What To Expect
We pride ourselves on customer service and the thoroughness of our inspections. We strongly encourage prospective buyers to accompany us during the inspection, ask questions, and above all become familiar with their new abode. The inspection will typically take approximately 2 to 4 hours depending on size, age, and complexity. When the inspection is complete, the inspector will provide a synopsis of the findings and generate a comprehensive report with color photos. Additional services, if requested, may be detailed in separate reports and delivered via email upon completion of the testing protocols and/or receipt of independent lab analysis after the initial inspection.
We offer clients added services as well as a professional home inspections 7 days a week. These can be scheduled alone or combined with our home inspection packages for even greater savings. Additional services include:
- Phased New Construction
- Final Pre-Settlement
- Mold Inspection and Testing
- Radon Measurement (48 Hour Turn-Around)
- Water Testing for Radon
- Well Water Testing (Basic & Comprehensive)
- Asbestos Testing
- Sewer Scope*
*Identifying blockages, tree root intrusion, or damaged, separated, crushed sewer service laterals can prevent costly backups. Since a sewer line replacement can range from $3,000 to $25,000 depending on distance, depth, complexity (think driveways, walkways, and trees or other vegetation) it is advisable to have the sewer line inspected from the house to the sewer connection or sewer tap especially for homes constructed before 1980.

Customer and Real Estate Agent Feedback
“Thanks for all your efforts on our inspection Matt. You did a great job and so thorough. We were a little leery about buying a 140 year old home but you were so knowledgeable and reassuring that we felt that by the time you were done going over every corner that we had a good handle on the issues. We will be happy to refer others to you.”

“Matt, all I can say is thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU! I’ve been moved around a lot for work. I guess you could say that I am a home inspection veteran. This is the first time I’ve used Pillar To Post but I will never use anyone else again. You took your time. Explained. And… answered all my questions. You were patient and knowledgeable. When the home inspection was over I felt like I knew that house top to bottom.”
— Satisfied Customer

“I can’t thank you enough for looking at the roof again! You really put the client at ease. Was there a leak? Yes. Do roofs leak? Yes. Was it fixable? Yes! And that is what she needed to hear. Perfect! I will be talking you up in our team meeting this week. We will be using you again.”
