Historic and older homes can be charming, but, because of their age, may have more issues than other structures. Gatekeeper has many years of experience in inspecting historic/older homes. We have the expertise to determine the difference between a cosmetic improvement and an expensive repair, and know the special requirements for modifying historic homes. While conducting our 600+ Point Comprehensive Inspection, we pay special attention to areas unique to historic/older homes:
- Components such as outdated plumbing and old wiring.
- Old heating systems, air conditioning, insulation.
- Electrical service that may not be able to support a modern household.
- Water damage, rot.
- Powerful Infrared Cameras -- Used to disclose hidden defects that might not otherwise be found (other companies do not normally provide this service in a general inspection).
- Computerized Report – Provides detailed information about your property, written in simple terms that you will understand, includes color photos to support the findings, and is sent electronically to you.
- Radon Testing – May be requested for an additional fee. Gatekeeper has a Certified Radon Inspector/Radon Measurement Specialist (#7SS009), and its own Radon laboratory, certified by the National Radon Safety Board, which means you receive accurate results quickly.
