many different types of field services, including occupancy status inspections, property assessment and condition reports, insurance risk assessment inspections, REO foreclosures and more. Any of these services can be tailored to your specific needs. NPI Grand Rapids offers Field Service through a trusted sub-contractor.
