WHICH SERVICE DO YOU NEED?
At Firstline Inspections, we offer many different types of home evaluation services such as:
New Construction Inspection
Typically performed for the buyer as a part of the real estate transaction, this inspection provides a full evaluation of a home and what repairs may be needed so that you can avoid surprises and make an informed decision.
Sometimes called the "Sellers' Inspection", it's performed to evaluate what may need repairs to get the home ready for a quick and smooth sale.
Performed on a newly built home. Since (unfortunately) brand-new doesn't necessarily mean well built, this inspection allows you to catch construction issues early, before they become major problems down the road.
Home Energy Evaluation
While a home inspection is always the safest and optimal choice when buying a home, this incredibly competitive real estate market is compelling buyers to make offers that waive contingencies. Waiving the inspection contingency does not mean that the buyer should not get an inspection at some point before closing, however if a buyer does decide to forgo the inspection FirstLine offers a “Walk & Talk” Pre-Purchase consultation as an alternative to the home inspection. The Pre-Purchase Consultation is not a home inspection, but it can help the buyer get a realistic sense of the home’s condition and identify areas that require further evaluation.

Radon is present around the world but can be especially troublesome in in the northern regions of the United States (including Wisconsin and Minnesota). The first step to protect yourself and your family is to check the concentration of radon in the home. Firstline Inspections provides radon testing using specialized continuous electronic monitors to give you an accurate measurement of radon concentration levels.
The home energy evaluation consists a walk-through of the home and a collection of about 40 data points related to energy. These data points are then used to:
estimate the home's yearly energy usage,
pinpoint potential energy inefficiencies,
develop recommendations for energy improvements,
determine potential energy savings,
provide information about the efficiency of the major systems in the home, and
provide recommendations for improvements that can help reduce your energy bills while making your home more comfortable.
Home energy evaluations are provided as an ancillary service for a fee. Contact us to schedule yours today.
