The Master and Residential Inspectors at Grush Inspections offer decades of combined experience to you when considering the condition of a home.
The experienced on-staff Grush Pest Inspectors perform an inspection is focused on wood destroying organisms, including termites, carpenter ants, wood boring beetles and wood destroying fungus and rot.
The Master Inspectors at Grush Inspections are state certified to perform inspections on all commercial structures, in addition to residences. This includes apartment complexes, motels, office buildings and even large warehouses.
Grush Inspections contracts the services of local heating and cooling contractors for in-depth inspections of HVAC systems. Although the furnace and air conditioner are reviewed in the course of the standard inspection, systems that are aged or unique can be better understood by the contractor, who has specialized knowledge and experience.
The fireplace inspection is more in depth than the inspection by the home inspector, and is a good idea for any fireplace that has seen use, but has not been recently serviced.
Sewer Line Inspections
Sewer lines can pose problems – especially in older homes – but a standard visual inspection can do little to identify issues unless dramatic blockages occur during the inspection. Sewer line specialists use high-tech cameras to view the actual condition of the line. Repair or replacement of sewer lines can cost thousands of dollars, so we recommend this service before the purchase of any structure that is more than 40 years old, or where any known concerns exist.
Wood and Pellet Stove Certifications
If you are buying a home in Washoe County with a wood or pellet stove, an inspection is required to ensure that it is certified as clean burning. Grush Inspectors are certified by the Air Quality Division of the Washoe County Health Department to perform these inspections. Washoe County requires this to prevent the dangerously smoggy winter days that Reno has experienced in the past. This isn’t just a good thing to do for the community, it’s the law. Washoe County levies steep penalties if non-certified stoves aren’t removed.
